$100 Seiko 5: The Best Nautilus Alternative vs $100,000 Patek Watch

In today’s video I return to a format I have not covered on the channel for many years. In this comparative review I look at the Seiko 5 Ref. SNKK52 (AKA the "Seikonaut"), which cost me just over $100 and compare it to a watch that inspired it - the $100,000 Patek Philippe Nautilus 57111/R001. Why is this Seiko the best entry level alternative compared to the millions of homage, counterfeit, and luxury watches that attempt to mimic the Nautilus? Why is the Nautilus so expensive and highly desired? What is the difference between these watches other than their dramatically different price points? Join me for answers to these questions in this in-depth exploration of uber luxury verses super affordable.
