4.0 out of 5 stars Nice watch, band falls a bit short (imho), September 1, 2013

This review is from: Seiko Men's SNE102 Stainless Steel and Brown Leather Strap Solar Watch (Watch)
The top line pretty much says it. Pretty Seiko watch, got it at a substantial discount on Amazon. The solar aspect is pretty cool, never need to worry about changing a battery and according to Seiko it will run for several months on a full charge. Band is a shiney finish, cognac color, lighter and brighter than the picture, looks a bit cheap. Goes with the watch okay, but not great. Going to replace the band with something dark blue or black, and I think, with the dark blue face, it will be an attractive watch.

Don't worry about the day and date thing another reviewer mentioned, he's not setting it correctly. Day and date change every 24 hours, so when you set the time, you just have to be aware of where you are, AM or PM. For example if you want to set it at 8 AM, move 8 hours from where the day and date moves, 8 PM move 20 hours from where the day and date moves, and then like other Seiko watches I've had, day and date will change between approximately 10 PM and 2 AM. You don't want to set it at those times, because it might not work properly if you set it in the middle of a time when it normally changes. There are Spanish and English days, start on the one you want, it will move through the other one, but stop on the one you started with.

Yes I thought the same about the band being cheap looking when I got mine. 2 years later it's holding up fine. (Turns out I'm the cheap one for keeping the band 2 years) I was curious though if you did change to dark blue or black? I may consider doing the same with the new one I am ordering today.

It wasn't so much the quality of the original band, I didn't like the shiney cognac color, which I thought looked cheap. I got this band in dark blue, I think it looks good with the watch.

Black would probably work also.
