You can say the stylish and uniquely designed Seiko 5 Automatic watches are entry level timepieces for both, the manufacturer as well as the customer. Simple elegance is what comes to mind when you look at a Seiko 5 automatic. There's nothing flashy about this watch – it is basic, simple and does the job it is meant to do. For those venturing into the watch world of automatics, the Seiko 5 automatic is the perfect choice.
While the Seiko 5 watch range may not be top of the line in terms of accuracy, it has certainly set the standards for reliability, durability and performance. To some, it has an eye-catching flair when it comes to style and look while others might take it for a very mundane timepiece with its nylon strap.
But the Seiko 5 Automatic is a significant watch not only because it is inexpensive for the solid performance it delivers, but also because millions of pieces have been sold over the years without cause for complaint.
The stylish Seiko 5 like its name offers five features, namely, automatic winding, day and date display in a single window, water resistance, recessed crown and durable construction. The Seiko 5 automatic is built out of stainless steel making it extremely tough and durable. The black dial encased in the stainless steel case with marks and hands in white luminescent material make for a sharp contrast. The nylon strap looks a little cheap, but then you can always change it to a leather one or a metal bracelet.
Built to last, the stylish and uniquely designed Seiko 5 Automatic Watch range uses the very reliable 7S26 automatic movement which came into the market in 1996. With 21 jewels and a 40-hour power reserve feature, this is a rugged timepiece. Perhaps the only drawback is that you may have to set the time every now and then. Remember, this is not electronic quartz but a self-winding mechanical automatic watch.
Uniquely designed Seiko 5 watches are perfect daily wear timepieces, but they fit equally well for all occasions, especially if you opt for a leather strap or metal bracelet. This is a smallish watch so if you have large wrists, it may look slightly out of place.
Finally, when it comes to comparing prices of similar watches, the stylish Seiko 5 Automatic watches come out way ahead of the competition. It comes packed with the essential features you would look for in a watch, add to that long years of durability and battery-free timekeeping, and you have a winner in terms of economy and pricing. It is also a safe, no frills design that works well for any occasion.
