The Seiko 5 Sports Automatic Brian May Limited Red Special II is already the second collaboration between the Japanese watchmaker and the lead guitarist of the rock band Queen. So it’s logical that the color scheme of this special 5 Sports edition is based on the design of Brian May’s famous guitar.

Seiko 5 Sports Brian May SRPH80K Quick Check

However, this is only one of many loving details that will make Queen fans happy. Already when opening the high-quality box, Brian May’s signature in the red lid catches the eye. In addition, you will find a gold-colored coin with the curly hair of the guitarist. 

The Seiko 5 Sports Automatic Brian May Limited Red Special II has a red dial and a black bezel. In addition, the gold case is eye-catching. Connoisseurs of the 5 Sports collection, on the other hand, will not expect any surprises on the technical side. The watch with the reference number SRPH80K1 resembles its sister models in material selection and dimensions.  As standard, Seiko installs a 4R36 manufacture caliber. The automatic movement is also known as NH35. Its accuracy is not exactly record-breaking, but that’s okay for a watch in the mid-three-digit price segment!

Seiko’s five key features

If you haven’t come across Seiko’s 5 Sports collection before and discovered the watch through Brian May or Queen, you probably haven’t heard of the namesake five key features. In addition to the automatic movement and durable case, these include a day-date display. Also a sunken crown at 4 o’clock and water resistance to a depth of 100 meters. So, the Seiko 5 Sports Automatic Brian May Limited Red Special II is not just for the display case or the watch case. It can be worn without hesitation during sports activities. At most, professional dives should be avoided.
