Everything related to the watch works extremely well, with one minor exception which I will get to below.
The watch arrived surprisingly fast, well packed in a small cardboard box with ample foam padding and tightly wrapped plastic to keep it from getting scratched. There was no giftbox included with mine however, so if you are planning on getting this as a gift you may want to arrange for something more presentable.
The "open heart" design looks super cool to me, though the open back and the view below the escapement is not particularly interesting.
The outer controls are as follow:
o Upper right button: controls the date indicator (numbers underneath the logo)
o Mid right knob: controls the time - pull out to adjust unfortunately there is no hacking movement
o Lower right button: controls the month (dial on right)
o Lower left button: controls the day of week (dial on left)
o Knob on left: controls the outer part of the inside dial - which is a circular slide rule (pretty cool!)
My one big complaint is that the knob controlling the slide rule is not engaged properly and is very difficult to control. It feels like it will break without much use - which might in practice be fine since I have no idea or much use for a sliderule when I have an iPhone in my pocket. The red marker for the number "60" on the outer ring is printed slightly off center - enough to throw out some calculations. Then again, we don't exactly buy mechanical watches for their accuracy, and I don't plan on learning how to use a sliderule anytime soon.
For some reason the outer silver bezel rotates, and only counter clockwise.Read more ›
1.)For $38 including shipping you can't beat it.
2.) Finish is a brite, scratch-free chrome on bezel, case and bracelet.
3.) Accuracy is about 10 sec/day fast. Might be better if wound more.
4.) Dial is white and subdials are stainless steel. Slide rule is white and a little loose but works.
5.) Watch does not hack but does brake when wound nearly down.(move crown to
time setting position & apply very slight pressure as if to move hands CCW.)
6.) Watch does wind by turning crown (stem- winder).
F.) Power reserve is at least 25 hours. I wound it 35 twists on the crown then put it in my Diplomat winder for one hour (approx 350 turns clock-wise) followed by one hour (another 350 turns) ccw. Then laid it on my dresser. It ran for 25h-41min.
G.) Water resistance is probably non-existant. I wore it a while doing yard work in hot, humid weather and it fogged a bit but continued to run ok. A couple hours in AC cleared it up.
H.) The "Japan movement" has no identifiers I can find. But it doesn't look like those in any of my Seikos.
An automatic mechanical, such as this one, requires love and attention. I can certainly give it that. it also requires a bit of energy to operate, via the auto wind feature built into the mechanics. That energy is derived through wrist movement.
I work at a place where my hands often move faster than my eyes or much less my brain can keep up with. i felt for certain that if I could get used to having it on my wrist, then it would be worth wearing every day. So I wore it today, as the trial run of it's first day at work.
The previous two days were "break-in" days; getting used to the mechanics, the care, and the quirks that all machines have. I was uncertain of the reliability of the machine, for every morning it had gained a half-hour of time. Inconvenient, for sure, but as it is not perfect, as everything in this life will never be, I gave it the benefit of the doubt on the trial run days. I also assume that as the mainspring runs down and gets near the end, it seems to run exceedingly fast. This is of course a theory, for having had the watch for three or four days certainly does not make me an expert on mechanical watches.
So getting used to adjusting it was hard, but now came today, the working day, when the real test would begin, too see if it would be more consistent while my wrist moves at work. After working for eight hours, I am forced to conclude that I am moving too fast for it to handle.Read more ›
