Two Limited Editions Join Seiko 5 Sports Collection

At a time when technology is constantly evolving and modernity often dictates trends, the watch world is witnessing a captivating resurgence of retro watches. Harking back to bygone eras, these timepieces embody the charm and craftsmanship of vintage designs while seamlessly blending with contemporary functionality. Japanese watchmaker Seiko is no exception in this work.

The latest example – and a very impressive one – is the Seiko 5 Sports Heritage Design Re-creation Limited Edition, available in two references, the SRPL03 and SRPL05. Breathing new life into popular designs from the late ’60s and early ’70s, they feature a sporty elongated cushion-shaped steel case, a date-and-weekday display through a prominent window, and the crown at the 4 o’clock position. The luminescent dial, framed by a unidirectional bezel and available in blue and silver color ways, bears the original Seiko 5 logo.

Incidentally, since the collection’s debut in 1968, the number 5 has referred to the five attributes of the original: automatic movement, day-and-date display, crown at 4 o’clock, pressure-resistant case, and an overall robust design.

These attributes also apply to the SRPL03 and SRPL05. The 38.5mm wide and 12.5mm thick steel case is water-resistant to 100 meters and houses the automatic caliber 4R36 with 41 hours of power reserve. The bracelet is similar to the original, but was improved for wearability. A retro-style leather strap is also included.

Limited to 9,999 pieces each, the Seiko 5 Sports Heritage Design Re-creation Limited Editions will be available from July 2024 with a sticker price of $450.
