I'm going to guess these will wear big, have great lume, and pan out as a Casio competitor vanilla line. At least they aren't ugly as sin.

Close, but the proportions look off. The dial and hands look like they would work better on a smaller watch.

I have seen a couple of those on sale, look nice overall but I still don't like the 5 shield on the dial... Also I would prefer filled hands rather half skeleton.

Generic looking and too big as usual for Seiko.
