Hi Seiko sifus!
I'm looking to invest into my first ever automatic watch with around budget of <1k so i was looking at some Seiko 5s.
I was wondering if you guys knew where i could try a wide range of watches so i could get an idea of sizing and such.

what is your wrist circumference? typical adult asians like us have a wrist size between 6-inch to 7-inch. usually 40/41mm watchess is a good middle ground.

common seiko 5 usually runs at 38mm but for those SRP series (or any 5 that runs 4r movement) they start from 42mm upwards.

just browse thru watchsleuth to get an idea of models and stlyes of seiko you liked and then only go search actual watches at shops.

for starters and you love diving, sea or land, you can try seiko skx 007 or skx 009. this are powered by 7s26 movement. if you are ocd about accuracy, this is not for you. or you can take a look at snzh 53,55 and 57, these are popular among modders to look like 55 fathoms. you can view online at skywatches.com.sg or creationwatches.com

Snzg takde chapter ring. It is called inner bezel.
Nope i will leave the bezel as it is because it lumes nicely in the dark.
I am still undecided on the dial.

Do slowly one by one. What you have at the end is a unique individual piece crafted to your own preference. U dont get such customisation for a mere rm1k with any other brands. Not just cost, in fact no such service/parts of any other brand sub-1k watch.

Maybe a certain germanic brand can do customisation to a certain extent, but u standby minimum 5-10k lah
