My first choice is Seiko Men’s SNK805 Seiko 5. This watch belongs to a special series produced by Seiko that has some very good and above all very affordable automatic watches. This particular watch would probably attract the attention of the more casual guys. The stainless steel case has a diameter of 36 millimeters and it is only 0.8 millimeters thick. According to these dimension I can say that this is something below the average size of most mens watches under 200. This Seiko 5 watch has green dial with a few silver details. On the three o’clock position there is a display that indicates the date and the day of the week. The thing I like the most about the watch is the dial within the dial. It has markings for the hours and for the minutes which is pretty good, especially if someone is learning how to tell the time. The dial is covered by mineral display for better protection. It has a nylon strap and a buckle clasp which is probably one of the reasons why it is so affordable. In addition, the watch is water resistant only up to 99 feet so be careful when around water.

The 3 o’clock position is replaced by a display that indicates the date. The dial is covered by a mineral window that protects the watch from scratches. The band is in form of a bracelet with fold over clasp and a safety mechanism.
