Seiko Mechanical Diver's watch,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Seiko Men's SKX007K2 Diver's Automatic Watch (Watch)
Seiko Divers' watches have a well deserved reputation for reliability and durability. And they look great, either with a wetsuit or a tuxedo.
The only drawback to these watches is that they are 'non-hacking' meaning the second hand doesn't stop when the adjustment knob is pulled out. you have to hold it to get the works to stop to set it to the second.

I'm not quite sure I understand what you mean by "holding" it to stop. What do you hold and how do you hold it?

To 'stop' the sweeping second hand: when the crown is in the time-setting position - turn the crown very slightly in a counter-clockwise direction and it will suspend the forward movement of the second hand.
Seiko 7S26 automatics usually run +10 - +20 seconds a day; unless you are wanting to time the watch for accuracy there's really no reason to fiddle with it. If you need/want a more consistently accurate watch, a quartz movement will be your best solution.
