2.0 out of 5 stars Inexpensive and not worth even that much, February 26, 2014
This review is from: Seiko Men's SNKL07 "Seiko 5" Stainless Steel Automatic Casual Watch (Watch)
I probably have 10 watches. Stem-winders, battery-powered, and automatic watches (like this one). Actually, this is a replacement for my favorite watch which was also a Seiko five automatic. My original Seiko five lasted for 45 years, and now looks fairly beat up, but was the most trouble-free watch I've ever had. I could never remember to replace dead batteries, so they would sit and corrode my watch. Not so with an automatic. There is no battery. This is the primary feature that sold me. The fact that it is automatically wound. The next most important feature is the incredibly luminous dial. I suppose I could have had my old Seiko five refurbished, but at $65, buying a new watch ought to be a no-brainer.

To me, the midnight blue dial is a thing of beauty. The weight and size of the watch are perfect for me. This watch is made in Malaysia, and has a clear display backing.

However, it does not run as long as my old Seiko if not on my wrist, the day/date indicators haven't always moved forward as they ought to, and when it does run for a prolonged period, it runs fast enough to require resetting every week or two.

I have gone back to the old Seiko. A watch is not a watch if it is not reliable. Yours could run flawlessly, but here, I am reviewing THIS watch.

two stars, rather than one, because your watch, when it arrives, might be flawless. I would hope so from a name like Seiko.
