    Thanks Op, nice clean watch…last time I replaced a battery it cost $50 to replace and re-seal the watch so maybe I should by this one as a backup. 😃

    • +1

      can get a basic tool kit for $20-35 on amazon, just do it yourself, a batter is cheap.
      You also wouldn't take this one in the pool/shower etc if it's only 30m.
      Depends on the watch of course

      • It was cheap seiko watch $160 like the one posted, hence thinking of buying a back up when that one gets lost again. 😅

        • Yeah good idea, they're cheap enough not to matter. If the dial and Hands are nice modding scene to upgrade parts

    "Watch movement: Swiss Automatic." Classic Amazon.

  • +9

    Bargain, nice find pp. Amazon are funny with their specs, saying this has a Swiss Automatic movement.

    It's actually against the law to mislead consumers so I'm not sure how they keep getting away with this crap.

  • Looking to get my first automatic and I just did a quick search on hand winding. I'm not sure if the lack of hand winding has any implications, can anyone advise? does that mean if the watch stops entirely.. I would have to shake it to get it going?

      You've got it - the Seiko shake some people call it.

      Here's a quick video on how to wind and set the Seiko 5.

      • Good idea will try that next time
        Got a snk123 and cheap nato bond strap, great combo.

    • +1

      Yes - in my experience of owning one it only takes a few shakes to get it started and going. Normal body movement can charge it up to full pretty easily.

    • +1

      No handwinding and no hacking. I got the SNK809 as my first automatic with the same movement and it is very robust as I've dropped it and bashed it plenty of times yet it still keeps ticking. A brick wall has managed to scratch my mineral crystal but I intend to smooth it out with a dremel and some diamond lapping paste.

    • 7S26 is pretty efficient as far as automatic winding goes. Hand winding is useful if you're going to miss wearing the watch for a day or two. I generally don't use the hand wind function of my automatics.

      • I read that hand winding automatic watches arent so great either as the gears arent meant to take as much friction as handwound mechanical movements in the long run. I find that believable since I have a seiko with a 4R35B and hand winding it isnt always the smoothest.

    • Just put it on your wrist & Seiko automatics start working with normal hand motion. No need to think about it.

      • -1

        You then have to adjust time correct?

  • I can't add it to my cart - I think it's sold out

  • Price is now $166

  • +2

    Other Seiko 5 deals here & here for those that missed out.

  • Very good price for seiko 5. In Tokyo, saw a similar domestic model made in Japan for around $300 2 years ago.
