Last week I took delivery of the WIRED (Seiko sub-brand) AGAT729, a watch made in collaboration with Kojima Productions and limited to 1,500 pieces, sold only in Japan. Luckily I was able to find a Japanese retailer that boasts free international shipping and I placed my order the day they went on sale. It’s a quartz movement, but the chronograph measures out to a tenth of a second, something none of my other watches do. There are a lot of really neat details on this piece, like the minute indices being printed on the crystal, the neat texture from 5:00 to 9:00, and the subtle gold inlay around the 1/10 sec subdial and the date window.
I swapped the rubber strap it came with for a black NATO strap with gold hardware to match the accents on the watch. It fits my wrist quite well; I’ve been enjoying wearing it. There’s even a bit of lume on the hour indices and hands!
