Summary: I bought this, and although it seems to be a great watch, I have some vision problems and will likely return it. The photos on the Amazon ad make it look like the watch has black hands and markings, when in fact they're a highly reflective, light colored gold. In bright light, this is fine, but in low or even medium light, it's often very difficult, at least for me, to read the time or any of the other markers. It's too bad because the watch is impressive.
Summary: This is my favorite watch because of its good looks. When using the timing functions, I find it a bit difficult to read the dials -- they're small, of course, but the face is very busy and reflects any bright lights. Buy it for the looks and the value, but get a stop watch if you are serious about timing events.
Summary: Exactly as advertised and shown. An attractive, accurate stopwatch at an excellent price. Just one negative (although a relatively important one). The combination of the "cut out" hour and minute hands with the vertical alignment of the stop watch hands and the word "Seiko" at 3 o'clock makes it hard to tell which are the hour and minute hands (and tell the time) unless you're in good light.
