Every so often a classic watch design is produced by a leading manufacturer of this most exacting class of micro-machinery. Even the most eminent of Swiss watch makers have labeled their best watches 'classic' but that claim needs examination.

So what exactly is needed in a good watch? Above all, clarity of design stands out. There is nothing worse to look at than a fussy and cluttered face with too many small sub-dials and those never-used numbered rings around the watch. You need a crisp dark background to make the hands stand out. The hands must be straight, parallel shaped and being luminous is very useful. Those two vital reminders, the day and the date must be together, large, in a single rectangular window. On a personal note I feel we donít need the actual 12 numbers printed out for us at this stage in manís evolution. Simple rectangular blocks again keep things clean and classical and they show the luminous paint very clearly! Automatic or manual quartz? Quartz is time-tested and accurate but automatic with a see-how-it-works glass back is so cool!

Design of the bodywork wraps it all up nicely. The hands sweep a circle so letís have no squared faces. There must then be a tapered rectangular surround to allow the watch sit on the wrist with stability. Do you want to be flashy? Then go for ostentatious gold. The classic design says stainless steel for body and strap. It is a watch after all and not jewelry. Be proud of it and happily one watch fits all these features perfectly, the Seiko 5-SNXS79

I was looking for an everyday wear watch not too flashy and definately not cheap. I found exactly what I was looking for in this particular Seiko 5. It looks as good worn with a t-shirt and jeans as it does with a shirt and trousers. Light weight, glow in the dark dials and day/date feature. I opted for the black background so it would go with any of my clothes. Automatic to boot! A great smart/casual all round watch.

On delivery the watch came inside a white box with the logo SEIKO on top in silver. The watch sat inside around a black cushion although this cushion was to small for the box in my opinion, something that made me check for damage although there wasnt but a design something that immediately stood out to me.

The watch claims to be a black face and a black face it is! However I can see how and why some reviews call it Grey Anthracite as when the sun shines on the face youll see why but dont be off put by this. The strap is of a brushed metal appearance rather than a shiny silver which I feel can cheapen the look of a watch.

Holding the watch it feels light but this makes it a great every day watch without you knowing its constantly there. With a face size of 37 mm it will come up small on the larger wrist. Im not of a larger build but it did take a few days of wearing to get use to the smaller size. The metal strap again is on the smaller so bear this in mind as it may look silly on the larger wrist, my wrist is 19 cm for a tight fitting. The overall size will also require adjustment, for me two links were removed.

The watch face has luminous markers at the hour marks except three which has the day and date. The markers also appear on the hour and minute hands, get this in the sun and at night they light up very bright, dont and youll struggle to see the time.
The second hand almost appears to sweep like a Rolex so a nice touch for a cheaper watch and certainly something that swayed me to this watch than others.

Some photos show the date and time in a different language dont be alarmed you havent brought a foreign copy the watch is bilingual and is easily adjusted using the instructions that come with the watch. To adjust is as simple as pulling out the crown at 4 oclock either once or twice and turning either left or right depending on what you want to do.

As an Automatic/Mechanical watch this means regular wearing or it will stop, how long does the watch last for before it stops completely is clearly of different opinions however my watch will last 1 day, 2 if im lucky before it needs perking up with a little movement. Is this a pain, no as you buy an automatic watch knowing this will happen. The manual states the watch will last 36 hours.

Time keeping - Mine after three weeks is NO minutes slower/faster than the clock I set it to and I havent worn it every day. The manual claims the watch will stay -/+ 25 seconds per day so it looks like I got my self a good one.

On the watch there is no clear indication on its water resistance. This is explained in the manual so just to clarify its 3 bar.

Would I buy this watch again if it was to break or I lost it - YES!
Would I recommend to a friend - YES!
Would I buy from Watch Shop again - YES!

Love it. Dropped my old divers Rotary watch and it died, so needed a replacement watch for wearing in the evenings. Looks very cool, and keeps good time so far. Only wear evenings so spends all day motionless, but hasnt stopped yet. Bracelet was fairly simple to remove links myself and adjust to fit. Excellent quality feel for the price

I bought seiko 5 watch for my fathers birthday. Its Automatic model in stainless with black dial with day and date functions. The watch is water-resistant. I order it online because was cheaper then in the shops. Was bit nervous about purchising on line because I wasnt sure if the watch would look same like on the picture, but it looked exactly the same. My father is really happy with the watch.

