An everyday, budget-friendly, reliable, and trustworthy watch
The SNK809 has gotten a lot of popularity and respect over the last couple of years. And rightfully so. It's 37mm size is excellent. It's not small by anymeans. I'm a 6.5" wrist, so it's perfect for me. Ant more than maybe 7.25, 7.5" wrists and I'd suggest trying before buying. It's equipped with a reliable automatic movement, which means no battery is used. The movement requires a rotary component, which is visible on this watch (very cool feature), spin based on kinetic and potential energy from your everyday movement. The watch wears great for many sizes, however I may suggest swapping off the strap (just pull the strap off each lug end with an appropriate tool), as many would just find it adequate at most. It looks nice for the watch, I just know not many people find there are better options in the aftermarket. Speaking of the aftermarket, there are also a lot of customization options for this watch. As mentioned, straps are one. There's also dial-crystals, which after a while it may be required, since this is a Hardlex crystal, meaning it's a mineral crystal with a sapphire crystal coating if I'm correct.
All in all, this is my first Automatic watch. I knew Seiko would be a great first automatic watch, specifically the Seiko 5 line. I'd recommend this to anyone looking for a sub-$100 watch, not just automatic watch. This would be great for adults whom would like to get there kids into watches.Read full review
