The New SRPC03J1

It's sold out everywhere, I even checked with a buddy in Japan. They sold out within 2 days of being released it seems. Thought I'd finally found my perfect dress watch.

Anyone know the recipes for the Hisashi Kishi cocktails that inspired these dials? Starlight and Sakura Fubuki?

The watch comes with this recipe card, in Japanese:

These are the pages on the lineup from Seiko:

And press info on the Starlight and Sakura release:

I don't often have occasion to wear a dress watch, but if I did I'd have a Seiko. You made an awesome choice on this one!

I have a thing for blue watches and this may be my choice...

Cool profile of how they do enamel and the craftsman involved.

Thanks too! I like all of Seiko's enameled (and lacquered for that matter) dial watches. The Anniversary chronographs from a few years ago are especially cool.
Just pre ordered the JDM version.
Love that subtle decorated dial

Would look stunning IRL.
It'd not sold out, I just preordered mine from rakuten.

Do you have a link to the product there? It doesn't appear with a search.
The Blue face "Starlight" SRPC01 released on Nov. 17, and did indeed sell out quite quickly. Seiko's press release indicates that the White face "Sakura" SRPC03 won't be released until January 12, 2018 though, but who knows about any international availability truthfully. Might still have a crack at one....

Hope you find one man..... you could always check with Arizona Fine Time to see if they’ll have an allocation. You’ll be looking at MSRP with them if they can get them though..... cheers

Now if Seiko would just put sapphire over that beautiful face. Appreciate the help.
That face is killer.
