SEIKO Spring Drive Spacewalk Watch

SEIKO Spring Drive Spacewalk Watch

When game designer Richard Garriott took his spacewalk as the sixth space tourist in 2008 he wanted a watch that could not only survive the journey but function normally in space. SEIKO stepped up to the challenge to create the Spring Drive Spacewalk Watch. Battery powered watches couldn’t be used for safety reasons so the engineers had to develop a watch with mechanical spring drive movement, not to mention a watch that could withstand temperatures from minus 20 Celsius to plus 70. Right now most people can’t imagine a need for a super airtight watch that works in space, but one day when we all live on space stations in search of a new planet to colonize we’ll surely be wearing SEIKO Spacewalk watches.
