Awesome Seiko for a Great Price,
This review is from: Seiko Men's SNN233 Stainless Steel Watch (Watch)
4/17/2012: First things first. This watch is not indestructible, nor does it claim to be. I have no intentions of diving or doing anything extreme in this watch. I have a $30 Timex for that.
With that out of the way, I love this watch. My wife got it for me for an anniversary. The band is a gunmetal color. Large face but not ridiculous like some I've seen which should make this watch remain fashionable through the years. Easy to set up. Works exactly like it's supposed to. Removing links was very easy and there is an additional adjustment on the enclosure. The chronograph is easy to use and doesn't bog down with unnecessary features. The hour markers and hands glow in the dark and seem to fade in a reasonable amount of time. Nice looking quality watch for a great price.
Update 3/4/14: For the last two years, I've worn this watch almost everyday. It's taken a beating and held up very well. Some wear on the clasp. My only real issue is the crystal. I believe it has the Hardex material, rather than a sapphire crystal. I got a scratch near the between 12 and 1 and it is quite deep and constantly noticeable. I asked a watch repair place at my local mall and the cost to replace is $60. Still, a great watch and my favorite.
