Summary: First of all, the service I received from the vender was great. Very fast shipping as well. Now to the product, The movement of this watch was made in Malaysia not Japan as stated in the description. I do have a another Sieko automatic with a Japan movement I purchased off of Ebay and to be honest this new one actually keeps better time. Overall the watch looks great and keeps good time, so at this price is a great deal.
Summary: I purchased this watch for my father for his birthday. He likes simple yet attractive watches. This watch certainly is that. I was very impressed with the finish of the watch. One review stated that this watch was too shiny and all polished stainless. This is not true. This watch has a very nice brushed stainless finish with nice polished accents. The size of the watch is perfect for my father.
Summary: The purchase did not include an instruction booklet, For example how to change the date and time. Also it was not clearly stated that the day function would be in Spanish (unless the instruction booklet shows how to change this). These things should have been stated in the advertisement. Rather disappointing.
Summary: I own quite a few mechanical watches, including a Rolex. I like its simple and clean design. It tells good time. It is like any other automatic mechanical watch. You need to wear it and move it around to keep it running. It's well worth of the money. At this price you won't find any better watch than this one. And Seiko is a named brand with a long history of great reputation.
Summary: It doesn't look as sleek and stylish as in the photo. The watch looks cheaper because it has a glossy silver look and not a brushed metal look as it appears in the photo. Another negative is the automatic mechanism which will constantly require you to set the time if you're not wearing it every day. It stopped after 2 days I had it in the box. Am going to return it and already ordered SEIKO SGG707 instead. It's titanium and is lighter.
Summary: I bought a similar Seiko 5 watch for my father when I was in Dubai International Airport from the local gift shop. I paid 67 dollars for it and I was so impressed by the quality of the fit and finish that I wanted to buy one for myself whenever I would get the chance. Mind this, I wore it around town and I banged my wrist into doors or walls since I am a little clumsy. But my father's watch was a champ and didn't have any scratches on it.
