great value for your money

omerikog2012, Ebay

  • Summary: lots of reviews online for Seiko's diver's. the ratings and this review is based on what you get for your money. I also tried to avoid copying other reviews online. appearance the watch looks great, not too big or heavy although he's pretty solid. I also bought a bracelet and can't decide how the watch looks better- bracelet or strap? either way it's nice to have the option to change it in no time. big points for versatility.

Strapped In Automation

Michael Kerner "Michael Kerner", amazon.com
17 January 2012
  • Summary: There is no question that Seiko has really made some of the most innovative watches of all time. That has shown with their Solar-powered watches, as well as their automatic watches as well. Their Seiko Men's Automatic is definitely a clever designed watch that is easy to strap on, has very bright illumination that glows in the dark briskly, that can even compete with brands like Invicta and Citizen, easy to setup calendar settings for the day and date, with a rotating...

Good-looking, rugged watch

  • Summary: I looked at a lot of dive watches after my Victorinox gave up the ghost. It wasn't a dive watch, but I'd had a cheapo diver years ago and used the timer bezel all the time. So I tried tons of watches on. I got a good idea that way of the size I was looking for, and recommend going to any place that has a variety of watches, trying them on and noting the model numbers, then coming back here where the specs are laid out for you to note and then use in your online search.

So great I purchased two!

  • Summary: I purchased this watch for my Son and Husband for Christmas. They both love the watch! They say it is very comfortable to wear, and easy to read. They love the illuminated dial, and can't wait to go diving with it! My Son collects watches, so he is very picky. He wanted this watch, so that says a lot. The watches were purchased separately, but they both arrived in a very timely manner. I would Highly recommend this seller and product.

Love it!

  • Summary: I ordered this as a gift for my husband. I'd never ordered a used item online except for books. The seller sent a watch that looked brand new and the packaging was perfect. My husband couldn't believe it was used! I love this watch and my husband had the same one for over 10 years, never taking it off except to replace the band. He owns a lawn/landscape company is very hard on a watch. I knew I'd be thrilled with the product but the condition was awesome.

Good watch, wish it had lasted longer!

  • Summary: I bought this watch for my husband in 2006 for 155 plus shipping. In March 2011 (almost exactly 5 years later), it died. It had been sluggish for a while, and I thought it was because he wasn't moving around as much as he used to. But, then it quit working altogether. In that time, he had to replace the band once, but he LOVED this watch. He is really picky about watches, and I wish it had lasted longer.

Best buy in it's class~!

  • Summary: Great looking watch, not too big or thickness for my small wrist(6?), wears very comfortably on wrist without ever feeling distracted by it(except when purposely stares to admire its beauty). Reliable Automatic Japan movement, solid beautiful two tone polish(front brushed, side shine polish), glows incredibly bright in the dark. Wear it the way this watch is made to be worn and you will appreciate it.

Poor time keeper, but durable.

Professor Farnsworth "Dan", amazon.com
27 November 2011
  • Summary: I purchased a SKX173 about six years ago and was initially impressed by the weight and build quality of the watch. Over the last couple years, I have grown tired of its inability to keep accurate time. The watch is consistently about 10 minutes fast after about a week of operation. I am looking for a new watch this holiday and would advise others this is not a good watch and to look elsewhere for another make or model.

Overall very good!!!

  • Summary: Hmmm... Well, I have wanted this very traditional diver for a very long time. I am a little disappointed with the strap though. It has a cheap flimsy feel to it. I guess I expected better since the SKX173 costs more than the SKX007. I am however extremely pleased with the accuracy compared to my SKX007. So far it has been "quartz" accurate right on the money!

Pictures do not do justice...

  • Summary: I looked at Omega, Heuer, watches that cost 10 times as much. I don't like flash, this watch is anything but. It has an honest, workmanlike look and feel, that makes it very attractive. Agree with many of the fine reviews on this watch, it is a mechanical watch, there is no battery and chip running this thing, and for an automatic movement, it's very accurate, 2 weeks in, it's on the money, I wear it all the time, I've put a black 4 ring 22mm Zulu band and it looks sick.
