5.0 out of 5 stars Stylis, completely reliable, and immune to scratches., December 12, 2011

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Seiko Men's SKA366 Stainless Steel Two-Tone Kinetic Dress Watch (Watch)
I am most pleased with this watch. I purchased the watch 10 months ago and have been wearing it during the day nearly every day. The watch appears just as it does on the image on Amazon. Here are its strengths, which are the reason why I give it a 5-star review: (1) Amazing resistance to scratching and to shock. I am very impressed. I've had many watches, and most of them have lasted about 6 months. My previous watches suffered from broken glass, scratches, or dislodging of the arrows from the dial. I hit my hands and wrists on door frames all the time, and I have hit this watch's glass (some kind of crystal, actually) and case many times. It shows no scratches, and the crystal remains intact. No doubt, the reasons behind this are the durable crystal and the ceramic glaze mentioned in the manufacturer's description. The wristband and the case remain just as shiny and polished as when the watch first arrived. (2) Lasting charge. The watch is kinetic and charges itself from swinging motion, particularly during walking. I am very pleased with how long the battery hold the charge. I used to keep track of it, but lately I don't think about it much. Every time I check the charge (there is a function for this), the charge has been full, despite that I only wear it during the day, so it can't charge itself from body motion while asleep. The charge fell to about 70% once, but this was because I had not been wearing the watch for 2 weeks. It charged itself quickly after that. The manufacturer states that, over time, the capacity of the batter may decline, as do the capacities of all batteries. So far this hasn't happened to my watch. (3) The glow-in-the-dark dots at the hour marks and on the arrows are highly visible in the dark. The phosphorescent material is well integrated into the design and does not affect the elegance of the watch. (4). I do not shower with the watch or expose it to any water, but I am pleased that it has a decent water resistance. It should be able to withstand various kinds of splashes, at least according to the description. (5). Even though the watch is not complex and technically a formal watch, because it has a metal wristband (which could conceivably be replaced with a black leather one), I am comfortable wearing it to semi-formal academic and consulting occasions, because of the black dial. Personally, I like simpler watches without multiple dials. Keep in mind, however, that, for a really formal occasion in business or political settings, you might want to select a watch with a black (maybe brown) leather wristband and a more complex (but still stylish) analog dial. Con: As mentioned in the manufacturer's description, the watch will fall behind by a couple of second every couple of months. It's not a big deal for me, but someone who enjoys to-the-second punctuality in the style of the old British empire will need to set the time once a month or so. Overall, given the stylish (albeit somewhat informal) appearance of the watch, and given its amazing construction and durability, along with the brand name, I think that it was a bargain.

Sejohn says:
I brought this watch and the issue is that it stops running after 2 days. I would like to know that, Do I need to wear it every day? Because, there are some days I don't wear it. So it won't charge. The instruction book says it hold the charge for 4-6 months once fully charged. I need to know how to charge for full strength. Or how many swing it needs?
