New Seiko 5 Brian May LE SRPE83K1

Recommended Posts

I'll be honest and say that I don't really like that wave-edged bit of black on the rather nice red dial, and surely, 9000 pieces is pretty big for a special limited edition. Now, if Brian May had actually signed the reverse of a personalised Seiko 5...:)

Looks as if he is going a bit thin on top :whistle: Did he ever wear a Seiko?

Yes, there is loads of concert footage of him wearing Seiko divers watches, and also during various interviews and documentaries. He bought his first on tour in Japan apparently.

9000, is a bit high to be fair. The red wave is a bit marmite. But it will sell out and be on the bay regardless.

I actually think it's good looking.. but the price?? I suppose it is limited numbers but would rather buy a Presage for that money.

Article says that Brian May has been wearing a Seiko since the 70s. Let's see that please

I like it, but could do without the S on the dial

I believe the 'S' is the latest incarnation of the '5' logo for Seiko 5.

My memory of Queen is way older, from back in the 70’s, my sister went to see them and had asked me to pick her up so being a bit early I managed to blag my way in and I caught the last 15 or 20 minutes of the concert.

They were terrible, possibly one of the worst live bands I’ve heard, Maybe they were just having an off night.

No they weren't. Never liked any of that stuff, but my mates went to see them in Dundee when Bohemiam Rhapsody was on the go, and the high notes were unobtainable. Some say this guy is better, but I'm not going to risk finding out.

I understood it was a bad 5 on its side.

This lot got a shock when some old guy wanted to sing with a cover band at their wedding in Bishopton.
