      37mm has it’s place, especially if you’re dressing in black tie. Something thin that can fit neatly under a cuff is not to be scoffed at.

      •  

        love small watches; I've been wearing my 40.5mm orient bambino less and less these days

        with that said this seiko probably isn't the watch for black tie given its day/date complication

          This 47mm Invicta Grand Diver just dropped in price to $111.64
          Maybe that might be big enough. I added it to the post.

    Perfect size for us slender wristed folks, thanks Watchnerd!

    •  

      Not just for the slender-wristed. 37mm is about the right size to wear with a suit.

      You shouldn't overdo your metals with a suit. You want a reasonably-sized, non-flashy watch, with a small, simple belt buckle. Just make sure the metals match.

      if you're wearing a huge watch and a large belt buckle, you may as well add a ten gallon hat to complete the look.

        Now i want a ten gallon hat.

        am ashamed to say i skipped that step (on purpose) thinking this would sell out straight away and just rushed to rejoin prime and buy….

          Looks like they've got plenty of stock, I would cancel the order & buy again via CR.

    Been waiting for a good deal on Seiko 5 for ages! Thanks OP!

    Anyone know if the stainless steel can be swapped out for leather straps?

    • +2 votes

      yes, you can use any standard 18mm watch strap

    • +2 votes

      It certainly can. Apparently the included steel band is the worst point of this watch, but is easily swapped out.

      Any recommendations for a decent leather strap at 18mm?

      • +2 votes

        Just go to your local jewellers. The prices aren't much more than you'll pay online, you can see the straps in-person, and they will fit it for you.

        •  

          Thanks

      Check out the review that's posted in the deal description. They mention changing straps in there.

    • +2 votes

      They definitely can. You'll need a tool to remove it initially.

      I'd suggest once you've removed it, to switch over to a watch strap that has quick release in them so you can change them out easily going forward.

      •  

        Any recommendations?

  •  

    Would this strap be rough though?

    •  

      Seiko metal straps will be smooth. But they will feel very light and tinny feeling.

      •  

        Yeah you get what you pay for with metal bracelets

    •  

      It's OK.I found these bracelets to be hair nippers, so it'll pull out hairs if you have hairy arms/wrists.

    A great first automatic watch for a teenager. The movement doesn't hack or handwind and the crystal is hardlex so good luck polishing out scratches, but it has applied indices and it looks sharp. Sorely tempted to get one for my oldest son.

    • +1 vote

      Excellent idea. I never considered this for myself, but my son has been asking for an upgrade from the Swatch he’s had since primary school and he prefers bracelets over straps, so I think this would be perfect.

    Take a look at he SNKE51 if you are after a slightly larger version.

    Thanks OP just ordered one. now pls tell me where to find nice leather straps for the watch?

  • +1 vote

    Guys change the strap to leather one, it will totally transform your watch

    • +1 vote

      Agreed, and also looks good with a blue nato. Some pics in this review.

      •  

        Yep I changed 2 of mine and they look very classy now.

        • +1 vote

          bought 2 WOCCI 18mm leather straps to go with it :D

  •  

    Nice watch, especially for the price.

    Highlights for me are the proportions, the versatility, and the quality of the dial, hands and case. Wears very comfortably because it's small, light and thin.

    Lowlight is definitely the bracelet. I found it super annoying to re-size even with the right tools and plenty of experience. What's worse is the sound it makes. When I move my wrist the bracelet rattles and jingles and just generally feels cheap.

    If I can find a suitable bracelet I'll be swapping it out and I think it'll really improve the watch.

    I got the invicta today. The crown was broken on arrival and wouldn't rotate/pull out. Good looking watch but questionable quality.