Amazing value for money!
This watch is incredible value, even at full retail price. Throw in a WatchShop sale price and its a no-brainer. Try finding a decent mechanical automatic for the same money. Even has a day/date movement.
Precision Japanese movement, elegant looks and a clear caseback, this makes a great everyday automatic.
The bracelet is not the most substantial, but Ill invest in a replacement leather strap with deployment clasp at some point.

One of the better value watch buys out there. As an aside, watchshop delivered this watch very promptly. Not needed to use customer services.

Dont dismiss this watch because of its low price. It is every bit worthy of bearing the Seiko name.

The case is highly polished, with nice chamfers and a similarly polished bezel. It appears to me to be quite a retro shape, which I find attractive.

The dial is actually not black, but a brownish-grey colour - I guess you could say like anthracite - with a brushed finish that creates an attractive starburst when the light hits it. The indices are applied and even the Seiko logo appears to be metal and is raised off the dial. The hands and markers are filled with lume which glows green, and the metal border to the day/ date window shows a nice attention to detail. The crystal is raised very slightly, which allows the light to shine out of the sides with a greenish tint, adding to the retro vibe.

The movement is the latest version of the renowned Seiko 7s26, which is nothing much to look at, so its curious that the maker has given the watch a see-through back. But to my pleasant surprise, the winding rotor appears to run on ball bearings, rather than a bushing. This movement is widely regarded as a tough workhorse, and there are anecdotal tales on the net of it working for decades without service, though I plan to have mine cleaned and re-oiled every 5 or 7 years or so. It appears to be an example of good, honest watchmaking without unnecessary decoration. The only thing slight downside to this movement is that it cannot be wound by hand, so to keep it running, you have to wear your watch each day. And when its running, you cant stop the seconds hand in order to synchronise the watch with a time signal - but then again, if you want accuracy to the last second, a mechanical watch might not be for you, as a daily gain or loss of a few seconds is common. This one is currently gaining about 10 seconds a day, which is fine for me.

The only other slight let-down is the very flimsy bracelet which is made of folded-over strips of metal, hollow end-links the pieces that join the bracelet to the watch, and a clasp made of stamped metal. That said, these are not much worse than what was common until recently on some expensive Swiss watches, and in my view, the bracelet looks fine on the wrist. Because the fitments are pretty standard, it would be easy to replace the bracelet with a better one, or fit a leather strap instead.

In conclusion, if you dont care about marketing hoopla and celebrity endorsements, its a good little watch from a company with a real and long history that brings its own pleasure in wearing - the pleasure of seeing how good an inexpensive watch can be.

For the money, you cant go wrong really. The automatic movement emulates that of a sweeping hand on pricier models not exactly, but different compared to Quartz.

I ordered the Black face one which actually came through as dark grey/graphite. Even better suited to my tastes but you might want to bear it in mind.

For the money youre getting a classic. The strap is quite a big-un and you need a tool to remove links or specialist. I bought a nice black calf leather strap, 19mm a 20mm does squeeze on and it looks lovely.

Watchshop service wise, I cant fault them. Speedy delivery and although I dont know whether its Seikos mistake or theirs regarding the Black/Grey face issue, Im very happy.

In 1968 I bought my first Seiko Automatic watch. Twenty years later I added a second. Both are still going strong. This week, I couldnt resist buying a third for my collection. Needless to say, I can thoroughly recommend them for their looks, reliability and longevity. Great value for money too!

I was looking for a watch, a little different than the current trends.

This watch has a cool and retro look, the numbers and fonts have an elgant 70's feel to them and the world famous '5' logo looks great.

The watch face isn't a dark black, more of a shimmering anthracite which matches the stainless steel case and bracelet perfectly, much better (In my opinion) than the lighter face.

The watch feels heavy and looks expensive, which belies the affordable price.

I also appreciate Seiko's rich heritage too as a quality watch maker. Remember, even James Bond used to wear Seiko's!

If you are looking for a quality timepiece which is a little different from current trends, but looks retor with jeans and a t-shirt, or elegant with a shirt and tie, I thoroughly recommend this to you.

Id been looking for my first automatic watch for quite a while now when I found this Seiko on Watchshop. It fit my criteria perfectly, its got a simple clean face and not cluttered with dials I would never use. Id considered some of the Hamilton and Tissot ranges but couldnt believe I could get an automatic for less than £60! This is really good value for money.

The pictures dont do the watch justice and looks even better in real life. Ive had some great comments about the watch and all could not believe the price, thinking it was at least 5x more. As mentioned before, the face is more dark grey or anthracite and looks fantastic. The watch bezel is a nice shiny steel and the bracelet is more matte steel .

