The directions are surprisingly of no help in removing links which you are likely to need to do. There are a couple of U Tube videos (Google "adjusting Seiko titanium watch band" to find them) that tell you how to do this and are best to check out before trying to remove links. I was surprised just how many links I had to remove to make this fit. Usually my watches might be a little loose when first purchased and need one or two links removed but this would go half way up my arm unless I removed links. For someone with large arms this is great and actually a plus. Just set aside an hour and relax taking your time doing this and it will likely not be too terrible a task. After all you will probably only have to do this once. But I suggest you consider buying a set of watch repair tools and these are on Amazon at a low price. The one I got is at this link: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000T9VK56?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00 True they are not jeweler quality and you have to be careful not to break them but for occasional use they are very helpful. A few tips. While I found the U Tube helpful I did find it was tough to get the links removed. It took quite a bit of pressure and practice to remove the link bar. What I found helped was to use the hammer along with a flat head screwdriver in the grove toward the arrow and then needle nose to remove them. Putting back in was bit of a challenge and again the hammer was helpful. Once I figured it out it was still tough to get out and back in but easier than the first one! If you have the watch repair tools the pin remover will help take the pin out of the clasp to maker easier to remove links with band flat and also to make fine adjustment as it has e or four positions to adjust clasp slightly . This is not something would want to do more than once but fortunately once will be enough! Takes a little patience and the right tools but with those in hand you should be fine doing this yourself. If not it is probably worth going to a jeweler who has Seiko and pay them to adjust the band. I had to remove four links and adjust the clasp pin to make this fit properly. It is great now.
As for comments on feel of the watch as light....well, that is one of the virtues of titanium and one reason I bought this watch. Another reason is that titanium will not have the rust problems you may run into with other watches, especially if you live in a humid climate (as I do). I have several Timex watches that run great after many years of use but the stems tend to stick due to bit of rusting and I keep these for my yard work, sailing and other outside activities.
There are questions about whether this is battery operated....and it is. To me that is a plus as I own a number of watches from knock around to high end watches and I do not want to have to wear or wind them to keep them keeping proper time. I have one radio controlled watch and radio control clock plus cell phone of course to give me the atomic clock exact time to check my watches for accurate time keeping. As I keep them in a glass topped case I can check these to see how they are comparing in keeping time and adjust as necessary. I rotate wearing them depending on my activities so having battery operation is a plus vs other Seiko watches that require movement or winding or solar (or other) lighting. Those are fine watches and when in SE Asia during Vietnam I had a Seiko that worked this way and it was fine lasting me many years until it finally gave out after 25 years but then I was wearing it every day. Even in the heavy monsoon and humidity of the Mekong River area it worked great and kept perfect time. So I have owned Seiko watches for over 50 years and been pleased with them. This one seems no exception. If I find out otherwise I will come back and revise this review.
One item other reviewers have noted is that the day is in both English and Spanish. So whichever you want you need to read the directions on this carefully. I had trouble finding this even after seeing reviewer mention it was in the instructions. Well it is but it is not easy to find. The trick is that you set the day in the language you want and it will then skip the other language when it makes the change early in the morning. Ok, if you are up between 1 and 2 you might at some point see the other language show up until it cycles to the correct language. But unless you are a real night owl this will not likely be an issue. In any case you may learn the days of the week in the other language if you do not already know them!
On the whole this is a very classy watch at a good price and very happy to add it to my collection.
UPDATED - Seller did make contact and I shipped watch back to seller who fixed it, tested it to maintain time and date, which it did and returned it to me - Good to go - thanks to the seller for making the repair in a timely manner.
The SGG709 is my first titanium watch with a Hardlex crystal and I am very happy with its scratch resistance, definitely an improvement over their already tough stainless and non-Hardlex crystals of the past. As always I had to shorten the band but that's easily done by following YouTube instructions, none are included with the watch! Anyone with some hand skill and a couple easily available tools can shorten the band. I did it with a small screwdriver and a mechanic's pick. I really like the folding locking clasp and am glad they've kept it.
The face is blue-black with silver lines where numbers go, this has no numbers, fine with me. The sharpness and detail of all components is up to Seiko standards. The date proved easy to set once I realized that I just had to keep rotating the hands until the right day of the week came up. The day name is not set by reverse rotating the stem!
The dial is fluorescent but not as bright, or as bright as long, as some Seikos I have had, a minor point but an important one if you depend on your watch in the dark. I don't, some might. I set the watch to the national standard in CO on the first day and here it is two weeks later and I'm still within a second. I've gotten used to that kind of accuracy over the years.
The tag with the watch showed a list price over three times what I paid. I realize "list" price is a bit gimmicky, but I still think I got the watch at a bargain.
