  1. rover


    Other reviewers have already captured this watch’s excellent value, feature set, looks and quality. Below are my observations; I’ll summarize that this is a dress watch that makes slight trade-offs for looks over functionality (rather than being a sports or everyday watch), and is really well designed and manufactured for that purpose.NOTE: You must properly set the watch the first time around, otherwise calendar and alarm may not work right. It’s all in the manual! Shouldn’t have to touch it again for a long time.Battery: It’s solar-powered, so you shouldn’t have to replace the battery for a long time.Size and fit: The case size of 44 mm is on the smaller side for men’s chronographs these days, and should work for more wrists. The lugs curve downwards from the watch back (rather than going straight out, or being offset by a domed back), helping the watch wrap nicely on my thinner wrist. There’s plenty of removable links – in fact, they *all* can be removed (no one’s going to, but just so you know).Functions: I compared this to a Citizen PCAT, which was also in the running. Seiko’s functions are easier to use – lower side button for chrono, upper side button for checking date-month-year-battery reserve. Pull crown to position 1 for setting alarm, position 2 for setting time and calendar. Missing are world time, multiple time zones, and radio time sync (compared to more expensive Couturas and the Citizen PCATs), but those weren’t worth the premium for me.Buttons: Two side buttons, that shouldn’t get pushed accidentally, thanks to the raised “shoulder” of the crown, as well as their own resistance and clickiness (might take some time getting used to). The alarm is set using the side buttons rather than by turning the crown. In some contexts, holding the button pressed will move the hands faster (like when setting the alarm or the time/calendar).Dials and hands: Top dial is for day, date-hand function indicator and power level. The “day arc” dial is less common in watches, and I like how it’s done here. Bottom dial is alarm time/chrono hour+minute. Left dial is always seconds. The normal second hand is actually a calendar hand on this watch, cycling between displaying date, month and year when pressing the top side button. It’s much more readable than a small date dial, of course less so than a date window – but the date hand is unique and works for the look of the watch vs a date window.The big dials has 1/5th second markings for the chrono functions, but these are missing near the big 5-minute markers – for looks I guess, but I’d have preferred if they had kept the fine markings everywhere.Hands are nicely styled, with the hour and minute hands having plenty of LumiBrite. The calendar hand is really thin; a bit more width would have been nice. Other markings are white against black, no LumiBrite here – will be difficult to read in “mood lighting”.Materials and build: can’t complain, solid parts are solid, moving parts are well-fitted, glass is sapphire crystal and flat, water resistance of 100 m is adequate (not planning on scuba diving with this dress watch). The polished silver band will slowly scratch, so enjoy it while it lasts. After that, declare it “brushed metal”? The band styling is unique to the Coutura line, as far as I can tell, and quite attractive.You won’t find a replacement band from Seiko, so take care of the original (or maybe buy a busted Coutura for the band if you must).Comparable watches: Seiko SSC787 is this watch but in silver with blue tone. Citizen PCATs offer similar dial layout, more features (time zones, tachymeter, radio sync, and 200 m water resistance, but lack month-year) at a higher price.Finally, be careful where you buy it from – either get it from Amazon.com directly, or an authorized Seiko seller. My first attempt landed me a “new” watch from an inventory liquidator, and many of the negative reviews here appear to have had a similar experience.

    It is these reviews that are silly in my mind. I like Seiko watches. I buy a watch every 10 years or so. I shop at Amazon because of convenience and ease of sale. I know what I like, so I buy what I like. There seems to be no need to review anything except to say that Amazon makes it so easy!

  3. Joseph Kantar


    Looks even better than the pictures suggest. The band was big enough to allow for adjustments (not so with a previous order of a Seiko on Amazon).

  4. Eran M.


    Very hard to set the date

  5. A Customer eh?


    I liked the looks of it but one thing that was a deal breaker for me was the 3rd hand. It seems like the usual seconds but it actually indicates the date so it gives the watch the “dead battery” appearance from the lack of movement. Other than this personal pet peeve, it’s a nice looking watch that’s a bit heavy.

    Love this watch its just very hard to set.

  7. Dennis M


    I love all the features it has but the following are the negatives.The “minute” hand shows the date and only shows seconds when using the stopwatch. The seconds are on the tiny dial to the left.When you pull out the stem to set the time it automatically stops the watch. Make sure the seconds are at zero before pulling it out. It does not reset.The “alarm/24 hour” dial serves multiple purposes. When setting the large dial of the watch you must also set the small 24 hour dial. The perpetual calendar and alarm functions use the small dial not the large one. They are completely independent.When you set the alarm the alarm dial displays that time until it goes off. It then resumes moving.You can use the watch for 2 time zones. The main dial and the small dial. Just remember that all functions are based on the small dial. That can be confusing if you use the large dial for local time and the small dial for home time.

    No manual provided – no instructions. No facility for sizing. Hard to set up. I will return if I cannot get this done – or maybe a friend can help me. Not what I expected in the way of support from the seller

  9. Mark Woollacott


    Amazing watch. Feels solid and looks great. I know some of the other reviews say there are problems with the functions of this watch but I haven’t had any yet. Maybe it’s because I don’t wear it daily though. Either way, I love it.

  10. The Shmahz


    It’s perfect. Easily my favorite seiko watch in a very very long time. Better than presage series on account of the attention to detail.
