Founded by former World Motocross GP champion, Taichi Yoshimura, TAICHI is a Japanese motorcycle gear brand that produces some of the world’s finest riding gear. And TAICHI’s relentless pursuit of uncompromising design and craftsmanship are qualities shared by fellow Japanese company, Seiko, which has just partnered with the Osaka outfit to release a limited-edition collaboration in the form of the Seiko x TAICHI RSA300 Divers Watch.
Waterproof to 200m (656’), the diver is powered by a mechanical self-winding Caliber: 4R36 movement. Enshrouded in a 45mm stainless steel case with a hard matte black coating and protected by a Hard Rex lens, the watch’s face (and rotating bezel) boast subtle nods to motorcycle speedometers and brake rotors, as well as branding for both companies involved, plus a date window. The all-Japanese item is also paired with a 22mm silicone band that allows for ample wrist movement when, for example: manipulating a clutch lever. And, in addition to featuring a specially-etched and serial-numbered case-back and an over-sized screw-down crown emblazoned with TAHICHI’s logo, each limited edition RSA300 comes in an ultra-rugged Pelican 1150 hard-case. Limited to only 300 units worldwide, the Seiko x TAICHI RSA300 Divers Watch is available now, with pricing set at $680.
