"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. 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 "Pepsi" 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." - Jack Carlson
