Seiko SNZF15K1 Automatic Watch Review


Seiko SNZF15K1 Watch Review Summary

My rating: 8/10, Great watch, automatic movement.

Seiko SNZF15K1 watch is part of Seiko’s 5 sports series, a popular well built selection of watches. This model from Seiko has that Rolex submariner style that I suspect it was inspired from. It has the diver’s feel to it but only has 100m water resistance so that’s worth keeping in mind. It uses an automatic movement which is something I’m always happy to see. Overall it has a great lightweight feel to it despite it being a bit of a chunky watch.

My Final Thoughts:

Seiko SNZF15K1 watch is ideal for those looking for a Rolex Submariner style watch at an affordable price. Being made by Seiko you know you’re getting a quality watch. The luminous features make the watch easier to read so it’s nice to see these included. For me personally I love watches that use automatic movements and I’m a fan of the design of this model. The main disadvantage would be accuracy as mechanical movements loose more time than a quartz would over a month, but for me it ends up being pretty negligible.
