An affordable luxury in gleaming two-tone steel, this Seiko watch adds a sophisticated touch to any attire. The barrel-shaped steel case showcases a round silver dial with black baton hands and indicators, a sweep seconds hand, and a gold-rimmed day/date window at the 3 o'clock hour. The hands and markers are coated with a luminescent material, making the watch face readable at night. The dial is capped with a scratch-resistant Hardlex crystal and framed by a stylish fluted goldtone bezel. A goldtone crown, placed at the 4 o'clock position, completes the look. The watch presents on a handsome and durable steel link bracelet, accented with goldtone center links and finished with a foldover clasp and safety. This Seiko watch features 21 jewel self-winding automatic movement, which means that it winds itself with the natural motion of your wrist and will never require a battery change.
In 1877, at the age of 18, Kintaro Hattori set up business repairing the Western-style clocks that were becoming increasingly popular in Japan. By 1892, Hattori was manufacturing his own clocks in a factory he called Seikosha, from the words "seiko" meaning "exquisite," "success," or "miniature," and "sha" meaning "house." The company grew and prospered, producing its first wristwatch in 1913 and launching the Seiko brand in 1924. Technological innovation has always been a driving force in the company's history. Key milestones include Seiko's introduction of the world's first quartz watch in 1969, and its successful launch, in 1988, of the Kinetic, the world's first battery-free watch with quartz accuracy. Recognized for its technological excellence, Seiko has provided timekeeping services for the Olympic Games and the World Cup Soccer Championships. Today, the Seiko brand continues to stand for state-of-the-art technology, as well as superior quality and refined design.

I am happy with this Watch and also with the reputation that Seiko had famously built in the past! I used to think that I had a chance to wear one of these watches back the time, when Seiko 5 was very expensive in most part of Pacific Asia countries. Seiko5 Automatic Watches are not only good looking, but also accurate time keeping machines. Since I was a little boy over 30 years ago, I looked at people including my grand father, my father who were wearing these watches everyday! The Seiko5 models, outlook style were differently built, but same high quality! And the feeling. I am going to buy three or four more, to make a wonderful and meaningful thanks giving gifts to my father, friends and cousins! Fast shipping too! I had mine delivered just two days after I hit the "Buy now with one click". You will never go wrong when making purchase decision with one of these watches. One last thing, they look and feel like Rolex-es!
Nevertheless, I gain my purchase confidence time after time with Amazon.com
But at the price I was able to purchase ($50) I am not arguing at all.
Self-winding/automatic watch is more expensive to manufacture than battery powered digital watch. All it will do is to keep time and at best day/date. But, it sure looks much better looking than run-of-mill battery powered watches.
That will never be an issue with this watch.
It weighs basically nothing. The case and crystal are reasonable, and the display back is a nice touch. The band, however, feels extremely flimsy and I hope will outlast its first impression. The watch wears smaller than its 38mm would indicate, so if you enjoy a smaller watch, this fits the bill. It looks quite nice, but the illusion dissipates quickly when you pick it up.
My last watch was a Citizen automatic (never had problems keeping accurate time). I would not recommend this watch if you want accurate time. If all you want is to have the most elegant and beautiful watch around, buy this watch.
It's funny because I thought the OBJECTIVE/PURPOSE of a watch was to keep accurate time. I guess that you live and learn...
I have had this watch for over a week now and it keeps perfect time. My other two watches are an OMEGA Constellation automatic and a SEIKO quartz battery powered watch.
is simple and the self-winding desighn means no maintenance. I set the time to the National Bureau of Standards radio
standard and it stays right on time to the second!
