Brand new. Fast delivery. Great price. Looks fantastic. This will be my everyday watch for years to come. Can’t go wrong here really, it’s spot on!
Really good watch. Great dial and a decent powere reserve. Though the bracelet isn’t the best quality, it feels very comfortable and there is no hair pulling. Definitely a watch I recommend.
Why spend a fortune on a watch
When this watch does just as well at every thing as the top range of watches at a fraction of the price l highly recommend this make
This watch suits me as I find it extremely easy to read both in daylight and at night. Strap is solid and good double clip closing is a bonus. Easy to set to exact time and keeping time perfectly. Very good price and service from seller.
Fab watch I always buy seiko if I can ,it’s quite heavy on your arm ,looks great Orange is my favorite colour it’s like a bit of Summer on your arm,I wouldn’t recommend wearing it except for going out it’s bulky I’ve come close to damaging it a couple of times on surfaces,be careful with i
As I mentioned good value for the money from one of the best affordable brands, keeps good time and goes well with whatever you ware.
Sold by Amazon
Watch stopped working after one week. Ordered replacement which arrived broken, links missing from bracelet & clearly had been worn/used.
Since ordered same watch from Watchnation (via amazon) and I’m delighted. Better packaging and protective film over Watch face, case & bracelet. The lack of these on the 1st two sent by Amazon should’ve been a red flag.
Great watch, choose your supplier carefully.
It’s a nice, heavy, comfortable, masculine watch with an easy to read face and Day/Date.
A bit larger and heavier than my Omega Speedster Mk2, and that is a substantial watch.
I like the mesh strap. I have no idea how good the waterproofing is. I usually remove my watches before doing dishes, having a bath or shower. At 70 I don’t expect to dive deeper than 100 metres again in my life.
My only very slight gripe is you really have to pay attention to the clasp. If you haven’t checked it’s locked, it can come adrift later. I do prefer the fold over and click type that I have on my smaller white faced Seiko Sea Urchin.
There is a blue faced version of the same watch at nearly 70 more than I paid for this. (What’s with the pricing guys?) I would have bought but definitely not disappointed with this.
Loved this watch.birthday present for my grandson and he was over the moon.a few links had to be removed as would be with any watch.its lovely on,well balanced and looks amazing.he was delighted with it.colour green is very nice and a wee bit different.no complaints at all.
Good quality watch nice colour dial . Only minor problem is the yellow hands can be difficult to see against the orange dial.
Great, great watch. It’s a looker and size-wise the fit belies the spec it fits even my small wrist very well. Generally there is very little to dislike about this watch, may be the bracelet is a little rattley and a sapphire crystal would be a nice upgrade over the hardlex but is worth up to 300 for the finishing alone.
Seiko, the brand that caters for all budgets and taste. A beautiful watch at a very reasonable price. Swapped the bracelet out for a NATO strap and this compliments the watch even more so than the oyster bracelet. Watch case is beautifully finished and the exhibition case is always something to admire. Seiko movement keeps pretty good time and the bezel actually lines up with the dial markers. The lume is very impressive and the overall dial is simple, and aesthetical on the eye. Overall, it feels sturdy, well engineered, nicely polished and looks more expensive than it is. If you’re new to Seiko, I recommend you try them out and you may just catch the Seiko bug. I liked it so much, I purchased the same model, with the Orange dial.
It’s a Seiko so it’s easy to adjust and reliable. What more can you ask for at this point unless you intend to go diving, which I don’t…
Now, I have been collecting watches for little over a year and this Seiko 5 is my second Seiko. My first impressions were brilliant, the bezel has a great action (better than my more expensive Seiko Samurai retailing at $450) The pop of green on the dial and bezel is subtle but noticeable in a good way alongside that nice burst of orange on the seconds hand, also the movement is great for the price. Seiko are known for their competitive in house movements at this price range which is a great feature for us watch enthusiasts to enjoy. 100m of water resistance cannot be sniffed at, at this price range and the stock nato strap is adequate ( as you can see I have already swapped mine out ) and you will have great lume on the hour markers and hands with Seiko being one of the leaders in this market for luminescence. Overall, it got me thinking that this could be the perfect automatic starter watch for new enthusiasts, as you are getting a very well rounded package from a great brand with a lot of history in this market. Also the modifying scene for these watches is huge and they generally hold their value pretty well. I would 100% recommend this watch if you have the money as it is a do anything, go anywhere piece that offers a great comfortable wear and good time keeping.
I received it an hour ago. Exactly as represented, no bad surprises. No obvious QA/QC issues (was afraid of that…).
