It’s all good in the neighborhood—at least for watch aficionados, at any rate. Japanese streetwear brand Neighborhood teamed up with Seiko on a limited edition watch that will appeal to anyone looking to complete their streetwear collection. Limited to just 1,000 examples, the Prospex reference SBDY077 was made available through Neighborhood’s online shop and at select Japanese retailers on January 15.
Neighborhood started the design for the Prospex with a black steel case that measures 44mm in diameter. Fans of the watch have referred to the case as a “tuna can,” earning the watch the nickname of “Tuna.” The lugs were kept small for added comfort. The dial is also done in black and features yellow lume on the indices and hands. At 4:30, there is a date window. At the six o’clock position, just below the depth rating, you’ll find the NEIGHBORHOOD label in red. The blue/grey bezel is adorned with a red accent at the pip.
The watch comes on a silicone strap with an engraved keeper. On the back of the watch you’ll find the individual number and “NEIGHBORHOOD TOKYO.” Seiko contributed their 4R35 caliber automatic movement with manual winding capacity. Considered a dive watch, the Prospex has 200 meters of water resistance and a 41-hour power reserve.
The Neighborhood x Seiko watch comes in a blacked out box that is co-branded in silver and is priced for about USD$665 (depending on exchange rates). The classy style of the watch, and the limited quantity, made this a fast-selling, popular option for people looking to complete their streetwear wardrobe and for anyone that enjoys having a good-looking watch on their wrist. It is indeed all good in the neighborhood—unless you’re looking to add this watch to your collection.
