Thanks

Cool watch but a little too big and thick for my wrist. Same crappy no micro adjust clasp as every dressy seiko.

A friend at work wears one as his daily. It is a great looking piece and the Spring Drive smooth seconds hand sweep is mesmerizing. I love the dial and it is reminiscent of wind swept snow over a field. The Ti case makes the watch very wearable. I can see how it has become my friend's daily watch.

I try it on every time I swing by the Seiko boutique. Love it every time. The dial is a fantastic work of art and the SD is a marvel of Seiko’s tech.

It’s not a dress watch but not a sports watch so that’s one of the things that’s held me back from seriously pursuing one - mainly because of my job; flashy pieces aren’t smart thinking. I prefer my muted pieces (Pelagos, Aerospace Evo).

Also, I prefer the OG dial over the new GS rebrand. Just more aesthetically pleasing to my eye.

First one I tried on was Seiko Joe’s at the Miami Seiko Boutique. He’s been wearing it as his daily for 7+ years I believe.

It’s an exceptional piece and one that you should spring for if you’re thinking about it.

I've had mine for over 2 years, purchased 2nd hand. Great watch for pretty much all occasions - work, weekends, going out, etc. Wears comfortable due to the weight of Ti. Size is great - not small, not huge. It's great having the 72 hour PR. Mine's been running for a few months straight, and the accuracy is around 5 seconds off in this few months. Only negative I can come up with is the lack of lume for nighttime.
