I learned a hard lesson when dealing with local practitioners trying to make adjustment to the bracelet links. Don't do it! These business' sell watches, they don't fix them. One guy even took a hammer to the link pin and crushed it like a pretzel. I grabbed my watch and got the hell out of there. You do the same. My solution was to buy a nice ZACRO tool from Amazon and did my own bracelet link pin repair. It works very well. A hammer is never needed in band link pin replacement - if a jeweler approaches your new Seiko watch with a hammer, run out of there.
My other Seiko, SNA061 runs beautifully after 15 years of service, but I will send it to New Jersey for overhaul. Got SNA061 back from overhaul; new crystal and the standard $109 checkup, and she's also running spot on, in two months, only 7 seconds slow. I'll double check that later, it's steady now, maybe I didn't set it exactly.
I set this one carefully with WWV when I opened the box. The watch was running when I took it out of the box. So far after 5 months the time is still less than 1 second from exact with WWV. All functions: time, stop watch, date, 24 hour clock face, screw down crown, are correct and running perfectly. The date window is small but I can read it when I need to.
The watch is larger and heavier than my other Seiko's which was my original question mark when I ordered it. Other reviewers gig'd the weight issue, so I had apprehension. But weight is absolutely no problem. I wear a wrist watch 12 hours a day, except showers, so I can forget I am wearing this beauty.
I have been having a wrist watch argument with myself lately, which to buy, Seiko or Rolex. Since I can afford a Rolex now, I thought it would be a no brainer. But every time I think I am on track for a Rolex, Seiko offers a better value, quality, function, and cost, which brought me to SSC017.
My business acumen keeps deciding Seiko is a better value. Seiko management, I'm sure has all this calculated out. Besides, Rolex prices are all over the map, so I feel defensive when I contemplate a new Rolex watch. How do I know a Rolex is not a knock off - and for $8,000? I decided finance wise, to wait until someone else buys me a Rolex with their money.
Seiko is pulling me back from the precipice of buying a Rolex. As a matter of fact, I believe Rolex in now becoming second best in head-to-head competition with Seiko on quality and accuracy. Maybe Rolex is for prestige only of Hollywood numb skulls. Pilots like them.
The watch is beautiful and I would recommend it to friends and family.
As a watch for snorkeling, it's perfect. In spite of my worry over it's weight, I didn't notice it at all once I was in the water. It's not that heavy of course. It's just heavy compared to my other watches. The design info printed on the dial is "Diver's 200m." This would seem to claim that it is a true dive watch, but the literature claims only that it is water resistant to 200m. Bona Fide dive watches are individually tested to ISO standards, which is an expensive process and would likely double the cost of the watch, but I feel like this watch could easily resist failure at depths of 120 feet or more, which is the deepest that most SCUBA divers will ever encounter. At $200, it's not much risk anyway, so I wouldn't worry about using it for diving. Evidence to this is the beefy screw down crown, and the effective lock rings on the chronograph buttons that completely prevent them from being pressed underwater, provided that you remember to apply them before diving.
The watch is very accurate, of course. It's a quartz watch so why wouldn't it be? I don't know, but I have had some that weren't so accurate. After one month, it's gained about one second, maybe. Also, the chronograph when running has a very nice sweep second hand motion. The indices are so tiny that I'm not sure anyone will be using it for split second timing, but the distinction is there. It will registers to 1/5 of a second.
In summary, if you're in the market for a relatively inexpensive dive style watch with a sophisticated style, or even if you aren't, pull the trigger on this one. It'll be a welcome addition to your collection.
