This wiki has been updated 8 times since it was first published in February of 2018. While Seiko may not have the luxury brand recognition of a Rolex or Omega, that doesn't mean they don't regularly produce some of the finest watches in the world. They also happen to make timepieces for just about every budget, which gives them the ability to put a high quality watch on anyone's wrist. We've ranked their best offerings here by accuracy, durability, and style. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

June 05, 2019:

Seiko is a massive company that has an incredible amount of watches on the market, so deciding what to include in a ranking is going to come down to taste, variety, and features. Our previous ranking, in this writer's humble opinion, was too heavily laden with dive watches, and that decision was made all the more egregious by the fact that some of them weren't even suitable for recreational diving. We've remedied that by removing some of the less enticing dive models, including a previously included dive computer that's barely a watch to begin with and that wouldn't serve many users for more than a few days out of the year. In their places, we've added the new Grand Seiko GMT Automatic that premiered this year at Basel World, as well as another Grand Seiko that offers the company's much lauded spring drive mechanism. There's also a fun model added from their sports line that has a kind of mock tourbillon added for visual effect only. And we made sure to keep an SKX in the mix because it's probably the most highly regarded entry-level automatic dive model ever produced.
