I have worn a watch every single day of my life for the previous 2 decades. I wear them because they tell the time with only a flick of a wrist (rather than bringing out my telephone) and because it’s one of the few fashion accessories men must wear.
The past decade though has found an intriguing change of my interest in watches. When I first found Swiss watches it all occurred. I can’t describe why I ended up possessing a couple of them. I think it’s a mixture of peer pressure, love of the layout and well just presuming that they’re the kind of watch I aspire to have at that age or should have.
As the years passed owning them became less and less enjoyable. For starters they started to miss minutes. That’s right. MISS MINUTES. For all the craftsmanship that these luxury watches were known for, they weren’t accurate.
On different occasions when this occurred I inquire what’s incorrect and would bring them to the store. The comments I had was that it’s not uncommon for their sake to overlook some minutes every occasionally but it’ll be better once I send it for servicing.
How much you might ask would servicing price? Well… depending on the watch but anyplace from RM500-RM8,000. That’s crazy!
After I realised these high-end watches had become a burden rather than an advantage to me I began wearing an alternate sort of watch. The kind of watch that would never miss a minute.
You can find times when it just doesn’t fit your style. When you’re wearing a suit or a work shirt whether it’s. It just doesn’t seem good.
I needed a watch that was made, wouldn’t miss a tick, seems affordable and not as bad as any high-end watch.
About this time I came across SEIKO.
I just desire to write about things or brands whom I believe in and I have a good impression of Seiko. Recall this post I wrote that got over 80,000 shares.
I view Seiko very positively because it’s a watch maker with a lot of heritage. This man founded in 1881 it.
Kintaro went to make the first wristwatch and his watches were known to be so exact that as Japan National Railway’s “Official Railway Watch” it was made in 1929. I’m reckoning because it kept time extremely well and all of US understand all Japanese trains are.
You understand the battery operated ones that many people wear around our wrists today.
In 1973 they devised the world’s first 6-digit LCD display watch.
And for among the more ridiculous notions the World’s First watch powered by your body heat was released by Seiko. Body heat!
SEIKO Version No: SSA319J1
From the exquisite SEIKO Premier Collection. It’s a stainless steel case and band, Sapphire crystal glass and automatic winding. It’s additionally 10 bar water resistant and contains a see-through case- a 24 hour index and back.
The very same one that’s Wang Lee Hom endorses.
I like it. I believe it fills the gap between having something that’s reputable and affordable and yet seems amazing enough to wear with a suit.
The one thing I requested SEIKO in addition to them giving this watch to me was whether they could give one also. And they said yes.
YES I UNDERSTAND… MAD RIGHT?! I GET TO GIVE AWAY A SEIKO PREMIER!
