MY Seiko automatic beige watch is nearly DEAD ON accurate!!!

Summary: I've had my Seiko automatic Beige watch for a little while now. Just time enough to note that after manually winding it by whirling it around (can't wind it with the knob), setting the time and date, and wearing it on my dominant arm I have found it to be exceeding my expectations since it is quite accurate each day which, in low priced mechanical watches, is unbelieveable.
Summary: liked the look.....but my sundial keeps better time...I am better at guessing the time than this "watch" is at keeping it. Lost 1-3 mins. per day. Save your money....I think its a "knock-off" ....real Seiko watches work better.
Summary: After searching for a quality watch with an acceptable case diameter, I am glad to have found this watch. I have a small wrist. Unfortunately, as the years go by, case diameters seem to get larger and larger, leaving customers such as myself with few options. This Seiko 5 is an excellent choice. I have owned it for about a year, and it has been accurate (within fifteen second per day) and comfortable.
Summary: This is my first mechanical watch that I have owned since I was a kid. Well built and plain, but still pleasing to the eye. Watch is a little small and the band is a little narrow, but it is after all, a unisex watch. Very large guys need to look for a slightly larger watch. It sports a well designed "flieger" style face and exhibition case back. The watch movement is not flashy, but rather workman like in appearance. The sand blasted finish on the bezel is nice.
Summary: Received this fine watch today, packed well, with the watch in working order. I had needed a good, reliable work/semi-dress watch for some time. And I hate having to pay someone to replace batteries every 6-8 months. The watch had to be water resistant and have a date/day option. So, after reviewing 20+ pages of Sales watches, I found one. With a brand name like Seiko on it, I'm sure it'll last me till my son inherits it.
Summary: I have had this wrist watch for less than 2 years and it stopped working. I contacted the vendor and received no response. I am both disappointed in the vendor and the product. I expect more from a Seiko.......or is it.
Have been wearing this for over a year. Great Watch

Summary: This is a good looking watch. Keeps time accurately (for a auto winding watch). Loses a few seconds a day. That is to be expected. The dial is unique looking. I get a lot of complements on it. The band is canvas and cleans up quickly at the kitchen sink. Just don't wait until it is completely grubby before cleaning. I take some dish sope and a old tooth brush to it every couple of weeks.
Summary: I received mine early in February. It would stop two or three times a day despite 'exercising' it. Sent it back to the service center and although it will still go to sleep during normal wearing, it will stay awake if I 'exercise' it by doing forceful arm movements until it is fully wound (I can hear the winding mechanism at work). I've had Seiko self winding watches since the early '60s when I was a soldier in the Far East. This behavior is not typical of the breed.
