This is a lovely new Seiko from the Recraft series which gets all its design ques from many of the 70s Seiko’s I have in my collection on this site. Watch is made from stainless steel and is powered by an Automatic movement which offers great value for the price.

This is a 2018 Seiko model which is fitted with an automatic movement. Classically Seiko from the 70s & 80s. Crown at 4 is nice to see again. This one is available in black also with stainless steel case. A really lovely looking watch with that retro Seiko DNA all on show.

This is a 2017 model and screams Seiko! There is nothing I don’t like about this watch. 24 Jewel automatic movement, red burst dial with day & date complication. Part of the Seiko 5 range which always offer great features at a price you can afford. Again also available in other colours.
I have this watch in my own collection. I cannot emphasise just how good this watch looks when on the wrist. I don’t often buy new watches but for this I made an exception. Stunning blue dial, lovely sword hands and a matching bezel insert. Day Date complication, automatic movement which has a display back. If you are after a diver style watch for not allot of money then this should be on top of your shortlist!

What can I say about this Casio! its accurate, cheap and the worlds most mass produced watch. Practically unchanged since the 80s in many ways an icon. Okay is not all that stylish but it has all the features you need and will be more accurate than a mechanical. Collectors really should have one just for the reasons I mention.

Seiko SKX is an iconic Seiko diver! for bang for buck this watch delivers. Beautiful dial, pepsi bezel and a jubilee bracelet , which I have to say is one of the most comfortable on the wrist you will ever get. If its an affordable diver you want then this is the one.

People of a certain age like myself will remember these the first time around back in the 80s. Calculator watches were all the rage when I was at school. This is probably why I have so many in my collection. So if you want a little nostalgia in a brand new watch then you cant go wrong with this Casio!

Like the calculator watch these ana digital watches were also very popular in the 80s. I didnt even know you could still buy them new! bargain price for these too. You can get them with a white dial and also in gold case.

SNK807 Seiko 5
Here is an affordable Seiko watch with an Automatic movement. This watch is very popular as I see it all the time in the watch groups I am in. Crown at 4 is a typical Seiko feature too. They come in various colours but I prefer the blue the most. Very nice watch, entry level watch with an automatic movement.

Seiko Men’s SGF204
What can I say about this other than classic 1980s. I really like this look. If you cant afford a Rolex Datejust then this is the nicest equivalent. its a quartz watch and from Seiko so will be reliable and well build. In my opinion you are buying this for the look and presence it has.

Orient Bambino Small Seconds
Orient is a great brand that offers allot for its price point. This watch is no exception, the Bambino range has been going for many years now and offers classic designs on modern watches. This is a classic vintage look with a small seconds sub dial. Watch is 40.5mm case size which fits nicely in todays world. Brown leather strap and powered by an automatic movement. Lovely watch.
