5.0 out of 5 stars The Landshark 21 Jun 2012
By Purple Ferret VINE VOICE
The Seiko SKZ211, along with it's stablemates the SKZ207 and SKZ209, form a series of affordable but well made automatic watches, known to collectors as "the Landsharks". The difference between the models is purely the colour of the face and hands. This model has the smart black face with matching bezel, and for some reason is the only one in the line up with yellow accents on the hands.

The movement is the Seiko 7S36 23 jewel movement (an upgrade from the 7S26 21 jewel movement used in many similar Seiko automatic divers' watches), and being Seiko is generally considered to be a well made, reliable movement, accurate to around 15-30 seconds a day, which should give years of service with a minimum of maintenance.

The design of the watch makes it a bit of a hybrid really. Clearly the layout, large lumibrite markings, uni directional bezel and WR rating to 200m suggest a diving heritage. The watch does not however bear the usual Seiko classification of "Divers 200M" on the face. Opinion on the reason for this seems divided, the best explanation I have been able to find is that the markings on the bezel are insufficiently precise to facilitate it's use for measuring dive times.

One of the most notable features of this watch is the rotating inner bezel with the "sun compass" markings. Operation is by the central guarded crown at the 9 o'clock position, which annoyingly does not lock, meaning that the inner bezel will always end up being moved inadvertently whilst wearing the watch. This, for me, is the only annoying feature of an otherwise excellent watch. The feature's inclusion clearly suggests an intended market of outdoor loving types, although how practical use of the "sun compass" feature is (especially in the UK) is arguable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Watch 30 Aug 2008
I have had this watch for almost a year now and it has been a good timekeeper, although,like all automatic watches, it needs to be checked with a reliable time source weekly.If it is not worn for two or three days, it will stop & will need to be reset & restarted, which is not a problem, just follow the instructions. It looks very good, and there have been no problems so far.It is quite a big and heavy watch ,which I like.It has been worn almost every day and still looks as good as new.A quick wipe over with a micro-fibre cloth is all that has been required to keep it clean.

Good watch when not broken down, seller (CWatches) are in Asia and couldn't care less once you've paid your money.
Make sure that you only buy it from a seller in Briton.

5.0 out of 5 stars Seiko 5 Automatic 3 Dec 2011
Fabulous watch, clear yellow hands against black background, Luminous hands light up at night and it has the movement of a true automatic watch unlike kinetic which has battery as well. Feels nice and weighty on the wrist...why pay thousands for top brand automatic when you can have one of these!

5.0 out of 5 stars Look And Feel of a $600.00+ Timepiece 26 Aug 2007
By Dos Ojos - Published on Amazon.com
This watch is also known as the Seiko Gadget, Seiko Landshark, Atlas, etc. It's not as eye-catching as the famed Seiko Black Monster Divers Watch but I think it's more elegant looking and has a better steel bracelet.

I bought it for it's looks, not because it's a divers watch. It's rated at 200m; that's pretty deep; not many of us are ever going down that far even with scuba equipment.

There are many Rolex Submariner look-alike watches out there; Seiko makes one too. This is not one of them. It has some arabic numbers instead of markers and the lume is very good in the dark. The black face with the contrasting yellow hands looks real sharp. The calendar display is large enough to be seen without the usually useless cyclops magnifier found on many diver watches (including the Rolex). It has the look of rugged precision equipment; like an old Nikon 35mm camera or a Leatherman tool knife.

The real surprise is the stainless steel bracelet. It is beautifully machined with brushed satin and polished sections; solid links held together with push-pins. It attaches to the watch head with no gaps as if it were cast in place. It is far more attractive, expensive looking and comfortable than the bracelet on any other Seiko diver. Indeed, many Seiko divers have bracelets with cheap, hollow folded links that pull your arm hairs. Though it's a heavy watch, the bracelet holds the watch comfortably on the wrist without pulling hairs! I would never replace this bracelet with a leather or rubber strap. I would even say this bracelet looks better than that of the Rolex Submariner!

The bezel rotates smoothly in one direction with multiple clicks yet it's firm enough that it won't be shifted accidentally. The screw-down stem at 4 should be a little bigger to make it easier to change the time; in fact, it should have been the size of the compass stem at 9. The compass stem is pretty to look at but no one's going to use the compass fuction; it takes too long. The case itself is built like a vault. The stainless steel has a satin finish in some sections, brushed in others and mirror polish in the back. A real quality job.

