I think watches, specifically mechanical watches, are fascinating. You could get a nice looking seiko like this for 70 bucks

Edit: search "seiko 5" on Amazon for a lot of different similarly priced options

u/bayleo · 4 pointsr/Watches

None of those are going to win a bunch of support around here. If I had to choose between those three... Skagen quality can be sketchy, Tissot is a well-respected brand but $200 for a simple quartz dress watch is getting high, and the Bulova is just another quartz fashion watch... I'm stumped but I think I might opt for the Tissot.

Have you checked out the Orient website? They have 30-50% coupon codes you can use. Also consider something like this solar/quartz or this mechanical + a leather band as alternate options.

I got everything on Amazon:

- Watch from Seiko

- Perlon band from Clockwork Synergy

- Leather band from Hadley Roma

- Buckle from Hadley Roma

No worries, we're all learning. An under $100 mechanical mostly points to one of the Seiko 5 models. There are so many it's hard to list them all. The SNK80X are the most popular, but not exactly minimalist. Something like the SNK789 might be more along your line, but you can pick any of the Seiko 5's and it will be fine.

Tiny bit above budget, the Citizen NH8350 also comes in black and a much sought after blue sunburst. Nice mechanicals for a great price.

If you want a true Bauhaus minimalist watch under $100 though your best bet is quartz (you could even build a nice small quartz collection for under $100):

-Timex Fairfield

-Bulova 96B104

-Citizen BI5000-01A

u/smallerthan · 3 pointsr/malefashionadvice

These watches are all slightly more than $50. Seiko is a reputable brand. The watches should be fairly durable, though not as reliable as something more expensive. All three are automatics and the first two have exhibition case backs so you can see the inner workings.




u/parallaxarcsecond · 3 pointsr/Watches

I'm just getting into watches again and this is my first automatic. I've been enjoying reading this subreddit and watching a lot of Youtube watch channels and picked up that the Seiko 5 line is a great entry level watch. Most people recommend the 809, but I didn't want to go for that one as I've already got my eye on a few other higher-end Flieger-type watches, so I wanted to find something different in the Seiko 5 line and this one caught my eye: I've had it a week and it's been great. It's surprisingly high quality and looks even better in person than it does in pictures. I just put it on a NATO yesterday and that's been a nice change, too, although the bracelet it comes with is not bad, IMO.

u/count_downvote_ · 3 pointsr/Watches

I would pick up a swatch for the everyday/match most things piece to balance out what you have. Or save some coin and pick up a Seiko 5 — have fun with that gift card!

u/borutrpin · 3 pointsr/Watches

Perhaps the dressier Seiko 5s? Example.

u/lasttycoon · 3 pointsr/Watches

Have you looked at Orient watches? They are a Japanese brand who designs and manufacturers their watches entirely in house. They make watches with an unmatched value at the lower price ranges. Seiko is another Japanese brand that dominates your price point. For you I would consider the Orient Defender, Orient Bambino, Orient Ray II, Seiko 5 (any style you like) and Seiko SKX.

Here are a few links.

I don't think it's terribly big but it's far too thick for your hand IMO. I'd look for thinner options if you want an automatic watch with lume (the stuff that makes the dial glow).

Unfortunately, you can't really get an automatic for that low unless you look at used options. BUT, I'd give the Seiko 5 lineup a glance.

Here's a watch that perfectly fits all of your specifications, That is: Under $100, Automatic, has Lume on the hands, and it should fit your wrist size.

  • Seiko SNK789

    Here's another:

  • Seiko SNKL07

    And another:

  • Seiko SNKK47

    I'd return it and keep looking around. The watch gave you a good idea of what wrist sizes you should be looking at. All of the watches above are between 36mm and 39mm respectively.

    Look through the Seiko 5 lineup. Alternatively, look around the used market or try to hunt for deals when they come up. Massdrop always has watches for sale so it's worth a shot there. There's also /r/Watchexchange to buy watches from other redditors. You can't do much with $100 but if you try something good will usually come along.
u/goatboy1970 · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

It's way too dressy for regular wear, and as someone already pointed out, it's a Movado clone, which is going to look cheap and make you look cheap. For an every day wear, look for something with a white face, a limited number of complications (like day and date), a silver or stainless steel case, and a stainless steel bracelet or black leather strap. Something like this.

u/wilson007 · 2 pointsr/Watches

I'd recommend taking a look at the Seiko 5 range. At their price range, you can pick one up and still have cash for a handful of straps. Here's one for example, but there's plenty to choose from.

