Good price but ...

Summary: I'm used to titanium models costing more than steel models. Not so for this Sportura. It's a decent deal at the price (The stainless is $495 or so retail; however, it is really finely polished and not too heavy [feels better than a Rolex --- balance, bracelet] --- model 69, the other difference as I can tell is the crystal --- listed as mineral here but really AR sapphire and sturdy feeling).
Summary: What's to say. It's a Seiko. I have had nothing else for the last 40 years. This is my third. I would still be wearing the second if it had not met a violent death.This is a very attractive watch. It has all the functions I need and of course is wonderfully accurate. The Titanium really looks great.
Summary: This watch looks really great. I like the style, weight, functions, etc. But the non-standard battery is a deal breaker. I searched for an extended period of time and could not determine which kind of batteries are required. Or where to buy them. Or the price. Or who makes them. This, for all practical purposes, make this a "disposable" watch. Again, a deal breaker on a fantastic watch. Just my 2 cents.
Summary: This watch is unbelievably lightweight, yet has a very sturdy appearance. The size of the watch is great for almost any wrist size while still easily sliding under a shirt cuff. The functions are easy to use. It is nice to have an alarm function in a quality watch. The watch is versatile and can be worn in both business and casual settings.
Summary: My second Seiko titanium watch and I am just as happy with this model as I am with the other watch. Lightweight, easy to read and fits under long sleeve shirt cuffs just fine. I particularly like the alarm feature which is not too loud (think Timex triathalon) yet, effective at waking one from a short nap or as a reminder of something to do.
Summary: What I liked: - The all-titanium construction, case, back, and band, make this watch unbelievably light. I barely notice it. It weighs just under 2.5 oz. By contrast, my [[B001L1RZG4]], essentially the same watch in a stainless steel "military style" case, weighs almost three times as much. - The case is thin... thicker than the band but not by *that* much. - The face is large compared to the case/bezel. - The display is (mostly) clean and easy to read.
Summary: It's my first Seiko, but I have to say that I'm not dissapointed. Good quality at all and easy to use. The only complain it's about the bottom plate, that it does not look like titanium. Because metal allergies I have to use titanium, and my old one was all titanium, even the bottom plate. Anyway, so far I have no symptom of that allergies, so I leave the doubt.
Summary: I have an old scruffy Seiko twenty years old and it works well including the alarm. Unfortunately this one didn't it's a nice looking watch and light weight but not much good if it doesn't work!
