This is by far, the nicest watch (look wise) I would have had in my collection. It is classy, and weighty. A very solid timepiece. Well, except for the fact that I owned it for less than 6 hours and the winder fell/pulled out. I have owned cheap watches that I have never had this happen before so you can't imagine how shocked I was to have a Seiko fall apart like this.
So far I am willing to chalk this up to a fluke and return this and order another one. I will update in my next review.

Second watch arrived and it is working well so far. Amazon issued a full refund without question and shipped the second one before I even got to ship the broken one back. As far as the watch itself, I still like the simple elegance it has and the solid feel of it on my wrist. Still one of the nicer watches in my collection, second only to my Citizen's.

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.

Just to be clear (because at least one of the customer reviews is misleading):

This watch has a 4-year battery life (not a 10-year battery life).

"Perpetual calendar" means that once you set the date (which is not a trivial matter if the date has not already been set for you by the dealer), you will never have to set it ever again, as long as you replace the battery before it dies. The date will automatically adjust for short months (like February and April) and for leap years.

When the battery gets weak, the second hand will move in 2-second intervals instead of the usual 1-second intervals. That is your cue to get the battery changed before the watch dies, so that the perpetual calendar will continue to keep the date properly with the new battery installed.

To see how to operate this watch, look up "caliber 6A32" on the Internet and you will find a pdf manual.

By the way--it's a very nice watch for the price.

I love watches, and this one has quickly become one of my favorites!

Seems other reviewers had quality issues, but mine is working perfectly after 1 month at least.Came in original carton with users manual.

The pictures are telling the truth about the looks, it is really a stylish watch. Especially the watch band of solid metal(no thin pressed steel) gives a nice heavy feel to it.

Size is perfect, medium large, for a man.
The only downside is perhaps that the watch itself is a little thin, would had an even better look with a larger/thicker crown.

Buy this watch bring it to Venezuela and left damaged when trying to set the time I keep the crown in hand, right now is in jewelry and I was informed that they have to change the whole mechanism to adjust the date and time as it is damaged.

No returned the watch as it was going out a lot more expensive shipping to return it to the seller from Venezuela than it actually costs the watch, which is why I decided to send it to the jeweler to try to fix it and not lose everything.

I hope my case is accidental and not pass the same to other buyers.

Compre este Reloj para traerlo a Venezuela y salio dañado, cuando trate de ajustar la hora me quedo la corona en la mano, en estos momentos está en la joyería y me informaron que tienen que cambiarle todo el mecanismo para ajustar la fecha y hora ya que el mismo está dañado.

No devolví el Reloj ya que iba a salir mucho más caro el envío para regresarlo al vendedor desde Venezuela que lo que realmente cuesta el Reloj, es por esto que decidí enviarlo a la joyería para tratar de arreglarlo y no perder todo.

Espero que mi caso sea algo accidental y no le pase lo mismo a otros compradores

This is a very nice watch and was a great deal. I wanted a watch that showed both the time and date, and the extra perk with this watch was that it was able to skip the 31st of months that only had 30 or 28 days, and was even able to reset itself for leap years!

Very good watch, top quality, nice feel and look to it, solidly built. The band is solid, not folded metal which is a big plus in terms of quality. I have received a number of compliments on this watch. The price is unbeatable at <$90, compare to Macy's and see for yourself.
