i've been wearing a casio analog/digital sport watch, but the thing was a pain in the ass to adjust, and after several years started to lose its accurate time keeping. have always liked seiko watches and own several dressier seikos. this watch looks very nice on the wrist, is easy to read, and most importantly to me easy to adjust. strap is on the thin side but ok, and easy to replace if needed. overall very happy with the watch, and would recommend
Great looking watch. The black coloring on the case is very well done, and the band looks sharp. Only other comments would be that the blue shading on the bezel and chrono dials is a bit darker and more subtle than is depicted in the product photos. Also, when flexing your wrist it it sometimes possible to actuate the stopwatch buttons. That said, it's a good-looking watch that keeps time well.
The blue dial is actually a dark blue and at first I thought it was all black but when put at an angle to light can see a deep, deep blue. I was going to originally return it but the person I gave it to absolutely loves it just like it is. GREAT looking watch!!
This is a really attractive watch, as it's hard to find the steel around the watch face in black along with black band and face. Nearly all watches leave this part stainless or brushed for contrast but in this watch I think the black on black adds to the sporty feel and look. The blue around the tachymeter rim is subtle until in the right light, then it stands out more, the same for the dials but it provides just enough contrast to add some depth to the face. I have several watches with my favorites being a Citizen, Hamilton, and Tag Heuer, but this one brings something different and a more casual/sporty look in my opinion as it draws just enough attention but not too much, at a very reasonable price also. Please note that on the Seiko website they list this is a sapphire crystal face (not glass) which makes the value even more impressive. The only reason I didn't give a full 5 stars is that I wish the band didn't taper in width, but this is very popular with sporty-ish watches and I'm sure a replacement band wouldn't be hard to find. But it's a very comfortable wear and I'm more than satisfied with my purchase.
