Why Everyone Needs a Seiko in Their Collection

Why Everyone Needs a Seiko in Their Collection

It can be daunting for those at the beginning of their watch-collecting journey. With many brands in different price ranges and the various opinions of forums and social media, it can take time to pick where to start. One fantastic rule to follow is to find something reliable that you’ll wear regularly that suits your taste and won’t break the bank. The brand we’re talking about today is the Japanese legend Seiko. 

Seiko is a favourite of many, regardless of taste or budget, but why? Well, it’s simple. Seiko is a brand that has designed and crafted some of the most iconic watches, and there’s something throughout the collection for everyone. The brand offers dive watches, chronographs, pilot watches, dress watches, GMTs, and field watches for everyone’s taste and style. Besides their design language, Seiko has built fantastic watches for generations with reliability and durability in mind, and their watches, if looked after, can be handed down for generations. 

The most popular collections from Seiko are the Seiko 5 Sport, PADI (Professional Association for Diving Instructors) and Presage. Seko 5 Sport models are a fantastic budget-friendly option from Seiko that provides reliable movements with iconic designs. The best examples are the SRPD (three hand w/ date) and SSK001K1/SSK003K1/SSK005K1 (GMT) Seiko 5 Sport models, which feature the iconic design of the Seiko SKX, discontinued in 2019. The SRPD and SSK models were the best way for Seiko to keep the SKX design going but in a more modern and contemporary way. Other variations of the Seiko 5 line (SRPE, SRPG27K1 and SSK023K1) are dressier but maintain a classic and clean aesthetic. 

The Seiko Presage models are a step above the Seiko 5 Sport, featuring more dress watch styling (the Seiko Cocktail Time) and a dressier take on a dive watch via the SRPG05J. The Seiko Presage SRPG05J features a more refined design with a slightly nautical theme, which can be worn for casual or dressy occasions. With its boxed crystal, applied indices and streamlined design, the SRPG05J is an excellent example of what the Presage line offers. 

The Seiko PADI collection is the best choice for high-quality dive watches and precision chronographs. The PADI collection is designed with proper tool watch usage in mind and built to withstand the depths, the race track and the highest mountain peaks. With various sizes, functionalities and designs, the PADI collection has something for every adventure. 

From Seiko 5 Sport to PADI Divers, Speed Timers, and Presage, Canada Watch House carries all the Seiko goodness your heart desires. Feel free to take a look at what we have in stock!
