Seiko’s Mechanical Watch is the Perfect Blank Canvas

Post by JAS1125 » Thu May 23, 2019 5:04 am

The Seiko 5 line, a collection of inexpensive, durable, self-winding watches, has been in production since 1963, and offers some of the best value in mechanical timepieces. With a plethora of models to choose from in numerous sub-lines (Seiko 5 Sports, Seiko Sportsmatic, etc.), the 5 remains a perennial favorite of not only Seiko fans, but fans of affordable, enduring designs in general.

Though a seemingly revolving door of models makes it difficult to keep track of the entire Seiko 5 current catalog (not to mention the fact that Seiko doesn’t exactly publicize the line in the US market), a quick Google search often yields plenty of results, and many can be found for less than $100 (and certainly less than $200) on Amazon and elsewhere. Cheap enough to collect and plentiful enough to easily find, the 5 is a watch that you may as well have multiples of.
