Summary: I must admit I was sceptical about the blurb about this watch, however a friend of mine showed me his, and I was impressed enough to buy one. Although, the darker more manly colour. I absolutely love it. Its tough good looking and does everything it says in the blurb. I have had it about a month now and cannot find fault. Full charge in first week, it turned up showing one months charge. If you are man enough buy it. Oh! And you can do the dishes with it lol.
Summary: Likes "Tool" look of the watch Black color Kinetic design which allows it to be worn only occasionally but still keep time without having to manually wind it and reset the time Dislikes Stem too lose. I was working in the yard, running a pipe under cement, using water under high pressure to form the passage for the pipe, when I found the stem had unwound to the pulled-out position. Thankfully the seals kept any water from getting in.
Summary: If you find some live shots on the web, you can get a very good idea of how it looks- extremely cool black finish, more to the rugged side being somewhat blocky and serious in design, yet it wears very comfortably. The first thing you notice out of the box is how heavy this thing is... which I like! Heavy duty construction is apparent to include the band- the impression is that this is a very tough watch... we will see.
Summary: Own 3 other Seiko divers, have long admired this model, took the plunge. Had a 1st generation Seiko kinetic, the one with capacitor issues. This model has a much deeper power reserve, which is good. But after about a year of wearing automatic divers, and using Casio/Citizen solar watches, I expected to be able to rapidly reach a full charge. If you read up on this Kinetic movement, it almost NEVER reaches a full charge. Very few people are able to achieve this.
Summary: This watch will NOT disappoint. It is accurate and worry free. In the swimming pool it is not affected at all by the water. On the golf course it doesn't miss a beat. Once the watch reaches its six month wound limit you can set it down and pick it up months later . . . the time will be dead on. I have a mechanical Seiko chronograph I bought in the early 70's. It gives great service and I trust the brand anyway, but this watch is . . . . fabulous.
Summary: The Seiko SKA427P1 is a mid range diver's watch driven by Seiko's kinetic power movement. This is an ideal system for powering a diver's watch : it gives you all the advantages of a mechanical automatic system along with the associated accuracy of a electronic quartz movement (generally, the down side of any battery powered diver's watch is that it can prove expensive having the water resistant seals renewed every time you have to change the battery.
Summary: This might be a biased review because i already own a seiko watch but-this watch is really amazing !!!.Just checked this morning and internet time is spot on to the second.It can be used as a sporty, casual or dress watch-looks stunning.This is a real mans watch large and sits proud on the wrist-buy it you won't be disappointed.
