    I bought this watch several months ago and have been pleased with it since. It is quality as opposed to those watches you pay less for. One would naturally expect that but in this day and age paying more does not always equal more quality, but in this case it definitely does. The watch is heavy, and the strap is long enough for most any size wrist (no skimping on strap length) and rugged. In fact, this watch is probably made to wear underwater outside the wet/dry suit but it looks great above water in everyday life! I'm thinking already of buying the same watch in the other color (I have yellow and it is impressive, but it comes in another color as well--that's how much I like it).

    This is the exact same as the Seiko SKX173, but that one has a black face, not yellow, and usually sells for $10-$12 less.

    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....

    I had been looking for another diver for some time. Because of the price range I shop in and my prior experiences with Seiko, I decided I'd give them another call. Why yellow? It is a beautiful shade of yellow, not a pale or pastel, but a hot yellow. The rubber strap really makes the yellow stand out and is quite comfortable. This watch is one of the lightest divers I've ever owned, this may be due to the rubber strap instead of the SS bracelet. The SKX line of divers from Seiko are a classic design that employ some of the same technology that has been used since the 60's and 70's. The watch is comfortable and the rubber strap keeps it put. The 7s26 workhorse may not be the most accurate, but it is robust and will last for many years without maintenace. Be wary of watches that are just 200m rated without the words, scuba or diver. Usually the "diver" connotation means that the watch has passed a special ISO test compared to a weaker ISO test for depth rating. Long story short, they are tested to 125% of the rated depth.

    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 bought this watch two months ago, and I absolutely love it. The face is not too big, not too small. The band is tough, yet it does not get in my way. I am on the computer all day. One of my main criteria for a watch was that the band was not too thick, as thick/metal bands really push on my wrist when I'm typing.

    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.

    This is a handsome watch. In real life it seems a little more yellow than I was expecting from the pictures of it on the computer screen--I thought the watch face was going to be a pale lemon yellow, and it's a little more vibrant than that--but I still like it. It runs a little fast--so far, it seems to gain about a minute a week--but that's par for the course for many automatic watches. I still prefer not to worry about replacing a battery. The band is very comfortable. The bezel moves easily and has a precise feel to it. (You can't take that for granted--I just returned a much more expensive watch because you almost needed a pair of pliers to move the bezel and it felt cheap.) The hands and markers glow brightly for quite a while after you move from sunlight into a dark place. If you wake up at four in the morning, often you can still see a faint glow, just enough that you can still tell the time, so that's good. If you like Seiko watches, automatic watches, diver's watches, and/or colorful watches, I would recommend this one to you. (No worries, the yellow will look great against the blue sleeve of your buttondown Oxford shirt.)
