Default I have to have me one of these...

What I love most about Seiko is that they have produced so many great models and I keep discovering new watches aside from my usual Diver obsession.

This is a Seiko Timetron SNNB005 and it is cool as!

I have never seen one of these and would love to know more about them.

Are they pretty rare models?

W853- Several different models were made in the 90's up to 2001. They seem to be collectibles with themes. An ivory one (Disney)and a black one (Sega) are on e-bay asking about $500.

Cheers. Ive seen a few of the other pastel like colours. They just ooze 90's design. Will be keeping my eye out for one... or two... maybe a collection.
Did these endorse any movies or had product placement in film? Thats kind of how they look. Some Industrial design commissioned for some sci-fi or something.
Anyway, they are super cool!

They are pretty cool. Love the old school design. I came across this picture of one I really like.

Google "Seiko Nooka" and you'll find more info.

The TimeTron is funky, too.
