This fun, colorful chronograph seems straight out of the 1970s, and with its matching NATO strap, is a perfect way to get into the fall spirit. It exists in Seiko’s retro-inspired Recraft Series and features solar-charged quartz movement — which means it’s highly accurate and hassle-free, never requiring a battery change. At 43.5mm wide in steel, it will wear boldly, and the Seiko name means quality, value, and the respect of the watch crowd. Best of all, it’s on sale on Amazon now for $173 — that’s a full 51% off its full retail price of $350.