Speaking of the bracelet this one area where Seiko has saved money. The links are hollow folded links rather than solid steel, it does feel a little flimsy but it actually suits me fine because it also means its lighter. You hardly notice the watch on your wrist which is a personal preference.

Ive had it a little over a week and so far its kept good time. I havent checked for exact accuracy but its keeping relatively close to a quartz Casio I have.

All in all a highly recommended, unbelievable value for money purchase.

I purchased this watch as a direct replacement for its predecessor of 1980. More sentiment than need. The original watch has been working perfectly although now shows the physical scars of its very demanding life.

The new watch is everything I expected it to be a fresh and modern take on the original model from 1980. Heres to another 35 years of trouble free service.

Why did I buy it - It replaces the same model I had worn since 2001.
This had belonged to my late father who had worn it for years so I knew it had longjevity.
I will still try and have the original repaired for purely sentimental reasons.
I am just so pleased that Seiko still produce this model !!!!!

This one has all the style and presence of its more expensive brothers, without the price tag. It has done exactly what it said on the box, it is reliable and just goes as long as you have it on your wrist. I particularly like the day/date feature this was the main attraction for me after the price.
In all good value for the money and a good stylish compromise for a kinetic powered version at twice the money or more.

I have owned several Seiko 5 watches over the years and they have all been excellent.
My old one had scratches on the face so I decided on a new one after looking around.
The Time and Day/Date are easy to set and the watch needs very little maintenance as it runs off the movement of your wrist - so NO need to fit batteries.
Wear the watch all the time to keep the movement going.
I choose the Black Face version over my previous model with the Blue face - both models are very attractive.
You get a nice presentation box with the watch as well.

Love these little Seiko 5s and think they are amazing value for an automatic mechanics watch. I bought the black face version which is almost black but has a slight brown hue in bright light. looks a lot more expensive than it actually is.

The clear back gives a great view of the watch mechanics and always impresses people when they see it.

Only downside to this watch is the cheap bracelet. Its a rolled metal type and feels light and a bit rattly. Obviously at this price compromises have to be made and the watch really works on leather.

Overall would highly recommend this watch in all colour combinations.

Seiko 5 watches are well known for high quaility at a low price and £60 for an automatic watch from a well known manufacturer is amazing value, so if you are thinking about buying one then just do it. If you do buy one then a replacement strap is a good idea because the bracelet is ok but compared to the rest of the watch it seems cheap

The Seiko 5 Automatic watch is simply stunning. It looks far more expensive than it actually is and I am sure any man would be thrilled with this product. The packaging is classy and you know before opening the box that you are in for a treat! The watch itself is lightweight without looking cheap and flimsy and the luminous blocks representing the numbers stand out fantastically against the dark background. The second hand movement is so smooth it glides rather than ticks round and the day and date are clearly visible on the watch face without being overpowering. It is easily set up and youll be wearing it in no time and enjoying the complimentary glances youll be getting no doubt. It is sleek, stylish and sexy and just as suitable for evening wear as it is for wearing during the day with your favourite pair of jeans and a tee shirt.
Overall the Seiko 5 is both aesthetically pleasing and a great buy and I wouldnt hesitate to buy another!

Great watch exactly as per the online illustration. Polished steel with a black face but still looks classy. Hour markers and hands are nice size clear and easy for my old eyes to read I am 65 years young and luminous as well the watch that is, not me. Easily adjust the bracelet strap with only a pin. The glass back showing the workings inside is an interesting touch but perhaps wasted as you cannot view it while wearing the watch. Nevertheless, there is nothing about this watch that I dislike I am very pleased with my purchase.

Buy one or two now before somebody realises that these Seiko watches are the bargain of the century and are worth, at the very least, double the current price. They cannot be matched at the price.

I bought this watch as a replacement for a much more expensive automatic watch an Oris which cost ten times as much - indeed, I could have bought two of these watches for the cost of getting my Oris serviced which kept breaking down on me - and so far Im delighted. It was easy to adjust the date/time, the face is very clear and the luminous dial is easy to read at night. It runs extremely quietly you have to hold it right up to your ear to hear it ticking. I love the glass back that allows you to see the movement. The only thing that betrays its price is that its quite bulky, but not unwearably so. It is also keeping excellent time after over a week I havent had to adjust it at all. As a woman the bracelet was far too large for me, which is fair enough as its a mans watch, but I prefer the larger size of mens watches generally. Ideally I would have preferred to have the choice of a leather strap but the metal bracelet is fine now Ive had a few links taken out. In short, a bargain automatic watch and everything I need.

