Seiko 5, Automatic.Technology at its best

Design & Looks:

The first watch worked on pendulums. Then came the spring, that had to be wound. Later watches were miniaturized, and became wrist watches. The first wrist watches had to be wound every day. Someone thought, can the movement of the hand be used to wind up watches? And Automatic watches was born. It is a technology in itself.

Quartz watches wiped out hand wound watches, but not automatic watches, they are still around. The most expensive brands in the world sell automatic watches. And owning this technology is possible with Seiko 5. It winds up on your hand movement. Infact you can't wind its spring! Wear it and it starts ticking. Its one object on your body that works with you. You work, you walk, you write, you eat, you lift, its ticks. It stores the energy from your body. It lives on you. Its so personal. Keep it on the table overnight, and wake up surprised, its still ticking. It can tick upto 46 hours till it stops, since it has missed living with you.

How wonderful an inanimate object is designed to stay with you for its living. No battery required, no winding, just put it on your had and it springs to life. Accuracy, comparable to the best in the world. Please note Seiko watches are known for their accuracy. The contract for timekeeping and recording event in Olympics is mostly given to Seiko. I found the watch extremely accurate. I am ready to defend this, I have tested it and compared it with Seiko Quartz Barcelona Collection, that I own. Accurate to the last second. But believe my guys, If I don't wear my Seiko 5, I feel I am neglecting it. Its just on my hand all the time listening to me and ticking the time. That's what its designed to do. A note of caution, I owned a Timex automatic, I had to return it because it suddenly lost time for no reason.

I brought two automatic Chinese, "Jaragar", watches. They are thoroughly useless. Warn you, you buy anything that is not Seiko or Tag Heur in automatic watches, you are buying trouble. This technology is difficult to master. Only reputed brands have perfected it. Don't listen to bullshit that Luxury watch show rooms tell you that Seiko 5 will be discontinued or is discontinued.It is a brand which is always on their catalogs prominently. It was first introduced in 1968. It is a legendary watch, whose charm refuses  to die. Please go to Seiko Showrooms only if you have to buy it. The executives there are trained to tell you the true character and technology of the watch. It has got million fans. Google it and know the truth. Rating nothing less that five star.