I haven't owned this watch long enough to guage the accuracy of the automatic movement. I have other Seikos with the same movement and they all run fast at first then settle down. I've taken the back off other Seikos and there's a little lever to adjust the accuracy to about 10 seconds per day. Not as accurate as even a cheap quartz watch, but how much accuracy do you really need? There's a certain charm to an all mechanical timepiece that quartz watches just don't have. I've had other Seikos with this automatic movement for 3 years; they cannot be wound by the stem and they aren't polished and lovely to look at, but they're rugged and reliable. Seiko deserves credit for making affordable automatic watches.

This is one of the few divers watches that's elegant looking enough to be worn as a dress watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Seiko 5 Atlas Diver, Great Watch 25 Oct 2007
By Home Improvement Guy - Published on Amazon.com
Needed to pick up a new watch after my last Seiko died after 4 years of use. That watch was a basic Chrono still selling here and other places for around $120, and I must say that the Atlas is much nicer and has better overall build and feel. Easily justifies the $75 more I paid for it.

The movement is also very smooth, compared to the previous Chrono which had the tick, tick movement.

The band is super nice, as well as the locking clasp. Both are sturdy and safe. I was also able to remove links myself with a few tools at home and was wearing it the same day I got it. Google watch link removal.

Looks very nice, some reviewers have said it is "big" and it is, however, I'm thin and have smaller wrists and it still fits well and is comfortable. (I am 6'1" 170 lbs.)

I did put a small scratch in the crystal already, so I don't think it's as hard as some.

The compass is kind of silly. Watch me say that and then get lost in the woods not knowing how to use it.

Overall, for the guy looking to pay a decent price for a solid, quality, functional watch, I think this is a great buy. Can work for business or just kicking around, and appears to be a tough watch.

2.0 out of 5 stars A great idea, but poorly executed. 13 July 2011
By Brad - Published on Amazon.com
There are a couple of things I do quite like about this watch. The firm uni-directional bezel ring that is never accidentally turned. Also, the relatively smooth sweep of the second hand is a neat feature for a watch in this price range. The watch seems well-built and the band and case feel like they'd hold up to a fair bit of abuse.

On the other hand, as others have mentioned, this is a hefty watch. There's a lot of steel here and it makes for a lot of weight on your wrist. If you don't find that appealing, this watch isn't for you. Also, in contrast to the bezel ring, the dial for the compass ring is quite loose and is easily rotated during wrist motion. I've found this to be annoying having the cardinal directions perpetually skewed off-centre. Furthermore, and more importantly, despite the screw-down crown the dial on the left side of the case which turns the compass does not screw down. This seems like a serious design flaw for a watch rated to 200m and I wouldn't trust it for more than a shallow swim. In addition, the scoring on the crown causes the edge of the crown to be quite sharp and can dig uncomfortably into the wrist.

Also Noteworthy:
-I've used and abused this watch while doing things like mountain biking, hammering and camping. As a result of some significant force, the (free floating) coiled spring in the movement jerked down and got caught on another internal component requiring a jeweller to dis-lodge the spring. Whether this issue is unique to this watch or movement design, though, I can't say. (Update Dec. 2012: After wearing the watch snowboarding and taking a jarring fall, the watch stopped again. This time, suspecting the problem was related to the main spring, I gave the watch a good firm knock, and managed to loose the spring and set the movement running again.)

4.0 out of 5 stars Awfully good. Not perfect 2 July 2012
By Dennis - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is a good watch. It is heavy (I like that), easily readable day and night. It looks good on my arm and would appear to be a much more expensive timepiece. (I paid about $200) The one slightly negative comment I have is that the face of the watch (crystal) should be slightly recessed below the bezel to protect it. Otherwise I am happy with the purchase. I also have the Big Orange model which I also like a lot. As my jeweler said when I had him take a couple of links out of this one, you can't beat a Seiko for the money. I think he's right.

5.0 out of 5 stars Most Bling for the Buck! 28 Oct 2007
By Fernando Valenzuela - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I love this watch! I get compliments on it all the time. I've found the time to be accurate for a mechanical watch; automatics are never as good as quartz but I'm very happy with this one. This watch looks good in the office, on the beach, or in between. One thing is the compass bezel is pretty much uselss for a couple of reasons: 1. you have to use the Sun to line it up but if you know the time and where the sun is, you already know the direction you're headed. 2. The crown that controls the compass does not lock so the bezel turns by itself as it rubs against my arm. To me this is not a big deal since I don't use the compass feature. All in all, this watch is worth the money. I've wanted an automatic watch for a while and dream of someday getting an Omega Speedmaster or Seamaster so I can fulfill my James Bond dreams. Meanwhile, in reality, I'll stick with the Seiko and save $1800.
