Seiko 5 Sports

All 6 colourways of the Seiko 5 Sports ‘Street Fighter’ limited edition watches

Japanese watchmaker Seiko has teamed up with Capcom to release a new watch collection with Street Fighter colours.

Street Fighter V x Seiko 5 Sports

There are six watches in the new Seiko 5 Sports collection that takes inspiration from Street Fighter V, the latest edition of the world-famous player vs player fighting game.

Each of the six watches has colours inspired by the game’s central characters: Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, Guile, Zangief and Blanka.

RYU – Unshakable Fist

The watch’s design is inspired by his classic “do-gi” Judo uniform, and the scratch-like marks across the bezel reflect the tough training required of Ryu to become a “true fighter”. At the 9 o’clock position is a simplified version of the iconic “Furinkazan” kanji characteristics on his gloves, which signify “as swift as the wind, as gentle as forest, as fierce as fire and as unshakable as the mountain.” These four characters are also printed on the back of the strap while the controller command for his special move, “Hadoken” is discreetly printed on the case back.

KEN – Rush ‘n’ Blaze

Ken’s costume and blond hair are captured in the watch’s red and yellow color scheme, and his costume design is also reflected in the dial. At the reverse side of the strap end is the logo of his company, the Masters Foundation, showing another side to his identity. The command for one of the most known moves of the game, “Shoryuken” is printed on the case back.

CHUN-LI – Blue Jade

The combination of blue and gold brings to life Chun-Li’s China dress. The same design on her dress collar is at 12 o’clock, and her spike bracelet inspires the indexes at six and nine o’clock. The beautiful dragon pattern on her waist belt is printed on the strap back, and her special move “Spinning Bird Kick” command is printed on the case back.

GUILE – Indestructible Fortress

Guile’s uniform as Major of the US Air Force inspires the military camouflage-patterned dial and patch at the 6 o’clock position. At 9 o’clock is the “dog tag” of his best friend Charlie Nash that he keeps with him to cheer him up and stay sharp during fights. On the case back is printed the command for Guile’s special move, “Sonic boom”.

ZANGIEF – Iron Cyclone

The dial’s design reflects the power of Zangief’s muscular body. The circular pressed pattern is reminiscent of his special move “Cyclone Lariat”. The large, bold Arabic figures and indexes, as well as the calendar display with a magnifying lens adds impact to the watch. Its nylon strap is a perfect expression of Zangief’s wrist band. The case back carries the command of his move “Screw Pile Driver”.

BLANKA – Call Of The Wild

The bezel’s electric discharge pattern captures one of Blanka’s special moves, “Electric Thunder”. The dial’s pressed spinning design is based on Blanka’s iconic rolling attacks, and the indexes are in the image of his sharp and powerful teeth. An affectionate “Blanka Chan” doll’s image is printed on the back of the nylon strap end. The case back is printed the command for his special move, “Electric Thunder”.

Special Watch Straps

Besides the cool colourways, the watches also have unique straps with designs inspired by the characters.
