Case is definitely waterproof swimming at normal depths in freshwater and doesn't easily fog, I can't comment on its diving abilities but my previous "100 Meter" watch couldn't make it 4 feet into a stream without water getting into it and I needed a watch that could handle daily inundation in streams and rivers during fieldwork so I went overkill and bought this.
It looks amazing, fits very well (even on my admittedly small wrist) and I've gotten many compliments on it and I'm always proud to tell them it's a Seiko.
Has survived working outdoors 5 days a week and withstands heavy vibration from many miles of rocky dirt roads on an old dirtbike with less than supple suspension (doesn't dig into your wrist at all).
The crystal is tough and isn't easily scratched. And when it is eventually scratched, they aren't very deep or noticeable.
Lume is very bright when going from indoors to outdoors at night and entertaining to charge up under a lamp or flashlight and then watch it tick in the dark. It will fade after a few minutes but will stay legible for a while if your eyes are any good.
It's a bit pricey for what it is, it's definitely flawed but it is a gorgeous, purposeful and pretty darn tough.
The rotating bezel will not align perfectly at 12:00 which may bother your OCD a bit. This is a little ridiculous for a watch at this price point. (It bothers me but not enough to worry too much over it plus I try not to think about it.) The clicks are solid and satisfying but I really wish it lined up..
I found a small flek of white paint or glow paint inside my case upon delivery which isn't noticeable at first glance but is most certainly visible and does bother me when I look at it. (I might just be OCD but I appreciate a watch for it's mechanical intricacies and the mesh between beauty, simplicity and purpose. This ones flaws are a bother but I suppose nothing is perfect..)
It runs slow by ~ 2 minutes per week which can be a problem if you don't remember to keep it in check.
It will need to be re wound or shaken in this case instead of stirred (ha because "007" ok cool, never mind keep reading..) if you set it by the wayside for more than two or so days.
The screw in crown is well grooved but fits very closely to the watch case and can be QUITE a struggle to unscrew and adjust the time or date if you're paranoid and over-tighten it as I've been known to do on more than one occasion..
If you need a tough watch to use every day that isn't fluffed up cheap trash (ahem Swiss Legend), isn't a gaudy tacticool or 50mm+ bad fashion statement and you actually need it to be waterproof buuuuut you are also endowed with discerning taste and refuse to get a hideous digital timepiece then this is the watch for you!
Yes it has a few drawbacks that keep it from obtaining perfection, but I'm willing to accept that for a watch that I can strap on and not worry what I do with it on, not freak if it's lost or stolen like a luxury brand (though I'd be very upset because I do love this watch) and a timepiece that I look down at and genuinely admire how beautiful it is on a daily basis, even after many months of ownership and daily use.
It's not for everyone but that's why there are so many options out there!
I hope this review was helpful and guides you to the right decision in timekeeping.
Thanks for hanging in there.
The watch has some heft to it thanks to the copious amounts of stainless steel but articulating the bezel is easy enough and it does indeed wear well on the wrist as many reviewers say. I have a 6.5-ish inch wrist and this feels just on the edge of too big for me without going over. If you have smaller wrists there is a mid-size model that is 38mm that might work better for you: SKX013.
As for my experience so far with this watch, I'm in love. The chaptering is spot on, the finish is beautiful, and the lume is simply outstanding. As many people have said, the pictures do not do it justice. The depth of the watch face to the bezel is striking and the comfort of the case rounded around the crown is delightful.
All in all this is a truly fantastic watch from Seiko and likely to be one of many .. just after I finally take this one off.
The band in the pictures is the "INFANTRY 5 Rings Genuine Leather Black Brown Watch Strap Band Stainless Steel Buckle" in 22mm.
To look better with age as they gain a little patina. They also look great on NATO, zulu and leather straps. I haven't grabbed a bracelet yet but that's another way to go. These watches seem to have a cult following and punch above their weight in terms of looks and value. No, they're not a Tag or a Rolex but these can be worn in the garage, mowing the lawn and to work. People seem to really like it when I wear it and I'm often asked to take it off so they can look at it. It's an automatic watch and will stop ticking after about 48 hours of non wearing. If this bothers you then grab a watch winder. I just set mine and pop them on. Easy.
One of the cool things about this watch is that it's so popular that there are so many ways to modify it with aftermarket parts. I'm going to make mine into a hand winding watch to reinforce the automatic movement. I found out this is possible through massive amount of information on the watch boards for this model. Love it! Also, how tight would this look with a orange minute hand?? Done.
If you're hesitating on pushing that button, just do it. It's totally worth it! This watch is a must have! She sleeps on my wrist tonight!
While on the small size it still fits my wrist very well. It's readable as is the day and date complication. Its easy to set the time know that it is a screw down crown. Love the decoration on the back case, once I put a NATO strap on it is when it really comes to life. The rubber strap os either to tight or to loose. A beautiful watch that can go about anywhere and serve it's purpose. Bezel rotates nicely and lines up as well. Buy a NATO strap at 22mm or something else cause you will be replacing it. Otherwise a very good watch and will get lots of wrist time.
