Great styling and price,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Seiko Men's SNE032 Two-Tone Stainless Steel Solar Watch (Watch)
I love the styling of this watch. I had a similarly styled non-solar Seiko watch for perhaps 15-20 years, but the date stopped working and the jeweler said that with the cost of replacing the movement, I'd be better off buying a brand new one. Given the low price on Amazon relative to retail, this was true.
The watch came charged just fine out of the box with full instruction manuals (except that the Seiko manuals oddly don't tell you how to remove the links) - be sure to look for the "arrow" on the links closest to the clasp (those are the links that seem to be removable) and push the pins in the direction of the arrow. It helps to buy the SE Link Remover tool on Amazon for a few dollars at the same time you buy the watch specifically designed to remove links. So far (less than two weeks), the watch seems to keep good time and with a white background, it's very easy to read. I know from reading reviews that a lot of folks like the dark gray dials in this line, but many complain that they can't read it in low lighting. Not an issue with this one.
