5.0 out of 5 stars Not all that orange, 9 Feb. 2013

This review is from: Seiko Men's Diver's Solar Watch SNE109P1 (Watch)
It arrived sooner than expected and very well packaged. If you are looking for a bright orange statement you will be disappointed, it's really quite tame however.....

I have worn Rolex for years and wanted a reasonably priced back-up that was tough, reliable and was maintenance-free. Automatics at this price are hopeless and I hate batteries so I looked at this watch as an option. It's good, very good indeed. I've only had it a few weeks but it is only about 1second out and I have no intention of changing it for that kind of margin! The day/date change is not immediate as with a Rolex and there are a few hours past midnight when the day is displayed in a non-English abbreviation which is silly because it's only there for a couple of hours and then switches to English day abbreviation so what's the point of that?

The strap is true to the Diver's name. It's tough inflexible rubber and very oversized to allow it to be worn over a wetsuit so it ain't dainty but you could always switch it for something more daywear.

For the price I suspect it would be hard to beat. If you want a tough, reliable watch that you can just wear through everything then this does it all. I would just add that the lume is the best I have seen - the face is readable for hours.

Not for everyone but I highly recommend this watch.
