What is Stitch Fix?

Stitch Fix calls itself “your online personal stylist” for good reason. Sign up and take the style quiz, and Stitch Fix selects items from its huge inventory, that it thinks you’ll like.

These new watches are all about the classic Seiko design elements that fans of the brand appreciate, with some modern features like 100-meter water resistance that bring it into this year.
Seiko SNXS has officially returned

Seiko made history in 1963 when they introduced the Sportsmatic 5, Japan's first automatic day-date. The Seiko 5 quickly shot up in popularity as it was crafted with a stainless steel case and bracelet, had water and shock resistance, and featured tons of practical functions while still being affordable. It debuted during the 1964 Tokyo Olympics, meaning it was put on the map globally (pun intended), and by 1966, Seiko 5 exports surpassed the collective output of automatic watches from Switzerland.

These are the most high-end G-SHOCK watches…yes, you read that right
G-Shock offers high-end watches
G-SHOCK MRG-BF1000R-1A 'Frogman' In Titanium on model

Two things can certainly co-exist together without there being any friction: toughness and luxury, ruggedness and refinement. While G-Shock has never been thought of as a brand that dominates the highest echelons of haute horlogerie, especially with Rolex and Tudor out there, that doesn't mean they don't have their own high-end watches.

G-Shock began as Casio's vision for a durable watch after engineer Kikuo Ibe developed the first G-Shock in 1983. Apparently, he felt like traditional watches were too fragile, and he had a point, considering what the brand has come up with thus far. Over the years, G-Shock watches evolved and started incorporating advanced features like shock resistance, water resistance, and an array of sensors.
