About Seiko Watches
Brief Company History
Seiko was founded in 1881 and has become a global watchmaking leader in the decades since. With nearly 7,000 employees, Seiko is one of the larger watch brands and carries a reputation for quality timepieces at reasonable prices.
We speak quite highly of Seiko, and of the Seiko 5 series of watches in particular. Their penchant for unique designs and creating timepieces that are durable and easy to use is what sets Seiko apart from other manufacturers.

Mechanical, or automatic, watches are a curiosity. The more tech leads watch making into a future of connected apps and gadgets, the more designers still clamor to create traditional timepieces. Why? Aesthetically they’re beautifully rendered. Functionally, they tick...read more
The Seiko SNK807 is just as good as the SNK809 (pretty good), only blue! Check out Auke’s take on the blue Seiko 5!read more

I’m currently sitting in my hotel room at the Linq Hotel in Las Vegas, and the SNKM97 is the perfect companion. It looks totally at home on the strip, and its green and gold color scheme practically screams “high roller”. While this budget timepiece may not really be a high roller, it looks the part and feels great on the wrist. Check it out!read more
As of today WYCA has over 70 reviews on it, with all but two being penned by myself. With more experience in the world of watches, and with considerably more experience with watch photography, I decided to rebuy the SNK809 and reassess my review.read more
The SNKN01 is a great looking watch that is powered by the legendary 7S26 automatic movement. For someone looking for an affordable automatic, the SNKN01 – and the Recraft series of watches – offer a lot of value. I’ve seen this watch for as low as $110 on Amazon, and at that price it’s an obvious choice. It doesn’t get much better than that.read more
The Alpinist came as a true shock: a great looking, well-spec’d automatic from a world-class manufacturer. It’s comfortable to wear, durable, reliable, and accurate. In the USA and Canada, it’s also an uncommon watch to find. The best part of all of this is its price, coming in well under $400. Great work, Seiko.read more
This is a watch that combines some of the best elements of an automatic movement with the timekeeping accuracy and reliability of a quartz movement. Once charged, the SKA553’s kinetic movement keeps a six month power reserve. If this watch will be a daily wearer, I recommend it wholeheartedly; if this watch will be part of a larger collection, perhaps consider whether or not you want a kinetic movement at all…read more
It’s hard not to appreciate what Seiko offers in the 5 series. The SNK809 is a good looking, basic automatic watch that offers little frills… and has a diminutive price point to match. Whenever anyone starts getting into watches, the most popular recommendation for a first automatic is – by far – a Seiko 5. Buy a couple of complimentary straps and you can wear it just about anywhere, anytime. This is such a great watch.read more
Seiko is known for producing watches with a lot of value built in, and in that way the SSB039 is true to form. It’s a fairly attractive watch as the vibrancy of the blue face is quite eye catching. It’s let down by the bracelet, which feels flimsy and cheap. Despite that, I wear it often because it pairs well with a variety of styles and is inexpensive enough that it’s not upsetting when it shows the signs of wear.read more
