Seiko SNK805K2 Men’s Watch SNK805 Review


Seiko SNK805 Watch Review Summary

My rating: 9/10. Excellent watch, automatic movement.

Today I’m doing a Seiko SNK805 review. This watch is part of Seiko’s 5 series which were introduced back in 1963, they offer a selection of affordably priced watches with a combination of 3 bar water resistance, automatic movement and day & date display in a single window.

Due to their affordability the Seiko 5 series have been extremely popular, offering a great blend of design and quality. This SNK805 has a traditionally built mechanical movement which winds itself as it’s worn, thus never needing batteries. The dial is in a similar khaki green to the nylon strap and uses silver luminous hands with a red sweeping second hand to tell the time. The glass used is ‘hardlex crystal’ which is Seiko’s own take on a type of mineral glass that gives you a good level of protection from scratches.

My Final Thoughts On This Seiko SNK805 Review:

The Seiko SNK805 is another great watch from the 5 series. Overall a simple yet effective design, I rather like the khaki green that’s been used and most regular readers will be well aware I love automatic watches. A very affordable option and a well earned 9/10 from me.
