Again for the money, you cannot buy a better watch. However, if you are willing to spend more on a watch, you can buy the similar version of the same watch (SKX009K2) for about $75.00 more. It is better in two ways: Screw down crown and can will go under water 200m. So, if that is important, I would pay the extra $ and get the skx009k2. I was willing to pay the extra $, but at the time I was looking, the Skx00k92 was not sold by Amazon, and Seiko said that you need to buy form a Dealer (Amazon) to get the 3 Yr. warranty, plus if there was an issue with the watch, I wanted to be able to exchange it without any problems.
I wear this every day during the week. I bang it on metal bars, wear it inside a freezer at 0 degrees F for hours at a time and generally abuse it like a cheap plastic watch. It takes scratches very well - they barely show up besides on the bezel insert. Also, the crystal is surprisingly strong and has not received a single scratch in the same way a Sapphire crystal would hold up. The watch is light, does not pull on hairs and does not make that cheap rattle sound found on so many sub $300 watches. The see through case back is a huge plus also in my opinion and has not received a scratch yet from setting the watch down flat.
Perfect daily beater watch!
To clarify issues cited in a couple of negative reviews:
Keep in mind that this watch is entirely mechanical—no batteries; it has to be wound, which happens automatically. The self-winding design transfers the kinetic energy from your arm and wrist movements to the main spring by means of an eccentric-shaped 'flywheel,' or winder. (All of the internal mechanics are visible through the backside crystal that faces the wrist). Thus, the watch is wound continually while it is being worn, but not after you remove it. The instructions specifically state that the watch must be worn a minimum number of hours per day in order to run continuously, without stopping. On the weekends, or if I'm doing a lot of typing at the computer, I'll remove the watch and go without wearing it for a day or so. Sometimes there is enough energy stored in the spring that it is still running when I put it on 24-48 hours later. Other times, it needs to be reset.
Another negative review stated that the bracelet was too big. I have a very large wrist, and the bracelet was a perfect fit for me; I can certainly see how it would be too big for other folks; however, I do believe that a jeweler can remove links and size the bracelet accordingly. I have never experienced any discomfort with the bracelet, save for long typing sessions, when I opt to remove it, mostly because it comes into contact with the surface of my wood desk, and I don't want to abrade the finish on the desktop.
Overall, I think that this is a fine timepiece—one of the best I've owned, and very modestly priced.
