Beautiful Watch - Excellent Price
on April 7, 2012
I am sorry that the other two reviewers had problems with this watch. I have found it to work flawlessly for me. I bought this watch to use in place of my older Seiko Kinetic. This watch is powered by a battery, the Kinetic by movement. My work does not allow me to wear the Kinetic except for a couple of hours in the evenings. The couple of hours of wear a day is not enough to keep the Kinetic running properly. I have found that it is easier to go to the Jewelry store every couple of years and have the battery replaced by people who know what they are doing and have the proper tools needed. I have two Bulova Marine Stars and now this Seiko that all run on battery. I just accept the cost of battery replacement as the part of owning my watches. Now..back to this Seiko. This watch is much better looking than the pictures. Solid feel, solid weight, that feels great on your wrist. The watch face alone is about the size of a half dollar coin. Face is uncluttered and easy to read. Date window is slightly larger than most and pretty easy to read. Seiko makes great jewelry, by jewelry I mean the watch case and band. Very well made, no sharp edges, very comfortable on the wrist. This watch will look like you spent a ton of money on it. I purchased this Seiko from a chain department store at twice the price Amazon is selling it for and I still feel that I got a great price on a great looking watch.
