Talk about a steal. We're not suggesting you throw your Submariner on eBay in favor of this thing, but if you're just getting into the watch game or are looking for a radical gift for a friend or family member---this bad boy, the Seiko Men's SNK809, is your ticket. Here's what we're looking at...
-- AUTOMATIC movement. No little battery and computer chip powering this thing, it's all gears and old school engineering keeping this thing ticking. This sort of thing normally costs a pretty penny.
-- Has a slick and durable mineral crystal dial window and features luminosity, sweeping second hand, exhibition case back, and a date window that can be formatted in English or Spanish.
-- A tasteful case diameter of 37mm.
-- A good looking 18mm canvas strap. We would recommended picking up one or two alternatives from the guys at Crown And Buckle to keep the thing looking and feeling fresh. An Army green NATO would look especially sharp paired with this.
-- A regular price of $195, it's marked down 68%.
Sounds like a no brainer decision for people looking to pick up a solid timepiece on the cheap... Here are some photos from the guys at Worn & Wound that will probably convince you to click "add to cart" if you haven't already.
Such a good looking timepiece. Shouts to the buds at Supercompressor for digging up this steal.
