Summary: It ran too fast, it gained 7-8 minutes per hour! Unacceptable. I had a Tissot Seastar Automatic and it only gained a minute in 5 days. Was not expecting this from Seiko. I really liked the simple construction and design, I could have it's time adjusted in a jewelry store but wouldn't want to pay more when it should be working properly in first place. Not worth the time. I have to return in.
Summary: Ive had this watch two full years now. It keeps great time. Plus or minus about a second a day. It still looks great and makes me feel like a million bucks wearing it. I wear it every day. Not the most expensive. Not for extreme conditions. Though I did go mountain climbing with it once. Simple, light weight, elegant, and a great time keeper. Cheers!
Summary: I have had this watch for about 5 months now and the accuracy, for an automatic, is fantastic. Less than 10 seconds per week fast. I am a watch lover, and collector, and this watch is one of the best values out there. Attractive, dependable, tough, and no battery to worry about. The Seiko 5 has a long history and many fans and this watch does not disappoint. I also like how versatile it is.
Summary: It's a good watch. I seriously question that this is actually a gray-market item as it didn't come with a manual, just a warranty card. I blame that more on Seiko, they don't sell all their models everywhere, so I half expected it when I got it. It's just like the other SNK809K watches, but with a metal band. It's easily user adjustable, it's not a pin and collar band, all you'll need is a push-pin or a paperclip.
Summary: It arrived very quickly and in perfect conditions. After 1 month using it, all I can say is positive. The only point is that if you stop wearing it for less than the specified 36 hours, it may stop earlier, depending on the amount of energy stored.
Summary: J'apprécie l'élégance et la précision de cette excellente montre automatique. Livraison rapide malgré le chemin à parcourir (Singapour, Canton , Paris, Luxembourg). Dommage que le mode d'emploi minimaliste fourni ne corresponde pas au modèle acheté et n'aborde pas la façon dont le bracelet métallique peut être raccourci.
