It’s no secret that we’re big fans of Rowing Blazers over here. For all intents and purposes, we think the brand represents everything we love about collaborations. As an OG of the collective, Rowing Blazers’ Jack Carlson knows a thing or two about successful partnerships. Last year, Rowing Blazers and Seiko launched their first collaboration which saw some 1,500 timepieces sell out in record time. This year, for their sophomore drop, Carlson tapped vintage watch expert Eric Wind to help spearhead a colourful variety of the 5 Sports watch.
The results prove that Carlson and Seiko can do no wrong. At the time of writing, the selection is already 75% sold out. If you’re one of the lucky 888 buyers allocated for each piece, you’re likely grinning because you’re sitting on a decent investment piece. So please, for our sake, enjoy it for what it is.
Now let’s talk about what’s on deck.
Coming in four colourways, the Limited Edition pieces feature vintage-inspired dials, steel bracelets, monogrammed crowns, “candy cane” second hands and casebacks adorned with the brand’s Derry Bones “Tempus Fugit” motif.
Likewise, potential buyers will have an additional nylon strap that comes in a special-edition co-branded presentation box.
To shop the available inventory, and to sign up for future restocks, you can visit Rowing Blazers’ website here. It would also be wise to keep an eye on the brand for new collabs in the near future. Rumour has it they have a lot rolling out for us well into 2023.
