Seiko Frequency Watch (Out of the Archives 1)


I am somewhat of a packrat. I collect different things, including stuff found on the internet, much of which is no longer available. In this "Out of the Archives" series, I'll be posting some random old stuff that deserves (in my opinion) the light of day, since it's just getting dusty sitting on my hard drive.

Recently, there has been discussion regarding the following article about the "Top 10 Geek Watches": http://www.productdose.com/2006/03/07/top-10-geek-watches/

I'm all for celebrating geek culture, but I didn't particularly like any of the watches listed in that article, but that's not the point. I wanted to mention one particularly geeky watch that was not listed--the Seiko Frequency Watch, released in the late 90's. In short, it's a drum machine watch intended for DJs, people at raves or dance clubs, and musicians. See the related links at the end of this post if you want to learn more about it.

There are several websites that talk about this watch, including a few in Japanese. The sites in English neglect to mention that the watch was made in collaboration with Tetsuya "TK" Komuro, the J-pop megastar most famous in the 90's and one of the pioneers of electronic dance music in Japan. See my previous article for more information on TK.

Here are some official images I saved in 1999. That's TK in the first image. The last image appears to be the Globe version of the same watch. (Globe is one of TK's bands)

For the record, I usually wear an Omega Seamaster given to me by my wife, or a titanium Swiss Army watch given to me by my dad. The watch I would eventually love to own (if I could ever afford it) is a custom-made Triomphe made by Allen Elishewitz who is most famous for his beautiful knife designs.

  2. I think that's a cool watch. I didn't know that Seiko had made one like that but it's to be expected since they do some unique pieces. You can probably find other copies on collector's sites.

  48. Pain is a constant companion for humanity. There is nothing as useful and, at the same time, as dreaded as pain. It is an essential tool for our survival throughout our existence by teaching us to avoid poison, sharp objects, fire, and many other harmful things. It also performs the vital function of alerting the body about an injury. Though very useful, the feeling of pain is also very unpleasant, and based on the severity and how long it lasts, it can harm the quality of life of a person.
