Yea but the skx is a classic and 5 sports branding cheapens it IMO

Unless you KNOW what you are getting, I normally would NOT recommend cheap mechanical watches.

First, accuracy, these are NOT as good as their Eco-drive/Kinetic (Citizen/Seiko) counterparts using solar/motion power.

Second, maintenance cost of automatic (mechanical) watches are very high. To service these $250 watch, it will cost about $100 or so or more from competent watch maker and it will probably need the service within 10 yrs or so (or sooner - rarely later unless you can live with quite inaccurate - within a minute or more per day - watch)

Which brings me back to the longevity. Main argument against the Eco-Drive/Kinetic watches are their longevity as many of them failed when their capacitor goes. I BELIEVE that can be fixed for about the same price as automatic servicing so longevity is a moot point IMHO as I have seen them lasting couple of decades without any issues as well AND their accuracy won't degrade over time. Either they work or not work.

So, unless you WANT the automatic (for one reason or another - maybe the look you want isn't available in Quartz format), my suggestion would be to stick with Eco-Drive/Kinetic watches. (This is coming from a guy who pretty much only wears mechanical watches).

Happy shopping!
Thank you Captain Obvious.

Who on earth is rating this post as not helpful??

Thanks for this. Very informative.
I didnt, but people are probably doing so because mechanical watches arent about just being practical or a good value. A $9 casio is your best bet if you want cheap reliable time.

Ignore the guy that wrote a wall of text on cheaper mechanicals.

The "cheap" seiko mechanical are proven workhorses. Not super accurate out of the box but ANY local watchmaker can regulate it for $50. I had this ages ago when I was a one watch guy and it went to hell and back. The main advantage of Seiko mechanical over Swiss is these go on for a long time without requiring any servicing unlike Swiss movements which usually fall between 4-5 years.

Off topic, this is also a hollywood watch. Robert Redford wore this watch in the movie "Lost At Sea".

For entry level Seiko mechanicels, I highly recommend this, SRP Turtle and the Seiko monster. Can't go wrong with any of these.

So, you agree with me then. I don't see any reason to be snarky about it.



I THINK this argument only goes for expensive mechanical watches IMHO. $300 or less mechanicals are not for vanity and I can pretty much only see negatives rather than positives. I don't know, give me some reason for getting this watch that I did not already state in my post.

I am surprised at the negative votes as I NEVER said one should not get this watch. All I said was people who are getting this watch should get it with their both eyes open.
Got it. So if it's not several thousand dollars, or a quartz then dont get it.

Great price for J models. I picked up my K2 for $275 about 5 months ago.

The one in the link you posted is not a J model. They're not "better", but some do like that it says "21 Jewels" on the dial.

SKX + Strapcode's Super Oyster 3D makes for a great beater desk-diver.

I own the K model, got it for around $160 in 2017. Which leads me to this... the SNX is a classic and since it has been discontinued will retain (maybe even appreciate) value much more so than the new Sports 5.
The quality is great for the price even though it has its problems (mine has the the misaligned chapter ring) but I love it everytime I put it on my wrist.

I like Seiko in general though their QC blips can get annoying. But 'Deep Blue' watches (easily searchable) provides a solid alternative using sapphire/AR crystal and various designs/colors for similar money if the branding is not a thing for you. I believe they use a better Seiko-sourced movement, which is hackable and hand-windable. I own their 300M diver (up from Seiko's standard of 200M) and the only drawback is it runs a little large (and of course, doesn't have the Seiko name on the dial). Excellent watch otherwise and they have what seems to be a huge variety, with some smaller watches though for more money it seems.

To those recommending various mods, dial swaps, etc: SD audience skews a bit less inclined to these IMO than say a watch forum. Though I hang out on both I fall in the camp of no or minimal mods (straps are as far as I've gone so far). My thought is I prefer to find what I want in a stock watch. You may not get 100% but perhaps 90, and avoid all that hassle and expense. And you can always adjust your 'wants'. :-)
