This collection is designed to give you a watch for any occasion, while sneakily providing a lesson in horology.
We have three completely distinct movements, Spring Drive, Mecha-Quartz, and an Automatic. Each has its own merit, and taken together we get a broad picture of watchmaking. At this price point we won’t be getting a tourbillon or perpetual calendar, but once we develop a love for the mechanisms we own, there will be plenty more to explore.
The Seiko 5 automatic of course isn’t the highest version of a mechanical movement, but it’s enough to bring the sense of life that an automatic watch brings. A see-through caseback is critical, we can see the mechanism and get inspired to learn more about it. By picking three different movements we have an excuse to learn about each, and a story to tell others as well.
