Summary: Love the idea of no batteries...self winding. I had my jeweler size the band and she remarked on what a nice watch this is. If you do not wear the watch often, you will need to reset the time when you put it on.
Summary: I love this petite watch. It is beautiful. I would have rated it higher if I didn't have to purchase a winder to keep it ticking when I don't wear it for about 12 hours or so. Otherwise, I like that it is self-winding as long as I'm wearing it. I got tired of having to run out to get a battery in my watch to keep time...
Summary: I wanted an automatic watch so that I would not have to replace batteries year after year. This watch is accurate and easy to set. It has been keeping very good time since I first put it on, and I'm very pleased with my purchase.
Summary: I was looking for a smart-looking watch for work and I'm very happy with my choice of this Seiko. It has just the right size face, and some heft- without feeling heavy. I have only had it for a day so I cannot comment on it's accuracy, but it looks so nice that it's secondary to me!
Summary: this watch is all that is was stated to be. I just love it. Never have to change a battery or wind it up. It has run dependable and keeps excellant time. The date feature is nice as I often lose track of the date when I go to write a check. It looks nice on my arm and I have received many compliments on it. It takes a beating when I am gardening and it gets dirty and I just wash it off without regard to harming it. I would recommend it to anyone.
Summary: I was TIRED of buying batteries! I wanted a self winding (kenetic) watch with a traditional face and second hand. I got that and more with the Seiko. It keeps accurate time and has a smooth mechanism for the hands (no herky-jerky movement).
Summary: No battery, no fuss, no bother. Battery watches do not work on me, and this watch winds with wrist motion. It's great. It does lose a minute here and there, but overall, it's really good and comfortable.
Summary: I prefer automatic watches to quartz. I prefer the smooth sweep of the second hand to any quartz "tick" anyday. If my Wife would just keep the watch on it has kept excellent time when compared to an "atomic LCD".
