The Seiko Cocktail Time is, in our estimation, the best value dress watch you can get for under $1000 dollars. Why? It’s the watch to own if you want to be a watch aficionado but don’t want to spend outrage amounts of money to get there. The fit and finish on Seiko watches in general is something that the watch enthusiast community has long known and respected. Combine that with the silver sunburst dial and a 6515 automatic movement, and you have a winner.
In addition to being nice to look at, the Cocktail Time has competitive specs that ensure you’re getting value for your money. It features a 40 mm diameter face, steel case, date function, Seiko’s Hardlex propriety crystal, and a display case back so you can gaze longingly at the automatic movement.
Seriously, if you’re looking for a dress watch that will be at home any time you are wearing a suit, this is the one to get.
