I’m a watch a guy… And quite often, I’m asked by my non-watch-guy pals for advice on what watch to get for their everyday watch. I recommend Seiko to just about everyone. They are affordable (in the watch world) and frankly, they are also the best watches in the world. Pick the one you like (just don’t get a quartz please) and you are most likely good for many years to come.
Anyway, I think my favorite affordable Seiko automatic right now is the SNKM97. It’s gotta cool retro look to it, a cushion case, and an absolutely fantastic movement.
