    savaS backwards is still savaS.

  • This is a good deal for too. Seiko 5 Automatic SNZH55K for AU $137.41 delivered from Area Trend. Next cheapest I can find is AU $169.27. Excellent base for modding such as the FFF mod.

    • Nice find, added to the deal post, thanks.

    • movement states Quartz (Battery)

      • That's a typo, the Seiko 5s are all autos

        • ok good to know ..thanks…..just checking…. Still contemplating the value of auto over battery with the need for an expensive service down the track with autos…. nice watch none the less though I might go for https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Brand-New-Seiko-Divers-200M-SKX0... with PRAWNS discount for a few dollars more

        • @pointnlarf:
          Can't go wrong with an SKX007!

          As wasteful as it sounds these watches aren't really worth servicing unless you can do it yourself. Even then most would just swap out the whole movement / use it for parts.

        • @pointnlarf: the movements are very cheap, so you just buy a new one and drop it in if you want. However, the movement is a workhorse and should last a long time. Consider the cost of a battery change and waterproof test and it's probably cheaper over time. Or sell it and buy a new one without much loss - resale is good.

          The SKX007 would link to is an iconic, superior watch with 200WR that is ISO certified. It fits and looks beautiful IMO and you can't go wrong. You can easily mod it with sapphire crystals and ceramic bezels.

          You can't really go wrong with either.

        • @pointnlarf:

          I have lots of old seikos, and most are auto's.
          Most are 60's and 70's vintage, and with the exception of one or two they have been rock solid workhorses that have not needed servicing.
          As has been said, the cost of multiple battery changes over the years with a quartz watch will cost much more in the long run ( unless you are able to do it yourself )

    • Same seller also has the SNZH57 for 155 shipped too
      https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Seiko-Mens-5-Automatic-SNZH57K-B...?
      Really keen to get one and try the FFF mod but im not brave enough.

  • Damn, If only I didn't already have one of these with a different bezel…I'd be all over this.

  • Does anyone have an idea how much it costs to get it repaired? My Old Seiko 5 fell on the ground once and doesn't work properly since then. Runs faster than usual and I want to get it repaired.

    Great find WatchNerd :) Also, if anyone is undecided on purchasing this and concerned that it may sell out by the time they make their decision (like me), here are the actual stock numbers as of 12:52AM on the 29th;

    • Seiko 5 Blue Dial Auto: 58
    • Seiko 5 Black Dial Auto: 94

    If you want to check again as it only shows 'limited quantity available', follow the second method listed on this site.

    • wow!! you're so smart.

    • Thanks! This is what I like about Ozbargain - the collective power of wisdom and experiences.

      Well that and forum posts about high-yield investment automobiles, bonut problems, and a general expectation of pro-bono lawyer advice on car accidents.

        And chocolate.

        • And Store Reps who have no idea about what OzBargain is and try to flog off crap products at prices up to 100x that on AliExpress and similar sites.

      Thanks stuhtb!

  • I think I've bought over $1k worth of watches over the past few months through post like these. The positive is that I've been able to start a small watch collection. The negatives is that I'm a little hooked and my wallet is getting bled :(

  • Almost… a bit small for me nevertheless it pretty good watch.

  • Waiting for a good deal on some Presage watches.

    • A good way to get a Presage is through the Japanese website https://global.rakuten.com/en/

      This is the global link. They have many JDM models too that are hard to find and you'll never see one here selling one. They sell many limited edition models too that are considerably higher priced in Oz. They sometimes have cashback of 15 to 20% through their own cash back company, Ebates. I think at the moment the cash back is 15%.

      If you are interested there is a deals thread on WatchUSeek and another one on Seiko new releases.

      • Cheers. Just had a quick look and didn't find anything I liked. I'll keep an eye out though!

    • Yeah my go to for the Presage and other nicer Seiko ranges is Ebay or Rakuten. Also a little known online shop: https://yamato-nadesiko.link/

  • Great deal WatchNerd. The watch is on the smaller side, nevertheless a great deal!

  • Thx OP! Bought the blue one. Cheers

  • Can the SNZF15K band swapped with leather or those military watch straps? Not a big fan of metal bands. Also, I have small wrists, so the biggest watch I wear is 40mm. Not sure if this will look big on my wrist.

    • Yes you can do a watch strap like a nato or Zulu or a leather band. It will wear smaller than the metal bracelet. What is your wrist size? I suggest doing a Google search for the watch code or 'seiko urchin' and your wrist size and you will get some hits.

      • I really never sized my wrists, but they're pretty thin. I have one of those cheapo 37mm Seiko 5 watches, and that fits my wrist perfectly. Will do the Google tip you've mentioned. Ta

        • Get some string and wrap it around your wrist where you wear your watch. Pinch where the two ends meet and then measure against a ruler, usually in inches. Sounds like you are around 6.5 inches. Sounds like anything 40mm might be OK. Remember though, a couple of mm makes a big difference on a watch. If it has a diver's bezel it may wear smaller than a thin bezel like on a dress watch. Also, the length of the lugs shouldn't hang over your wrist. I have the next model up the, SKX009, which is also 42mm, but due to the case shape, it definitely wears smaller. I would advise you to look at a Seiko SKX013 which is only 38mm and is much better than your Seiko 5. You could easily sell the Seiko 5 on eBay too.

        • @ilikeit: Thanks for the tips, mate. Really appreciate that as I am watch-challenged (hope WatchNerd & PCJ won't see this confession). :)

        • @PJC: Haha! Love this. May you always keep this power vested in you, PCJ. :D

  • Some of those links are showing that the ebay 20% off coupon PUPIL can be used
    Has anyone tried?

  • One of these days I am going to get a new watch because of watchNerd..

  • As the recent recipient of a very nice Seiko (similar but significantly more expensive to this) can't recommend the brand enough. $130 for something of their build quality is a steal, would be a fantastic first watch.

  • Missed it, I should have pulled the trigger yesterday morning.
    SNZF15K - out of stock

    I'm glad I didn't take too long to decide, delivered today and I'm really happy with the purchase. Cheers OP! :)

    • Thanks for the photo, it's a very nice looking watch and should last about 20 to 25 years before needing a service.

      •  

        I hope so too :) Any leather strap recommendations? Will probably swap out the bracelet to something like this in the future, so wanted to ask if you had any other suggestions?

  • shipping was quick got mine yesterday

  • prices have gone up again?
