Seiko is known for being a leader in the watchmaker world. Here, you’ll learn about five of the best Seiko watches for men. They’re ranked in both popularity and function.
$185 / £135
The SGG711S has an elegant and traditional design. It’s a watch that will suit anyone who needs a reliable timepiece that won’t look out of place at any occasion. It offers affordability and functionality. All the quality of Seiko.
There is a titanium version ($215 / £185). In the watch world, this is a giveaway. The best watches are titanium and they offer durability that is second to none.
It’s lighter than steel but more sturdy. It’s also resistant to corrosion. The dial is protected by an equally scratch-resistant crystal. Inside, it’s powered by quartz movement.
The face is black with white numbers. It has a date window at the 3 position. It has both second and minute markers, which means it’s got great readability. The hands are also luminous, which is great for periods of low-light.
The most common review of this watch is how easily it fits in with most outfits, on most occasions.
For a reasonably low price, you get an exceptionally-built timepiece that will offer reliability and class. You can’t really go wrong!
Around $320 / £280
Arguably a cooler-looking watch than already mentioned. The SSC293 has a little more of a masculine vibe and comes with a lot of features.
This watch is solar-powered so you never have to think about charging it.
One awesome thing about it just how many features it has. It offers a chronograph function, a highly-readable date window, a compass and an alar.
The face is black and the hands are white and luminous. The face is scratch-resistant thanks to mineral crystal. The case itself is 42mm. The wristband is a soft genuine leather.
You could take this watch snorkelling, too, as it has a 100m water-resistance.
Inside, it’s powered by Japanese quartz movement.
This watch simply looks cool. Not only that, but it gives its wearer an abundance of features that could rival any basic smartwatch.
For the price, you get a lot of decent quality materials so you’ll find this watch will last you a good 5 years.
Sub $100 / £100
This is a really classy offering. It carries a traditional design. The sub-dials bring something special to the look as well as the function. It would blend into a formal occasion just as perfectly as it would an office.
It has a black leather strap made of calfskin. It’s really very comfortable on the wrist.
The face offers contrast as well as huge Arabic numerals. It’s easy to see what time it is. The hands are luminous, as are the hour markers, located every 3hours.
The case is made of stainless steel and is 40mm by 10mm. Inside, it’s powered by quartz movement.
It has a chronograph function that’s easy to use, too and is water-resistant to 100m.
Overall, it might be too chunky for the smaller wrist, but saying that, the weight isn’t much.
This is a very reliable timepiece. It has some handy functions and, at the price, it offers more value than it should.
Sub $100 / £90
Another excellent value option here. This one brings some colour. Silver and dark blue give this Seiko a striking look. It offers all the same elegance as its siblings, but makes a bigger statement. It screams expensive (but isn’t).
Another bargain titanium option. This is really light on the wrist. The deep blue face is nearly black. The polished hour markers stand out and it’s easy to read the time on the hands.
It has 3 hands movements and a date window situated on the 3 position. It has excellent readability and reliability.
The case is 37mm by 8mm, so it’s fairly dainty for a men’s watch.
It offered mineral glass protection and up to 50m water-resistance.
If you have a larger wrist, you might not like how lightweight this model feels. If you like colour contrast, though, this one’s for you.
It’s well-priced. You get something that is accurate and attractive.
Around $200 / £180
The classiest has been saved for last here. A gorgeous black and gold watch offers nothing but luxury. It has some awesome features to boot, but the main aspect is that this is a perfect dress watch. It’s masculine and bold enough to make a decadent statement.
It belongs to the Kinetic line. This means it gets its power from the natural movement of the wearer’s wrist. There is a visible rotor on the back of the watch. It’s not automatic, either, it does have a full quartz movement.
At the 2 position you will notice a power reserve indicator. Press it and it will display how much power is left in a gold semi-circular inner-dial at the 12 position. If fully charged and left alone, this watch would give you 3-6 months operation.
The hands are luminous as are the hour markers. So you can read it in most lighting conditions.
The case itself is just shy of 40mm and it’s 11mm thick. There’s a three-link stainless steel band. It’s got mineral crystal on top, and this offers a level of scratch-resistance.
Inside, it’s powered by Japanese quarts movements.
The look is what most people go for when they’re buying this watch. The features are an added bonus. It’s a well-built timepiece that offers accuracy as much as it does beauty.
