I usually spend a lot of time reading reviews before a purchase but on this one, it was an impulse buy at the local mall. I have been looking for a casual watch that I can wear with jeans and a polo-T on dress down day; this watch does the trick. It is a sharp looking watch and looks like it's worth a thousand bucks! My daily watch is a Rolex...I think that this piece can give it a run for its money! I bought this watch because of the way it looks but once I got it home and figured out some of the neat features, I love it even more! I love the stopwatch function. It has an alarm that you can set 12 hours before the target time. There is a way to figure out speed using the Tachymeter, but that's way beyond my capabilities. The hands and the dials glow in the dark so you shouldn't have any problem telling the time. The crown screws down like my Rolex and ensure that it is water tight. It is rated to go 10 bars underwater...not sure how deep that is but I wouldn't recommend it since the band is leather. I do like the yellow stiching on the leather band; it matches the yellow on the stopwatch hand. By the way, I purchased it at Macy's. Even with the 10% on top of a 20% sale (9/17/2011), this price on Amazon is over $100 cheaper!! I paid $383 including taxes.
Update 1/2/2012. After owning and wearing this watch for 4 months, I can definitely say that I love this watch. I get a lot of comments and most can't believe that it is a Seiko! I am really happy with this purchase.
