We try to offer Seiko 5 deals whenever they come up, because, well — Seiko 5s are awesome. They’re mechanical, they’re affordable, they come in tons of different variations, and they consistently offer some of the best values in horology.
The Seiko 5 Sports SRPB1X Automatic is particularly awesome because at first glance, one couldn’t be blamed for mistaking it for an original reference from the 1970s. With its cushion case, day-date complication (in both English and Spanish) 1/6th second track and wide, polished steel indices, the SRPB1X is brimming with funky ’70s vibes in all the right ways. It’s only the display case back that shows off the automatic Seiko 4R36 movement, a mineral crystal and the oversized 45mm case that give away this watch as belonging to the modern era.
The SRPB1X is available in several different dial colors on a steel bracelet or nylon band for $130, which is $170 off of list price.
