Like virtually all automatic Seiko watches with the common "7S26" components, the watch keeps very acceptable time, perhaps drifting by a few seconds +/- per day.
The watch will run down if not worn for 40+ hours. Not wearing the watch an average of 8 hours/day or not storing it flat on its back can also cause more drift in accuracy than usual.
It's also not possible to stop the second hand when setting the running watch to ensure time is perfectly accurate down to the second -- this can be done with battery-operated Seiko diver watches.
Check out the battery-operated, quartz-movement Seiko divers if virtually perfect timekeeping is needed and a watch won't be regularly worn. Battery replacement / 200m waterproofing can run pricey on those when needed, however. (It should be noted that Seiko recommends standard checks/maintenance on the automatics every 2 years or so, and similar pricey waterproofing concerns could be encountered there, too.)
If a watch is worn regularly/daily and timekeeping within a minute is generally acceptable (and someone wants to test their luck with being one of those who can reportedly go into the decades with a watch being just fine without battery replacement / new waterproofing), the classic automatic Seiko divers like this do the job just fine.
Hopefully someday Seiko explores their own solar line of watches once again. For the time being, those seem to have become their Pulsar line of diver watches, which supposedly can last 180 days on a single charge....
In short, if you are looking for a well priced diving watch that will grab peoples attention. You cannot go wrong with this watch, or Seiko in general. And also, a rule of thumb, it doesn't have to say "Swiss Made" on the dial to be a good watch. Have a nice day!
I recently took the watch on a diving trip. I am glad I had it! My dive computer actually BROKE while on a dive. I didn't fear, though, because I had my watch on. I used the bright yellow Seiko to perform my safety stops on the way up. The yellow face and glow in the dark strips really allow you to tell the time in any condition. We dove to a max depth of 75 feet, and the watch is still going strong.
The one issue I have had with this watch is that, as mentioned, I am on the computer a lot. My wrist may not get a lot of action throughout the day. The first couple weeks, I had problems with the watch stopping (as it gets its power from the winding motion of the wrist). I solved this problem by just shaking the watch for about 30 seconds every morning before I put it on. So far so good.
