The five new 37mm references share a bold, angular design across both case and bracelet inspired by the King Seiko KSK watch from 1965, which at the time was the second King Seiko model and the one that went on to define the look associated with the name. Here sharp lines and mirror polished facets lend the model the same distinctive feel.
One model features the same silver sunray polished dial found on the original KSK, while red, brown and black models are also available. A light grey option offers a fine vertically brushed finished in place of the sunray polishing.
The 12 o’clock applied hour marker is double to the width of the other eleven and is given an eye-catching checkerboard pattern that plays with the light.
The pronounced “glassbox” crystal has a slimming effect on the stainless steel case, which contains a 3Hz Calibre 6R31 automatic movement with a 70-hour power reserves.
The King Seiko Collection drops in February via Seiko, priced $1,700 USD.
