This is an automatic mechanical watch. Automatic watches do not operate on batteries; instead, they are powered automatically by the movement of the wearer’s arm. If the main spring in your automatic watch is not wound sufficiently, timekeeping may become less accurate. In order to maintain accuracy, wear the watch for 8 hours or more per day, or manually wind the main spring by turning the crown. When not in use, automatic watches may be kept charged with an automatic watch winder – a watch storage unit which may be purchased separately.See all Product description

Secondly - I don't wear "dress to impress" watches with 4 inch dials and 24 complications I'll never have a use for. I'm generally more of a function over form kind of guy. I've got some classy looking watches, but they are still pretty simple tell the time kind of watches. In that regard this watch excels.
I bought this watch to wear while riding the ambulance as an EMT. I needed a functional watch, simple, easy to read, with a clear second hand for use when taking vitals. My prior watch was a quarts movement Casio that died for unknown reasons maybe a year after buying it. I had plenty of mechanical watches that have served me faithfully for years, but none were chronographs (too expensive). I was saving up for a low end Hamilton watch ($600) when I stumbled across this Seiko 5. $60 for an automatic movement Seiko?? that got my attention. I read the reviews, was won over, and decided to give it a shot.
- Price - This is a hell of a nice watch for $60, it would be a hell of a nice watch for $120.
- Dial - clear, easily marked, easy to read.
- Size - As i said, I'm not trying to overcompensate with a giant frying pan sized watch. The watch could be easily viewed as "unisex" being on the smaller side for men, or larger side for women. I have small wrists, and so it suits me just fine. The watch itself is surprisingly thin for an automatic movement, which is nice for avoiding being obtrusive.
- Crown location - I LOVE the 4 oclock position of the crown. I am very active and use my hands for work and play, moving the crown from the 3 oclock to the 4 oclock is like magic on the back of my hand.
- strap "loops" - The small loops around the watch band to retain the leftover strap end and keep it from flopping around are METAL!!! this is a delightful touch on a rugged and functional watch. I often sweat through, or snag and break, all the flimsy and cheesy leather loops that are often stitched or glued. These metal bands are fantastic.
- durability - I am a dog walker and EMT, I am known for my mantra "I broke it, can I have another?" I've been wearing this watch for a week strait, I have no scratches, abrasions, snags, or damage of any kind.
- accuracy - I set this watch a week ago, And it is within seconds of where I set it (checked by looking at when my iphone kicks over. It may be Malaysian built, but its definitely still a Seiko.
- color - Just a nerd thing, but I think its really cool to have bought this to use on the ambulance, and its the same blue color as much of my gear.
- The luminous indicators for the hours are all identical. It is common in most watches to make the 12 o'clock position a different color, or shape, to make it easier to orient the watch to tell the time in the dark.
- Date indicator - I don't really see this as a "con" but I'm including it as an observation. Because the date window includes English and Spanish dates, it has an odd characteristic that most wont ever see, but anyone wearing this watch for a night shift will want to keep in mind. The numerical date ticks over right around midnight (1st to 2nd, 2nd to 3rd, etc.) but the day of the week indicator lags a touch behind. If you have the watch set in English, On a sunday night, the English sunday (SUN) will tick over to the spanish sunday (DOM) around 1:15 am on monday morning. Then will tick over to the English Monday (MON) around 3 am.
- The strap - this is one place where I deviate from my function over form view. The watch band is the only thing about this watch that makes it "feel" like a $60 watch. Its a quality band, and will likely hold up to me for quite a while, but it just looks and feels cheap and cheesy. But then again its no big deal to buy a lovely steel or leather strap to install on the watch body. So I'm ok with it.
Conclusion - Thi
Here are the negatives: mine runs a little fast. I haven't timed it, but I would guess a little less than 30 seconds a day. Again, this is a budget automatic mechanical watch, buy a quartz movement if you must have better accuracy. The blue face is a darker blue than I expected, almost black in some lighting. I did not like the band.
Neither Pro or Con: it is a little small given current fashion. If you have large wrists, or are used to larger watches, this will look small. If you have smaller wrists, this may be exactly what you are looking for. The crystal is not the sturdiest, but again, you have to spend much more to upgrade.
All that said, this watch is a tremendous value at this price, and therefore gets 5 stars. This is my second one - I have a black one that still works, but I really wanted the blue one.
I swapped the band out for a thick leather band with white stitching. The watch looks awesome now. This is the band I have:
I swapped the buckle from the Seiko onto that band. (Google "dental floss spring bar removal" for the easiest way to get the original band off.)
I love everything about this watch: The size (not too big/thick/heavy, like many current watches), the clean understated simplicity of the design (at less than 2% of the cost of a Bremont Solo), the band (I wish I could buy this exact band as a replacement - I was looking for a replacement but hadn't found one yet when I lost mine), the color, the face, the timekeeping, the day/date, the more comfortable 4-o'clock location of the crown, and the cool glass back to see the inner workings. The stamping finish on the movement is the one of the only three things that sort-of tip off the lower price of this watch. (Interestingly, the finish on my new one is now much better than it was on my previous one, so apparently this bugged somebody at Seiko, too. But I'm an engineer, and nitpicky about this stuff...) The second thing is that the luminous material on the hands and face could stand to be a bit better, and the last is that the Hardlex crystal is pretty tough, but obviously, at this price point, not sapphire. I don't baby my watches - in fact, I tend to (inadvertently) beat the tar out of them, and this watch has proved to be quite good at handling real life.
The Seiko 5's have a very nice automatic-winding movement (no batteries!), and my previous one kept ridiculously good time - after settling in for a few months (I wouldn't recommend adjusting the timekeeping until after that even if you're the sort who tends to tweak watches), it was keeping time almost as well as a quartz watch or at least, a COSC chronometer - under 2 seconds a day! (I realize my new one is unlikely to be quite that good, but I can hope...) Seiko does not sell the 5 in the US, but buying it through Amazon gives you a valid US warranty - not that you're likely to need it. Seiko has always been known for great-quality mid-range and high-end watches (both quartz and mechanical), but the Seiko 5 series is proof that even their low-end mechanical watches are of extremely high quality. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