Really lovely watch. Very nice color, bezel is nice and smooth, very satisfying operation. As every other bezel, this one has a backtrip but it’s almost non-existent. Bezel doesn’t wiggle and it’s better than most of the watches in this price range. I’ve seen worse on Rolexes, in fact. Only one thing I don’t really like and it came as a surprise is the bilingual (French/English) week-day names. I don’t see a way to control it and it’s going on my nerves.
Now, for those who think they are buying a SRPD model. Look at it more carefully and read the details. This is not a typical SRPD. In fact it’s not a real diver at all. With only 100m rating (not stated on the dial, surprise) and no bezel pip dot lume. NATO strap doesn’t look anything special, but you can see it’s made specifically for this watch. I don’t like much the green/cyan seconds hand. In my mind a yellow one or a red one on this chocolaty design would fit better. But these are all things I knew before I bought the watch and can’t complain much.
This is a great looking watch. I got the black and red version (SRPD83K1) as I wanted something different to the norm. It looks fantastic, like something designed by Kylo Ren, Darth Maul or Darth Vader! It is my first Seiko but not my first automatic watch. I’ve included a number of photos as well as a video (including lume shot) which I hope you find helpful.
Much has been written on watch sites/forums etc about the fact this isn’t a proper divers (no screw down crown and only 100 metres water resistance) but honestly I couldn’t care less. This looks great, has enough water protection for 99.9% of things most people do and it’s also been accurate and only needs adjusting every so often.
I initially thought that this version wouldn’t have any lume because… well it’s red… but I was wrong. Charge it up via sunlight/light and the red markers, hands and second hand lollipop counterweight all glow a orange/pink colour. It again looks great but sadly doesn’t last that long into the night before fading… but still as I was expecting none I’m pleased with it.
The case is a smooth black and the unidirectional bezel (with non-lumed aluminium insert) turns with a reassuring weight and a damped clicking. There is little to no back-play on it either. The applied indices and hands are excellent and the chrome/metal surrounds catch the light really well so that the dial is legible in almost all daylight conditions. The crown pulls out nicely, hacking the watch (stopping the second hand) and finding the date and time adjust positions is easy. You can also use it to hand wind the watch to get it going if you so wish. Alternatively a little shake should be enough.
At the rear of the watch is a display caseback so that you can see the automatic movement and jewels doing there thing. I love showing this to my youngest daughter who is fascinated by it, especially the jewels!
Seiko use their propriety Hardlex crystal rather than Sapphire crystal and that would always be my one complaint as Sapphire will not scratch over time. That said with a bit of care the Hardlex should be fine and not an issue.
The strap…. is good to OK. The length is great for my 7.25 inch wrist with just enough left over to fold back into the metal strap loops. It’s comfy to wear but the nylon could have been a bit better quality. It feels thin. Still you get a Seiko signed buckle and all the metalwork is black to match the case.
I’m very pleased with this and the price when I bought it was fantastic. Only downside is that I now want the all black version!
This is the 4th Seiko I own along with a Kinetic SQ100, Monster Gen 1 and King Samurai and I really like it. I’ve never owned an SKX so I wasn’t going to compare but they are two different watches. SKX is a divers watch and the 5 Sports is more a fashion piece. End of.
The orange sport is a very nice piece. The photos don’t do it justice, the dial really ‘pops’ in the light and there is this metallic orange on the bezel markers that really compliment the dial. The uni-directional bezel is lovely and firm on the turn and absolutely zero play. The crystal is Hardlex (Seiko’s own) and I’m not bothered it isn’t sapphire. My 8 year old Monster has Hardlex and there isn’t a scratch on it and that watch has taken bashing.
The applied indices and logo look really good and match really well with the gold hour and minute hands. However, I fully expect the bezel to scratch easily as I believe it’s aluminium and it’s a soft metal. Lume is typical Seiko which means it’s brilliant. The overall readability and legibility is fantastic, very easy to read.
Build quality is typical Seiko in that for every good there is probably a not-so-good! The chapter ring and bezel line up perfectly, dial is clean and there are no scratches or marks anywhere. The only real downside is the bracelet which I was expecting to be like my Monster and Samurai but it’s cheaper and quite squeaky. I’ll be changing to a NATO strap when I can because the squeak is very annoying. That isn’t to say it’s not comfy, it’s very comfy on the wrist and with 4 levels of micro adjustment you can get the perfect fit.
Inside is the 4R36 (same as the 4R35 in my King Samurai but has day/date) so it isn’t amazing but it’s good enough. Hacking and handing winding are doable if those things are important to you.
Overall, I really like it and will probably daily drive this as much as I can. I’ll definitely be buying more of the 5 Sports to expand the collection.
*Update – switched to a nato strap. Looks epic*
