Honda X Seiko: a watch inspired by the world’s most popular motorcycle

She’s small, she has no bones – and now she has a (different) watch inspired by her legacy.

Honda recently teamed up with Seiko 5 Sports to bring out one – okay, two – new motorcycle-inspired chronographs for our good industry+, all in the name of the world’s most popular motorcycle (via Monimoto).

The Seiko 5 Sports Honda Super Cub Limited Edition Chronograph is available in two model schedules: SRPJ49 (‘Tasmania Metallic Green’) – inspired by the JDM-exclusive Super Cub first seen in 2018 – and SRPJ75 (the black one) – after the very popular Super Cub C125.

According to Hagerty, both will come as part of a limited-piece fleet, with the green SRPJ49 part of 6,000 units, while the SRPJ75 will offer 5,000 units to riders and Super Cub fans about our good world.

The accompanying NATO strap is also convenient to wear over gear – all to complement Seiko’s reputation for top-quality automatic movement, day-date display, water resistance, recessed crown and durable case/bracelet via its dive-style SKX platform.
