Seiko 5 Sports Marks 55th Anniversary of Ultraseven with Limited Edition
The Ultraman follow-up was first broadcast in 1967
Seiko is celebrating the 55th Anniversary of Japanese television show, Ultraseven, with a limited edition Seiko 5 Sports watch.
The watch pays homage to the first Seiko 5 Sports watch that debuted in 1968 – one year after Ultraseven was first broadcast – and carries the colors and design cues of the show’s Ultra Guard task force with the words “Terrestrial Defense Force” carried on its fabric strap.
The follow-up to the iconic Ultraman, Ultraseven, follows the Ultra Guard as it seeks to defend Earth from extraterrestrial threats.
Ultraseven’s distinctive silhouette is replicated on a red-tinted glass caseback and each piece is individually numbered.
The 55th Anniversary Ultraseven x Seiko 5 Sports Limited Edition drops in January, limited to 3,400 pieces and priced £380 GBP or $410 USD.
Elsewhere in watches, cycling series L’Eroica teams up with Unimatic.
