I have two criticisms: At this price point, it should have a sapphire, not Hardlex, mineral crystal. And the bracelet is fine except for the cheap clasp, the same thin, almost aluminum-like clasp that is used on the venerated Seiko Black Monster. Eventually I will spend 70 or so on a 20mm Super Engineer II bracelet to upgrade my Sumo.
But I still recommend this overall excellent watch. If you're looking for a bold automatic diver in this price bracket and you want a sapphire crystal, you might look at the Orient M-Force series (Orient is owned by Seiko).
If you want a sapphire and similar bold look, you might look at the more expensive Orient Saturation Diver.
Replacing my Seiko Sports 100 diver of 34 years-still works fine- I get it cleaned and polished every 10 years- plenty of soakings in the Gulf, Atlantic, lakes and springs-rarely took it off, and plenty of serious abuse. Broke the band so i sighed for a moment and then bought the SEIKO ProspEx diver scuba SBDC001. No regrets. PS-the shipping said 1 month from Japan, I received it in 4 days.
Looses about 3 min a week since the first week. Still really like the watch.
It's probably all of the above. For me it is mostly the sculpted shape that makes this watch a gorgeous looking wrist hugger that wears comfortably. If you are in the market for a dressy automatic diver: look no further. You found the watch you need. And for anywhere around 400 USD this is a real steal.
