A Guide to Seiko Nicknames

Recommended Posts

A fun article - thanks for posting it.

I was slightly disappointed to see that the BFK didn't warrant a mention, being possibly one of the toughest Seikos ever made!

Interesting post, but an absolute "half-a-job" if ever there was one.

Ripley gets a mention, but not Bishop? Or the Burke? Or the Pulsemeter "Marine"? All from the same movie.

I'll find pictures from my PostImages account in a bit, but how about;
Seiko Boss
Seiko BFK
Seiko Knight
Seiko Bullet
Seiko Landshark/Atlas
Seiko Arnie

I could carry on all morning.    :yes:

Great thread this. Guessed the spork and previously read about the Pouge (cos I want one :)). Didn't have a clue about the other. Thank you.

Seiko Boss. Enormous left-handed 200m kinetic diver, no idea on the origins of the name.
Available in black (SKA293), Orange (SKA291) and rare white (SKA289).

Seiko Bullet.  Simply named because of the bullet shaped batons.
 Available in black or orange I think, mine was SKXA55, the orange one.

Another bit I saw relating to the 'Sumo'...this was named after the 12 o' clock marker which resembles the nappy-like garment that Sumo wrestlers wear, and the blue version is uninspiringly called a 'Blumo'.

The 'Sea Urchin' apparently gets its name from the fact that when the markers on the rehaut and 20minute section of the bezel line up, they resemble the spines of said marine creature. The Sumo and Sea Urchin share the same hour / minute handset. (The second hands are different)

BFK = 'Big Freakin' Kinetic' (allegedly).

The 'Caesar' apparently gets its nickname from the fact that when viewed from the side, the bezel shape resembles a Roman leaders coronet.

 Seiko 'Caesar'.

Anyone know why this Seiko is dubbed a "Seiko Lord"?

It's just the name of the range that one - the Seiko Lord is an old 70's (?) range which they resurrected the name for, much like the Presage.
