A busy November at Seiko since this beginning of the month is marked by the release of several novelties, each one placed in a very distinct universe. Mr. Watch thus proposes you to discover the 5 Sports Honda Super Cub, the Prospex Speedtimer Solar, and the Presage Sharp Edged "Kabuki". We start with the Honda Super Club, the most produced motorcycle in history, first introduced in 1958. The new Seiko 5 Sports Honda Super Cub, a limited edition of 6,000 units, is based on this legendary motorbike. There are a number of references on this watch,replica watches uk starting with the stainless steel case back engraved with the "Super Cub" emblem, to which the words "Limited Edition" and the serial number are added. The dial is not to be outdone and multiplies the winks, between the choice of colours, shapes and indexes. The same goes for the two-tone nylon strap that borrows the same green/beige duo, but replik uhren is also adorned with the "Super Cub" and "Honda" logos. Apart from the main green and beige version (reference SRPJ49), the Seiko 5 Sports Honda Super Cub will also be offered in black and grey with a steel and carbonised titanium case (reference RPJ75). This second limited edition will be released later, in February 2023, and will be limited to 5,000 pieces. Seiko also presents this month the latest generation of solar chronographs based on the first Speedtimer models, a timepiece launched in 1969. The brand keeps the same stylistic codes, but offers an even more advanced reliability and precision, thanks to solar technology. The programme includes three different versions inspired by the original design. The stainless steel case and bracelet are accompanied by a curved sapphire crystal and a tachometric bezel. On the dial, three counters at 3, 6 and 9 o'clock, Lumibrite coated hands,replica omega watches a long red chronograph hand, as well as a date window between 4 and 5 o'clock. Everything is done here to ensure that the time can be read accurately and quickly. These three timepieces are equipped with Seiko's V192 solar calibre (60-minute chronograph, 24-hour sub-dial) with a magnetic resistance of 4,800 A/m, and guarantee a power reserve of 6 months when fully charged. It is the colour that differentiates each piece of this trio, with black bezel/black and white dial for the reference SSC911, red and blue bezel/blue sunray dial for the reference SSC913, black and red bezel/black dial for the reference SSC915. We finish this presentation of the Seiko novelties in beauty with two watches added to the Presage line, known for creating models combining modern aesthetics and traditional Japanese craftsmanship. For this duo, the Kabuki theatre is used as a guideline. For those unfamiliar, replica rolex is a form of Japanese theatre dating back to the Edo period of the 17th century and still popular today. Designed in collaboration with Ebizo Ichikawa, a star actor of Kabuki theatre, they pay tribute to this art form in every detail. From the Japanese hemp pattern "Asanoha" found on the fabric of Kabuki costumes, to the warm red-brown hue ("Kakiiro") also seen on the costumes. All this is combined with golden Lumibrite indexes and hands. The leather strap and the steel case in carbonated titanium surprise by their black tint, where we would have rather seen brown, in the continuity of the dial. Yet, the mix works well, with a sharp and pleasant contrast.
