5.0 out of 5 stars 2nd purchase, June 27, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I use tactical clothing as a defense contractor and purchased a 2nd belt in a different color. The belt is comfortable to wear - easy to cinch and the first purchase has been durable in over 15 months of wear in South Korea. Not the cheapest item you could buy - but worth every cent for comfort, reliability and ability to carry and support the heaviest items of load.

5.0 out of 5 stars First of my 4R36 Monsters, June 10, 2014
Seiko has upgraded the movement on its MONSTER series as well as slightly changing the dial. The 4R36 24 jewel movement both hacks and is hand windable - unlike the 7S26 (or 7S36) movement in its older Monster models. This was enough for me to add this model to the 7 other Monster models I own as part of my Seiko collection. The day/date wheels and positions on the dial remain the same as in the older Monster series - as does the case and divers bezel (120 clicks unidirectional)

The bracelet remains one of the finest stainless steel dive bracelets available at any price. The lume on all Seiko divers is world class -the fit, finish and construction make this an amazing value. As a diver or sport watch - there is no better for the money.

Again - the "Hardlex" is a mineral glass crystal - not sapphire - but has been relatively scratch resistant in the Monsters I wear in my collection. The Seiko Monster has been a world class dive watch for more than a decade - and remains at the head of its class.

This model - with its red highlights on the dial indices was different enough to have me make the purchase as something 'different'

4.0 out of 5 stars Unique Fashion Watch, June 10, 2014
As a watch collector, I've always been fascinated with the Precisionist movement sweeping second hand - but never had the urge to purchase one new. Recently one became available on an internet watch forum of which I am a member and the price was enough to have me make a purchasing decision.

This is a large fashion watch with a uniquely curved upper case and crystal that conforms to the curve of your wrist. The bezel is fixed to the case with 4 hexagonal set screws. The dial work appears to be carbon fiber overlaid with a rose gold chapter ring and an inner ring for 24 hour time. The indices are superluminova painted and the 12 o'clock indice is the well recognized Accutron tuning fork symbol.

The screw down crown is protected by case extrusions and the neoprene rubber strap is comfortable enough for casual wear. This is a large - a thick watch and might not make it under some of the tightest shirt cuffs. The rose gold plating on the case crown and back have retained their color after a year of sporadic use (I wear many watches in rotation). I try not to wear neoprene strapped watches in heat and humidity as my sweat collects in crevices and becomes a mess over time if not continually cleaned. Indeed - it may be the acid sweat that discolors the rose gold many complain about.

It's light enough for those who are weight sensitive and accurate to a fault. Only the date needs to be changed on those non 31 day months.

The watch is stylish and attracts its share of attention (if this is a reason you have for buying a watch like this). My wife likes its striking color contrast and its easy to read in daylight with average lume for low light/night time use.

5.0 out of 5 stars Japan Only Tuna Can, June 10, 2014
It's wide, heavy and thick case separates this 'tool watch' nicknamed the"Tuna Can" from less inspired dive watches. Indeed - a quartz movement - but a very special one - and one probably only horologists can appreciate.

The ratchet adjustable bracelet insures a perfect fit no matter on a water logged wrist or a wetsuit. The titanium clasp is prone to scratching but the heavyweight bracelet can take a beating.

Bezel is a true diver delight - easy to manipulate with gloves or wet fingers with a partial protective shroud to prevent accidental movement of the timing bezel (this is the most distinctive design feature in my opinion). Thick Mineral Glass crystal to withstand deep dives (and yes - easier to scratch) and a unique case construction handles helium without an external release valve if you're a deep diver. Lume is world class, as only Seiko divers can deliver. The case back is solid stainless. The watch wears very comfortably-too heavy and too thick for casual wear.

Collectors of Seiko can purchase this watch from the Japan/Thai catalogue/ADs - glad to see it offered here on Amazon also. It is indeed a professional dive watch and a strikingly handsome sports watch. Analog mechanical/automatic movements of this series sell for 2 or 3 times the price of the quartz model.

As the owner of 7 older monsters including the rare YM - this is a welcome addition to my collection. This is a professional watch for professional / serious divers and/or serious collectors. A slightly cheaper neoprene strapped model is also available.

Spending this much for a quartz movement dive watch may escape the common sense test for the average sportsman or casual diver - but the distinction of owning and wearing a TUNA CAN is worth the expense for the serious dive and collector.

The author owns and wears this model on a frequent rotation.

As a geezer who remembers these songs belted out of early transistor radios - finally able to decipher all the words and enjoy the instrumental background music as well ...

Ripped to the Hard Drive in my Infinity or to the iPad mini in my Mustang Convertible - road trip are immense fun belting out the tunes for my wife and I. Working in South Korea - these oldies but goodies are a hit with our South Korean friends as well! Worth the price -

5.0 out of 5 stars Converible with Black interior, May 27, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Black leather is not a cool thing to have in a convertible. The Mustang's steering wheel metal parts tend to get hot when exposed to summer sunlight.

Putting the top up and covering the windshield with this reflective sunshade make summer use of my 2014 convertible more tolerable than without it. A good windshield fit - easy to store when rolled up. Would recommend it to preserve leather interior seating and dashboard materials from direct sunlight.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pricey - but good quality, May 11, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
As a military contract instructor - I need to look appropriately dressed in front of troops - and these Pants get the job done. Pockets galore - and wide enough belt loops for a military utility belt. Takes a good crease and stands up to laundry starch.

Nylon rip stop fabric is not as heavy as cotton and is great for up to 3 season wear in South Korea where I work.

Pricey for imported merchandise - but would recommend them to first responders and emergency services personnel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Military Appreciation Edition, May 9, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Purchased used from Amazon - this Military Appreciation Edition of Office 2010 was a perfect fit for our needs. We wanted to upgrade from Office 2007 - but weren't thrilled to pay yearly fees for our 2 laptops and desktop for Office 2013.

The seller wanted to sell only to a military purchaser - I'm retired Army working for a defense contractor in South Korea - so again - no problem. Shipped through the USPS to an Amy Post Office in Daegu Korea-it arrived within a week in perfect shape.

Works just fine with Windows 8.1 - it loaded without difficulty in all 3 or our machines.

My wife and I are heavy users of Word, Excel and PowerPoint and couldn't be happier with the transaction

Simply the best reason to use Amazon for ALL your purchases!

4.0 out of 5 stars A must for where I live and drive, May 9, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
As a defense contractor - now living and working in South Korea- there are certain car accessories you cannot be without:

1. A Korean/English GPS made specifically for the military - preprogrammed military locations (and the US Embassy in Seoul) as well as international airports ,major attractions etc

2. Black Box front/rear car video. Koreans are pleasant and gracious people - except when driving. A car camera system is necessary to prove the source and cause of any accident you may get involved in

3. Cell phone charger. The Smart phone is my lifeline for messaging and internet access-for my wife and I.

Problems easily solved with this power adaptor.

On long trips it has proved to be an invaluable source of power for our devices-all necessary for our convenience, security and protection.

Our unit works flawlessly (now in its 2nd month of operation). It sometimes gets a tad warm - so its kept where the heat can radiate.

A must have for folks who need a mobile auto power source.
