The GMT Goodness

The Seiko watch 5 automatic series has always been a crowd favorite, and if you’re just starting to collect watches, Seiko is an excellent choice. Recently, Seiko decided to expand on their affordable and quality timepieces with the new Seiko GMT watches. On top of being an SKX expansion, this collection is Seiko’s first GMT movement targeted toward entry-level buyers because of its affordability.

These new Seiko watch 5 automatic models maintain the exact dimensions as the original quartz SKX, with one exception: a slight increase in the bezel width to fit the 4R34 automatic movement. This is pretty impressive and comfortable on the wrist, as Seiko didn’t make it a more prominent type of piece. Moreover, these Seiko GMT watches feature a 24-hour bezel and flange, which means you can track multiple time zones. These models are simple but beautiful and sturdy. It’s also easy to read since the date is shown through a cyclops magnifier on the crystal.

Similar to the mission statement of its Seiko 5 line, the automatic Seiko Sport 5 Black is a great go-to daily wear watch. The 24-jewel movement with 41 hours of power reserve found in this trusty timepiece provides you with 21,600 vibrations per hour and runs very smoothly. It’s also water resistant up to 100 meters. The new collection has three versions: black, blue, and orange. The black and blue version features a red GMT hand; the orange, a black one. So far, the blue model is already sold out, but we will be taking a look at the black, and orange Seiko GMT watches.


The Seiko 5 SSK001K1 GMT is the black model of this new Seiko GMT watches. Compared to the other two models, this has a much more bold and muscular appearance. This Seiko Sports 5 black watch has a matte black dial with white indexes. It’s a straightforward watch that works in any wardrobe or occasion. Furthermore, an excellent feature is the bracelet strap, a 5-row Jubilee-inspired steel band that adds to this watch's relaxed style and retro appeal.
