SEIKO in this way to show the technical force is beyond doubt, it is the vast majority of the professional watchmaking Swiss watch factory is far less, and this 9R86 watch is the highest achievement of the SD program , So we have the need to discuss it here.

Special product for 9R86 special development clever use of its unique face plate configuration.
Spring Drive (hereinafter referred to as SD) may be the history of modern watches the most special invention, it is designed to combine the advantages of mechanical watches and quartz watch, the general mechanical watch to balance the left and right swing control, but when The power gradually weakened, the winding torque becomes smaller, will affect the accuracy, and then frequently 28,800vph frequency, will also cause parts loss, and SD to operate in one round of the magnetic wheel instead of the traditional escapement structure, the substantial advantages Mainly in the premise of maintaining the accuracy of the quartz watch both the powerful torque of the mainspring power, torque, then the more able to drive more than the needle, the structure of complex functions, is conducive to the development of high-level complex functions of the watch.
Now referred to the SD when the time often cited a rather ambiguous information, it is SEIKO Seiko developed nearly 30 years of technology, in fact, although this concept is indeed in the seven or eighties at the time of the proposed , But by the end of the 1990s the actual product between the SD plan has been shelved many times, SEIKO really put into the R & D hours should be about 5 years. It is the culmination of the development of quartz technology at that time; how to miniaturize components and use them more effectively is the subject of continuous development of quartz technology, which is no exception today In the early 1980s, the focus of SEIKO's internal movement was naturally concentrated on this one. One, not long after their attention turned to Solar solar power and Kinetic human power, SD plans and therefore shelved.
SD really back to the table again after the 90s, but this time SEIKO its expectations is no longer as the evolution of the quartz movement, and then the revival of the mechanical watch has been up, the table sector has gradually begun to fine , SEIKO re-proposed the purpose of SD, on the one hand is to keep up with the mechanical watch, on the one hand is to create an exclusive technology, so that they can occupy a place in this new market.
The next ten years SEIKO fight is almost the topic, but from the results, we can almost have to SD can not meet SEIKO began to expect it, the high-level table market has evolved to a product of the final Can not decide the success or failure of the brand situation. But SEIKO in this way to show the technical power is beyond doubt, it is the vast majority of the professional watchmaking Swiss watch factory is far less, and this 9R86 SD project is the highest achievement , So we have the need to discuss it here.
SEIKO Seiko "Cal.
Cal.9R86 / automatic winding / hours, minutes, seconds, date display / two time, chronograph function / diameter 30mm / thickness 7.6mm / 50 stone / shock 28,800vph / Spring Drive, Magic Lever two-way automatic Chain, guide column wheel, vertical clutch
Spring Drive is the essence of the peak
Mentioned SD's highest achievement, some people may think that CREDOR little self-ming, wise or three asked the table; of course, these several high-level complex features are extremely excellent works, but here we are a movement Value is its versatility and expansion, and SD from the beginning to show a very strong strategic attempt, so 9R86 this basic timing movement of the real significance is indeed more significant. From the actual product line development point of view, 2007 9R86 launch is SEIKO push SD peak, follow-up and continue to have new models launched.
A long time off the mechanical chronograph movement
9R86 is SD's first chronograph movement, but in fact SEIKO before it has not been introduced for a long time mechanical chronograph movement; 9R86 SEIKO only mechanical chronograph movement only 6S series, and 6S system is 1998 Their home just returned to the mechanical watch when the battlefield launched, after the millennium equipped with 6S series of products decreased year by year, until the 9R86 launch on the eve of SEIKO mechanical chronograph only a few small number of CREDOR only, so the industry look at the attitude of 9R86 , Is not so much the first movement of SD, as it is SEIKO long time the mechanical chronograph movement.
All zero to the development
9R86 uses a guide wheel and a vertical clutch, which now seems to have been the basic specifications of the new generation of chronograph movement, but in the movement was introduced when the benchmark in the industry was about to shape; SEIKO in this point when the retrospective To 1969 automatic chronograph movement when their home launched Cal.6139, this movement is known as the world's first vertical clutch chronograph movement, but in fact SEIKO do mechanical watch Know How after the quartz revolution almost Completely interrupted, in 1998 they developed 6S system is almost from scratch, and 6S is the level of clutch, so 9S86 R & D is all from scratch.
High-end movement of the rack
SEIRO active three chronograph movement, 9R86 and 8R28 are column column vertical clutch, but if the zero into the body into account, then the 8R28 may be more functional; 6S series is 14 years ago, the product , The operation feel is the best of the three. But compared with the other two, 9R86 more high-end movement of the rack, the board of the most Xi Lian, polished polished the most beautiful, and the production of the most difficult parts of a full 416, even beyond a lot of high Order complex function, coupled with the scarcity of SD itself, so 9R86 with the table is the highest among the three prices.
The layout of the product
9R86 in the first few years of the introduction of a large number of product lines, in addition to the beginning of the GS, GLT and Seiko Spring Drive, but also for the 9R86 special development Izuru, Spacewalk and so on several special products, these special products clever use 9R86 unique face plate configuration, it is indeed a few years the industry is worth mentioning the table, but after that the focus of SEIKO to the mechanical watch, SD's new products then decreased year by year; 9R86 SD is the ultimate product, but In my opinion is the SD program stop-loss point, in determining 9R86 still can not lay the market size for the SD, SEIKO also simply let go.
SEIKO Seiko "Cal.
9R86 more high-end movement of the rack, the board of the most Xi Lian, polished polished the most beautiful, and the production of the most difficult parts of a full 416.
