The solid, stainless steel case has a glittering, polished, silver finish, in contrast to the jet black face, with only the 12 & 6 as numerals and the other numerals indicated by bars, that again, reflect the light, in striking fashion.
The wrist band has brushed steel links on both side with three rows of highly polished, stainless links in the middle. The contrast is more subtle in the wrist band, giving the watch even more of a sense of unique character.
The secure clasp of the wrist band is another fine feature: it has two bars on each side as the first lock and a fold down lever as the second lock (both are easy to engage).
Lastly, the button above the time/date set knob gives you the amount of reserve power in the battery with just one click, anytime you need to know. The back of the watch has a clear window that reveals the kinetic pendulum which charges the internal battery. The watch holds a maximum month of reserve power, and you can not overcharge the battery.
P.S. The price here is great, considering a list price of $375.
That's all I needed --- something basic to wear at work. At the same time, certainly, I wanted something attractive.
I knew I wanted a watch that did not rely on battery power. Too many times in the past I have bought watches for work and within a year or two I am at the jewelers having the battery replaced. I hate spending the time having that done.
I was looking at the Citizen Eco Drive watches, but they didn't look appealing until you got into the $200 price range. I did not want to spend that much for one of their watches. I believe the Eco Drive watches rely on light.
...then I looked at Seiko Kinetic watches. Now, Seiko has a reputation as being one of the best watch companies out there. I liked the idea that their Kinetic watches worked on the principle of body movement.
I read several reviews on Amazon and across other sites that sold this particular watch and was convinced it would be a good purchase. What amazed me is that Amazon was selling it for $132 while Macys and other watch stores were selling it between $300-$350. I know the list prices that Amazon puts on these watches means nothing, but I could actually see that other places were selling this Seiko for well more than double the price.
The watch arrived yesterday along with a bracelet adjustment kit that I purchased for under $6. Fitting the bracelet was very easy and I wore the watch to work for the first time today.
For a watch, it's as basic as basic can be. All I wanted was a face that was easy to read with a date window so I never would have to guess what date of the month it was.Read more ›
Ok, here is the update...I gave the watch to my husband for Christmas, thinking I was so smart to shop early. It turns out that the watch with all it's lovely features does NOT have a lighted dial, which he wanted. I 'assumed' all watches these days at this price had this feature, so it is my fault, but when I tried to return it, the 'window of returns' ended a whole month before Christmas. SO, the moral of the story is, PAY ATTENTION if you are gift shopping. Fortunately, he likes the watch other than the light issue, so we are almost happy with it, but I am removing a star, hoping to catch another unsuspecting shopper's attention.
