I have always admired this watch. It has been around for decades now, and for some reason I didn't feel like wearing a watch and didn't buy one of them. Recently I sold an old Rolex, for which I got a cubic buttload of cash, and decided to buy myself a present. This was it. It arrived right on time, and in perfect condition. This is one gorgeous watch. I had thought of buying a similar looking Rolex Datejust, but that would have cost me sixty or eighty times as much as this watch, has a mechanical movement which is not as accurate as quartz, is a bit heavier, and lacks the elegant proportions of this watch. This watch is absolutely perfect for me, even fits me, keeps time to within a second or two a day, and does not keep me in a perpetual state of anxiety about damaging or losing it. Heck, worse comes to worse I just buy another one. I don't see any other watch, at any price, that has such timeless appeal and fantastic value. Great watch, buy one!
Update after 6 weeks- Still love this watch, best looking and most comfortable watch I have ever owned. Maybe that's why it has been in the Seiko collection for decades. Recently started comparing its accuracy to the online atomic clock time and was amazed that it has not been off by so much as a second a day. Dead nuts on. Hard to complain about a watch this great at this price.
Bud Kelly5.0 out of 5 stars This is the nuts! Great watch!!!
I ordered this watch as a Christmas present that my wife wanted me to have. I have a small collection of watches including one "high dollar" 14K gold Rolex, which I bought years ago before I decided I'd rather have a few very nice looking watches that didn't cost a small fortune, and were the SIZE of a wrist watch, 36-39mm. No "wrist-Clocks" for me. Even the Invicta's I own are the older watches, size 37mm. This Seiko is absolutely beautiful! I wanted the watch because it has the look of the two-tone Datejust from Rolex and is even more striking! So far it is keeping excellent time and because it is a quartz movement I don't have to keep it on a watch-winder. I had a local jeweler here in NYC take out a couple of links for $8 bucks and it fits great! This is the first Seiko I've ever owned but it is as pretty as any watch I have in my small collection, including the Rolex! Okay, it's not "gold", just Goldtone, but it looks just as good, and the most important thing to me about owning any watch is .... Do you LIKE the way it LOOKS? Isn't that what attracts anybody to item they want to own? I love it! I would recommend it to anyone as a gift or even to purchase it for yourself. Amazon as always delivered it on time, even a day early and during the holiday! And a great price! Treat yourself and never believe because it is a Seiko, it's not a quality watch. Seiko makes great watches, the Grand Seiko cost over $2000, so if you want to spend a lot of money on a watch, you can spend it on a Seiko. But buy this model and take your lady out for a great evening and still have some bucks left over!
Jordan RhodesMost striking watch in my collection. It's a beauty!
I bought this watch for my brother because he said he had one similar many years ago, lost it, and was thinking about buying another one. I surprised him with it and he is extremely pleased. The watch is nice for any casual or dressy occasion and looks great. The gold and silver two-tone metal should please the fashion conscious person. 🙂 He just likes the watch because it is so durable and good looking. Seiko makes a good product at a moderate price. I would definitely recommend this product.