Seiko Men's SNK789

If you like to two-tone designs, maybe one like this:

Seiko SNKM58

u/jankay2 · 2 pointsr/Watches

I guess they're back up now. These in white, black, or blue dial were selling for $64 from Nov last year to Feb. The prices always change cause its Amazon, but they will go down again eventually. Also the SNK80* series also frequently sells for $64, although none at the moment. You're about a week late for that one.

u/soyboy1337 · 2 pointsr/Watches

Seiko 5 SNK789. link
very reasonably priced

u/NecessaryPrimary · 2 pointsr/Watches

This Citizen or Seiko. If you'd prefer an automatic (with a less of a minimalist look), then you could get this Seiko 5 and replace the bracelet with a leather strap

u/Gomestradamus · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I love the SNK789, I wear it every day. I have about 6 different straps for it, I usually wear a NATO strap like this or this, unless I am dressing up a little more formal with a shirt and tie and nice leather shoes. In that case, I will use either a brown leather strap or a black one to match my shoes and belt.

u/trafquake · 2 pointsr/FrugalMaleFashionCDN

I'd always recommend buying a solid automatic watch. Watches like MK, DW, fossil, etc, are cheaply made with Chinese parts and usually run on quartz and are meant to be replaced when they start to break down. Investing in an automatic can really ensure you have a great watch that will last.

Like mentioned, the skx007 is a great watch and will last you a lifetime. You can also mod this watch quite easily as well and the movement will last forever. Many watch enthusiasts love Seiko, myself included (have 3 will probably get more). Seiko 5's are also solid entry-level watches and many come in around the $100 mark depending on model:

The Orient Bambino is also a great entry-level automatic dress watch with a few different dial combos:

For a cheaper diver, the Orient Ray/Mako lines are good as well:

If you can spend more you can look at Hamilton's Khaki line or Jazzmaster, Seiko Sumo or Seiko Sarb033, Sinn Watches, Chris Ward, Squale, Junker's Bauhaus or Max bill if you like the Daniel Wellington Style.

You can even look at used/vintage and get a nice Omega Seamaster for ~$500

u/thundahstruck · 1 pointr/Watches

TL;DR: I'm looking for a recommended replacement for my Seiko SNK789. Preferred budget is $70; max budget is $120.

I need to replace my Seiko SNK789, which I bought after getting advice on this sub. I bought it on Amazon for about $68, and it came with a 2-year warranty serviced by Asurion. In early April, the watch started losing a few minutes a day, so I made a claim against the warranty. Asurion has taken forever—they claim that parts are on backorder—and they've offered to give me the purchase price, but they won't give me enough to buy the same watch, which is now $99.

So I'm wondering where to go from here. I could pay the extra $30 and get the same watch, but that seems like a lost opportunity to try something new. I'm not prepared to fork over $149 for the Orient Bambino. But I like the look of the Orient Symphony.

What does r/Watches think?

u/rapescenario · 1 pointr/Watches

Something like this actually goes with basically anything at anytime, but especially work. However case size might be a bit small? Is he a big man? Does he like a larger watch?

u/Kotanaru · 1 pointr/Watches

If you're only looking at field watch seiko 5s you're not looking hard enough

SNK789, for example

White is a wee bit formal though, and also maybe hard to go with other outfits.

How about black?

Hey, maybe you're feeling silly?

And it's not only the watch that determines the style of the set. Maybe you should think about perlons or bracelets for casual, or leather?

u/ukp42 · 1 pointr/Watches

I bought a smart watch U8 its called( to celebrate losing 2 stone). Then last month, I decided to buy a proper watch for my birthday.

I missed out on a second hand, Seiko 5, on Ebay. Showed my friend, & he bought me a brand new one from Amazon. SNK789
Loved it, but since I missed out on ebay, they kept showing other Seiko 5's from India. So I bought another, just to wear daily, to keep the new one for special occasions, like the weekend.
Found this community, & I have been looking at other watches on Amazon & ebay. Damn! I keep buying watches now. I just bought a Casio Diver's watch

I got an old display cabinet from a charity shop, I volunteer at, to display all my old film cameras. But now, it has more watches than cameras.
I need to un-sub from here.

u/Thor2DThor · 1 pointr/Watches

If you don't mind automatics you can check out the Seiko 5 SNKs like this or this. They're both 37mm.

