Those of us who coveted the limited edition, super-expensive Seiko Spacewalk watch have a new hope. Check out the Seiko Prospex Landmaster Alpinist SBDB007. The Spacewalk was beautiful and desirable, but extremely expensive at $28,000 for the consumer version.
Now these watches are a bit more of what I think of when someone says to me “urushi painted dial.” As a follow-up to the Ananta Urushi Diver from last year, Seiko has released two new urushi watches for 2012. This time they remedied one of the principle issues of last year’s limited edition urushi watch. See those red stripes on the Ananta Limited Edition Kumadori Chronograph dial?
In the Watchnerd world, few watches signal your progress out of the department store and into the forums like buying something from the Seiko SKX range. Something of a dive watch “rite of passage,” the drug of choice is often the SKX779/SKX781 (orange and black, respectively) dubbed “The Monster.”

This year Seiko will have released four limited edition watches in honor of the famous Japanese manga series Golgo 13. “Duke Togo,” aka Golgo 13 is the main character of the manga series that has been running since the late 1960s.

There was not a lot of new Ananta action this year from super Seiko. I really like the Ananta collection (see the first Ananta automatics here and the first Ananta Spring Drive watches here) and would like to see Seiko continue to develop the range. One new model in the Automatic range was this limited edition [...]
Forget that it is 2012 and pretend like it is the early 1990′s. The time when electronic wrist gadgets were super cool, and the next neat Casio was sure to excite you. This watch coming out back then would have been a no brainer super star. Today however, it must compete with mechanical watches given [...]
Each year Seiko holds a contest called the Power Design Project. I don’t know all the details, but I believe it involves a contest among Seiko designers (and maybe other designers as well) in Japan to design cool new concept watches. Often times, many of the designs are very sober and classic – less wildly [...]

This is likely to be unlike any other Seiko Ananta watch you’ve ever seen before (or will ever see). For 2011 Seiko worked with a Japanese “conceptor” to create this limited edition watch called the Ananta NS_Concept (ref. SPB023J). The watch uses an existing Seiko in-house made movement but offers a new modern design that [...]
