Setup & Comfort: C+
The watch itself is just beautiful to look at. From the eye-catching red seconds hand, to the simple yet subtle day-date window, this watch looks like more than a $65 piece. The bracelet is the Seiko oyster link bracelet with push button deployment clasp. The bracelet is one of my favorite parts of the watch; not too tight yet flexible and light. Speaking of weight this watch is very light and at times it can almost feel as though you aren't wearing a watch at all. The watch comes in at 36mm, which is very small by today's standards of 40mm, but the watch doesn't seem that small when placed on your wrist (especially my small wrist!). The lume of the watch is also quite good, it can be read in a very dark theater or room, depending on how long you've allowed it to be in direct light. Overall, a beautiful piece that catches the eye with subtleties.
The case is stainless steel and of simplistic construction. Flip the watch over and you get a great view of the 7s26c movement via the exhibition case back. This movement is the same one found in the impeccable Seiko SKX007, Seiko's premier diving watch. The 7s26c is a fairly reliable caliber with a -/+ of 5-26 seconds/day. Mine has clocked in at about 24 seconds fast, so every so often, if I haven't let the watch die, I reset it. Overall a great movement in a great watch.
This watch is beautiful and a good starter watch.Read more ›
All in all, for the money it couldn't be better. I'm extremely happy with this purchase. From what I could tell (testing in a a short time frame) the watch seems to keep accurate time, but we'll see how it performs over the long haul.
So, when I bought this watch from Amazon I was expecting a similar quality even though I knew this wasn't made in Japan. The example I received is very beautiful and well made. But the links and the metal aren't of the same caliber of my father's watch. It scratches very easily even though I didn't bang into anything. Plus the winding wheel has this smudged ink on the side of it. Its very annoying to look at and feels like some careless worker left a seal on it or something. It tarnishes an otherwise pretty image of mechanical sculpture in motion.
In conclusion, I would say that if you're a frequent traveler to the middle east of South East Asia don't bother buying it from Amazon. They charge way too much for an sub par product. But if you want to buy it from Amazon this is a good buy since I think this is a better watch than the Invicta Pro Diver. The Invicta's movement will only keep it powered for 24 hours without winding while this will go up to 40 hours.
UPDATE: November 21st 2008
I would like to add that buy this watch with the expectation of not getting accurate time.Read more ›
