Seiko Men's Analogue Automatic Watch with Stainless Steel Bracelet – SNKL45K1
About this deal
One of the first mechanical watches I ever bought for myself, the SNXS79, has an extremely luxurious and rich-looking sunburst anthracite dial. If you want a watch that’s a bit more rugged and tough, it’s hard to beat a field watch like the SRPG35. With a dizzying number of collections and models to choose from, the best Seiko watches feature outstanding movements, unrivaled affordability, and versatility in terms of where you can wear them.
While many of us might not need such an apparatus on our watch, one that our phones can likely do better for us non-divers, I like using it to time how much time is left for food in the oven, or how much time I have left in a parking meter.
This is one of the elements that can make a watch look cheap or much more expensive, depending on how well it’s actually executed, and in this case, it’s done to perfection. The SRPE53 takes some of the dive watch elements from the SKX, namely the large, rounded hour markers, and beefy hands, both filled with lume to glow in the dark.
Credit is subject to status and affordability, and is provided by Klarna or PayPal, depending on the finance option selected. If blue isn’t your thing, there are two other variations, a black and grey SSK001, and the bright orange SSK005.
The pips, however, look slightly bigger on the on the SNKL23 so they might glow better and longer but I don't really know if this is the case. Lume is traditionally best for casual watches, but a slightly dressier watch like the SNK793 benefits from having as little lume as possible for that traditional dress watch look. This watch has a water resistance of 30 metres, meaning it should only be exposed to light splashes of water.
If you like the grey dial, but prefer the polished bezel and metal bracelet, the SRPE51 has all of the above. The SRPE61 takes the “DressKX” style of using dive watch elements on the dial but classes it up with a fixed bezel, and a more elegant, slightly dressier appearance.The flat brushed surfaces are offset by curved polished areas, which allow the watch to catch light in a way that resembles a luxury watch much more than other watches of this caliber.
