    Hey WUS, I have a great condition Seiko 5 SNK809 black dial watch that I am looking to part ways with. The movement and watch head are in great condition and keeping good time. This is one of the more ubiquitous watches on the market, but it seems that models from the original Seiko 5 line are...

    Hi All, Here's a quick review video of my latest acquisition of Seiko 5- SNK809K1. I think this is the most affordable automatic watch from seiko and could be a first automatic watch for anyone who is into the hobby of watch collecting. Let me know your views.

    Up for sale is my Seiko 5 SNK809 in near mint, 93% TZ overall conservative condition. Watch was worn in rotation for a couple of weeks, and I’m selling only because I have too many black-dialed watches. Watch has a very faint rub mark on the matte blasted finish on the bezel near the 2:00 that...

    Hi, I want to have my first automatic watch and prefer a field watch type. Which one do you prefer between SNK807 and SNK381? I think SNZG11 is too big for my 17cm wrist. Thank you for your idea. Cheers ;-)

    I got off to a flying stop fitting a NH36 movement into my Seiko 5 mod. I broke the stem trying to get the old crown off. I've been trying to source a replacement crown with no joy. I'm looking at Esslinger's site right now, but don't know the exact dimensions of the crown, or the part number...

    I recently purchased an SNK805 and am wondering how tough/robust it is. Oddly enough, this is far from my first automatic watch purchase, so I certainly realize this is no G-Shock. I do have a SARB017 among my other automatics.

    Hi all, For sale is a SNK Field mod completed by Alchemy Watches (Insta: @AlchemyWatches). At 37mm, this watch wears like a vintage, but with the robustness and reliability of a modern timepiece. The mod is based off the WW2 military / field watches. The mod uses a field dial with both the...

    Title. I recently found this cool dial (Dragonshroud Mother of Pearl White Dial for SKX---, I can't post links) and I want to know if it would be compatible with an SNK809. I'm guessing that it would probably fit because they both utilize the same movement. I'd also love some recommendations...

    Hello. Up for your consideration, the entry level Seiko 5 classic SNK809 black dial! A watch that I bought on impulse, I just don't wear it. An excellent watch for those just starting to get into automatic watches, it has a day date complication that is both functional and aesthetically...

    Okay, first some context for the story. I am a college student with absolutely zero watch modification skills or equipment. I am really proud of the way this experiment came out and I wanted to share it with my favorite WUS forum. So I bought this 809 when I was 16 years old (I'm almost 23 now)...

    Part of my grail search requires me to purge some of the extras I had lying around. Here is a BNIB SNK809 that I bought to pull the movement out for a mod that never happened. I'll let this go for sold$55sold shipped CONUS (paypal). It is a great piece with the highly desirable black date wheel...

    Picked the classic Seiko snk809 up the other day, and decided to customize it to my own taste. It took about 2 hours using a dremel, and some mothers polisher. This is my first watch mod and I really enjoyed the process. I am going to part with the black strap which comes with the watch and...

    I have just recieved my Snk809 and worn it for a day or two when all of a sudden the second hand started stuttering. Badly stuttering. At some points it looks like a quartz movement. My question is what caused this? when i hold it up to me ear the ticking sounds normal and uniform. is it...

    Hello, new joiner here (as well as another similar forum). I recently bought a couple of Seiko 5's (SNKL23 and the SNK809), really enjoying them. I have always been a fan of watches, from my teen years in the 80's with Swatches, then things like Swiss Army, a Tag Heuer, various other fairly...

    Hi friends, Last week I noticed that I have a speck of dust next to the Seiko Emblem on my SNK809! Should I be worried? The winder already displays the classic rattle... I don't want any more crap finding it's way into the mechanism. (I've only had the watch since Late summer 2015). Best...
