In the 1960s, Seiko announced itself on the international sports timing stage with a whole new generation of high-precision equipment endorsed by international sports federations at many of the world's leading sports events. The glass-blue colour and sunray pattern of the dial is designed to represent the crystal trophy awarded to athletes in high profile competitions, whilst the bracelet with black hard-coated centre links has a modern sport style, exclusive to this limited edition model. Conveniently solar-powered, this watch charges from both natural and electric light.
Brian has worn a Seiko diver’s watch for over 40 years, purchased on his first ever trip to Japan in the 1970s - since when his guitar and his watch have travelled the globe together, making great music, keeping great time. The latest gold accented design, inspired again by his ‘Red Special’ guitar, highlights the donations which will be made from the proceeds of this watch to the Mercury Phoenix Trust.
The third chapter in the Black Series is inspired by three of Seiko's most iconic vintage-dive watches. All models have been reimagined using an all-black case and dial design that is brought to life through orange accents that recall the undersea environment of a night diver and the colour of their lamp.
