Summary: watch is bullet proof, never leaks, the illumination is great. don't get the rubber band it'll eventually split and fall apart. the metal is much better. I had to upgrade to the metal eventually and it cost me a lot more overall... watch however has one draw back and it runs fast.. it'll get 5 minutes fast within a month. annoying but not a deal breaker. it's heavy and you can probably knock someone unconscious with it.
Summary: After months of saving, I finally decided to purchase a Seiko Black monster watch. Imagine my surprise when what I received from AMAZON of all places was a watch that was not meant to be sold in the USA. I still like the watch, but wish that the listing spelled out a little better that the watch I would be receiving was not sold through 'official' Seiko channels.
Summary: this is a great mid sized watch! for the price i paid, i got quite a bit of quality as well. i'm fairly rough on my watches and have found that divers tend to take my abuse well and keep on working. for a budget minded person that wants quality you cant go wrong with this watch. it has a well known seiko momevent in it, ( can't think of it at the current moment) also this watch has been in the shower, pool, hot tub and everywhere else with me and still works fine.

Summary: What can I say? It's a great watch! The model I purchased has the steel band not the polyurethane strap that is pictured here for some reason. And I'm a verified buyer. I wrote a review on the orange model that you can read by checking my reviews. The black model is equally accurate, high quality finish, durable and is my evening choice while orange is my day to day tardiness preventer. Pick a color and GET one!
Summary: Sieko's reputation speaks for itself, so just let me say this watch is everything I had hoped for. To me the most impressive this about this watch is when you are not wearing it. After a day, day and a half of sitting, it is still accurate to the second. Just what I was looking for in a dive/sport watch. The price from Amazon is awesome and all the features are exactly as described. Couldn't be more pleased with the watch.
Summary: I had not worn a watch in years--they seemed uncomfortable and bulky; but recently my interest in watches suddenly perked up. I did a bunch of research, looked at pictures, and most of all--kept my budget in mind. The Seiko Black Monster Automatic Dive Watch kept showing up on peoples' lists of great watches, and the price was excellent. Ordered this from Amazon and have not removed it from my wrist since! I think it is a handsome watch, rugged but not overly built.
