I have always had a preference for mechanical watches. My father gave me an
Omega Constellation from the seventies. Later I owned an early Glashütte
automatic watch, which was powered by an ETA movement. Unfortunately my early
watches were either stolen or I lost them.
Some years ago, I discovered by chance the affordable Seiko 5 Sports automatic
watch series. Most people know them because of their affordable but very
attractive diver models. Although I admire large stainless steel diver
watches, I find them uncomfortable to wear because of my rather small wrists.
I bought a Seiko 5 Sports SNZG15K1 automatic military style watch. This is
a very affordable stainless steel watch, which is available in Germany for
about 180 Euro and looks like it costs much more. As with their divers, Seiko has
nailed the looks: This is how a military style watch should look
