Best Seiko Watches With Sapphire Crystal

Seiko watches have a long history of superior watchmaking. It began in 1881 with a young entrepreneur named Kintaro Hattori who opened a watch sales and repair shop in the heart of Tokyo. Today, Seiko watches have evolved to include both luxury and affordable watch brands like Presage, Coutura, and Seiko 5 Sports Watches. The price ranges vary, but the Seiko quality is consistent.

Our Top Picks

Seiko uses sapphire or their patented Hardex mineral crystal for dial covers on all its watches. Sapphire is second only to diamond as the strongest element on the Mohs’ scale. Through technology, the sapphire is ground into a fine powder to mold a dial cover that is tough, scratch-resistant, and shatterproof. You’ll pay more for any watch with a sapphire crystal dial cover, but Seiko brands are unparalleled for features, options, and prices. Find the perfect Seiko for you from our collection of the best Seiko watches with sapphire crystal.

Best Seikos with Sapphire Crystal
