From the canvas-style nylon strap to the utilitarian dial, Seiko’s Flieger SNK automatic watch follows in the tradition of 19th century military-issue watches. The minimalist dial is adorned with lumed Flieger-style hands, lumed hour markers, a triangle at 12 o’clock, and a day-and-date window at 3 o’clock. Small Arabic numerals on the inside ring denote the hour, while large Arabic numerals on the outside ring denote the minute in increments of five. The round, brushed stainless steel case, which is fitted with a crown at 4 o’clock, is also reminiscent of the classic pilot’s watch.
Note: At checkout, you have your choice between 4 colors. Quantities are limited for each style.
An excellent introduction to mechanical watches and a popular recommendation among enthusiasts, the Flieger SNK features Seiko’s caliber 7S26 automatic movement, which beats at 21,600 bph. It’s equipped with a bi-directional winding design, which allows for a counter-clockwise quick-set date feature. The watch cannot be hand-wound, nor does it offer hacking seconds, though it does have a display caseback that provides a peek at the watch’s inner workings.
