For the design of the Seiko 5 Sports Automatic Brian May Limited Red Special II, Seiko has collaborated with Brian May, the lead guitarist of the rock band Queen for the second time. So it seems only logical that the look of the special model from the 5 Sports Edition is based on Brian May’s famous guitar.
Seiko 5 Sports Brian May SRPH80K Quick Check
A watch for fans? The dark red color is just one of the loving details that will make the fan’s heart happy. How to get fans on your side, Seiko shows already with the presentation. When you open the high-quality box for the first time, you’ll see Brian May’s signature embedded in the red lid. Nice gimmick: a gold-colored coin, embossed with the guitarist’s profile. The curly hair is immediately recognizable!
But now to the watch itself. The dial of the Seiko 5 Sports Automatic Brian May Limited Red Special II is dark red and framed by a black bezel. Beyond that, the gold case stands out. On the technical side, however, fans of the 5 Sports collection will not expect any surprises. The sporty watch with the reference number SRPH80K1 has the same materials and dimensions as its sister models. Seiko installs a 4R36 manufacture caliber as standard. Most of you might know it by the name NH35. Its accuracy is not exactly record-breaking, but that’s just fine for an automatic watch in the mid-three-digit price range!
Seiko’s five key features
Possibly, one or the other has not yet met Seiko’s 5 Sports collection and has discovered the watch for himself because he worships Queen or Brian May. The special feature of this series are the so-called five key features. In addition to the already mentioned automatic movement and the durable case, these include a sunken crown at 4 o’clock, a day-date window and water resistance up to 10 bar. Thus, the Seiko 5 Sports Automatic Brian May Limited Red Special II is not only suitable for the display case or the watch winder. Pretty much all sporting activities are possible with this timepiece. A small catch and point of criticism of many Seiko fans: you should do without professional dives. The watch is not suitable for that.
For sports, the striped nylon strap with gold-colored loop is a comfortable way to wear this timepiece. Color-wise, it matches the watch well.
Seiko 5 Sports Brian May SRPH80K Quick Check – not only for Queen fans an exciting watch
Whether you’re a Queen fan and/or a newbie, the Seiko 5 Sports Automatic Brian May Limited Red Special II is a safe choice. Design elements of the guitar reveal that Seiko’s tribute to Brian May was conceived by people who are fans of the band themselves. A lot of attention to detail was put into this one. If you had posters of Brian May, Freddie Mercury or Queen hanging in your room in your youth, you’ll love this watch!
For newcomers to the watch world, the Brian May Limited Red Special II offers some features at a moderate price of just over 600 Euros. And for collectors? They’ll get an attractive addition to their existing collection. I wouldn’t wait too long, though. The model is limited to 12500 pieces!
