Seiko Samurai Review

The Modern And Sharp Watch: Seiko Samurai Automatic Dive Watch In this article, I would like to introduce you to a watch that I’ll be reviewing here, the Seiko Samurai. It’s an iconic watch – not only because of the catchy and cool nickname, but also because of the modern and sharpness of the design which I, and many others absolutely adore. Like other famous Seikos, the Samurai is also an automatic dive watch with 200 m water resistance, screw down crown and robust construction. Just like the Seiko Turtle and Tuna, the current version of Samurai watch released last year (2017) is actually aRead More →

Citizen Grand Touring Review

A Review of the Citizen Grand Touring Sport The Citizen Grand Touring Sport watch is something that will surprise anyone not familiar with the Japanese brand. Currently, Citizen is most famous with its reliable and techie looking Eco-Drive solar watches. I’m sure you have at least seen their watches in ads on TV or elsewhere. Their flagship Eco-Drive are usually watches with various functions (chronograph, atomic timekeeping, GPS, etc.) and features busy yet cool dials. Which is why the sight of this Grand Touring Sport watch is a surprise. It’s everything that Citizen is not well-known for currently: automatic movement, dive watch and trendy analogRead More →

Seiko Shogun SBDC029 Review

The Seiko Shogun is one of the most popular dive watches among Seiko fans for very obvious reasons: the great looking design and the lightweight titanium case. In this post, I’m going to write about the Seiko Shogun review so that you’ll know what the watch is all about, its detail specification and whether it’s the right one for you (or you’re better off with a cheaper watch… I’ll save that later).   Why The Shogun Nickname? First and foremost, I’m sure you are wondering why is the watch called “Shogun”? The Shogun is actually a nickname given by Seiko fans on the WUS siteRead More →

Tissot Powermatic 80 chronometer dial

Chronometer is a revered watch type among watch fans. It’s considered one of the highest standard in automatic watch world for a very simple reason – it’s much more accurate than most of them. It’s also quite expensive with a higher price tag – usually thousands of dollars. This higher price is attributed to the higher labor and material costs. Not to mention, COSC certification process to get the coveted chronometer title costs some money too. And yet, Tissot managed to do what I never expected – manufacturing a chronometer at less than $1000. And if you get it from Amazon, the price can evenRead 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

Seiko 5 SNZF17 or The Sea Urchin Hi guys. Today I’m writing about the Seiko SNZF17 review, or the so-called Seiko Sea Urchin watch. It’s also widely known as poor man’s Rolex Submariner for its Submariner-inspired design – 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) to make their own dive watch style. This is one of the reasons why Seiko (and other Japanese watch brands) are respectable in this field. Their willingness to ensure their products have identity and not justRead More →
