Rowing Blazers x Seiko 5 Sports Watch (Limited Edition 2022)
Limited-edition Rowing Blazers x Seiko 5 Sports watch featuring a colorful, vintage-inspired dial; steel bracelet; monogrammed crown; “candy cane” second hand; and case back adorned with our Derry Bones “Tempus Fugit” motif. Designed by Rowing Blazers Creative Director Jack Carlson and vintage watch expert Eric Wind of Wind Vintage in partnership with Seiko.
Each watch comes with both a steel bracelet and includes an additional, specially-designed nylon strap, and comes in a special-edition co-branded presentation box.
The different designs are as follows: SRPJ57 (orange dial, steel bracelet with additional green-and-white nylon strap); SRPJ59 (lime dial, steel bracelet with additional purple-and-black nylon strap); SRPJ61 (azure dial, steel bracelet with additional crimson-and-yellow nylon strap); SRPJ63 (black dial, steel bracelet with additional black-and-croquet-stripe nylon strap).

Stainless steel cases and bracelets. Bilingual day and date calendars (English and Japanese). Edition of 888 per design. Made in Japan.
40mm diameter. Adjustable. According to Eric Wind: "These wear slightly smaller than the quoted size because of the shorter lugs, offering a wide appeal."
Jack Carlson, Rowing Blazers Creative Director: “With our first Seiko collaboration last year, I was bowled over by the enthusiastic reception for our take on the iconic Seiko dive watch both within and beyond the watch community. When Seiko asked us to do another, I was inspired by my own 1970 Seiko 6106-7107 70m Sport Diver, with a bright orange dial. I also really wanted to have both Japanese and English days of the week, and to do something slightly smaller than last time.”
Eric Wind: “I first became aware of this smaller model with a smooth bezel two years ago. We quickly decided that this would be a great platform for the next Rowing Blazers x Seiko 5 Sports watch as we could focus on the dial and hands. We wanted to design a collection that reflected the spirit of Jack’s 6106-7107, using colors that are sporty, fun, and complementary. We kept the now-iconic ‘candy cane’ second hand and ‘Tempus Fugit’ case back from the first Rowing Blazers x Seiko collaboration.”
