This review is from: Gents/Mens Seiko Sports Watch Stainless Steel & Black Dial, Solar Powered, Chronograph 200m Water Resistant with Date SSC017P1 (Watch)
This was the watch I wanted when I turned 21. I decided instead to treat myself for my retirement. Well you have to have a watch don't you? Out of the box, a lovely solid but not over-heavy feeling. Obviously well constructed and built to last. The dials are clear to read under nearly all lighting conditions. It is nice to see that the hands actually click on to the markings on the dial and do not miss them. One nice feature is the screw-down crowns for the chronograph as well as the main watch - to stop water entering underwater apparently. Can't say I've actually had occasion to want a stopwatch while swimming underwater - yet! One-way bezel had a good, solid feel as it rotates. Luminous hands and markers stay bright for many days. One of the best features of the watch is the Solar charging. No more batteries yes, but even more important is that the case does not need to be cracked to replace battery and therefore the seals stay intact. It is guaranteed for 200m Air Diving. Even re-sizing the band can be done at home although you do need one of the pin-pushers Amazon sells if you want to do it safely. Another nice feature is the bracelet extension you can activate so that it fits over a wet-suited wrist. Well done Seiko. A definite winner.
