It's a Swiss automatic chronograph. A $100 seiko will be quartz movement. That seiko will probably tell time more accurately, but the finishing and detail along with the movement is what makes it more "expensive". It's a luxury item. It tells time like a $50 Casio does

Considering he specifically compared against a Seiko, your point about history is irrelevant. Seiko is, by far, more relevant to the watch industry in terms of history and technological contribution.

As to why the watch is worth far more than $100, it's mostly because of the mechanical chronograph movement. Granted, you can still get mechanical chronograph for under $500, it's a matter of taste at that point. Some brands have better fit and finish, some brands have a certain image that people want.

Here's an (extreme) example of the workmanship and intricacy of a mechanical chronograph: https://youtu.be/wSmydTlc8e4

Based on your question, you should just get a $100 Seiko

It is Swiss and has a history. A $15 Walmart cheapo will also tell time just as well. BMW vs Toyota argument really.

Not familiar with this brand, What exactly makes this worth paying $995 over let's say a $100 Seiko and keeping proper maintenance?

There's a date at the 9 o'clock position. Hard to see but nice that it's subtle.
