May end up being my favorite watch,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Seiko 5 Black Dial Stainless Steel Automatic Mens Watch SNZF17 (Watch)
I have about a dozen watches. I am a quasi-collector. "Quasi" because I cannot afford true "collectible" watches like Grand Seiko, Rolex, Omega, Breitling, etc.
I have 'nicer' and more expensive watches than the Seiko 5 however, its low price and high 'price/quality' ratio are what I love most. Unlike a more expensive watch, if this gets scratched or damaged, I won't be too upset about it. Whereas, a scratch on a $1000 watch will ruin a person's day.
I have several Seiko watches, and they are my favorite. Yes, the average person on the street does not think much of Seiko watches, but I don't care about them. People who 'know' watches, know what a great value they are and how well made they are.
So far, it keeps great time, it has very good 'wrist presence', and it looks and feels more expensive than it is. No complaints.
