I have been a loyal Seiko 5 automatic watch owner for years, but my wife wanted to get me a nicer, dressier watch. I knew this was going to be physically larger than my old watch, so I decided to go for titanium. And I love it. The watch feels like it is not even there. Excellent construction, looks great. The eco-drive light charging works very well, the chronograph is fun to play with, and the dials are very luminous at night. This watch had all the features I wanted. I had to take out two links, easy to do with a paperclip and hammer rather than buying the specialty tool.
