Super Lovers 60's Classics - Blue Rectangle

Today marks the 20th post about one of my favourite lines of Japanese fashion watches.

This watch is another by the Super Lovers brand from Tokyo, Japan. They aren't originally a watch producer, but are a fashion brand specialising in club, cute, and punk influenced clothing and accessories. They have been around since 1988, and during this time have sold a large variety of different watches under the Super Lovers, Lovers House, or Lovers Rock labels. From what I've seen so far, the watches use many different manufacturers for the cases and modules, so I would think that each one has been commissioned directly rather than being collaboration pieces.

This model comes from a specific line of watches under the Super Lovers name called 60's Classics. The watch isn't from the 60's, but is a quartz analogue aitch with a 60s feel to the design.

The watch has a rectangular case design in silver metal which is quite deep and is angled down to the strap connections. The glass is also thick with a rectangular cut and sloped edges giving a shape like a gold bar.

The face is a shiny blue metallic design, with the Super Lovers logo (a heart in a superman shaped surround) embossed at the centre. Above the logo is the Super Lovers name, while below it says 60's Classics Quartz.

There are no other markings to tell when this watch is from, so I'll guess it is a 90s or early 2000s model (but in reality, I have no idea...).
