If you are a SEIKO collector then this is the best Christmas present ever – NARUTO & BORUTO
Naruto is one of the biggest-selling manga series in history, selling
250 million copies worldwide. The Japanese anime series followed the
adventures of a young ninja, Naruto Uzumaki, while a spin-off series,
Boruto, subsequently focused on Naruto’s son. The shows’ all-action
exploits have now inspired Seiko to create a new collection of seven
watches based on some of the central characters from the show.
And you want them all!
The only problem is that each Seiko dealer in Australia was allocated
just one full set and couple more ‘extra’ pieces. And I can tell you
straight away that blue Sasuke has already sold out.
Make no mistake: these are not ordinarily Seiko 5 watches but highly ‘customized’ pieces limited to 6500 worldwide.
Over next few days we will have a closer look at each watch.
It goes without saying that I am keeping my complete set on ‘display
only’ and will be selling a couple more individual pieces to ‘deserving
The first watch in series is NARUTO UZUMAKI – SRPF070K1
Seiko’s effort to simply load the watch with so many ‘Naruto’ details is
fascinating: gold-colur case, symbols on the case back and bezel;
strap, hands and dial;
down to a special box in a form of secret scroll. The radial dial itself
is mesmerizing (it reminds me of a fine dials on Moser & Cie
The case finish will surprise: the bead-blasted finish makes the watch
looks like it has been already worn! This intentionally ‘imperfect’ look
is so unorthodox with Japanese constant quest for perfection.
Naruto is also the only gold plated watch in series.
The custom made NATO strap is simply a perfect match, down to brush finish gold plated buckle and keepers.
It is obvious that Naruto and Boruto watches will be a great hit with
both young and seasoned watch collectors. There is something simply
unexplainable with the whole story, the watch itself, the box it comes
Naruto is neither the toy nor the watch, but both at the same time – a pure magic that would flare up your imagination.
The Captain Willard is
possibly the most famous Seiko amongst watch enthusiasts, and one of the
most sought after vintage Seiko's of all time, and for good reason
The movie ‘Apocalypse Now’ was iconic and many would regard it as a cultural classic. The focus of the movie revolves around the character Cap. Benjamin L. Willard making his way through the Cambodian jungle on a ‘need to know’ mission. He was sent into the jungle with not much more than his uniform, a dossier, and a Seiko 6105.
The Seiko 6105 was the perfect choice for ‘Captain Willard’ as it
established itself during the Vietnam war as the soldiers watch. It was
an extremely popular purchase from post exchanges on bases in South-East
Asia with many choosing the 6105 as their trusty timekeeper while
In terms of the watch design, the ‘Captain Willard’ Seiko is an
extremely unique watch. Its case in particular sets it apart from all
other divers in the market, a market that is already oversaturated with
basic, unchanged designs and submariner copies.
The SPB151J1 is a modern reedition to the 6105 carrying on the same
design style with all the modern Seiko advancements such as ‘Made in
Japan’ calibre 6R35, Lumibrite hands and hour markers, an anti
reflective curved sapphire crystal and a stainless steel case and
bracelet with Seiko's ‘super hard coating’.
As a subscriber to this newsletter, you know
we have no time to waste. At the end of the day, it all boils down to
one thing: is Captain Willard worth $1,995 or not?
Absolutely! For less than $2K this watch was made to last for decades.
It is a robust steel watch with a sapphire crystal that will not let you
down. I like how the winding crown is protected and I am most impressed
with the quality of crown thread - a smooth, secure lock.
I know that most of our subscribers are hard-core watch enthusiasts. Not
for a moment I suggest that this SEIKO is a replacement for a $10K
Swiss made watch. However if your daily wearer is an Omega planet Ocean
or Rolex GMT, you really should get yourself a Seiko. It will impress
you, and your 'good watch' will have a chance for some quiet time, off
Unlike with previous Seiko models, I am not throwing any leather straps
in the deal: Captain Willard should be worn on the bracelet: the most
iconic watches are simply best when left 'as they are'.

