Enter The Dragon With The Seiko 5 Sports Bruce Lee Limited Edition SRPK39

Seiko 5 Sports is pleased to introduce a collaboration honouring Bruce Lee,
who wore 5 Sports during his lifetime.
This anniversary model pays tribute to a man whose legacy endures through his many achievements as a martial artist, actor, and cultural icon.

Certain watches become icons because of the people that wear them, and the case of Bruce Lee was no different. There is still debate going on today as to which exact variant of the 6139-powered Seiko chronograph the star actually wore. To honour Bruce Lee and the choice of Seiko as his wristwear, Seiko is introducing a brand new addition to their 5 Sports line-up, with numerous touches that pay tribute to Lee’s life and work – the Seiko 5 Sports Bruce Lee SRPK39.

Bruce Lee

Born in San Francisco, Bruce Lee was a film actor, martial artist, director, and teacher whose career spanned continents.
He became a superstar with the smash hit The Big Boss (1971)
but tragically passed away at the young age of 32 when he was filming Enter the Dragon (1973).
Lee’s other films include Marlowe (1969), The Way of the Dragon (1972), and more.
A multifaceted creator and martial arts expert, Lee founded Jeet Kune Do, which translates to “Way of the Intercepting Fist.”
His work continues to attract fans from all over the world.

The dragon, which Lee drew in his lifetime,
is shown on the dial.
And the bezel represents the spirit of Jeet Kune Do with a phrase that translates to “Using no way as way; having no limitation as limitation".

This Limited Edition Bruce Lee Watch comes with two straps. The black leather strap evokes the type of clothing worn in kung fu, with the dragon design on the inside.
A nylon strap in the colour of the yellow tracksuit worn by Bruce Lee will also be included.

Case Back

The glass case back features the Jeet Kune Do
core symbol, which is based on the yin-yang symbol. The case back is also marked with "Limited Edition" and the serial number.

Special Box

To commemorate the collaboration, the watch is enclosed in a specially designed box with Lee’s signature.

The SRPK39 is limited to 15000 pieces worldwide. Some would say not really a limited edition, but I still feel demand will outstrip supply, based on the volume of enquiry since Seiko announced the release.
