The Two Watch Collection: The Seiko 5 And The Casio G-Shock 'Tough Solar'
Not too terribly long ago, we did a story on a watch you can grab on any given day for, probably, under a hundred bucks, that over-delivers so spectacularly it's become as iconic, in its own way, as any Royal Oak, Submariner, or Speedmaster. That watch is the Seiko 5, which has been around in one form or another since 1963. The Seiko 5's characteristics have made it the benchmark for an affordable, durable wristwatch that sure, could be considered entry level, but could also easily be the only watch you'd ever need. Today we're inaugurating a new column: The Two Watch Collection, and we can't think of a better way to start than pairing the Seiko 5 with another truly iconic and historically important timepiece: the inimitable, unbeatable, and virtually indestructible Casio G-Shock.
