Do not buy from Jomashop
5 June 2011
Summary: The watch arrived defective with a crown that would not screw back into place. I was unable to contact Seiko directly to fix the problem because the warrantee was not stamped by an authorised dealer. On contacting Jomashop they told me to take it to a local watchmaker. I refused as I didn't want to void the warrantee nor have a watch that was broken brand new. Eventually they agreed to take to watch back, at my cost for postage, but I am yet to receive a refund.
Horrible Experience!!! BEWARE when buying from MR Watch!

Summary: I purchased a watch from Mr Watch Company on Feb 16, 2010. 5 weeks later, the watch stopped working. Now mind you, I didn't wear the watch everyday and I work in an office so there was not any heavy wear and tear as if I worked in construction or heavy labor. I contacted Mr Watch to let them know the watch was defective and stopped working.
Summary: This watch was a complete waste of money. It worked for a short period of time and quit. I sent it in for service and it did the same thing about a week later. I gave up. Don't waste your money.
Summary: This will be a great dive watch... while it lasts. After a year the band broke, this was no big deal and was expected being plastic and wearing it everyday (replacement was around $15 here at amazon). The problem was around 2 years later when the watch din't hold a charge, if you shaked the watch it would start to run but stop after a few seconds.
Summary: So like you (if you're reading this review), I can't afford a Rolex. I had always heard that Seiko had a good name and I thought this watch looked great! An automatic self winding watch! Now I could tell myself I was getting closer to that Rolex. Well not only is the not a Rolex its not even a Timex. It has been losing more and more time over the past two years and today just completely stopped working altogether!
Summary: I purchased this watch Jan 06. It was first returned for repair in Jun 07. Second time Nov 08. Third time Dec 08. It stops, and then when it does run, it runs at an accelerated pace. I have a similar watch purchased approximately thirty year ago that has been repaired once, the reason I bought a new one, and once repaired runs fine.
Summary: I ordered this watch to replace my old Seiko Diver which gave over twenty years of great service. I was somewhat concerned when I noted "Malaysia" stamped on the back but decided to keep it based on my experience with Seiko products. The watch that I received is a dog. It loses or gains ten to fifteen minutes a day...one day it gained six hours. I have never returned an item from Amazon before but this one is shipping back Monday.
Summary: This watch arrived after about 60 days, owing to the fact that I live/ work in Afghanistan, as an aid worker. No fault of ewatches here - they delivered fine to my colleague in the US. I was very disappointed to see this watch is made in Malaysia - this is clear in the reviews, but not on Amazons site, which I think is deceptive. But for the low price, I guess it is not surprising and I would accept this better if the watch worked. It doesnt.
