Seiko SKX781, This 21-jewel, automatic watch winds itself with the motion of your wrist, so you’ll never need to change the battery. It has a stainless steel case and features an orange dial with three-hand function, easy-to-read bar markers, and an English/Spanish day/date window at the three o’clock position. Additional features include a screw-down case and crown, a scratch-resistant Hardlex crystal, and a one-way rotating bezel that keeps track of elapsed time. With its Lumibrite hands, markers, and bezel, this watch is easy to read in both light and dark conditions. The watch secures to a durable, stainless-steel bracelet band. Designed for diving, this watch is water-tested to 200 meters. It meets ISO standards and is suitable for scuba diving.
I own both the black and orange monsters. The bracelets can not be beat for quality and feel. I have some very expensive Swiss watches and bracelets, the monsters are just as good. If I go out at night and you want a dive watch on my wrist, the monster is the first choice because of the enlightened and lasting luminous hands and markers. The orange monster becomes more compliments and looks just as class as the black monster. They are heavy, but the quality of the bracelet and the mix of polished SS cases is very attractive. If you do not want a heavy watch look elsewhere though!
Bought the watch from Amazon Sunday evening and arrived late on Thursday with the delivery service for 5 days. I had a couple of days and I am extremely satisfied. I also own a Rolex Submariner, Breitling Chronomat, Omega Seamaster Chrono, Citizen Nighthawk, and some assorted casios and Timexes. This Seiko automatic watch ranks just a hair below the $ 2000 Swiss watch, but for less than $ 200, is an incredible value. The quality and workmanship are excellent for this price range. For example, the second and minute hands line up exactly with the hash marks when the second hand hits 12, the minute hand is algined own branded minutes hash. Wow, I’ve seen $ 1000 Swiss quartz watches that do not. The assembly of all the components look top notch. The bezel has a sense of precision and the click-stops to align exactly with the hash marks on the dial. The markings alphanumeric Lumbre markers, and hands seem to be of high quality. Seiko cost savings is the omission of hacking the second hand, but little pressure back stops for the time setting. Moreover, the black and white day and date, although easy to read seems to be embossed on cheapy white plastic. The bracelet has solid links stainless steel, but the weight and the chrome are slightly on the side of the budget. The clock seems to run faster than about 1 second every day, that’s good enough for a mechanical clock since I had a Timex quartz analog with a face that was running fast on the increase itself. I love the orange face and chrome bezel with recessed, black figures painted hash marks. The clock supplied from Amazon came with a Seiko box, instructions and warranty and does not seem to be a gray market watch. I saw the clock for less on eBay but were coming from overseas, so I paid a few dollars more from Amazon is the United States. All in all, I am very happy with this Seiko watch and service of Amazon.
