When it comes to honoring motorsport history, Nissan knows how to do it in style. At the 2023 SEMA show, the JDM legend took the wraps off the new Nissan Z Safari Rally Tribute car, paying homage to the iconic 1971 Datsun Fairlady Z’s victory at the 19th East-Africa Safari Rally. As if that weren’t exciting enough news for car enthusiasts, Nissan Motorsports has teamed up with Seiko, one of the original sponsors of that legendary rally racecar, to launch an exclusive timepiece: the limited-edition NISMO Safari Z watch.
Limited to just 240 pieces, this watch is a must-have for die-hard Nissan fans and watch collectors alike. Inspired by the exhilarating world of rally racing, it showcases an embossed blue dial decorated with metallic elements and Nissan’s iconic #23, a clever play on words in Japanese. The watch also features Nissan Z and Safari branding, making it a tasteful nod to racing and timekeeping heritage. Completing the look is a color-matched NATO-style strap with racing stripes in black, blue, and red.
When it comes to specs, the Seiko x Nissan’s newest creation doesn’t disappoint. It comes with a 60-minute track marked in five-minute increments, LumiBrite hands and markers for easy visibility, and a date calendar for practicality. The case measures a versatile 40mm in size and is crafted from polished stainless steel with a black ion-finish bezel. Water-resistant up to 100 meters, the watch is powered by Caliber 6N52 quartz movement. And at a price point of $299, it offers an attractive blend of style, functionality, and heritage. The all-new NISMO Seiko Safari Watch is currently for sale on the NISMOSafariWatch website. View all Nissan models currently for sale on duPont REGISTRY by clicking the link below.
