Rowing Blazers x Seiko
We have teamed up with Seiko to release a capsule of three Seiko 5 Sports watches. Designed by Rowing Blazers founder and creative director Jack Carlson and Seiko’s Product Development team, two of the watches are limited editions of 500, and one is a special edition.
"Collaborating with Seiko is a dream come true. I have a small collection of both new and vintage Seikos, and I'm obsessed with the brand. This is our first real foray into the world of watches -- though we often sell vintage Seikos on our site -- and I couldn't imagine a better partnership. I'm very grateful to my good friend and watch rabbi Eric Wind for making the connection and assisting with the design process.” says Rowing Blazers founder Jack Carlson.
Each watch has a special case back emblazoned with one of our "house codes," a contemplative skeleton, as a memento mori: a reminder that time flies. Each watch also has a Rowing Blazers logo on the dial and comes in a special steel case in our signature zig-zag pattern, with both a bracelet and an alternative nylon military strap.
"The bezels are the really distinctive thing about the three watches. I wanted this capsule to be understated, subtle -- but also fun. I wanted the watches to be very wearable -- but to have a sense of color and irreverence. One has a “rally” bezel, which of course is an homage to Seiko's archives and one of my favorite things from vintage Seiko. Another has a four-color red-blue-yellow-green bezel: to me, this is a tribute to the '90s and a very Rowing Blazers flip on the classic "" bezel. And the final watch has a zig-zag bezel -- one of Rowing Blazers' most distinctive motifs. This one also comes with a military strap in Rowing Blazers' multicolor "croquet stripe."
Additionally, each watch purchased will also come with a limited-edition black, dad hat with the Seiko logo on the front and Rowing Blazers logo over the arch on the back.