Or there's a similar looking solar Seiko that's the same size.

u/ladypine · 1 pointr/Watches

After scouring the buying guides (thank you for those!), I've decided that I want to purchase a Seiko watch for my SO, but I'm stuck between these three options. I want to get whichever of these options is the best value. The first one is a solar watch, but one of the reviews as well as the lack of description made me wary that it might not be legitimate. The second is a Seiko 5 watch, but the Amazon description has different measurements than I've found for the same watch elsewhere, which again makes me wary. Do you guys have any advice for me on which of these three watches to purchase?

u/Esoterrorism · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

Seiko 5

Crown and Buckle Silas strap

Spring Bar Tool

Total ~ $121 (I didn't factor in shipping though)

You get can a 5 which isn't this:

For example:

And then it won't look like the 5 that everyone else has.

u/Daedalus_Wings · 1 pointr/Watches

Thanks for your help.

I've taken the plunge but have gone for a SNK289 instead:

Went for this strap by Hirsch

I've got a black face Skagen with black leather strap coming for Christmas which I intend to use for work (black leather shoes/black leather belt.)

Went for the SNK289 as it has a white face and the brown leather strap will go well with my smart casual wear which tends to be brown leather shoes, brown leather belt.

Nice to have some variety.

u/mivipa · 1 pointr/Watches

I don't know if you're set on a leather strap, but if you're not, this is an option.

Otherwise, there's not a whole lot of Seikos with leather bands in that price range. Are you set on that particular brand?

u/Viteous · 1 pointr/Watches

seiko snk789 is a good choice then.

u/jon49er · 1 pointr/Watches

Would these two items yield me the exact same watch? And i mean exact

u/that-freakin-guy · 1 pointr/frugalmalefashion

I have big wrists. The Seiko 5 automatic is a 37mm. I bought the metal bracelet and replaced the strap with leather. It was a great decision.

Edit: here is the link

u/zzzvine · 1 pointr/Watchexchange

There is one from the same family, but not this exact model for $67.

Seiko Men's SNK789 Seiko 5 Automatic Stainless Steel Watch with White Dial

I’ll make a price revision down to $55.

u/watyousay · 1 pointr/Watches

It sounds like you're looking for what's broadly called a 'dress' watch. Slim, simple dial, white face, black or dark brown leather strap.

With a $100 budget I recommend a Seiko 5, possibly the SNK789, SNKK87 or SNKL41 with a new 22mm band.

Should be able to squeak in under $100 and will have something that looks like these.

u/Pliskin01 · 1 pointr/Watches

I understand completely! It's a big world of watches these days. I always recommend picking up a seiko 5. Here's one that's 36mm. I'd also recommend checking out the watches on /r/watchexchange. There are good deals and good people to be found over there. Best of luck!


edit: and of course check out the buying guide here on /r/watches.

u/cab1024 · 1 pointr/Watches

Seiko makes tons of Seiko 5 automatics with metal bands. Here's pretty much that for $75. Search Amazon for "Seiko 5".

u/Seeker80 · 1 pointr/Watches

Agreed. Nothing against the Mako, but a cheap Seiko 5 with a simple dial and a leather strap would be worlds better for a 'dress' setup. Inexpensive too, especially if one doesn't have to dress up that often. It could easily be worn in other settings too.

u/ArghZombies · 1 pointr/Watches

Looks a bit pricey for it. Sportsmatic range of Seiko5 is from the 1960s so no telling the actual condition of it. Probably worth closer to £30 than £50 I'd say.

You can get Seiko 5s new for £40+. Just look at this one from Amazon. I'd say the Sportsmatic one is more for enthusiasts looking for that one in particular (they're from the very earliest range of Seiko 5s), but if you're just after a daily beater sort of thing then you might as well buy new.

u/Mediasurvivor · 0 pointsr/Watches

Seiko makes a version of the Seiko 5 that looks very similar and is an automatic, so you don't have to worry about battery life.

u/OneLegAtATime · 0 pointsr/Watches

Not as sleek, but this can be returned a bit easier.
