About this deal

Seiko has achieved something rather incredible with the SNK807. They managed to create an extremely affordable automatic watch, throwing in a day/date complication as a bonus and succeeding at hiding its true price pretty well. At this price point, significant concessions are unavoidable, but Seiko has been able to make them not be too apparent or painful. The result is a watch that is not perfect, but does a lot of things very right for very little money. The beautiful blue dial of the SNK807 feels like a well-executed exercise in restraint. There are no distracting elements present and Seiko did a good job on making the dial clean and legible. The SNK807 comes with Seiko’s own Calibre 7S26C, a budget movement found in many Seiko 5’s and Seiko SKX-divers. It has a fairly standard power reserve of 40 hours.

The SNK807 is fitted with sword hands for the hours and minutes. The seconds hand closely resembles a straight pin. It has its end tipped in red, which really adds some interest to the watch as a whole. The hour and minute hands both have a lume filling that do their job more than sufficiently. The second hand has lume in its counterweight. I expected to find significant concessions in the movement, but Seiko has improved it’s calibre a lot over the past two iterations. Whereas the 7S26(A) was once notorious for losing up to 30 seconds per day, the 7S26C has reduced that to a very reasonable 3-5 seconds a day.
