We first caught a sneak peak of this watch last week, now the official pictures have been revealed alongside a release date and news that the watch will be available online through the Honeyee online store.
Only 150 of the collaboration between Jun Takahashi’s Undercover and Seiko will be released, selling at ¥47,250(approximately US$550). The watch features detailing directly from Undercover’s Fall/Winter 2009 collection(which you can see featured in Issue 3 of The New Order), and is the latest in a line of Seiko Wired H watches made in collaboration with Japans premium street fashion brands, Visvim, Soph, Stussy and Fragment Design, who have all designed watches as part of the innovative H series with Seiko. The H stemming from Seiko Wired’s philosophy of “High quality”, “high technology”, and “high style”.
This watch and its ongoing collaborations show’s Japanese street fashion’s ability to mix innovation and heritage better than anyone else. Constant references back to iconic movements in street culture are blended with new technologies and function, Seiko’s Wired series brings solar wave reception to a watch for the first time, and within the H range it’s enabled the technology to blend with high style.
