Acquiring watch collectables is a time-honoured practice. It is only natural to want unique timepieces that appeal to your sense of aesthetics and functionality. No watch collection can be considered complete without a timepiece or two from Seiko. If you’ve gone through the various collections that this watch brand has released over the years, you’ll discover that there are hundreds of watches to choose from! Faced with so many options, how will you ever choose? In this post, we’ll be helping you narrow your options just a little bit. Here, we’ll provide you with a list of Seiko watches you should give extra consideration when looking to add a timepiece from this brand to your collection. It isn’t to say in any way that these are the best Seiko watches out there—far from it! However, in different ways, many of the timepieces here demonstrate and represent the culture and ethos of this Japanese watchmaking company better than their counterparts. See 3 Seiko watches that would be genuinely worthwhile additions to your collection below!
The Seiko 6139 Pogue
While more than a few watch connoisseurs would readily disagree, this timepiece deserves the top spot on this list for many reasons. Setting aside the fact that it is a space-flown watch, amply demonstrating the trust and reliability synonymous with the name Seiko, the movement that it boasts is genuinely commendable. Granted, it falls on the more expensive end of the price spectrum, the fact that the watch has aged beautifully and timelessly is yet another reason it so rightly merits a spot in your collection.
The Seiko 6138 Panda
Next on our list is the highly famous Seiko Panda. Boasting many of the same specs that the Seiko 6139 carries, a few noteworthy distinctions make it the most Sterling collectable in its own right. A few key differences include the fact that the Panda spots two sub-registers. Also, unlike the 6139, it can be hand-wound. However, much like the 6139, you should prepare to part with a tidy sum if you want to claim ownership of this legendary beauty.
The Seiko 5 SNXS80 (Gold Plated)
If you’re going to go for a Seiko, why not light up your entire collection? This watch brand isn’t known for making flashy products, however, when they do, they manufacture timepieces that you never forget once you get a sight of, and the gold plated SNXS80 is one such item! This watch is on this list because of its beauty to behold on the outside and within! Suppose you can manage to tear your eyes away from its dazzling design and exterior and take a peek inside. In that case, you’ll find that it runs on Seiko’s 7s26 automatic movement, ensuring your accuracy to a fault! This affordable timepiece is also water-resistant! It checks all the boxes and much more!
