shining new addition to seiko line,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Seiko Men's SNE109 Stainless Steel Solar Dive Watch (Watch)
This solar-charging quartz dive-style watch will be a fine sports timepiece for anyone who wants superior water resistence and timing accuracy combined with shiny good looks. The SNE-109 is 42mm across and 11mm thick, with a rounded, streamlined, polished case that puts this watch in the dress-sport category, not the clunky monster class--Large enough to be current and stylish, but not ostentatiously overpowering. The dial color is more pale orange than bold, and the luminous material on the hands and markers is right there with the best of Seiko's divers.
Downsides? The rubber strap that comes with this watch is stiff as a board. It might ease up over time, after lots of exposure to sun and salt water, but I doubt it. The strap is also visually too small for the watch, IMHO, so I also ordered the solid steel bracelet made as a replacement for the Orange and Black Seiko Monster divers. These bracelets have a 20mm end link to fit this watch, but that end link also flares at the watch head to 22mm, which makes it visually more compatible with the size of this watch. The Monster bracelet also has a nice combination of polished and brushed elements that fit well with the surface finish of the watch. Removing links from this bracelet is tricky, so check out online tutorials before you try it yourself. The links contain very small split sleeves that are easily lost when the link pins are removed, and the danged little sleeves are essential for holding the bracelet together!
I also find that the rotating bezel, at least on my watch, turns too easily, so you can inadvertantly change the bezel setting with realizing it. But other than those two items, I am very happy with this solar Seiko, and I hope Seiko continues to expand its solar line of watches with more variety.

If I had to do it again, I would try to keep the Seiko SNE107 watchband metal band "works" inside a large gallon size baggie while working on them, to keep them from flying off. Also vacuum the floor FIRST.

Hi Seamaster, I'm *guessing* this is the replacement bracelet you bought, no? Seiko Steel Watchband For Monster Watch. Genuine Seiko Watch Band 20mm.
