A luxurious profile in all goldtone steel, this Seiko dress watch features self-winding automatic movement, so you'll never need to change a battery. The large steel case is showcased on a handsome and durable steel link bracelet finished with a foldover clasp. The gold dial offers three-hand function with luminous black and gold hands, luminous markers, and a highly legible day and date display at the three o'clock hour. An off-center crown accents the case, and an attractive fluted bezel lends a touch of distinction. A sophisticated addition to any man's wardrobe, this Seiko watch is rated water resistant to 30 meters.
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.

My complaints about the watch are: first, that the bracelet sucks, like most 5s. It is made with folded steel links, weighs absolutely nothing, and the clasp feels really cheap. And second, that it can't be manually wound. I replaced the bracelet on mine with a Hadley Roma solid link President style bracelet (the lug width is 20mm, in case you want to copy me.) and it looks and feels 100% better and I love wearing it around.
This Seiko has an automatic mov't [7s26] that is used in numerous Seiko Divers and other watches.
It is a tried and true movement and exceedingly reliable. You will need to either wear it every day or have a watch winder to keep the movement going if you do not want to have to set the time and date every time you use it.
Now as for the case, dial and bracelet, I do not know how Seiko can sell this absolute beauty of a watch for this low price.
It is a beautifully designed and exceptionally well made watch with an automatic movement that would cost many times more were it a Swiss or German product.
Get it and you will love it.
more brass-tone) because Seiko is a reputable brand and the price represents
an extraordinary saving. However, for seniors like me (I’m 82 and long for the
days when a single on-and-off knob made something work), this watch might add
to irascible doubts that all technological advances are admirable except to
those born with 1010101011 brain wiring.
I didn’t realize that “automated” means you don’t have to wind up the watch--
which is not a grand improvement to me because I’ve never found winding a
watch for a few seconds a strenuous endeavor. And straightaway I was
annoyed to find it necessary to read a 7-page manual before even setting
this watch. (To be fair, I have also received a 10-page Sony clock-radio
manual and an 84-page manual for a Panasonic portable telephone.)
The Seiko manual is printed in what appears to be one-point type; besides
my regular reading glasses I had to use my jumbo magnifying glass. The first
instruction was to find a “calibre number” on the back of the watch with
which to select the proper instructions for setting and starting.
But the caliber number was too small for me to read even with my
magnifying glass. Taking a chance, I guessed the number and moved
on to setting the date and time with a 2-step process of pulling out
the “crown” (winder, I presumed) two stops. Apparently it can be
pulled out only in increments of nano-fractions with no guiding sound
or feeling. My success of setting both the date and time mysteriously
occurred after 48 minutes of dedicated effort and my entire repertoire
of curse words including those in Spanish and Turkish.
Now triumphant, I wore my watch until bedtime. But I didn’t put it on again
until the next evening—and it had stopped. Reason: the battery is charged
by movement of your wrist, and after that movement stops for I don’t know
how long, the watch stops.
I reset it in only ten minutes. Now I wear it whenever I can. and it has proved
to be a worthy possession.
