    There is no question that when it has came down to watches, Seiko has been the leader at making definitive watches for all ages young and old, male and female. Yet, many people have often overlooked the Seiko 5 automatic watch line, while everyone has savored their traditional quartz, Cotura chronographs, Seiko Solar, and their Kinetic rechargeable quartz battery watches. But there are still automatic watches that handle well. This Seiko 5 SNK789 watch handles mostly well, with a simple and elegant design that is simple and contemporary. Yet, there are a few flaws on the watch. The first is that is has a lower water resistance level than advertised. It only has 30 Meters (100 Feet) of water resistance, not 100 Meters of water protection (330 Feet as advertised on Amazon.) The second one is that it can be very rough to pull out the crown to reset the time than most other Seiko watches. Still, you do get mostly well a nicely showcased and simple silvertoned watch for its price. I just wish there was a bit more with this model from Seiko, but you do get a nice watch for what its worth.

    The Seiko 5 series of watches are a welcome addition to a line of watches that has a storied past and a bright future. The Seiko 5 SNK789 is a great watch that has been featured on the watch blog hodinkee.com. I bought this watch to add to my growing collection and I have enjoyed the watch for almost 3 months now.

    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.

    I purchased this watch for my father for his birthday. He likes simple yet attractive watches. This watch certainly is that. I was very impressed with the finish of the watch. One review stated that this watch was too shiny and all polished stainless. This is not true. This watch has a very nice brushed stainless finish with nice polished accents. The size of the watch is perfect for my father. He has a very small wrist and after removing four links the watch fit perfectly. I must add that sizing this watch was a snap. The pins were very easily removed. This watch is very light. I sort of expected this automatic to be heavier. I was pleasantly surprised how light the band and watch are. The clear window on the back of the watch is a nice touch. It's pretty cool to see the movement as you can. Another reviewer stated that the watch did not come with instructions. It does... This watch was brand new in a nice Seiko presentation box with instructions. The watch comes on a little pillow. Another reviewer stated that the day was in Spanish. The day is easily adjusted from Spanish to English.

    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.

    I bought this as a cheap back up watch for my wife. She wears it if she is going downtown with her mom to a show or some other less friendly area. We own several Rolex and Omega automatics. They stay on winders and this one also stays on her watch winder. It runs very slow ever since we got it and unfortunately will not be worth the money to have it adjusted. Normally I would say someone wasn't moving their wrist enough since this can not be fully wound by hand but, we have this on a winder and it still will lose large chunks of time. I am typically a Seiko fan and have a new black monster for my cheap back up but, I don't know if these are "seconds" or just not going through QC.

    I bought a similar Seiko 5 watch for my father when I was in Dubai International Airport from the local gift shop. I paid 67 dollars for it and I was so impressed by the quality of the fit and finish that I wanted to buy one for myself whenever I would get the chance. Mind this, I wore it around town and I banged my wrist into doors or walls since I am a little clumsy. But my father's watch was a champ and didn't have any scratches on it. I have to add this fact that my father's watch was made in Japan and it was written everywhere; on the winding wheel, on the the clasp and also on the dial.

    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.
