I bought this watch three weeks back and it looks great on my wrist. I love the fact that I do not have to take this watch to stores to replace batteries where the internal mechanism can be damaged by careless employees. The last Seiko I had lasted 20 years. Hope this one does too. The only issues I had were (1) the watch is a little heavier than the one it replaced and (2) the band adjustment needed was not easy and had to be done by professionals.
