The idea for Seiko 5 watches started back in 1963. Seiko wanted to set the new standard for accessibly priced automatic watches and it’s something they did a great job with. You can learn more about the Seiko 5 story here.

Watches 1 – 4 are all from the Seiko SNXS series which are all very affordable Seiko watches. They have these great exhibition casebacks so you can view the Seiko 7S26 caliber movement going to work. They have a slightly smaller than average casing size of roughly 38mm but do check the individual model for any slight differences.

Watches 5 – 8 are all very similar but show off a range of popular colour choices. They’re Canvas strap watches that feature exhibition casebacks and a 30m water resistance rating. The Seiko 5 SNK809 is one of the most popular Seiko 5 watches available so make sure to check it out. They’re also very affordable.

Watches 9 – 12 are a bit more expensive than the previous watches. One of the main reasons for this is that they’ve upped the water resistance rating to 100m in these watches. There’re a few Seiko divers style watches that are worth looking at.

Watches 13 – 14 have these great textured dials that really stand out. If you wanted something a little different, that’s very affordable then head straight to these. As with most the Seiko 5 watches, we’re back down to the 30m water resistance rating.

Overall it was a really interesting list to put together, I have my own Seiko reviews available for a lot of them that I suggest reading also. Hope you enjoy reading through these 14 best Seiko watches for men.
