SNKL23 SEIKO 5 Automatic (Self Winding) Gents Watch that looks like a million bucks.
Long revered by those in the know as the most unbeatable bargain in watchmaking by a huge margin, the Seiko 5 got its start all the way back in 1963, when the very first – then known as the Sportsmatic 5 – first came out. There is very little difference in appearance between the Sportsmatic 5 and the Seiko 5 today, though over the decades, the number of Seiko 5 models has swollen to include... I have no idea how many models, but it’s a lot, and it includes everything from pretty darned dressy models like the one you see here, to military style.
This particular watch SNKL23 is an excellent example of the type: round, with the crown at 4:00 and set into a recess in the case band. The level of quality and finish is not objectively at the most superlative level, but it is almost unbelievably well done for the price tier the watch occupies. Hands are extremely well made, well shaped and polished; the pinstriped dial is subtle but very attractive, the lume plots are perfectly executed and there are actual faceted applied markers. The color of the day and date rings matches the dial as well. The 38 mm case is gracefully shaped, with brushed flanks, and the polished surfaces are absolutely mirror bright.
The Seiko 5 originally got its name for the 5 attributes each one was supposed to possess: self-winding, water resistant, day-date in a single window, recessed crown, and a durable case and bracelet. SNKL23 has all those things.
We suggest you to put SNKL23 on a high quality Louis Arden leather strap 18mm above RM50, and it looks sharp enough you could cut yourself looking at it.

CONSTANT EVOLUTION + IMPROVEMENT
Seiko is not a watch just for special people. It is a watch that anyone around the world can wear and our duty to our customers is to constantly improve and evolve the design of our movements, using Seiko’s accumulated technology to provide higher value than ever before.
ENERGY IS EVERYTHING
In 1959, Seiko invented the Magic Lever, the ingenious mechanism that winds the mainspring more efficiently. This device harnesses all the energy created by the rotor as it turns in both directions, clockwise and anti-clockwise, greatly increasing the power transfer to the mainspring and delivering faster winding speed. Seiko is one of the few ‘manufactures’ that is capable of producing every component in house, including the main spring and balance spring, parts that form the very heart of every mechanical caliber.
DESIGN = THINKING OF PEOPLE'S LIVES
We are not just designers who create designs. We are passionate believers that Seiko must always delight immediately and satisfy in the long term. As I imagine each Seiko design, I see the watch playing a role in its owner’s life. It ticks as the good times give pleasure, as the happy times give joy and it is a re-assuring presence when sad times intrude. We would like Seiko to be with the customer’s heart all the time, whatever the moment. We hope that it becomes our customer’s trusted friend, and that is what drives us to take up the challenge of innovation every day.
WATCH FROM A TRUE MANUFACTURE
Seiko’s strength in manufacturing lies in its commitment to integrate every process from the ideas to the in-house production. A design with originality is not a watch. Only when it is finally crafted, manufactured and assembled in the manufacturing department does it deserve the name Seiko. Seiko limited warranty covers defects in watch movement or functionality up to 1 year from date of purchase.