I bought this watch on a Sunday and, paid an extra £2 to have next day delivery.
It came on time, and had the strap adjusted, as Id asked, perfectly.
The watch its self is better than I ever expected. Its wearable as an every day watch and keeps good time for an automatic . But mainly to myself at least, its a great looking watch and feels nice to wear.

Love the fact that this watch has an in-house self-winding automatic movement, which you can see ticking through the exhibition case on the back. The dial is finely detailed and changes with the angle / quality of light falling on it. Having day/date window is a great bonus. The bracelet was easy to adjust at home. I enjoy wearing it as a daily as, being such good value, Im less concerned about accidental scratches.

I bought this watch to wear both formally and casually as an every day item. It replaces a Sekonda that I have owned for around 10 years which has now started fogging up thanks to water making its way into the case following a recent battery replacement. On that basis, I wanted an automatic watch so I would never need to replace the battery and risk compromising the integrity of the case in doing so. I was really surprised to see that Seiko make an automatic watch for under £100, and with this being on offer at £60 on Watchshop it seemed like an obvious choice. I would highly recommend this watch to anyone. Its looks belie the low price. The smart charcoal/black face, smooth sweeping second hand and brushed stainless steel bracelet give quite a classy look to the watch. The bracelet is rather thin, which might not be to everyones tastes, but what this does do is significantly reduce the weight of the watch compared to other similar models. A lot of the time I actually forget Im wearing it. The only criticism I have seen of this watch is accuracy indeed, in the couple of weeks that I have owned it it does appear to have Gained a minute compared to the computer clock I originally set it to. I dont consider this to be particularly bad or off-putting enough to not recommend the watch to others. Service from the Watchshop was also excellent. Delivery from the time of order was fast, especially considering that they had to resize the bracelet for me free of charge. The watch was well packaged and delivered signed-for.\r\n\r\nIn summary, the Seiko 5 automatic watch SNXS79 is a fantastic time piece that I would highly recommend to friends & family. I would happily use Watchshop again for future purchases.

I bought this for my father in laws birthday , its great, he doesnt have to wind it, put a battery in or hit it with his hammer to alter the strap length
He loves it, had the strap shortened at goldsmiths jewellers.he then wore it so they gave him a goldsmiths bag for his old watch and the watch case.
Great service. What more could one want for

Great watch for the price! I bought this as a backup for my old faithful Seiko watch of twenty years service! The fact its self winding is perfect for me, no need to buy batteries every two years. It is according to Seiko only splash proof..not shower or swimming so be warned. Kept good time with no noticeable loss or gain so far. It may be a tad small on a large wrist but suitable for the average. The bracelet is quite robust but not Chunky. I like the fact the mechanism is visible via the glass back... Im very pleased with it.

Tired of having to change your watch to match your outfit? Sick of large watches that can be seen from the ISS? Wish you could just buy one watch that would be appropriate in every situation? This is the watch for you. At 37mm, this watch is the perfect size for all wrists, and has an air of elegance and true practicality see the Rolex Explorer I @ 36mm! Large enough to read comfortably, small enough to slip under a shirt cuff and not get caught on pockets shout-out to that hidden crown. With day/date window, 30 metres water resistance take your watch off when washing though please! The gaskets will thank you, the bacteria on your wrist wont. Throw in that classic Seiko lume that shines brighter than the sun, and this watch is easily the best value for money at this price. The famous 7s26 automatic movement is one the most popular automatic movements, reliable, cheap and easy to service and can be seen through the case back. Again, if you want a watch you can put on with whatever youre wearing, wherever youre going, this watch is ideal. The stainless steel is a timeless, no fuss look. For those more mechanically inclined though, hand winding and hacking are not possible with this model - only a problem if your bosss watch is better than +/-15 seconds a day. For photo reference, my wrists are a slender 6.5 inches.

For the last 28 years i have owned one of these watches, unfortunately it decided to expire. When i took it to a local jewelers to be repaired he told me it would cost at least £80 to be repaired, i told him not to bother as i would buy a new watch. He told me that i could not buy a Seiko automatic for that price. When i looked on the Watchshop web page i found this watch @ £59.37 so i purchased one straight away, this is the lowest price i have seen this watch, also good service from this company. I find the black face with the luminous dial easy to read even in the dark. The bezel is at the number 4 instead of the number 3 and is smaller than the previous model which i like as it is out of the way. I would buy this watch again even if it did not last 28 years as Seiko watches are very reliable.

