This is a replica watch...
on April 5, 2017
OK, I received the watch thinking it was going to be somehow similar to my other automatic watch, a Hamilton Jazzmaster. I was disappointed. The watch looks good but its too lightweight. Also I am really baffled with the packaging. The SEIKO gift box (with a label "box made in China") looks too cheap and there was no instruction manual inside from SEIKO. There was only a single piece of paper (glossy type, folded) with no SEIKO logo and instructions for a quartz, automatic and chronograph watch. The packaging did not include any warranty papers either. I know you can't really compare a Hamilton with a SEIKO automatic watch but I did expect the SEIKO one to look more genuine. I have older SEIKO automatic watches from the 70s and 80s (inherited from my grandfather) but all of them look more "expensive" and are heavier. Is this a genuine SEIKO watch or not? I am not sure. I would think twice buying again from this seller.
A few more comments after a more detailed review... The watch was supposed to be manufactured in Japan. This is not indicated anywhere on the watch or in the packaging. The absence of an official SEIKO instructions manual and a warranty card indicate this is probably a replica watch...I do not recommend buying this product from this seller.. I have attached a few BN pictures of the watch, the packaging and instructions leaflet..
