Well, the Seiko is an automatic, and while small, I would personally look at that before a quartz Invicta. No issue with quartz, but the combination of Invitcta and quartz turns me off.

I actually just picked up the SNK809 this week to modify. It is a solid little watch, very comfortable, nice strap, exhibition back, and a killer price point. As long as you can deal with a 37mm case (looks slightly larger on the wrist due to the lack of a big bezel), that would be my biased opinion. I mean, $60 for an in-house automatic movement watch is a killer deal, no matter what the style.


Here is mine:

What size strap fits the Seiko? Is it a good watch? I also like the invicta but I am torn on what to get.

18mm lugs. Is it good? I've only had it a few days, so I can't comment but they are very popular because of their price.

60 dollars and a good watch?
Man, you are asking a question best asked at a Fossil fashion watch store
or mall kiosk
Add PP fees, shipping etc, thats what you might get on a forum.

Check e bay and free shipping.
Sellers need to cover costs, so you are really scraping bottom

That Seiko is a great bet and 18mm strap is not bad

I have an SNK805 and an SNXS75. Both have the same movement, same size. The 805 uses an 18mm strap and the 75 uses a 19mm strap. I love them both. Only gripe is they're automatic only, and I don't have a watch winder. They were my most worn watches until I decide to rotate out daily.

Personally, I would pick those over the invicta. Mostly because they run a bit larger. A 40-44 mill watch of theirs look huge, and are super thick... But that's just my opinion.

Here's my Seikos





Note that none of these are on the original strap.

The two styles are entirely different; only you can decide which you like best. Personally, I like the day/date display and the easy-to-read dial of the Seiko. The blue dial is also very nice. (Although I am not a fan of the hour markings being on the inner chapter ring, and the minutes on the outer one.)

Also, be aware that the quartz will likely need less re-setting than the automatic, which is just the nature of the beasts. Can you live with re-setting your automatic watch every 3-6 days, or do you expect to just put it on and go every day?

Seiko, Citizen and Orient would be my field of selection. You're not rolling dice with these brands.

Good luck with your selection. In the end, it really is all about what YOU like! Post some photos/wrist shot when it arrives.
