Seiko 5 Sports Automatic
What is the difference between a Seiko 5 and a normal Seiko?
The technology behind ‘5’ of Seiko 5 series is simply
- Automatic winding
- Day/date displayed
- Water resistance
- Recessed crown
- Durable case and bracelet
Whereas a normal Seiko, unlike a Seiko 5 is not restricted to the 5 elements as mentioned above, a normal Seiko watch could be a mechanical one, a battery operated one, or without a date/date display. The name Seiko 5 actually expresses the greatness of Seiko. A simple and classy name which offers beyond expectations.
Now let us take a look at the top 5 Seiko 5 Sports Automatic watches which are not only the top buyers’ choice but also worth every penny on it.
Don’t we all love how a watch can have substantial weight and without being too bulky? This solid Seiko 5 Sports Automatic SNZH55J1 is a perfect piece for working adults and casual events without looking too serious.
And did I not mention that this Seiko 5 Sports Automatic is also built for people who dive? It’s solid and thick bezel makes it able to go under 330ft (100m) underwater making it a popular diver’s watch as well.
My favourite thing about this watch is that it uses 23 Jewels automatic movement by Seiko (Calibre 7S36). If you are not a technical guy, just know that 23 Jewels allows the watch to have a longer lifetime, which auto translates to less charging by movement so that you won’t have to worry your watch will stop if you don’t wear it for a day or two.
What an interesting combination of colours in this Seiko 5 Sports Automatic SNZJ11J1, I love how the red is able to stand out so well in this dark grey face.
With a thick and solid bezel, the SNZJ11J1 also comes with a directional face which is able to tell you the direction, definitely a great watch for sports such as hiking. As usual, the day/date complication in this watch adds on to how much information it can provide you with.
My dad who loves swimming and hiking would definitely love this watch simply because of its design. A rather inexpensive watch for how expensive it looks, one could easily tell this watch is made for men. Give a shot on guessing its price tag here, I’m pretty sure you won’t come close.
The first thing that probably caught your attention is probably how beautifully simple this watch is designed. The simple black dial with a contrasting lime coloured seconds hand makes it enjoyable to look at it run round the dial.
Like a usual Seiko 5, the SNZB23J1 comes with a thick bezel that allows you to go underwater with it. However do not be deceived by its substantial look, the weight of the watch is, in fact, lighter than it seems. If you are looking for a heavier watch, then the Seiko 5 SNZH55J1 may suit you better. Having said that, all Seiko 5s are equally well-built and holds on to the 5 core values strongly.
The SNZB23J1 is perhaps more suitable for guys with age, it is not a popular choice among the younger generation perhaps due to its simple design. I would get this for my uncle who loves Seiko 5 Automatic watches in this case instead.
Enough of some serious business looking watches from the first few that we have introduced. Let us take a look at this awesome blue dial Seiko 5 sports automatic SNK807 which also comes with a sturdy blue canvas strap.
After working 8-6, all you want is just a relaxing evening with your partner, but what seem to turn her switch off this time you wonder? In fact, it is the little things and in this case, you are wearing a business watch out with her which made her upset. So obviously we should be strapping you on with this fun and casual looking outdoor watch with your date and keep her smiling don’t you think so?
If you think you are getting sick of blue the whole time, you could swap your straps easily, a leather one seems perfect too! With it only costing $55 the last time I purchased, I don’t think anyone should be thinking twice about checking this out of your cart.
With 2 sharp looking swords as your minute and hour hands, you can never go wrong with telling time. The Seiko’s 5 Sports Automatic SNZG13 with a defining black dial comes with a solid stainless steel bracelet which will fit on your wrist just fine.
Fun-factor I would give it an excellent rating for being able to integrate into a serious built watch like this is pretty astonishing. For people working a semi-formal working environment, this watch is a perfect choice as it does not stand out for either being too serious or fun at the same time.
In fact what’s intriguing about the SNZG13 is that it has a water-resistant rating of up to 300m underwater. So, enjoy diving with this watch. Definitely a beautiful and durable watch worth investing in.
