This watch is amazing!
It's truly sleek, unlike all other watches, and believe me, I scrolled through many pages (hundreds of models) and none caught my eye more than this Seiko solar watch did.
Yes, solar, no need to replace batteries. It's interesting that the solar cells are not in the least bit visible - nice feature.
It requires to be exposed to the sun for some time before you first wear them (one day is enough).
I didn't set the date yet. The font of the date is not the coolest; it's looks like a font right from the 60's, and the number's background is plain white (could have been more cream color). The manual also looks straight from the 70's.
The watch seems thicker than other watches, but I don't notice it when I'm wearing it.
The leather band is robust and seems will last a long time (I had the watch for about 4 months now).
If your looking for a unique-looking type of dress watch, don't pass up this opportunity, especially with the price tag of $90 for a Seiko watch. I too hope to be part of the Seiko watch wearer group who feel they were never let down with their Seiko watch.
