Sector Urban 450 Chronograph Watches Are Refreshingly
By Meor Amri Meor Ayob
This year, Sector unveiled three Chronograph 450 watches, each powered by a Swiss made quartz movement and housed in a stainless steel case. The case measures 48mm and it is shielded with mineral glass. The water resistance is 100 meters. The dial comes with three sub-dials and a date aperture at the 9 o’clock position.
The screw-down crown and chronograph pushers are located on the left side. Sector used applied Arabic numerals 4, 8 and 12; engraved numerals 2, 6 and 10, and engraved indexes which indicate odd hours. Two chrono counters are located at the 6 o’clock position and at the 12 o’clock position, whilst a small seconds sub-dial is placed at the 3 o’clock position. A tachymeter scale with white Arabic numerals is also included.
The leather straps that come with certain models are ridged with double stitching. The model that comes with the rubber strap has the brand etched into the rubber with a yellow spine running along the middle.
This series is not expensive. I like the stainless steel version. If Sector is able to design an automatic/mechanical model, I’ll definitely get one.
