Seiko Watches - Underrated?
Very true, in countries other than Japan. At any price point, a Seiko watch (mechanical or otherwise, but especially mechanical) is extremely good value for the money. The best watches from Seiko (one example
from the limited-production Spring Drive Credor line) spot some of the best finish and polish ever to grace the world of haute horlogerie. I'm talking Daniels / Dufour quality. They are also at the forefront of technical innovation, though their efforts in this respect is more geared toward the fundamental improvement in timekeeping, rather than ostentatious pushing the boundaries of complicated watches.
