Nice watch, functions great(a little fast),
This review is from: Seiko Men's SNXJ94 Automatic Goldtone Gold Dial Watch (Watch)I bought this same watch at a local watch shop for 95 dollars total. It's a nice watch for the price and you have to remember it's an automatic mov't and not as accurate as a quartz watch. I've been wearing my watch for 2 weeks and it runs fast about 1 minute per week. No problem just adjust the watch when it gets off time after a couple of weeks. I have no compalints about it, but I'm only going to give it 4 stars. I highly recommend the watch. It's a lot better that the watch runs fast instead of slow. Also remember you have to wear it for it to work properly. Don't just wear it for 2 or 3 hours then put it away and expect it to keep accurate time. I wear mine for at least 12 hours of the day or more. The reserve I believe is about 1 1/2 days from full wind to stopping. A great buy for an automatic watch.
I WOULD SAY DON'T BELIEVE ANY NEGATIVE REVIEWS ON SEIKO PRODUCTS, THEY HAVE A FINE REPUATION AND HAVE BEEN IN BUSINESS FOR OVER A HUNDRED YEARS. I AM A WATCH FANATIC AND HAVE OWNED AT LEAST 7 SEIKOS OVER THE YEARS GIVEN SOME OF THEM AWAY , 3 I GAVE AWAY SOME 15 YEARS AGO STILL WORK PERFECTLY AFTER HEAVY WEAR. THE 3 SEIKOS I'VE OWNED FOR 7, 9 AND 15 YEARS RESPECTIVELY ALL WORK FINE ALSO TO THIS DAY AND NEVER HAD ANY PROBLEMS WITH THEM. SURE THE WATCH IS NOT ROLEX, BUT WHO WANTS TO PAY 20 GRAND FOR SOMETHING YOU CAN BASICALLY HAVE THE SAME LOOK FOR UNDER A HUNDRED BUCKS. ANYWAYS MOST PEOPLE HAVE NO BUSINESS BUYING A REAL ROLEX UNLESS THEY ARE REALLY RICH, AND I DO KNOW FRUGAL PEOPLE WHO WEAR "CHEAP" WATCHES THAT IS WHY THEY ARE RICH. THE KINETIC MOV'T DID HAVE PROBLEMS WITH FIXING ACCORDING TO ONE WATCH EXPERT I TALKED TO THAT IS WHY SEIKO IS MOVING AWAY FROM THEM TO SOLAR AND REVIVING THE SEIKO 5 AUTOMATIC WATCHES. It's true I've seen this same watch in stores selling for 150 bucks or more. Amazon has one of the better deals online when it comes to watches
iF You want to compare this to a Swiss watch of similar quality I would say it's the Tissot PR 50 which costs at least twice as much as this seiko or more. The Tissot pr 50 automatic does beat the Seiko in the quality of the band, but everything else is the same in terms of accuracy of the mov't. But again you'll pay twice as much as more for something that is deemed "European" or "Swiss"
