Seiko diving watches are some of the most reasonably priced watches in the category and a perfect starter watch for anyone interested in diver timepiece, without crossing the $500 mark. A noted example is the Seiko SKX173 automatic diver watch with a 42mm casing set on a rubberized (urethane) strap. It runs on the Japanese Seiko 7S26 movement and is cased in steel. Many users call it a “hefty” watch – you can see its girth in the photos.

For the guy wearing the Seiko SKX173 day to day, the short 24 hour power reserve will not be an issue, especially given that the price point comes in nicely at $205. A solid choice for those looking to dip into the watch game without coming close to breaking the bank.
