Top Customer Reviews
The second hand on this watch points exactly at the minute markers as it moves around on the face, which may be a trivial thing but it is an indicator of quality in Seiko's watch-making process.
The watch has luminous paint on the hands and on each of the 12 dots on the number/stroke positions on the face. If the watch is left on a table under a lamp for about 5 minutes, it will glow really brightly when the light is turned off. It fades during the night, but there was still enough glow for me to read the time in the dark when I woke up 7 hours after switching off the light.
The strap provided with the watch is quite good quality and there is no sign of wear so far. Seiko have done a good job on the day/date - it is like a bold font and is quite easy to read. The date is also easy to change. The process to change the date on short months is to pull out the crown one click and turn it counter clockwise (towards you) to advance the date. Assuming that the watch never runs out of charge and stops of course, the day name will never need to be changed.
I'm very pleased with the watch and I'd recommend it to others.
This watch looks classy with its gold body and black dial, has day/date lettering that is clearly legible, is solar powered, has luminous hands and isn't over sized in either diameter or thickness. I hardly know I'm wearing it.
Similar Citizens, Bulova and Wenger watches all fell short in one or more of these aspects. I was ready to spend twice what I paid for this watch but couldn't find one that has the features this one does.
All pros no cons

Seiko's response for warranty is that the Amazon seller that sold this watch is NOT an authorized reseller, so there is no warranty provided for the watch. So unless Amazon (and its sellers) can prove they are authorized resellers, you are buying this watch at your own risk. Seiko's email message is copied below for reference:
Thank you for choosing the Seiko Corporation of America (SCA) Service Center for your timekeeping needs.
E2Z Watches is not and authorized Seiko retailer, therefore the watch you purchased from them is not covered under the Seiko Limited Warranty.
You are welcome to send your watch to our repair facility for a free evaluation and after the free evaluation is completed we will contact you with the a repair estimate.
I will send the watch back to Japan, if necessary.
When no one in the one and only US repair facility is available to take a call, THAT is some terrible customer service.
The watch has only been worn a dozen times over the last 1 1/2 years. It sits atop my dresser and gets plenty of light.
Too bad Seiko makes garbage watches and has terrible to non-existent customer service.
Do yourself a favor and buy a Citizens. I have not had any issues with mine to date.
