Ever wondered why Thailand gets special and limited-edition models of Seiko popular watches? What is so special with Thailand and why can’t other countries get the special handling and treatment?
It’s because according to Seiko senior executive vice president Minoru Ishiguro, Thailand is the biggest and most influential market in the Asian region (excluding and outside of Japan) and has potential to grow and expand its middle class in the next couple of years. Seiko wants to make Thailand as their base for South East Asian marketing push.
Another contributing factor why the Thailand market gets special and limited-edition models is that Seiko have both factories and design facilities in Thailand ensuring that have all the parts and creativeness into play.
It doesn't really help global collectors that most of the Thai limited-releases are numbered making it even harder to get for everyone else. Almost all of the Thailand only releases have either maintained their prices or have sky rocketed in the last couple of years.
So if any of the pieces below entice you, better get them now.
Note: The list is a work in progress and will be constantly updated whenever a new Thailand special releases comes out or if I missed a previously released model
