This recent Seiko 5 Sports collection is based on the mythical SKX007 model, famous among watch lovers. Seiko 's Sports 5 collection appeared in the middle of the last century, surprising with the first automatic watch in history to incorporate a calendar that indicated the exact day.
Within this collection we can find different styles or series: Sports, Suit, Specialist, Street. This series of new sports watches from the Seiko brand bring new designs and a wide range of materials and colors.
In this collection of Seiko 5 watches we can also find limited editions, such as the Seiko 5 Sports Limited Edition by Brian May, an exclusive piece dedicated to the famous guitarist of the prestigious band Queen. Other limited editions of this collection of Seiko Sports watches are those inspired by the characters from Naruto, or also those of the characters from the legendary video game Street Fighter.
In some of these models, Seiko maintains the characteristics of the legendary watch, such as its mineral glass, case diameter of 42.5mm, unidirectional bezel, day and date at 3 o'clock, and 100-meter water resistance. It has also included a series of features in this new Seiko 5 collection that improve it and adapt it to the new times. Some are:
Automatic caliber 4R36 with 21,600 alternations
41 hour power reserve
"Automatic" legend at the bottom of the dial
Box with reinforced steel
We are going to know one by one the different series of this new Seiko 5 Sports collection:
Seiko 5 Sports
In this series we can find watches with a steel or fabric strap. The difference between one and the other is fundamentally aesthetic. Thus, Seiko offers us options for all tastes, with original proposals that combine different colors between the dial, bezel and strap.
Seiko 5 Sport Suits
Without a doubt, it is the most elegant series of all. We think the work Seiko has done with the dials in this series is sensational. If we add it to the idea of combining them with Milanese mesh steel straps, the combination is exceptional. Very important to keep in mind, since if you are looking for a sports watch with an extra touch of elegance, a Seiko Suits watch is a fantastic choice.
Seiko 5 Sports Specialist
In this series we can find 3 very similar models. They only differ in the composition of their box. One in steel, another in reinforced steel and finally another with pink PVD coating.
Seiko 5 Sports Street
We are not wrong if we say that this series is going to succeed among the youngest. Seiko has created a series that we love by combining dark colors with other somewhat garish ones in a spectacular way. All of them with a nato strap, and usually in a medium size, usually less than 40 millimeters. An SSeiko Street watch is a very good option to wear on a daily basis.