First time with an automatic watch. Took some time to get it started, I think either the bumpy roads or rough transport handling had affected the movement. Second hand had a mind of its own for the first day, even after several attempts to swirl to wind. Since then the watch has been perfect. Great value and for the money I am very happy.

Lovely, quality watch which I bought as a gift for my Dad - hes very pleased with it.

Id recommend requesting the right measurement through the website, though, as the style of wristband meant I had to visit Goldsmiths four times in total to get some links removed as few employees have the tool/ability to do so.

I have owned many watches over the years including quite a few top end Swiss makes however the Seiko automatics are in my opinion extremely good.
This particular watch is holding extremely good timekeeping it is within 3 seconds a day at present.Of course the case and movement are not to top end Swiss quality but it is not that far behind and the current timekeeping is better than most of those watches I have owned which is the most important factor with a watch in my view.Pound for pound on cost there is simply no comparison.

Very satisfied with product including style, cloud and dial although it is early days. It appears to gain approx. 3 secs per day which I suppose is acceptable for an automatic watch. One minor draw back is that the day change appears to take a long time - c. 3 hrs in to next day - having to go through the second language, French. Wish it had English alone but this is a minor issue. Perhaps it is manufactured for the EU including GB.

Overall very impressed with the watch, aside from the cheapish strap the body itself is lovely, looks very smart, movement is fairly smooth and it seems very efficient at winding itself, nice to be able to leave it off for a while and pick it up still going and not having to reset the time. The only down side for me is it does look small on my wrist, Im 62 and quite a big guy, I would agree with a couple of other reviews Ive read that it is small by modern standard. I think Ill get used to it, its a lovely watch its just Im used to a larger piece.

Got the watch for dad, for his birthday! I choosed this one because I wanted something simple but elegant, with good contrast between the dial and the fingers as his sight is getting poorer. Also didnt wanted some this too big, nor too heavy.
Really nice looking watch, seen other comments saying that it looks better in reality than in the pictures, but it is so true! It looks nice, it feels solid, not as the cheap watches, also important for dad not too big not too heavy. It looks good on the wrist, everybody loves it!
I would really recommend the watch for anyone looking for a simple, but elegant watch, athe a good price!

I bought this watch for my husband as a replacement for a Seiko he received as a leaving present 34 years ago. He is delighted with it. It is simple but stylish and appears to be excellent value for money, it comes in a such range of face colours and straps that it was difficult to decide which to buy! I would thoroughly recommend this item - a great buy, just hope it lasts as long as his previous one.

I just bought my first Seiko. My father wore one when he was alive so I figured I would keep with the family tradition and do the same. I am very pleased with my Seiko 5. It is well built, beautiful and has silky movement. You are truly getting a lot of watch for your money. Be sure and have your band adjusted before you receive it, it is very large.

This watch is the second Seiko automatic I have owned . I love the way a black dial is set off by the silver frame and the bracelet securely locked against loss or theft.
my last Seiko still keeps perfect time. but after 8 years of daily constant wear is showing its age with scratches to its face and catch I was so pleased to see watch shop had some in stock.

A most excellent watch - looks fine, cheaper than Id ever imagined such a fine, mechanical watch could be. It is very comfortable, loses around 1.5 minutes a week - which is no issue - we are surrounded by super accurate time sources and correcting the watch is very easily accomplished with the recessed winder. Of course the winder is never needed - this being an automatic.
the day date function works fine - it can show the day in three languages - French, german and English.

Very satisfied by this watch - and judging by reports of the 5 series Seiko watches going on for decades, it will probably outlast me. And any coming apocalypse!

By the way, even though I need to pay more 2£ for delivery next day cause I see that the watchshop is not sure about delivery this item next day with free service. It means it may take 2 days so I decided to pay more to receive this item on time. But its good, I received this watch before 1 pm next day! Highly recommend!

Bought this watch as a Christmas present for my father in law. To say that he was impressed is an understatement.

The watch is classy and understated but incredibly functional.

A hidden benefit that I hadnt anticipated is that you can choose the day setting from English Mon, Tue, Wed etc to Italian Lun, Mar, Mie etc and presumably Japanese ?,? etc. This was particularly useful for my father in law who is Spanish and therefore, prefered the Italian day settings.

In summary, I was amazed at the quality of the watch for the price paid - incredible value.

