Summary: Amazon listed this watch as waterproof to 99 feet when I ordered it. It IS NOT waterproof, it's splash-proof. Shame. Other than that it's a great looking watch, keeps excellent time and I bought it for a song, so I'm happy anyhow. It's a lot of watch for not a lot of money.
Summary: I always have difficulty thinking of gifts to send my sons, who are in their 20s and were much easier to please when they were young children. This Seiko watch was well reviewed by other consumers, and I like the idea of using solar power whenever possible.
most elegent, stylish, manly watch every - picture is not accurate.

Summary: update post 11/3/2011: I called seiko and was told that there's nothing seiko can do, and that it's a known issue with their watches, that it either fit or doesn't. I asked if they would have half size link or a different clasp that offers more adjustability and the answer is no.
Summary: There is no question that when it has came down to watches, Seiko has been one of the strongest brands of watches for the past several years. They've made some great watches that have worked very well. This Seiko Solar Watch works very well through natural and solar light.
Summary: My husband previously owned a Seiko watch and he likes the new look and the fact that it is solar powered. However, it is difficult to adjust. The watch is a day behind and he has not been able to figure out how to adjust it. He needed a couple of links taken out and the jeweler did it for free.
Summary: I was looking for the right combination of price, bracelet style, day/date indicator, case size, and solar (eco) drive and found the SNE039. If Seiko also sold a solar field with similar characteristics I'd have purchased two watches.
Summary: It took me time to decide on a model with a sensible, practical design, among all the silly models crammed with dials and buttons to make the wearer look/feel very "macho", aside of the lousy taste combinations of colors, etc.
