We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again–the Seiko 5 SNK Series watches might be the only real competitor to the Timex Weekender in terms of style, versatility and bargain basement pricing. The SNK803 Seiko 5 watch–one of the best Seiko watches on Amazon–you see here might not currently be as cheap as your average Timex, but it is on sale for 63% off suggested retail price. That’s right, for about an extra thirty-bucks–or $71 total if you’re counting–you can get an automatic watch with a 21-jewel movement, 37mm stainless case, Hardlex mineral crystal, and water resistance up to 99ft. This Seiko 5 watch also includes day/date functionality, luminosity, a sweeping second second hand (no more ridiculous ticking!) and a matching tan canvas strap. Since the tan face contrasts so nicely with the black, white and silver accents, and since it’s a relatively common lug width like 18mm, it’s also incredibly easy to throw a contrasting black leather or nylon NATO strap onto this incredibly affordable watch. Just don’t wait to pull the trigger because the price will probably go up soon.
