The Best Men's Seiko Watches for Under...

Seiko is probably my favorite Japanese brand of watch out there.  It is really a close thing between Seiko and Orient.  But Seiko has such options and styles, it is really hard to over look them as a company.  Today I am going to focus completely on Seiko, and we will be doing the best men's Seiko watches under.  We will be covering a lot of price points on this one.

So lets go ahead and get right into it!

The Best Men's Seiko Watches for Under...

Functions: HH, MM, SS, Date, Day
Battery: N/A

This watch made it on the 5 best men's watches for under 100 dollars.  It is a serious contender in the under 100 dollar price range.  You are getting a lot of watch for under 100 dollars.

The stainless steel case is modestly sized at 37mm.  Seiko located the crown at the 4 o'clock position, to keep it from digging into your wrist.  The black face is offset with white Arabic numbers, in both hour digits and minute digits, at the 5's.  The hands are polished steel and the canvas band has a buckle style clasp.  The watch also has a day and date window at the 3 o'clock position.

They watch is powered by a Seiko 7S26A automatic movement.  The movement has 21 jewels, and runs at 21,600 bph.  It also has a 40 hour power reserve.

For under 100 dollars, I love this watch.  I don't think there are many out there that can beat it for that price.  I do not think you will have any complaints.  I have found the watch for around 75 dollars.  Some sites will sell it for a couple dollars less, some for a couple dollars more.

The Recraft series are a
nice retro style series
Model: SNKN47
Case: 44 mm, Stainless steel
Band: 22 mm, Stainless steel
Movement: Automatic movement 7S26
Functions: HH, MM, SS, Date, Day
Battery: N/A
Water resistance: 50 M/ 165 ft

I love the Recraft series of watches, the retro feel they have is great.  They really hit the mark with some of the watches in this series.  This watch, in particular, reminds me of my first Seiko I ever owned.  I had gotten it for my 16th birthday and I wore it religiously for more than 15 years, before I lost it on a business trip.  It was a sad day for me, and it makes me sentimental to this watch.

Sentimentality aside, you are getting a large, 44mm stainless steel watch with a 4 link, stainless steel band, with tri-fold clasp, you get an automatic movement, which runs at 21,600 vph, and hour, minute, second, day and date functions.  The watch packs a lot of punch for under 200 dollars, and also, this one made my 5 best men's watches for under 200 dollars.

The Seiko Premier collection include some very nice watches.  In fact, this particular Premier missed making my 5 best men's watches for under 500 dollars, mostly because Seiko, as a company had already made it on two of my lists.  Otherwise, it would have been on there.

This watch has very nice, clean lines, with a 42mm stainless steel case.  It has a crown at the 3 o'clock position.  The dial has Roman numerals marking the hours, and it also has a 24 hour, sub dial located at the 10 o'clock position.  The dial face is also a partial skeleton, and the hands are blued steel.  The watch also sports a leather band, with a buckle style clasp.

The movement is a automatic 4R39, running at 21,600 vph, and with a 41 hour power reserve.  The watch also comes with a sapphire crystal, giving you a nice, scratch resistant lens.

This watch looks to be a good buy in the under 500 category, especially for all you Seiko fans out there.

The Seiko Premier will be able to offer you lots of features for the money.  The 42mm, stainless steel case features a quartz movement, that charges itself like an automatic, through movement.

The face includes the hour, minute, and second hands, along with a 24 hour dial, a day/date dial and power indicator and a moon phase,  The face itself is black with roman numerals, indicating the hour markers.

On top of that the watch also includes a sapphire lens, and a 100M water resistance, and this is all had for around 750 dollars, if you search a little.  I found it for that price on Amazon, but there may be other places.

It is a really nice watch, with lots of neat features for a really good price.  It is a watch we should all look at as a possible watch for our collection.

The Astron is a great option for travelers
with its easy time zone change features

Movement: 8X53, Quartz

The Astron series brings a nice feature to watches.  They are GPS time controlled, meaning, with a single button push you can accurately change your time when you change time zones.  It is also solar powered, and when fully charged can run for 6 months.

The large stainless steel case is rose gold plated, and includes a crown at 3, and two additional buttons at the 2 and 4 o'clock positions.  The black face contrasts well with the gold hands.  Hands included are the hour, minute, and second.  You get a day dial, and a power reserve dial, along with a date window.  The Leather band includes a tri-fold clasp, and of course there is the GPS time control.

This is an awful lot of watch.  The solar power is always a nice feature.  and the rose gold case gives the watch a very high end look.  I really like this watch, and it can be had for under 2000 dollars.  In fact, I have found it for around 1850 dollars.
