Summary: Great timekeeper. In one months time and clocked against WWV atomic timer in Colorado.( a world timekeeper standard) my watch lost almost a half of a minute.Not bad, 26 seconds lost in 30 days! Its a handsome mens watch, but the blue face is very dark and it could have been a wee bit lighter.
Summary: Christmas gift for my boyfriend. Color was significantly darker than the picture shown. Almost looks black. Also not a huge fan of the wiring noise the watch makes, but got used to it after a while. The watch is absolutely gorgeous. Very happy with this purchase. Didn't come with any warranty information which concerns me a little. But I've had a Seiko myself for a couple years now. Never had any problems with it. So hopefully, it won't be a big deal.
Summary: If you like a functional watch then this is the one. Easy to read time, day and date....and a Kinetic battery charge that keeps the watch running as long as it is worn. To date my watch is about 80% charged and the time is accurate to the second. Adjusting the watch band is not easy, there are arrow indicators on the back of the links showing directions of release. I found no information in the operating instructions, but figured out how to make the adjustment.
Summary: Another reviewer remarked that the character of a watch is determined by its complications, a sentiment I agree with after owning a Seiko Kinetic. This watch is very accurate: I notice a slight variance because I sync all my watches monthly to Fort Collins, but for the average guy this ought not be a major issue. The stainless steel case and bracelet give it a comfortable heft, and looks great as a casual, active, or dressy affair. An all-around great buy.
Summary: This is a very nice looking watch. The quality is very good and it's very precise. But the problem is that it is very easy to scratch. I did not find any analog of this model on the Seiko web site, so I assume it's old outdated and outsourced model - for real one that is a brand new model, you need to spend at least twice as much.
Summary: No issues to report thus far, Design is discreet, simple and relatively small compared to other watches. Due to the kinetic system, you do notice the weight at first, but it is negligible after a few days.
