Grand Seiko

Grand Seiko has to be one of the best luxury watch brands out there, but sales and deals are limited. That’s why we’re excited to have found 22 Grand Seiko watches with discounts in Jomashop’s Big Winter Sale, going on now through midday Friday. The sale, which commemorates the ending on winter later this month, has a ton of watches (and other items) on sale, but this humble collection of Grand Seiko watches truly caught our eye. Tap the button below to see the full collection yourself — there are only 22 watches represented, each up to 20% off — or keep reading to find out about our favorite watch of the sale.

Our favorite Grand Seiko in the Big Winter Sale

Of all of the watches of Jomashop’s Grand Seiko selection, this watch stuck out to us for its easy-to-read dial and thick, readable hands. Many luxury watches through in a ton of subdials, fancy indicators, and more to signify that they are luxury and to justify their price. This watch — the Grand Seiko Heritage GMT Hi-Beat “Shunbun” — projects its style and elegance in a different way, by having high-quality components and retaining function. While there are lots of elements to this watch, their thick designs, solid colors, and lack of business will give the watch minimalist undertones in a delightful way.

While the thick hour markers lay below the hands, the faint minute graduation lines faintly grace the outer rim of the watch. They’re there, but subtle. The Shunbun survives watch to 330 feet and is covered by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal dome.  On the reverse side of the watch casing, the part that rests on your wrist, you’ll see a bright yellow Grand Seiko lion emblem stamped atop a transparent viewing port that will let you look at the inner workings of the watch.

If this watch does it for you, be sure to tap the button below to find it in Jomashop’s Big Winter Sale, that’s going on now now through Friday. It’s currently 20% off, bringing the price from an already low $5,917 (retail is $6,300) to $5,040. Rather see what else is on sale? See the instead.

This highly-rated Under Armour unisex athletic backpack is $14 off for Prime Day
Under Armour Hustle 5 unisex backpack Prime Day deal

Backpacks can be hit or miss. Some of them are super durable, but whether or not they'll fit all the gear you need is up in the air. The best backpacks are pricier, which makes sense. You tend to get what you pay for. If you're in the market for a solid backpack, Under Armour is offering an excellent discount on the Unisex Hustle 5.0 Backpack for Prime Day this year. Usually $55, you can get the pack for $41, saving you $14, and there are a ton of color options available. You should know, however, that this is a limited-time deal, and we have no idea how long it will stick around. We recommend shopping now if you're interested so you don't miss out.

Here's why you should consider getting the Under Armour Hustle 5.0 Backpack now
Prime Day officially starts July 16 and runs through July 17, so understandably, most people are probably waiting until the official event to do their shopping. If that's you, we get it. However, in recent years, the deals available on Prime Day haven't been much better than the early stuff floating around. Also, a variety of retailers are now involved, so it often pays to look outside of Amazon for deals. In this case, the Under Armour Hustle is available as part of a limited-time deal, and there's no countdown, so we don't know when it will end. It could be gone before you know it or even sell out.

Time for you to get a watch.

Here's why you should shop the Diesel watch early Prime Day deal now
As you probably noticed, there are a ton of early deals to shop now ahead of the official Prime Day event, which runs from July 16 through July 17. Most people might consider waiting until then to make any purchases, but these early deals are often available only for a limited time. Even if other discounts are available later, there is no guarantee they'll be this good. If you see something you like, we recommend shopping early. But in the end, it's all up to you.