If you are into professional diving then you
are well aware of PADI. For the rest of us: PADI is the largest dive certification and training centre in the world
with over 6,300 Dive Centres and more than 136,000 qualified PADI
professional instructors around the world. PADI has issued an amazing 24
million certifications and has done more than any other organisation to
introduce diving to the world.
In comparison, Seiko is one of the largest
manufacturers of dive watches in the world and their philosophy and
direction for their dive watches has always been in the advancement of
innovative dive technology and in reliability and safety.
These innovations include the world's first titanium diver's watch in 1975, the first diver's watch with a ceramic outer case in 1986 and the first Nitrox Dive Computer watch
in 2000. Thanks to these advances and to the supreme quality of their
diver's watches, Seiko has earned a high reputation of trust in the
In 2016, to celebrate and recognise both of their shared passions for
ensuring the safety and enjoyment of divers, and for protection of the

If there ever was a SEIKO with an impeccable colour scheme, then this is it: Prospex SRPE31K.
What a design! Timelessly futuristic, it looks like a watch that has just arrived back from a galactic Imperial saga.
Finding the right present for a young clever
boy is almost impossible. You are really left with only two options:
another Lego Millennium Falcon or a BMW 221I M-Sport. This Seiko is
cheaper than them both, and will outlast a BMW by a decade (but probably
not the Lego set).
Trust me on this one: we have five fighters in stock and I can fix your Christmas problem for just $860.
Make no mistake: this is NOT a kids watch. It is a serious professional diver specification watch with hard steel coating fitted with an automatic movement and highly visible LumiBrite dial, hands, and bezel.
No doubt, for some, the question which lingers in the air is this: why
pay the full retail price of $860 for a SEIKO when this exact watch
could be found online for less? As stated before: if your only goal is
to find the cheapest deal possible then I am not your man.
I don’t want to engage in a price war, discounting or price matching,
because that would be a complete waste of time. Instead, I believe in
relationships and value for money. What you will get for your money is
an additional 2 years warranty (3+2 years in total), free shipping and
the chance to win another SEIKO in two weeks from now.
Online dealers come and go. We are here to stay and look after you in
the years to come. For that, we don’t charge more – only what is fair
and recommended. Fair enough!

Djokovic is a Serbian professional tennis player. He is currently
ranked world No.1 by the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP).
Djokovic has been No.1 for 298 weeks. Djokovic has won 17 Grand Slam
men's singles titles, and 81 ATP singles titles overall, including a
record eight Australian Open titles and a record 36 Masters events.
Djokovic is the first and only player to win all the annual elite-tier
tournaments of the men's professional circuit. He is also the only
player to complete the Career Golden Masters - that is, winning all nine
modern ATP Masters events, which he has done twice.
But more than a tennis player
extraordinaire, Novak is simply the nicest guy ever. During his public
career spanning over decades, there was not a single on the court or off
the court moment that would even slightly tarnish his reputation. A
true gentleman and a humanitarian.
Since 2014 Djokovic is a proud SEIKO ambassador. He is often seen
wearing a Seiko Astron, however, for watch enthusiasts, a true 'Novak
Djokovic' watch is the Seiko 62MAS remake, known as SPB143J1. Seiko 62MAS - The First Professional Divers Watch By Seiko.
From the day we've announced our Seiko
dealership, we've been inundated with requests to source. Yesterday, the
first example has finally arrived. One only! Such is the demand for
SPB143J1 that it is only available to selected dealers, in very limited
Before you jump on it (yes, we are taking orders!) you should do a bit
of research. There are a number of online articles on 62MAS and it's
The bottom line is this:
- as a watch collector, you must get yourself Novak Djokovic SPB143J1. Priced at only $1895, it is a bargain.
- this watch will remain popular forever. If you ever decide to sell it, there will be no shortage of buyers.
- and if you are a Serb or of Slavic descent, then you must get at least
two or three for yourself and your friends. There is no more 'national'
watch to a Serb than a Novak Djokovic Seiko.
- if you are a Croat, then keep in mind that Novak's grandfather, Zdenko
Zagar recently revealed that Djokovic also has Croatian blood. "I am
Croatian, I was born in Vinkovci, and Nole's grandmother too.
So there you go. If there ever was a sportsman who could be 'claimed' by
both parties, then that's Nole. If there ever was a watch that could be
worn by anyone - that is Seiko.
If you happen to be in the city please feel free to visit us and check the watch out. You will LOVE it.