I read somewhere that the future is Japanese for watches and having bought a Casio G-Shock for myself, a long term Swiss watch fanatic has been very quickly converted!!

The watch has what I consider to be smooth, classic lines, no bells and whistles, I particularly like the concealed crown which doesnt wear a hole in the top of my wrist.

The face is easy to read, even with my failing eyesight, although I do need to wear my specs to read the day/date, but thats the same for any watch.

I have a radio controlled watch which I use as a benchmark for my hobby of restoring Victorian Silver pocket watches, having checked this watch against it I was pleasantly surprised to see that it lost about 20 seconds in 24hours. I expect this to get even better as the works bed in.

All in all, a superb timepiece.

Most disappointed with the product. I bought a seiko 5 automatic watch as a birthday gift for my husband. From the very start he would mention that the watch would stop working after wearing it for a day. He started wearing it during the nights just to keep it working. He has had seiko watches in the past and knows how good these watches are. However on the 1/12/13 he had the watch on for the whole day and it completely stopped working.
Since then I have tried contacting the watch shop about this but have had no response.
Very disappointed and unhappy. Would not recommend to buy this product.

Seiko automatic Watch. I used to wear a watch very similar to this one during the 70s which I lost so when I saw this one it looked identical to the one I used to have. As soon as I saw it I snapped it up. The watch has very clean lines with a black face and rectangular blocks which are luminous as are the hands, no messy in-between numbers to clutter up the face which has nice clean lines and is not fussy like others Ive seen! I am well pleased with what definitely is a classic watch in every sense of the word! Retro definitely springs to mind as does classic looks!

I was very pleased with the Sieko 5 automatic watch. The watch is stylish with a clear to read face. It is rubust and has the appearance and quality feel of a far more expensive product than the cost of under £60.00. I managed to adjust the strap and remove three links relatively easily despite the Sieko instructions containing no relevant details. The hidden winding crown is very clever. Overall the watch is a real winner, which could easily have a three to four hundred pound price tag attached.

This look a very nice quality piece from Seiko. The styling is classical, the shape of the case around the round face being very reminiscent of a Seiko of my fathers in the 70s. The face is very clear and easy to read, the hands and hour marks stand out clearly from the face even in dim lighting, and the day and date are also quite easy to make out even with my worsening vision.
The face and the body of the watch are smaller than I was expecting, if you are accustomed to a weighty chunk sitting on your wrist then this is going to seem a little feminine, and you really need to wear it every day to keep it going. The overall effect though, is elegant and understated, not cheap and I do like the clear back so that you can see the mechanics of the winder and watch.

Great watch with all the functions that I need - the recessed winder is a particularly good feature as it stops the winder making indentations on the back of your hand if you bend your wrists.

This watch is an absolute bargain. Clean classy looks really defy the low price. Had a couple of Seiko 5s now and recommend them highly, very happy with my purchase and the level or service from watchshop

The watch is excellent value for money and a quality product. Slim, good-looking and the black (actually charcoad grey) face and hands are easy to read. Automatic - so no winding. Stainless steel strap - not too difficult to adjust yourself. I would have liked it to be more than 30m splashproof, but otherwise am delighted with the purchase.

I am really pleased with the Seiko watch i bought for my boyfriend. The watch is very well made and doesn't look too 'over the top'. There is a see through back which i think is a nice feature. The second hand sweeps rather than ticks which is a sign of a well made watch. I would definitely buy another Seiko again.

I am really impressed with the Seiko watch I received. The watch is really smart & not too 'over the top'. It would be ideal to wear for all occasions. The back of the face reveals the inside mechanics of the watch which looks really different. The quality of the watch definitely reflects the price - I would definitely buy another Seiko. This is the first one I have bought.

A 1st class product and 1st class service. I had only one problem and that was the option to have the strap adjusted to my size, it was not made clear that i had to include to size of the watch, so my strap was to short , but a local jeweler remedied it for me .The colour and features are excellant,

I bought this watch as a surprise gift for my husband , and he was thrilled with it, It looks really really smart not flashy . His favourite part is the very clear dial at night no putting glasses on to see the time in the middle of the night , Seiko is my favourite brand of watch they last for years ,and now I think my man thinks the same ,and the price was really fair

This is my first automatic watch which I think is excellent. Everything is easy to use and read. Is very stylish . Colours of dial and hands make it easy to see in the nightlife. The Crown is nicely shaped to be snug and unobtrusive. It is also very well priced
