Summary: Not big enough for a clock, too big and heavy for a watch; Paul Bunyan would have liked it ... keeps good time but too expensive for a jogging weight. I have an older Seiko automatic that is thinner-- you can put your arm through a jacket/shirt sleeve without difficulty; why did they forget thin matters?
Summary: I still can't believe that Seiko can manufacture a watch of this quality at this price. I bought this watch to keep me company while my Rolex is out for repairs. I have to say, I'm constantly impressed by it. I received it from Amazon in the original box with tags and protective films in place. The accuracy is alright (~-5 sec/day), but the precision is amazing. It's always 5 sec.
Summary: Purchased this watch when my old quartz one finally died. Took some effort initially to shorten the band for my wrist, but afterwards it fit comfortably and snugly. Despite the water resistance rating, I did manage to accidentally do a few laps in the pool with it still on and it's just fine. I did notice some scratches on the edge just a few days after getting it, which seemed kind of odd, being that I don't really recall being in any situation that would cause them.
Summary: First a warning, then the watch review. For the fourth time now, Amazon has sent me a used (or returned) watch. See my review of the casio PAW1300-1V. I know, I swore I would never buy another watch from Amazon after this happened three times in a row - but this Seiko was sold by an Amazon partner and "Fulfilled by Amazon". So I thought I would take a risk to save thirty bucks over other online dealers.
Summary: Nice watch. It looks great, keeps time, and winds itself. The only problems are if you don't wear it for more than a day, it needs reset because it looses it's charge and it is not even lightly shockproof. The one I bought is a replacement for my last one which I dropped and it broke something inside.

Summary: I own the popular Citizen Eco-Drive (#BL5180-57L). While I really like the watch for its appearance and convenient size, it has a complex dial, and an even complex system to navigate. Moving into dual-time, or alarm mode is so onerous that I simply stopped using all the features. The dial is dark blue that almost looks black at some angles. I wanted a watch that was quite the opposite - white with a simple Day-date dial face.
