    This is not my first watch, but it is now my favorite. Seiko has several versions of the watch: with a black or blue dial, different colored bezels and metal or rubber bands. I got this one because the price was right, it had good reviews and I was not a fan of the blue dial. What I was looking for was a solar watch with a chronograph. The fact that it's a diving watch is a plus. These considerations basically left me 2 choices: Seiko or Citizen. Citizen's watches look great, but they are just more expensive than Seiko's. The closest Citizen solar chrono diver watch to this one was around $500, but it also featured depth measurement. However, the Seiko just looks nicer. I don't plan to dive to 600 feet anytime soon, but I will probably wear this watch everyday.
    When I opened the package the watch was already ticking, but it had to be reset. I set it to the atomic clock on the second and it is still accurate to within a second a couple weeks later.

    I would suggest paying a little extra for two day shipping. Think of it this way, you will get to have your watch for another week, so your watch will be a week newer than if you paid for economy shipping. Who wants to wait for something like this anyway?

    The rotating bezel is awesome. I use it about five times a day - I prefer to use it rather than the chronograph to time my 30 minute lunch break at work. I can't believe I wore watches that didn't have it - such a good feature. The chronograph is great, since the actual second hand is a stopwatch rather than the second hand. I always preferred watches that had a sub second hand, and this is the nicest sub second hand dial I have ever seen on a watch. It is big for a sub second hand and even has Luminova on it.
    Last night I tested the luminosity of the watch.

    I bought this as another addition to my SEIKO collection; I have other SEIKO divers (orange monster,additional 200 m SEIKO divers, etc.). My other solar powered watches are the citizen 300 meter, g-shock (atomic), as well as some others.

    This is by far the coolest of the bunch, in looks, quality vs. cost, and "wow" factor. Yeah, I'm a watch geek, and have around 30 watches, but you just can't beat this watch for value and quality.

    Dead on accurate (as most quartz watches are); solar charged; size, 200 meter depth rating, good lume, readable dial and registers, and a chronograph function no less! Even screw down chrono pushers!

    The only negative is the date window is rather small, and has a black background with white numerals. A little hard to read with older eyes.

    Other than that, you need this watch, you want this watch!

    This is my second Seiko watch and it is by far my favorite. The only thing I changed was the band to a military spec style, but only because I wanted to personalize it. This is my first time ever purchasing anything off of Amazon and definitely won't be my last. Everything went smooth and easy plus it showed up at my house the next day.

    (edit 3-9/2013)

    I've got an SSC017 and a few mechanical Seiko's. I'm a Seiko fan.

    The watch I got was ok, but not great.

    First, the watch was "fulfilled by Amazon", but came in a very worn generic box, with a Seiko manual, but no warranty card. It has a "store" warranty. This is my major beef with buying any watch online. You need to be totally careful, and I thought I was... but... a real box, the correct book (mine was Seiko but for a different non-solar model) and the warranty would have been nice. I may send it back.

    As for the watch itself, it appears ok. The band is terrible. Too stiff. Does not sit on the wrist well.

    I've got a Strapcode super engineer in all black on the way for this watch. If decide to send the watch back, I'll order another like it, but from a more reputable source.

    (the edited part)

    I decided to keep it.

    More about the watch. Grey market being what it is... sigh.

    The watch is wonderfully accurate. Off by about -4 seconds in three weeks. I like that. Found a place on a window sill that that I can charge both the SSC021, and the SSC031 I've got. The "031" is the Pepsi blue/red version of this same watch. Its off by about -7 seconds, still well within expectations.

    The Seiko rubber diver's strap is very stiff. Thats, I tossed it. Instead, I've got a StrapCode super engineer in black. Very comfy, also very stylish. The SSC021 is a mix of black and chrome, with a lot of black accents. The black band compliments it, yet.. the super engineer bracelet (like a flat link Jubilee, sort of) has enough highlights from its many angles that it looks very nice. I get a lot of questions and compliments on this watch.

    It works nice and accurate. It's my first order from amazon. It delivered smoothly. The watch glows green in dark to make the time display visible. Awesome!

    This is a really good watch, especially for the money. It's solid, well made and looks really good. The fit and finish are excellent and everything lines up the way its supposed to. The face is a great combination of traditional Seiko diver white on black with modernized with Rolex style luminous hour markers with metal rings. I've been wearing it in Afghanistan for a while and I don't even have any scratches on it. It's really accurate and the solar power is definitely a plus because there are no shops I would trust to change the battery out here. The illumination is the best I've seen in a non-tritium watch. Just like others said, the band is no good and too narrow, so I put on a 22mm nylon NATO strap. The bezel is really smooth but not as tight as I would like, but it doesn't really move much on its own. The crown and chrono plungers don't dig into my hand and the coating doesn't show any signs of wear or scratching.

    This watch is a steal at this price and is the perfect combination of old school Seiko stainless case, updated but traditional looks with a high-tech solar movement and improved illumination. Buy it before the price goes up!
