Poor time keeper, but durable.

Professor Farnsworth "Dan", amazon.com

  • 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.

Doesn't keep time

  • Summary: I had a crystal SEIKO before this one that kept time to the second. This watch gained about a minute a week. Love its durability and looks, but worthless. Gave mine away.

It Won't Last

  • Summary: The band broke after 1 year. The multifunction set stem broke after 2 years. Pretty darn poor for a $300 watch.

Don't drop it!

D. Mulcare, amazon.com
15 September 2009
  • Summary: Unfortunately, this watch stopped working when I dropped it about 4 feet onto asphalt pavement. I liked the easy readability and utility of the rotating bezel. It kept decent time; nothing great. The failure after such a trivial knock would make me wary of relying on it.

Wanted to like it but runs way too fast.

Christopher Gonzales "Gonzo Nerd", amazon.com
8 June 2009
  • Summary: I really wanted to like this watch. My father has one that he has had for 35 years and 3 tours in Vietnam. So my expectations were for a simple but quality item. Unfortunately it runs fast, real fast. It gains about 10 minutes ever five days.

Wasn't Seiko Known for Accurate Time Keeping?

David, amazon.com
1 June 2009
  • Summary: I purchased this Seiko impressed by Seiko's reputation for smart style, rugged design and accurate time keeping. Well, two of the three proved true but keeping accurate time, what I consider the keystone function of any watch, is where this time piece fails.
