A watch qualified for everyday wear needs to offer two things: insane durability and a varied aesthetic that matches your day-to-day style. The new Seiko 5 Sports collection hits both of those on the head. The watches build on the success of the iconic Seiko 5, a Seiko staple since 1963. The latest example comes in a host of colorways and strap options, but a few of our favorites are the all-black, black and blue and black and red — each with a matching black nylon strap. But if those don’t catch your eye, there truly is something for everyone. Each watch is based on a dive watch silhouette with a unidirectional bezel, a crown located at four o’clock and a 100M water resistance rating. The Seiko 5 Sports also offers a 24 jewel automatic movement that provides incredible value — just ask any watch enthusiast for the best buy in everyday watches and you’ll hear “Seiko 5 Sports” more often than not. So if you’re looking to replace a worn-out daily driver or just to expand on your existing collection of watches, the Seiko 5 Sports collection is the way to go.
