Nice ! Different 4 Sept. 2013
By Rob - Published on Amazon.com
It's a nice watch. The blue colors are darker than what the picture shows. Some how they really got the blue to "pop" in the pics. Unless your under bright lights or in sunlight I don't think most other people would even notice the blue on the watch face indoors. One thing looks really neat is that when under water the face looks really set deep into the casing under the Crystal. The inter-most hour markers are framed in chrome that doesn't really show up in the ad pics but they glint in bright light just to mention that. The band seems a little thin for the watch size. It's a hefty watch height wise also. I did replace the blue rubber strap with a black,blue,gray stripe NATO 20 mm strap shortly after getting the watch just to change it up. That looks kind of cool.(scroll down to customer images and comments on main ad page to see my "real world" pics) Keeps good time and is always running even after sitting for a couple of months in a drawer. The button at the 2 O'clock position when pushed tells you the reserve battery charge left in months via the sweep hand. The rotating bezel has high raised numbers that stick up which seem to bump on things and turn the bezel from time to time. It's different and that's kind of cool but I would say that's what it's got going for it!

Seems like a great watch, even if not what I expected. 3 Mar. 2014
By David - Published on Amazon.com
I just got this watch and wanted to give my thoughts. First of all, the watch face is not black, it is charcoal gray. The bezel is mostly gray as well. The only black on the watch is the blocks on the bezel that the Arabic numerals rest on. I researched a couple of places online before buying, and some said black, while some said gray. But no one had a picture that really showed the true color. Now that I have the watch, it is definitely gray. I got such a great deal on the watch (supposed to be 75% off retail) that it may not be worth returning; however, I think I would have preferred a black dial and bezel for a more classic look.

I was worried that the markings on the bezel might rub off, as the photos made it appear that they were merely painted on. However, all of the markings and numbers are recessed and painted. The bezel is supposed to be PVD-coated, and I can't speak to how well it will hold up, since I just got it, but I was at least happy that the bezel was more than just painted on.

The lume on this watch is incredible. The best I have ever seen on a watch. A couple of seconds in the sun, and it will really glow. I have read that Seiko's lumebrite is outstanding, and I will vouch for that. My only gripe here is that the only lume on the bezel is the "pearl" at the 0 position. I find it somewhat odd that a watch that is rated for SCUBA diving does not have more lume on the bezel. But it is usually the watches that are rated for greater depths that has this feature (however, I did see an Invicta that had it).

The blue on the band in the photo is exaggerated. The color itself is a little more muted and dull, although the shade of blue is pretty close. The blue on the dial is easily noticed. I don't agree with what another reviewer said that you can barely see it.

In terms of fit and finish, everything seems to line up. The seconds hand seems to hit every mark. The bezel is unidirectional and seems to ratchet evenly and match the markings on the dial. Even the screw-in case back was set perfectly straight.

The watch is thick and heavy. I purchased it as a casual-wear watch. I wanted something durable, but inexpensive (had to have good water resistance, and not get scratched too easily). Good luck finding a solar, kinetic, or automatic watch rated for "Diver's 200m" with a sapphire crystal for less money.

I had read that Seiko had improved its Kinetic technology from the past. By switching from a capacitor to a lithium ion battery, their kinetics are now able to last up to 10 years, as opposed to the about 4 years that the kinetics were previously getting. I am not sure if the Kinetic technology is going to prevail in the watch industry. Solar seems to be the predominant technology for quartz watches that don't require frequent battery replacement (although some battery-powered watches with lithium ion batteries are rated to last 10 years without solar or kinetic, so unless the batteries in solar and kinetic watches get more longevity, their days could be numbered). Nevertheless, I think a kinetic watch has a greater likelihood of gaining value as a vintage watch over any of the others.

I intend to replace the watch band. I will probably go with a zulu or nato strap. There seems to be some discrepancy on the distance between the lugs. I saw someone measure it as 21.04 mm. There are not very many 21mm bands to choose from. 20mm will leave a gap, and 22mm will be too big.

Those are my first impressions. This is my third Seiko. My other two were "Rolex" look-a-likes. The first one got condensation in it within the first year and got returned. The second one lasted over 18 years, but got drenched on a ride at Universal Studios in Orlando. The cost to replace the movement was more than I paid for the watch. After that, I tried a Casio that looked like a Submariner, but after replacing the first battery, the subsequent batteries would only last six months. So, I wanted a watch that didn't require frequent battery replacement, and did not need to be set if I did not wear it everyday. So, solar or kinetic was the only way to go. It looks like this watch will fit the bill, if I can get used to the charcoal gray.

Update--November 12, 2014
Watch is wearing great, but has been gently used. There are no scratches or issues with the watch. It keeps excellent time, and resetting the watch about every other month when adjusting the date for the months with less than 31 days is sufficient to keep the time accurate. I wore the original band briefly and did not experience any problems with it, other than not enjoying the blue color. I replaced it with a black, 21mm Zulu three-ring band which fit great and was a perfect size for me (the rings have a dull pewter-look rather than polished steel, so a bit of contrast with the case of the watch, but I am happy none-the-less; I used the end of a thin paper clip to dislodge the spring bars, which I reused after reading that Seiko's come with fat spring bars; the replacement band has become frayed at the buckle holes, but that is not a complaint about the watch itself). However, I am not as enthusiastic about the luminescence of the watch as I was initially. A couple of seconds in the sun will give you an extremely-bright lume for under 15 minutes, but then it is gone. Interior lighting will give it a little lume, but not much, and it will disappear even quicker. I didn't purchase the watch for SCUBA diving, but feel the short duration of the luminescence may hamper its use for that purpose.

Good watch....but that band. 9 Mar. 2014
By Mark Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is a nice watch. The band however(and you know it is bad if I am devoting the bulk of the review) is awful. It catches your skin, leaves horrible sore imprints and is too thin for a watch this substantial. I recommend a nice aftermarket watch band and then you will enjoy what is a handsome, sporty, case hardened watch.
I have a medium size wrist and this is the perfect size for me 7 Dec. 2014

I purchased this as an everyday watch to wear. I haven't purchased a Seiko in many years but I see their quality standards are still very high. I'm very impressed with the fit and feel of a watch in the $300 range. I have a medium size wrist and this is the perfect size for me. Any larger, and it would be too big. So far, very impressed with the watch.
