The Seiko 5 Sports Line

Back To Top

Seiko 5 is Seiko’s entry level line of mechanical watches. Don’t let the entry-level categorization fool you, though: these are solidly built watches with a plethora of styles. I’d be surprised if you can’t find a model you like.

The “5” stands for the five qualities every watch in this line has: Automatic winding, a day/date function, water resistance, an unbreakable mainspring (or Seiko’s proprietary Diaflex), and shock resistance (or Seiko’s proprietary Diashock).

Read on for a few of our Seiko 5-specific articles.
