Summary: Great watch. Just got it from my girlfriend and love it. This had been on my wishlist for a couple of months as a must since the reviews I received and the freedom you have if wanted to replace the strip with custom ones from J.Crew, etc. Great feel. Love the color!
Summary: I ordered this after my friend and co-worker bought one of these (in a different color) and another Seiko 5 (one with metal strap) after extensive research on the best automatic watches. I liked the ones he ordered and this color combination seemed great (blue-on-blue). And then I waited for the watch to arrive just in time for my birthday.
Summary: I did the same thing as "C. Perry" shows in his picture and replaced the cheap strap with a nicely stitched leather band and deployment clasp. Over the past three weeks the watch has remained accurate enough to agree well with the atomic clock synced clocks at work, although I haven't tracked second by second accuracy as noted in other reviews.
Summary: I got this watch for my boyfriend because his other one broke. He loved it. I loved it. It's really pretty but manly and sharp looking at the same time. He loves GQ magazine and they were talking about blue-faced watches and I liked the cloth weave strap. We got it working in a couple minutes and it's been perfect ever since. Highly recommended!
Summary: This watch looks really nice. Watch face might be a little small for people with wide wrists. Accuracy wise, I've been wearing it for 2 weeks, only taking it off before going to bed, and it's been really accurate so far. I set it according to the time on my phone, and now they both still display the same time. Not the most accurate method for testing watch accuracy, I know, but still a good guideline on the consistency of this watch.
Summary: I was really excited to get this watch for such a cheap price. I juged the size of the watch by the pictures provided, but I was sadly mistaken when I opened the box. This watch would be awesome if it were bigger and heavier. I ended up given it to my gf...I also thought it was a bit shady in the cheap box it came in. I am not 100% sure this is a legit Seiko timepiece.
Summary: I like this watch a lot. For $20 at a watchmaker/jeweler you can have the scratchy nylon band replaced with a premium lambskin one. The face is very dark blue; if you put a black band on it, from a distance it looks like the face is black too. Less distinctive than i was hoping (my subconscious wanted it to look like a $3k blue-face Omega DeVille), but better contrast.
Summary: This is a great value for a dependable and hearty watch. It's very comfortable, dressy and casual at the same time, and very reasonably priced. I have been looking for a casual watch for many months, but did not want to spend a fortune. I like unique looks without being obnoxious, and this certainly fit the bill. After researching several other newer brands, I decided to go with an old reliable brand name to add to my watch collection.
Summary: I purchased this watch for my husband for three primary reasons: 1. It has a unique offset dial for people (my husband) who hate being stuck in the back of the hand or the wrist by bulky, cumbersome and tall dials; I'd never seen this option offered with any other watch before. 2. It is water/sweat resistant and has a canvas strap for easy drying if you do things outside (yard work or sports). 3.
Summary: I've owned a Baume & Mercier automatic and a Longines automatic watch for years. Since the other two watches set my wallet back quite a bit, and also since I've "acquired" a wife and two little ones since their purchase, I didn't want to break the bank this time around. So, after reading reviews for this little gem, I pulled the trigger and scored one for twenty-five bucks less off of eBay. This watch is simply beautiful!
