Hey everyone, did you catch this new Pogue-like Seiko 5?

This watch won the Custom Watch Beatmaker Contest that
Seiko had for their fans. With members of an Italian Seiko
forum coming up with the winning design. A new watch that
blends the new SKX-like Seiko 5s with the cool, and classic
Seiko Pogue.

With just a few of the details including a 42.5 mm stainless
steel case, 100m WR, Hardlex crystal, pepsi bezel, nice gold,
or champagne dial, 4R36 movement, and steel bracelet also.

A few pics for you..

Frank, I was thinking the same thing. 😀

A lume pip wouldn’t hurt, and would even give the
watch a more toolish vibe right?! 😉..I like the way
you think ! 😎

Hector, these are meant to take you back, and give
you a nice vintage vibe as a Frank said sir. (y) But
aren’t identical to the original actually. They just give
you a little of the Pogue’s personality within a modern
Seiko 5 watch. 🙂 😉

Who knows, maybe this new Seiko 5 will just be the
beginning, and we actually see a redo of the Pogue.

In any case, it’s really neat hearing what you both had
to say on this one !!!

Somebody needs to make a hilarious web app where you spin the wheel and the app generates crazy designs, but only pulled from a previous model.

Actually Seiko already did this and now we see the results.

They fired art staff, hired a bunch of CAD designers, showed them a catalog of old designs, and said “make as many permutations of stuff we’ve already done as you can come up with. You’re in control of our destiny now. We have given up and you’re our only hope. We don’t design anything new. We just exploit the past.”

And here I thought a Pogue watch would feature Shane MacGowan! ;)

Robo, holy cow, I love your passion with this, and even though I have
to admit I do like this watch, I understand what you mean here. (y)(y)
A lot of the designs do seem to be becoming very homogenous, and
there are so many variations of watches like this Sports model above.
It's tough to keep up. 😮

Plus, like you are saying, the ideas really aren't new. But I guess it's the
what's old is new again theme that Seiko, and a lot of companies seem
to be focusing on lately sir.

And Gary, I see what you did there. 😁😄..Good one !🥇

I had heard he was only going to be on the super duper special edition. 😊

Have to thank you guys for both your honesty RT, and the laugh Gary !!!

Out of all of the new Seiko 5's that were created this year. This one is by far the worst looking one I've seen. Who'd of believed that it would win a contest. :ROFLMAO:

😄 I guess it was the Pogueness of it that put it
over the top in the voting Forza. As well as maybe
just the nostalgia of the original watch, which helped
to give it the win.

Want to thank you for not only looking, but also
for giving us your thoughts sir !!!
