Seiko5 has 7s26, it is a low beat non hacking, non hand winding movement. They are very reliable, goes on for decades without a service.

7S26 movement is bullet proof, and can run for years with no maintenance. Seiko has perfected the manufacturing tolerances and mass production of this movement over the years. But this movement is old, it's non-winding and non-hacking. If you rotate watches, and this one runs out, you will be masturbating that watch to get it going before you wear it.

Lol. This was me as well.BinaryJay wrote: ↑ I almost never wear my Seiko Monster because I can't be bothered keeping it accurate and worse, wound and on the correct time at all.
Almost always just wear something like my PRG-550 ProTrek / EcoDrive instead - don't have to worry about anything with those solar watches, zero. Kept one in a drawer for the last 8 months? Fine... as soon as it sees light again it goes right back to the correct time and is still pretty much charged.
It turned out that I am not the kind of person that the romanticisms of little steampunk gears and stuff in a watch appeals to enough to me to offset the very obvious downsides.

No, this is super light, the bracelet is very light and a bit flimsy feeling. Total weight is probably under 80g.U4IA wrote: ↑ I assume these are fairly heavy? I used to wear my Seiko Titanium kinetic daily, but working at home I keep forgetting to put it on. I have an older Tissot that seems like brick in comparison. I have a bunch of different Casio Pro Treks I alternate through as well, but dont find those overly heavy.

Test it well when you get it, I have had to return multiple Seiko watches with this movement because the power reserve is much less than the 37 hours it's supposed to have.my0gr81 wrote: ↑ 7S26 movement is bullet proof, and can run for years with no maintenance.

According to Calibercorner.com, the movement is discontinued as well:

Should give you 10 years of good timekeeping before it needs service. Don't let it near magnets.

Prime Day is coming up, for sure a similar Seiko 5 watch will be in the $70ish range on Amazon.ca Prime Day.

This does have a display caseback showing the mechanical movement.Dealmaker1945 wrote: ↑ A 21 jewel self winding watch was quite a piece of precision high tech in the early 60's when I owned one and took it to a jeweller for regular cleaning and adjustment to stay on time.
But why would anyone bother today when decent $15 watches have Japanese quartz movements that keep time within 15 -30 seconds per month? If you want retro mechanical nostalgia, at least get a big fancy one with a window showing the gears.
