After owning this watch for nearly a month and wearing it everyday I can now speak to the durability and timekeeping of this watch. Still not a scratch on the crystal and only a couple of nicks on the clasp, which only I would ever know about so no big deal. During the first month, I've found it to run about 12-15 seconds fast per week. Some reviews indicate that after a while these automatics will start to run slow so maybe this will change. Unless you require your timepiece to be precisely synchronized to Atomic time, the timekeeping is absolutely acceptable for most people's day to day needs. I am still as satisfied with this watch as the day it arrived!
I never immersed it --- did not dive or even shower with it on.
Last weekend I was fixing my lawn sprinklers and the Black Monster got wet by incidental splashing. I thought nothing of it as it wasn't even really wet. The next day the crystal fogged in the dead center. Today (a week later) the crystal cleared.
I'm thinking the stem seal must be going bad. How else could dampness enter?
As for long-term reliability, it's never failed, although it does quit running if you don't wear if for the weekend. The crystal and stainless band and case still look great, even after the general knocks a big, thick watch suffers.
It runs fast, gaining several minutes a week.
Its calculator and texting functions are really inferior, however.
I also own an "Orange Monster". I've had it for 15 years and it has performed flawlessly since day one.
Another thing is that I think there are two versions of this watch. One has a Japanese movement and the other has a Malaysian movement. From what I have read there is really not that much of a difference since Seiko makes all of their products in house in Japan.
For all you divers out their that are looking for the ISO 6425 standard. I don't think that the Malaysian movement has it. The reason I say this is because the watches that meet this standard are stamped with L3. The one I received did not have this stamp. I have looked around on the internet and all of the Malaysian movements from Seiko don't have it. I don't do any diving and just like the look of the watch so it is not a big deal to me.
Overall a nice automatic watch and great lume.
