Looks like Amazon has decided they need to reduce their stock of the Seiko 5 SNK809 Automatic watch – they’ve currently got it on sale for under $57.
- A 37 mm stainless steel case
- Hardlex mineral crystal
- 17 (?) mm canvas strap
- An automatic mechanical movement with day/date complication (7S26)
- Luminous markers / hands
37 mm may put this on the smaller side of modern tastes, but it should fit well under a shirt cuff, and look sharp on those who don’t have ginormous wrists. Amazon is marking this as 69% savings over the regular price of $185, but I had a hard time finding it anywhere near that high of a price online – though the next cheapest I could find it was around $100, so you do appear to be getting a discount.
Given the price, and the expected performance that goes with the Seiko name, this could be a good watch in many scenarios – as a backup watch, something you’re giving to a relative as an introduction to the world of mechanical watches, or perhaps just as a good ol’ impulse buy to add to your own collection. Whatever the reason, this should be a solid watch at a great price.
