I wanted a GOOD watch, but didn't want to spend an arm and a leg. I have always liked Seiko and I love automatic watches. I hate replacing batteries. This is nice, seems to keep good time and looks nice, although my wife said it looks like an old man's watch. I would have to agree, it does look like my dad's watches.
I guess I didn't read the description as well as I should, my major complaint is the size. It is a little smaller faced than the rest of my watches, but I can get used to it. The other slight complaint is the band, it seems pretty cheap. I really shouldn't complain, I did only spend $60.00 on the watch.
As a whole, it is a very nice watch for the money. It looks good, it is a Seiko and is has a very nice price point.
NEUTRAL: Non winding movement. I knew this going in so it was not that big of a deal for me. To wind the watch you have to shake it; you cannot wind it at the crown so if you do not wear it all the time then it will likely be dead when you put it on. The display caseback is nice but he movement is un-decorated and rather ugly so I do not really see the point of it.
NEGATIVE: The bracelet. The bracelet is where Seiko saved there money on this watch. It is ugly and jangles. Do yourself a favor an purchase a nice leather or metal 20mm band to replace the one that comes installed on the watch. I put a black leather NATO strap on it and it looks amazing.
NOTE: I bought this watch a year ago for $65 on Amazon. As of 8/15/16 Amazon now has it listed at $115! For $65 this watch is a steal. At $115 you can find a much better watch.
The Luminous markings get charged by sunlight and are extremely bright when you first come indoors, but after a few hours they fade to nothing. I had great hopes for the night-time readability of the markings but without the old radioactive paint it is not going to happen.
The band has the ball on a post lock with side release buttons-a very nice feature!! Lume is good and brighter than my old 0040 diver. The glass back would fit on a 0040 diver but the strap would not, it has a weird in between size that won't fit on a 7n43-8a39 quartz dressy watch either. I own several Seiko watches and they all seem to have differently sized case lugs! The strap had enough links to almost go around my bicep so unless you have very fat wrists you'll be fine.
The crown is non-screw down, but if you canabalize this watch to put this movement into an old 7s26-0040 diver you can reuse the old 0040 stem and it fits into this movement. It also has the usual outer black plastic ring around the movement so it's a direct plop in replacement for many old watches.
If your not buying this watch to just get the movement, you're getting a really, really great deal on a fantastic and handsome watch that straddles diver looks and dress watch slimmness (compared to the beefy Seiko divers of the 1990s / 2000s). Sort of in between, but not really good for water since the crown doesn't screw down. I'm thinking of ordering another one actually!
BTW: I ordered this watch at 7:30pm Thursday and it arrived to Detroit at 5pm Friday!!
Summary: damn fine looking watch with the 3rd (and most current) generation/version of my favorite movement delivered fast and cheap. Probably one of my favorite purchases in a long time!
Also, since it looks like a diver but isn't quite so chunky (but it's definitely not as slim as a dress watch) this would make a great 'boyfriend watch' for a female wrist. Plus this won't break the first day since it's a Seiko.
I have owned this watch for less than a day so I don't know about durability. I believe the b version had a problem with hairsprings getting snagged, but the c fixes that. Hopefully it'll be like the A version: a decade-and-a-half before any service needed and very reliable.
