Maybe your holiday destination is Florida, Spain, a Greek isle, or perhaps somewhere more expensive like Antigua. If you like beaches, sunshine and bar snacks from welcoming shacks, then we salute your relaxation goals. One thing worth considering is an all rounder wristwatch, not shoy or flash, just functional, clean and blending in with art deco architecture and vivid sundowner cocktails alike.
The latest Seiko 5 Midi offers a 38mm case width, steel case and bracelet, plus bright turquoise, orange or ice cream van white dials. If you’re British, you’ll know the shade of white we mean, Mr Whippy anyone?
Inside there’s the 4R series auto movement, you make do with a hardlex crystal and the chunky crown makes re-setting for overseas time zones a cinch. The Midi 5 Sports are on pre-order and at £300 we think it offers pretty decent value, although a sapphire crystal really should be standard at this money.
