Following their collaboration last year, Seiko and Rowing Blazers have teamed up for yet another take on a Seiko 5 Sports watch. This time, the East Coast prep-wear icon looks to the watchmaker’s SRPJ61 diver as a canvas. While the 2021 release, which utilized the SRPJ91, saw the color palette more unhinged, the aesthetics get honed in for this follow-up.
Inspired by Seiko divers from the ‘70s, the collection features four watches, each of a different solid-color dial: green, blue, orange, and black. However, while three of the variants sport lumed gray hour markers and candy cane second hands, the hour markers on the black dial version are full of color. Likewise, the see-through caseback is decorated with the clothier’s Derry Bones figure.
Co-designed by Rowing Blazers’ Creative Director Jack Carlson and Wind Vintage’s Eric Wind, the timepieces each have a 40mm stainless steel case, equipped with a steel bracelet. Additionally, every watch has a secondary nylon strap in its own unique color (e.g., the green dial accompanied by a purple strap).
Limited to just 888 pieces for each variant, the Rowing Blazers x Seiko 5 Sports Watch 2022 Limited Edition comes in a special presentation case and is priced at $495.
