There are few brands having more fun right now than Rowing Blazers. The NYC-based subversive-prep brand has gained a cult following for reimagining classic items with playful and colorful designs. Rowing Blazers has also become known for its many collaborations with brands like Sperry, Fila, the NBA, John’s of Bleecker Street, and now Seiko.
Designed by Rowing Blazers founder Jack Carlson in partnership with respected watch guru Eric Wind, the new Rowing Blazers x Seiko capsule includes three unique Seiko 5 Sports watches. The two limited editions sport a checkered bezel and a Rowing Blazers zig-zag bezel and are limited to 500 pieces. There's also a special edition, my personal favorite, which features a multicolored bezel. All three watches have a Rowing Blazers double stamp at six o’clock, a racing stripe second hand, and comes with both a nato-style strap and a Rowing Blazers x Seiko dad hat.
