Another Seiko 5 Sports and Honda Super Cub collaboration has been unveiled. Joining forces for the third time, the new collaborative timepiece also serves as a celebratory release that marks the Seiko 5 Sports model’s 55th anniversary, Honda’s 75th anniversary as well as 65 years of the Super Cub.
The design draws inspiration from the Super Cub C100 which was first launched in 1958. In continuance with Seiko and Honda’s former collaborations, the new reference also comes in a 42.5mm stainless steel case. The dial takes on a contrasting palette of dark blue, gray, and white, with the eleven, twelve, and one o’clock hour markers made to resemble the C100’s headlights and blinkers.
A Honda Super Cub emblem logo graces the watch’s caseback, which comes attired in a red-hued and semi-transparent Hardlex crystal. Inside, the 4R36 automatic and manual-winding caliber powers the watch with a 41-hour running time, complete with a 10-bar water resistance.
The latest Seiko 5 Sports x Honda Super Cub watch is released in a limited production of 7,500 pieces only. Retailing for £350 GBP (approximately $442 USD), it’s now available via Seiko’s website, and select stores.
