JDM's. Who said the Japanese aren't whacky?
I remember 30 or so years ago Honda describing the dashboard of the Prelude coupe as "inspired by looking at the city skyline through whisky glass". Without saying how many they'd had....

Nice find :)

Raises a smile but wouldn't get the fingers itching to reach for the wallet.

Might they be able to teach Hublot a thing or two?

Top one is not completely off the scale though.

Different (awful) aren't they. You missed out the pick of the bunch though Gary.

Meet the SBSA034 ...

I love the cabochon on the 034. It’s a Cartier / seiko hybrid. Nice work :D

I thought they might be smaller versions made with a more feminine target market. But no they are the 42mm standard case size :shock:

Great finds Gary and Ryan. I wish I had been wearing sunglasses when looking at these :D :D

I like the 037 a lot. But then I am looking at the Alain Silberstein range again.

The first watch looks like a Triton 100 homage:

But the Triton is missing the cabochon... Shukor has clearly improved the breed. Haven’t they? :P

At first I thought “No”...

But looking at it again, it probably is the pick of the bunch isn’t it? :|

There are just so many aspects of the watch where I just ask myself “Why?”, but no answer is forthcoming... other than the obvious “because they can”. Sadly, Seiko is not the only respected watch company to produce such designs, merely the latest...
