At the Amazon price, this watch is a howling deal. Frankly, if Seiko had charged $1,000 for this watch I would not have thought it was overpriced. This is a large (but not overlarge) diver’s style watch that has everything I wanted. Firstly, it is solar-powered, so if you do not wear it for awhile so long as it is left in a lighted area it will keep its charge, unlike kinetic watches. Secondly, this watch is simply gorgeous. The blue and black bezel, the black face, and the phosphorescent hands and hour markings make for a beautiful, subtle, and subdued presentation. So long as you are not looking for a very thin watch, this one leaves little or nothing to be desired. I will say that this watch is kind of thick for wearing long sleeved suitcoat shirts (but I do it anyway!).
Seiko lavishly applied the phosphorescent coating to the hands and hour dots such that at night this watch is very easy to read.
The stopwatch function is easy to figure out and easy to use. It is easy enough to use, in fact, that many users will actually use it. Nice. Remember that the small dial to the left is actually the second hand. The sweep hand is used for the stopwatch function so when not in use it does not move and will be at the 12 o’clock position. A lot of new owners of this watch initially think that the watch is not operating because this sweep hand is not moving. The small dial to the right gives the hour in 24 hour format. This is handy, by the way, for when you set the time on the watch because it tells you whether, for example, it is 7am or 7pm. This way when you set it the date will change correctly.
The only watch I own that I like better than this one is my Omega, which cost just about ten times as much. This Seiko is a fabulous deal. Highly recommended without reservation.
