This review is from: Seiko Men's SNAE65 "Sportura" Stainless Steel Watch (Watch)
I had been looking at different brands and models for a long time and finally decided on this one because I liked the appearance and features. Its also hard to find another model in this price range with a sapphire crystal which was another selling point for me. I only have a few minor complaints. The first thing I noticed is the band does not flex where it attaches to the case. Not a big deal, but when I'm out in the sun during the summer months I often take my watch off and put it in my pocket to avoid sweat and tan lines. That makes it a little more difficult since it won't fold flat, but its not a big deal. The only other thing I could find wrong is the luminescence doesn't last very long in the dark. I can hold it under a bright light for several minutes and the hands and number markers will glow brightly for maybe 20 minutes to half an hour, but it quickly fades out and becomes difficult to see within an hour or so. The alarm isn't very loud either but I never use that feature so it doesn't really matter to me. Other than those minor issues I'm very happy with it so far.
