The world of automatic watches has been awash with so many watches that it has become difficult to select a specific one from the crowded market. The most balanced one in terms of the price and the features is the Seiko 5 SNK809. It has been in our hands since it came out and has does nothing but impress us with its looks and features. We sat down to break it down and give our review of it. Definitely one of our favourite watches under 200.

Build Quality

If you have used a Seiko watch before, then you know that they always have the best build quality ever. The watch in question is among the best quality builds that you can ever find in a watch of this kind. It may not be premium in its build but it feels comfortable and solid enough to last you a good long time. You will also get it fixed in a short while for its simple nature.

Dial, Case and Crystal

For purposes of quality and durability, Seiko have put to use the Hardlex material. Hardlex has been praised by many people for its toughness and it bests common crystal during tests. The case has a finish which makes it one of the most durable budget watches around. If you need a watch for daily use, look no further than this one as it will brave the scratches and accidental knocks without trouble on your side. The simple and reliable dial is perfect for a watch this good.

Clasp and Strap

The strap is one of the best you will get in any watch in this class. It comes across as solid and flexible enough to keep you going for a very long time. It also holds tight unto the watch for that good and firm feeling when on your wrist. The clasp is simple and branded with the Seiko name. It is also reliable and worth it price.

The Downside

The problems with this watch are but negligible. First of all, there is the little affair of not being given a particularly attractive strap. Also, the watch has a deviation of +/-34 seconds per day which means that it could lose lots of time for each day. However, that is no reason to avoid the watch as it has been found to be very reliable and rarely goes out of sync with the standard time settings.
