Best Automatic Watches in 2017

  Automatic watches is one of the type of watches that I personally love. The novelty of its mechanical parts moving to keep time, instead of relying on the ubiquitous electric-quartz movement is what I consider the best characteristic of the watch – and that is shared with many other automatic watch lovers =) In addition, automatic watch also does not need a battery to run, so there is no problem with a watch battery suddenly dies on you at inopportune moments. Automatic watch is run purely by potential energy stored inside its mainspring, which in turn is keep tighten either by self-rotating rotor asRead More →

Invicta Grand Diver 3049 Review

  In this post, I’m going to write about Invicta Grand Diver review, specifically the two-tone version with reference number 3049. The Grand Diver is part of the family of Invicta’s diver’s watch. I’m pretty sure most of you already know about the Submariner-like 8928/8926 diver’s watches right?     Those are inside the Pro Diver lineup and in fact, I’ve featured both of them in my list of the best automatic watches under $200 (which you can read HERE). The watches just have so much value for money, especially if you love that Rolex Submariner look but won’t or can’t afford to pay thousandsRead More →

Seiko SNZF17 Review

  Hi guys. Today I’m writing about the Seiko SNZF17 review, or the so-called Seiko Sea Urchin watch (more on that later on). It’s also widely known as poor man’s Rolex Submariner – and no, I’m not talking about the Invicta 8926 here. While the Invicta blatantly copied the Submariner design, this Seiko SNZF17 injects Seiko’s own design characteristics (specifically Seiko 5 Sports design) into the well-loved Submariner.   Above is the   And here is the Rolex Submariner   The end result is a watch that looks like the real thing but at a very affordable price (for an automatic watch that is). AndRead More →

Seiko SNKN37 Review

  Hi guys! In today’s article, I’m going to write about Seiko SNKN37 review – one of the watches in the Japanese manufacturer’s Recraft series with gorgeous blue dial and retro square shaped case. But before we go into the review, I think I need to explain a bit about this Recraft series as I’m sure you guys are wondering what the hell it is right?   What is Seiko Recraft Series? The Seiko Recraft series is basically a watch line up by Seiko with vintage vibe designs. And that’s the reason why it was named “Recraft” – a line-up of watches with styles re-manufacturedRead More →

Seiko SARZ005 Review

  Hi guys! Today, I’m going to write a review about the Seiko SARZ005, one of the models in the Seiko 5 Sports lineup. So, what’s so special about the Seiko SARZ005? For a start, it has a unique design (very different than the other Seikos out there) and is an affordable automatic watch. It’s also a Seiko JDM watch.     For Seiko fans, I’m pretty sure you guys are well aware about what JDM or Japan Domestic Model means. It’s basically a watch made in Japan and is regarded as having a higher quality than Seiko watches made elsewhere (China, Southeast Asia, etc.)Read More →

Hamilton Khaki King Scuba Review

  In this post, I’m going to write about Hamilton Khaki King Scuba review (H64515133), a diver’s watch from the American-Swiss brand. And I’d dare say that this watch is among the cheapest Swiss Made diver’s watch currently in the market right now. Swiss automatics are expensive, more so diver’s watches. So to have a Swiss automatic diver’s watch that can be had for around $500 is a very big deal. The watch’s official name is Hamilton Khaki Navy Scuba Auto (taken from its Hamilton’s website but somehow the Khaki King Scuba name sticks. Well, this watch do look a lot like the Khaki King watch, anotherRead More →

10 Best Automatic Dive Watches Under $500

Hi guys! Today, I’m going to cover the 10 Best Automatic Dive Watches under $500 that I’ve reviewed so far. Dive watches are by far, the most versatile type of watch that men can buy. It’s rugged and masculine for outdoor or diving use, while at the same time can still look dressy for office, casual and even black tie events. A simple strap change is what it’s needed to do this. Which is why in my opinion, if I have limited money to buy only ONE watch, I’ll get one of these dive watches. How about automatic watches? Sure, it’s more expensive than quartz but theRead More →
