The watch model that will not retire.,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Seiko Men's SND253 Tachymeter Watch (Watch)
I purchased the white faced version of this same watch back in early '03, and I'm quite certain it was on the market a year or two before that. It kept very good time. The battery in it has died by now and I'm reluctant to have it replaced as the local jewley store scratched the back of my favored Seiko Moon Watch made in the '80s replacing it's battery. This model was my second Seiko since the Moon Watch and it started my journey into bankruptcy as I'm now a Seiko collector.
What I can tell you about this present model is that Black is Beautiful and the legibility is significantly better than the white faced model now retired. When you look at it on your wrist you too may say, " Man, that looks good ". It is not overbearing in size.
Now if you want to get the particular set of instructions for the watch case, not the caliber, though that's availible as well, follow this proceedure, it's in Flash formatted software so browser cut & pasting won't quite work....
Seikousa > 'FAQ' (at the bottom) > question #15 > 'case functions' (at the bottom as well ) you'll receive a 4 page pdf describing the slide rule, et all... And please realize in this day and age, it is really only a novelty, GPS & hand calculators have far far better resolutions. This is what they had availible in the '50s.
At Amazon's price, at this point in time, it is a good buy.
