Japanese artist AUTO MOAI has used the Seiko 5 Sports watch as a canvas for their latest work, two limited edition pieces carrying the artist’s Faceless Figures motif.

The dials and casebacks of both 42.5mm stainless steel watches feature AUTO MOAI’s Faceless Figures, whilst the calfskin leather straps are printed with artwork designed exclusively for this project.

Both watches are water resistant to 100m and use Seiko’s 3Hz 4R36 automatic movement, which has a power reserve of 41 hours, while the base color of the case is created using Seiko’s “black hard-coating” process.

Each piece is serial numbered and presented in an “art book” style presentation box, which includes a booklet featuring the custom strap artwork.

AUTO MOAI, who deals with the tacit connection between people on the street, works in the same kind of anonymity implied by their work, with almost no information offered about their identity, except for their birth year of 1990. The artist’s breakthrough came when their work was used in Supreme’s A/W 2018-19 collection.

The Seiko 5 Sports AUTO MOAI Limited Editions drop on May 14, priced £420 GBP ($584 USD) with the mainly white SRPG43 limited to 1,500 pieces and available via Seiko retailers, while the mainly black SBSA125 is a Seiko boutique exclusive, limited to just 300 pieces.

In other watch news, one of just two known turquoise-dialed Rolex Daytonas sells for record-breaking amount.
