Seiko Recraft Automatic

Great retro styling on a workhorse Seiko movement

I became interested in automatic watch movements after a bad deal on a “fashion” style quartz watch. It was a seemingly great bargain at about 50 dollars on a watch with an MSRP of about $250.  Within the first day, the minute hand became stuck, and I thought it might just be easy enough to pop it open and fix, having a fair amount of mechanical ability.

Once I popped off the back of the case, I was shocked, and even a bit angry to see mostly plastic filler inside the case, that the movement itself was no larger than a dime, and the battery took up almost half of that!

Ever since that day, I vowed to never buy a watch based on looks again. A little web research on what makes a quality watch and I was catapulted into the world of automatic watches. A little more research, and I found that an automatic watch with a quality movement can be had for a very reasonable price. At first I was looking at the wide variety in the Seiko 5 series, but happened upon their ‘Recraft’ series, which have the same movement as many of the Seiko 5’s, but are styled like some of their classic models from the 70’s

This watch has now become my favorite. It keeps accurate time, has a great retro look, and best of all, I can always take a look at the clear case back to see the mechanical inner workings of this watch, not just a tiny battery powered motor.
