How Much Does a Seiko Brightz Cost?

Take a look at some of the best-selling Seiko Brightz models that Seikoholics hunt for in Seiko shops all around the globe.  

Seiko Brightz SDGM0001

First up, we have the Seiko Brightz SDGM0001, which is one of the brand’s stunning dress watches and costs around $699 USD. From afar, it might look like an ordinary watch, but an in-depth look at it reveals its unique and subtly understated features. Its sharp white dial has a sunburst pattern that radiates from the center out towards the sturdy titanium case. The luminous hour markers and angled hands are bold enough to be clearly seen in both broad daylight and during the night. Of course, the classic Seiko logo can also be found engraved on the white. 

A stunning design utilized in the Seiko Brightz SDGM0001 is the transition finish on the bracelet that you will only see up close. You simply cannot overlook the smooth, consistently polished finish on this watch, from the case to the bracelet. In addition, its in-house 6R15C caliber automatic movement is high-performing and guarantees an accurate keeping of time. 

Seiko Brightz Mechanical Chronograph SDGZ001 

Another fun model from this collection is the Seiko Brightz Mechanical Chronograph SDGZ001, which costs around $1,342 USD when purchased brand-new. This piece is a recent introduction, and has only sold in Japan for a few years. Unlike most of the other models in the Seiko Brightz collection, which have cases made from titanium, the Seiko Brightz SDGZ001 uses a different material for its case, stainless steel. It is more scratch-resistant and also anti-reflective, since it comes with a layer of super clear anti-reflective coating.

This watch also comes in an in-house 8R28 caliber movement that features a column wheel and vertical clutch, representative of traditional Seiko movements. The watch’s smooth silver dial and bezel also serve to add more sophistication to the Seiko Brightz SDGZ001’s overall look, making it the perfect accessory for a nice dinner party.

Seiko Brightz Solar Radio SAGZ105 is another men’s watch from Seiko that is manufactured with a quartz movement along with a 7B27 caliber movement.

In addition, the Seiko Brightz SAGZ105 is also solar-powered, so it can be conveniently charged using any light source and you don’t have to worry about its battery or winding movement. 

This timepiece is made out of a hardy stainless steel case that can withstand scratches and impacts, and a black leather crocodile band that fits comfortably around the wrist. Its screw-down crown is protected by a screwing mechanism, which greatly improves the watch’s water resistance. The Seiko Brightz SAGZ105 retails at only $1,019 USD.

Seiko Brightz Electric Wave Solar Radio Time Signal SAGA229

The Brightz SAGA229 also provides you with a handy dual time zone of your choice and a perpetual calendar that will automatically show you the day, date, month, and even the leap years up to 2100. Its solar-powered feature further adds to the convenience of this timekeeper.

Seiko Brightz's History and Design Details

Since 1881, Seiko has been an expert in manufacturing durable watches across the globe. Seiko’s story started with Kintaro Hattori, a 22-year-old entrepreneur, who had been a skillful watch and clock repair and salesman in Tokyo.

In 1913, the first-ever Japan-made wristwatch by Seiko was produced and marked a breakthrough in the company. It was named The Laurel, and was a representation of Hattori’s exhibited skills and craftsmanship.

The mind behind the innovative Seiko Brightz collection is Chihiro Funamoto, a Seiko watch designer who is also the creative mind behind the designs of the Ananta, Phoenix, and SUS collections. His vision, that drove the designs of Seiko Brightz, was to create legible and alluring watches that every wearer would love. 

Funamoto revealed that, in coming up with the design for the Seiko Brightz, he paid a great deal of attention to the three-dimensional visual effect produced by the interplay of light and shadows. He aimed to create a watch whose structure would make use of a variety of light expressions and shadows to provide a reflecting beauty in the timepiece. In doing so, Funamoto paid particular attention to the colors used in the Seiko Brightz’s designs. For instance, some Seiko Brightz timepieces adopt bold dark and ice blue colors, which allows the watch to depict a fine harmony between its luminous markers and deep-colored dials.
