It's true. I literally stopped looking at watches after buying this one.

Before I get started, i just wanted to say, I never write reviews. In fact, out of the many purchase I've made online, this is my second review, first (and probably only) with watches.

I've had plenty of watches in my lifetime. I'm not a collector, I just like watches that is accurate and that can stand the test of time. I've had mostly entry level to mid level watches, ranging from timex, casio invicta, to seiko, tissot and steinhart. Some were quality made but heavy, some were good looking but bulky, and some were just too expensive too wear everyday to avoid damage or theft. Maybe that is the reason why I've had many watches in my lifetime. I couldn't find a watch that met all of my simple criteria.

The other day I was at Macy's to buy my Wife a perfume for her birthday. On the way to the perfume department, were the watches. I'm a big Seiko fan. What I like about Seiko is, they attend to all markets. From entry level Seiko 5's, to mid to high level Seiko Spirits and Grand Seiko's. Everyone gets a chance to try their watches. And consistently and historically, Seiko has always made quality, and durable and most importantly, accurate watches that are always reasonably priced.

I go up to the case and began to scan from right to left. As I got to about the middle section, I stopped and notice the SNDC99 and I couldn't stop looking at it. I thought to myself "Wow that one is a nice watch! Must be expensive though." It reminded me of an Omega Speedmaster. I was initially planning on saving up for the Seiko Spirit SBPP001, as it does take time to save up over $450 for a watch. This one cost $244.

I quickly asked the cashier If I can look at the watch. As she handed it to me, I fell in love. It's ridiculously aesthetically beautiful. The details of this watch is pure amazing. It had so many subtle details that made the watch as a whole, pop out. From its chrome dials and hands, to its black bezel, to the chrome accent on each end link, it's thin case, giving it a streamlined clean look.

I put it on my wrist and it was perfect. It was lightweight and it contoured my arm perfectly, like it was the extension of my arm. I'm not a big fan of big bulky watches, as this one was on the thin side, which I like mainly bc I have small wrists (7"). It's 39mm case and it's perfect weight, I never had a watch feel this good on my wrist.

I believe the word best describes this watch is, BALANCED. It's chronograph feature and black bezel makes this was sporty, but it's chrome hands and dials, thin and light streamlined design gives it a classy look. It's light, but doesn't feel cheap. Its thin, but it's design stands out from your wrist. And best all, you will get a great quality and accurate watch by a reputable brand for less than $125 here on Amazon. Over $100 less than Macy's!

It's not an Omega, it's not a Tag. It's not a Rolex. But every time I check to see what time it is, I get a smile on my face knowing I have a beautiful, quality, and accurate watch on my wrist without breaking the bank.

I'm done. The search is over. I have found my watch.

Excellent watch and I would have given it 5 stars except it is difficult to read in the dark. That said everything else is terrific on the watch. I have small wrists (6 to 6 1/4 inches) and even though the watch is about 41mm it wears smaller due to short and downward curved lugs. I was also able to make the bracelet smaller by removing links. Links came apart easily using a small straightened paper clip. The Chronograph functions just like it should. It is my favorite watch.

I own several watches. This Seiko is now among my favorites. It's very good looking, relatively small and thin, and very accurate. Mine has stayed within 30 seconds of exact time over the last 6 months. I also like the tenths of a second dial. Most chronographs in this price range only have a 1 second resolution. Classy watch at a good price.

Seiko quality/reliability and very good looking. Some watches look comically large on the wrist, others too delicate. This one hits the mark and with just the right level of features to balance dressy/casual needs. Great price too. Highly recommended!

Very handsome watch.Great stop watch. However, it can be a little difficult to get a rapid time check trying to find the narrow hands in a field of long hour markers. Of course I do have older eyes.

The watch itself is extremely nice but I can agree with some other reviews when they say that it is a little too small.
The material is very good chosen as well and I can recommend this watch to everyone that is searching a smaller but still very nice looking watch.

The watch is great, it shines brightly and really stands out. Definitely catches people's eye and receives compliments. My only hesitation is that while I am by no means a large person, the face of the watch and the band are somewhat small. I would definitely search for a larger face next time.

This watch works well, looks great and wears comfortably. The interior of the watch is filled with visually pleasing details, and at this price point ($150) is hard to beat for a dressy sports watch.

While there is a learning curve to useing this watch it is not steep. I had to get used to the small second hand. Additionally, the window for the date is very small. Setting the correct date so that it follows AM/PM is something that I am still working on! Considering everything (especially the special pricing that I was able to obtain) this seems to be a fine time piece and I trust it will last me a long time.
