The second watch featured in the Pokémon
Seiko collaboration series is SCXP181 or better known as 'The Mewtwo’.
The watch features a subtle patterned purple dial with a large picture
of the character Mewtwo. Mewtwo is one of the most powerful if not the
most powerful Pokémon characters, created by the arch nemesis of main
character Ash, Team Rocket.
Many fans regard Mewtwo as the ‘first Pokémon character’ as it was the
first Pokémon seen on screen in the intro of the English dubbed version
of the original Pokémon series released in the late 90’s, you can check
it out here:
The watches caseback features an engraving of a Master Ball, a rare Poke
Ball that is more powerful than a regular Poke ball and increases the
chances of catching Mewtwo. The box also has the same colour scheme and
design as a Master Ball as opposed to the classic red and white Poke
ball design seen on the other watch boxes in this series. It also comes
with a matching purple NATO strap as well as the black and purple
backing leather NATO that comes fitted on the watch.
We don’t see purple dial watches very often but we definitely haven’t
seen one as iconic and cool as this one before. Again, this is a
Japanese only release and the watch has not be offered for sale anywhere
else in the world however we do have one in stock.
