When the opportunity presented itself to review one of the most well known watch brands around the globe, I had to immediately jump at the opportunity. When...

Seiko Astron GPS

Seiko Astron GPS The Seiko Astron GPS was released this year. It was by far one of the most anticipated watches since news of its impending entry into the market was leaked earlier this year. The Seiko Astron GPS pay homage to the original Astron which was the name of the first quartz watch in the world, when it was released back in 1969. This single watch was the start of the great quartz revolut...

Seiko-SNZF45-

One of the first decent watches I ever bought was a Seiko SKX007 diver. Its a lovely watch that can be had for very cheap but still carries the iconic Seiko diver styling, an excellent bezel, and great lume. The SKX series is arguably one of the most popular “gateway watches” that bring enthusiasts from cheap fashion brands into the exciting but often debilitating hobby of watch collecting. Specif...

Seiko-5-Sports-SNZF45

As much as we love luxury watches with bespoke movements and astronomical price tags we also have a definitive soft spot for entry level timepieces that are both thrifty and fun to wear. This is the Seiko SNZF45 and it is generally called the “baby monster” as it was styled after the extremely popular Seiko SKX781 and 779 divers that have been carrying the “Monster” nicknam...

Seiko-

Just announced at Basel is an interesting advance from Seiko: a bitmapped grey-scale E-ink display with 80,000 pixels and 300 dots per inch, comparable to a good laser printer. Claimed to be a real product and not just a concept, it has amazing promise for programmable, legible displays. Photo-accurate moonphase?...

Seiko-SBCM023

The Seiko SBCM023 is a deceptive watch. At first glance, if you look at the bezel, case, bracelet and dial, it appears to hail from their line of SKX mechanical divers. The guarded crown at four o'clock position, the SKX hands, and thick lume all conspire to deceive. A closer...

Seiko-Ananta
