The sporty SEIKO Men’s SNKN01 analog watch is the kind of watch that will make you feel satisfied when you have it on your wrist. It’s an attractive sporty analog watch that features the same 7S26 movement find inside the Seiko SNK809.
I don’t have much to complain about the looks of this watch. Its outer blue ring draws me to it and is like a homing beacon. I always saw myself looking at the watch not just to check the time but because I’m impressed with the watch dial even more. As for the overall build quality of the watch I would give it 6 out of 10. It’s good but it is not the best. You can see some imperfections on the watch face when you view it at about one foot from your eyes which I think is very unusual for Seiko to produce a watch with this kind of problem. On the other hand, the brushed case with two polished stripes that sits on each side of the watch as well as the tops of the lugs are designed perfectly.
The strap made from calf-skin leather feels comfortable on the wrist. Although since this Seiko markets this as a sports watch, I think the leather strap is a bit of a letdown. The leather strap just doesn’t compliment the sporty look of the watch dial when it comes to visual aesthetics.
The 7S26C movement inside the watch has 21 jewels that beats at 21,600bph. Getting the movement started is not that complicated although you can’t hand-wind it. A slight movement will make it seconds get going. Standard deviation is usually -20/+40 seconds per day and the 7S26C movement has +27 seconds per day. It’s not as accurate as other movements but it is still somehow reliable. If you have a watch collection, you should at least get a watch with 7S26C movement inside and the SEIKO Men’s SNKN01 analog watch is a good example of it.
