My New Seiko Watch

Seiko - Keeping me on track in the New Year

Seiko – Keeping me on track in the New Year

As I look to the New Year, one of my goals is to remember that my phone is not my friend – my friends are my friends. It sounds simple, but like many, I spend way too much time on my phone – even to check the time.

Another goal of mine for 2015 is to be more productive, especially during the hours of 9-5, which is nearly impossible when you work from home. I want to make the minutes count and virtually “clock out” as close to 5 everyday as possible. I think this will help me prioritize things more, and stay on a schedule as well as help me sleep more regular hours (which is much needed!).

What better way to make some of these goals happen than with a shiny new watch? I realize buying a new watch doesn’t help with my goal of “not spending as much money,” but I consider my new Seiko watch a great investment.

I think a watch says a lot about someone and I love that Seiko has a ton of amazing athletes (like Landon Donovan and Hope Solo) as their brand ambassadors. If these watches are durable enough to keep up with their lifestyles, I’m fairly confident it’s spot on for me as well.

I choose the Sportura Quartz watch ($695) which comes with:

  • Hand and automatic winding capabilities
  • 21,600 vibrations per hour
  • Gold plated balance wheel
  • Power reserve: approximately 41 hours
  • 24 jewels
  • Sapphire crystal
  • LumiBrite hands and markers
  • Screwdown see-thru caseback
  • Caliber 4R38
It’s a pretty dainty watch, which is good for me since I don’t always dress up and will help balance it out. What new splurges did you get for the holidays or to kick off the New Year?
