This is an automatic mechanical watch. Automatic watches do not operate on batteries; instead, they are powered automatically by the movement of the wearer’s arm. If the main spring in your automatic watch is not wound sufficiently, timekeeping may become less accurate. In order to maintain accuracy, wear the watch for 8 hours or more per day, or manually wind the main spring by turning the crown. When not in use, automatic watches may be kept charged with an automatic watch winder – a watch storage unit which may be purchased separately.

In the Seiko box was the warranty card and a pillow for the watch to "rest" on. The watch was well-protected.
I worried about the size of the watch (since it was unseen). I'm about 5'10, 160lbs. with an average build. The watch is a perfect size. The "bracelet" is not too dainty nor it is humongous or heavy. It is extremely comfortable and there were none of the sharp edges that I read about in other reviews. There was no grace period where the skin of my wrist rubbed as I got used to a new watch.
Removing links turned out to be slightly difficult but was eventually done with a pair of jewelry needle-nosed pliers. There was no need to push on anything on the outside edge of band (only pull) and consequently no need to scratch the bracelet and its components. The hasp opens and closes dutifully using the mechanism and I have not experienced any difficulty with closing it or keeping the hasp closed.
The picture of the watch (on Amazon) is nowhere as attractive as the watch is actually. In the image, the face seems extremely black against a gleaming silver bracelet. However, looking at the watch in person, the tone of the metal and black of the face are perfect complements.
The adjustment "knob" extends to two different lengths. The innermost extension adjusts calendar date (1,2,3,...) and day of the week (Sun, Mon, etc.) by varying the direction the post is turned (clockwise vs. counter-clockwise). The days of the week cycle through both English and Spanish (I keep mine on Spanish for fun). The second extension on the post adjusts the time as you would expect.Read more ›
I was a little hesitant about the band at first - it is a style that I traditionally associate with more sporty watches (although that may just be me). Still, upon receiving the watch, I was very impressed. This watch is incredibly stylish and I have been very impressed with the automatic movement so far. This is also the first automatic watch I have had. This watch came working right out of the box (no doubt due to shipping), and has not stopped yet w/ 6-8 hours of daily wear. I have yet to do any type of run-down test to see how long the mainspring stays wound for, so I can't comment on that. Still, this is a watch that I don't mind wearing daily - it really does go with most anything and is not heavy enough to be burdensome. In the future, I may look for an automatic watch winder, but for right now, this watch will be staying on my wrist.
Also, I just wanted to note that this IS an automatic watch, so it will NEVER keep time as accurately as a quartz watch will. If you want a watch that is accurate to the second, you need to buy a quartz watch. Still, if I'm not mistaken, you can have the watch adjusted to keep time more accurately, although I haven't had any complaints after a weeks worth of wear.
I think for the price, you really can't go wrong here. I will do my best to update this review if I notice any problems with this watch.
It feels minutely smaller than my Hamilton 38mm Khaki but still has decent wrist presence. I'm 6 feet tall but have 6.75" wrists so I need watches between 36mm and 40mm to fit my wrist but still show up.
I bought this watch because I felt like I need to give my Hamilton a break sometimes or I'll end up scratching and banging it beyond recognition. I also thought a decent quality but low cost dress watch I could travel with without worrying about it, made sense.
The indices and bevel are highly polished and look quite posh. The pinstripe makes the face look elegant and the brushed sides of the stainless steel case contrasts nicely against the bright work. The dauphine hands are precise, and the second hand movement is nearly as smooth as my Hamilton. Overall, the build quality is astounding and does not indicate the price. Not that anyone will see the Seiko 5 logo and mistake this for an expensive watch but it doesn't look, feel or operate like a cheap watch. I am particularly impressed with how little play there is in the movement when setting the time; the hands move exactly in sync with the rotation of the crown.
The bracelet looks much better in person but is stiff and, as others have said, feels (but, thankfully, does not look) cheap. Noisy and stiff, it looks like a toned down jubilee bracelet.Read more ›
