    READ THIS BEFORE BUYING ANY AUTOMATIC WATCH! There are three reasons NOT to buy any automatic mechanical watch such as this Seiko 5, a $15,000 Rolex or any automatic in between. Reason one is you need a watch to keep perfect time and you find inaccuracy stressful. Reason two is you want a watch that you can lay down and expect it to have the correct time when you pick it up three days later. Reason three is you don't move around much as these require motion to wind them. If any of these three things are true then you should buy ANY quartz watch instead because you'll never be happy with any automatic at any price. Automatics are a different animal and are 1940's old school technology.

    Seiko 5's have been made since 1963. 51 years of Seiko 5's and counting so far. This SNKL45 is the current Seiko 5 I liked the looks of best for under $100. It looks even better in person. Mine gained about 7 seconds the first day, then after a week was only about 2 seconds fast. This is not my first Seiko 5, but it does keep the best time right out of the box of any Seiko 5 I've had. I've used entry level Seiko 5's as a daily "beater" watch to wear to work on and off for 30 years.

    Seiko 5's are not the best automatic watches in the world and nobody in Switzerland is losing sleep over Seiko 5's. However if nothing else Seiko 5's are very durable and since the technology isn't exactly groundbreaking they are super affordable. Translation, Seiko 5's are a decent watch that last a very long time even under rough use, yet relative to anything else that is as durable they are really cheap. In short a bargain if you get one that keeps time out of the box to within 1 minute or so per week.

    There are some downsides I know about with a Seiko 5.

    I like watches and I am always looking at a brand's respective website, amazon, ebay, etc. I like old watches, new watches and in many styles and types. I am not a snob that refuses to wear quartz movements but I do prefer automatics. I recently got an Amazon gift certificate and decided to give one of these Seiko 5's a try. I picked this particular model out of the hoards of offerings from Seiko's cheaper automatic lineup simply based on looks. I had no expectations regarding this purchase as it was basically free.

    When I opened up the box from Amazon, I was amazed at how gorgeous this watch is! The pictures on Amazon and quite frankly, all the pictures of this model that I've seen online absolutely do not do it justice. I've never had a watch that used a folded bracelet so I was quite worried about it looking and feeling cheap. Well, to me, It's pretty darn good! To be honest, I got this watch to specifically put on a black leather band but after seeing in person, I've decided to leave the folded Seiko bracelet on. The buckle is polished on the inside which is a nice touch. Most cheaper offerings do not have that. It was easy to remove the links which was surprising.

    The 7S26 automatic movement is quite smooth and is fairly accurate. I will not comment about it's accuracy as it is brand new. It does seem to be running a bit fast at the moment. So far, so good. Since I've been wearing this watch everyday to break it in, I have not had the opportunity to observe the duration of it's power reserve. I figure that it will be no less than 30 hours of reserve time but I wouldn't be surprised if it holds on to about 40.

    One of the main reasons that I love this thing so much is that I got a great little watch for so very little.

    I sent it back. It lost 7-15 minutes a week. I had it for about 3 weeks and originally thought I set it off time or did not wind it (auto) enough. So I reset the time and made effort each day to move my wrist in a "winding" motion, and noticed that each day lost a minute or two. No biggy but over a week, it lost about 7-12 min, and I guess if you want to always adjust it, then its not a problem. For me it is. A month that is going on one hour and thats not acceptable. My quartz (battery) watch is about 1 minute a year, and another auto watch I have is off about 1 min a month. So, obviously, there were issues.

    This is an excellent timepiece. It may lose a minute or two every week, however I have only had it for a week and it will probably take some time for it to break in. The quality of the watch for the price is amazing. I had a gift card and basically got this watch for $30. You will never find a better watch for that price with this quality. I highly recommend for anybody looking for a good, EDC watch that holds good time for an automatic, and looks extremely nice.

    I've had it for several weeks now and I think it's been accurate to about 1-2 minutes during that thime which is acceptable to me. I've been very pleased with it so far as it looks great in an understated way and does what I want it to do: tell me the time, day and date. We just bought my son a Casio G-Shock which is a very nice instrument and will serve him well in the military but I don't need the size or all the functions. I also have a Citizen but realized over the last few years I've spent about as much on battery replacement as the Seiko 5 cost and I don't have to worry about that. I just have to keep moving. I like the style and the finish and the price was excellent. The band just barely fits my wrist on the largest setting but I'm a big person and the fit is actually quite good. If you're looking for a simply elegant automatic watch at a great price I think you should really consider a Seiko.
