From the master craftsmen at Seiko, the Seiko Men's SNXJ92 Seiko 5 Automatic Gold Dial Two-Tone Stainless Steel Watch is a cutting-edge timepiece with a masculine appeal. Featuring a gold analog dial and a two-tone stainless steel band, this watch is packed with style and would be a great addition to your watch collection.
This is an automatic mechanical watch. Automatic watches do not operate on batteries; instead, they are powered automatically by the movement of the wearer’s arm. If the main spring in your automatic watch is not wound sufficiently, timekeeping may become less accurate. In order to maintain accuracy, wear the watch for 8 hours or more per day, or manually wind the main spring by turning the crown. When not in use, automatic watches may be kept charged with an automatic watch winder – a watch storage unit which may be purchased separately.

Remember that this is an Automatic Seiko, and the watch is powered by a self-winding mechanism. You CANNOT wind this watch manually by pulling out and twisting the crown. You can only manually wind it by moving the watch in a spinning motion. If the watch sits idly for about 24 hours, it will stop and you have to spin it to re-wind the mechanism. The movement pulsates at 6 ticks per second, so the second hand moves 6 times every second. So far, the Seiko 5 movement seems to be keeping time very well, and I leave it on a watch winder to keep it wound. You can see the automatic movement through the glass case-back of the watch, and as it has an automatic movement, this timepiece is slightly thicker than dress quartz Seikos.
The "gold-tone" color of this watch looks very close to the real thing, and the champagne-gold color dial complements the rest of the gold color on the watch.
The day-date feature of this watch also works very well, and it changes every day between 12:00 midnight and 12:20.Read more ›
The back of watch has a see through case cover which allows you to see the movement in action. The movement is stamped "MALAYSIA", "TWENTY-ONE JEWELS", SEIKO TIME CORP 7S26C". Nazi war criminal and SS officer Josef Mengele wore a Seiko Automatic 21 Jewels watch in South America held by the archives of the federal police in Brazil and it is still working to this day. (seen in National Geographic Mengele Twin Mystery)
With the exception of titanium watches, my higher priced watches all seem to have a bit of heft. This watch is very light. You can not loop this onto your fist to use as a set of brass knuckles.
The face, crown, bezel, and bracelet features a yellow color metal meant to simulate the appearance of gold. You do not get real gold at this price point. The hands and hour markers are constructed with betalights for self powered illumination. The watch band is a folded link bracelet without pins.
What you get here is a timepiece meant to compete at a lower price point in the market. This is not a Seiko worn by James Bond and made in Japan. This is, however, one of the better watches that you can acquire on a budget range of less than $100. In addition, your watch will come with a case number and serial number that you can register with Seiko, and you do get the benefit of a Seiko warranty.
Want a better watch? Spend more money. At this price, do not expect a family heirloom. But don't be surprised at just how good of a watch $50 will buy.
Other things I'd like to add:
- The movement on all Seiko 5's are bulletproof and are built for the everyday guy to wear a mechanical watch and not worry about breaking it.
- The movement isn't the most accurate and the specs are kind of weak, but I've owned 5 Seiko 5's and they ranged from -10/+20 secs a day which is pretty decent for most people and good at this price range.
- There is no hacking feature (meaning when you pull the crown, the second hand doesn't stop) and its harder to synchronize, but it isn't too annoying.
- The bracelet isn't the most comfortable but it is serviceable and very durable. I'm a tough critic of watch bracelets and I'd give this one a C+ overall - B for durability and C for comfort.
- The gold plating has held up fairly well. In the last several months, there has been no fading, scratching, peeling, etc which is rare for gold plated watches in this range.
Overall, I'd recommend this watch with no reservation. Its rare you can get a well built mechanical watch that looks good and has a half decent bracelet.
TECH NOTE: Although the "date" will change at 12am, it takes up to 4.5 hours (midnight to 4:30am), for the "day" to fully change to the next day, and in english. The day first appears in spanish (for 90 minutes or so), then changes to english for the rest of the day, until midnight. I called Seiko USA customer service and the factory - they said that is exactly how the movement functions. It even says in the instruction booklet not to try to adjust the day/date from 9:00pm to 4:00am, without following a special sequence.

I have been wearing this watch for 9 or 10 years. I do yard work, auto repair work and even swim in the local pool or the ocean. I have never had a problem with it. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Joseph Ashley
This watch is self winding. It slows down if you do not have it on your wrist all the time. I would rather have a watch which operates on a battery.Published 9 months ago by Syed B. Husain

This watch gains at least 20-seconds every day. The last Seiko Kinetic watch that I owned (fell off in the ocean; their watch bands are weak) kept great time. This one is horrible. Read morePublished 20 months ago by Amazon Customer
