Seiko Snk603 #seiko5

Goodmorning!

I was looking aroung amazon and I found this seiko model I didn't know before.

It's the snk603, I think it has an interesting dial and good details, the bracelet I suppose would be rubbish but it's to be imagined at this price point. I think I'll get this as my first watch but I'd love to hear your opinion/suggestions! What do you think? Did you already know this model?

It also comes in white and black, honestly can't really decide on the color, I like blue but doesn't seem very versatile with my wardrobe..

It certainly has. My problem is that I just can't bring myself to buy a Seiko these days. They are always overpriced and under spec'd. For the same sort of money I can generally buy a really nice microbrand watch, which will indefinitely represent far better value for money

This isn't even a "these days" Seiko. This is discontinued old stock from several years ago, featuring the 7S26 movement. It's a workhorse movement, but it doesn't hack, and you can't hand wind it either. That can be inconvenient with a day and date watch.

Also, you better like the bracelet because it is integrated. There's no popping this on a NATO strap. And these things were almost half the price a few years back.

That said, they are nicely sized handsome watches with the crown out of the way and a nice selection of features if one is aware of what they are getting. I'd go white myself as I find dials that complement the case color without stark contrast to be more practical.
