Seiko 5 Sports 2022 x "KOSUKE KAWAMURA" Limited
The Hiroshima-born creative started off as a graphic designer and began exhibiting his artworks by the early 2000s across Japan and the globe which led to collaborations with the likes of adidas, G- shock, Uniqlo, Gundam, Evangelion, AKIRA and more as his recognizable collage- based style started attracting a larger audience. He first started off with digital collages utilizing Photoshop and Illustrator but moved towards the traditional method of shredding magazines which he would casually find anywhere and specifically avoids the inclusion of famous photos, acclaimed sources or media that provides little to no artistic value. His initial works are heavily inspired by the anarchic American artist Winston Smith.
Collage artist Kosuke Kawamura extracts characteristic designs and elements from Seiko models from the 1960s and 1970s and reconstructed them into this specially designed limited edition model.
The dial and hands extract elements and colors from the popular 1970s Seiko "Time Sonar" model, which used translucent plastic material.
The bezel display, indexes, scale design, and layout also extract elements from the popular Seiko 5 Sports vintage models.
By incorporating various elements into a single watch, a novel and artistic design is achieved.
The watch is offered as a limited edition with a KOSUKE KAWAMURA signature on the case back alongside the words "LIMITED EDITION" and the serial number.
