    I have that exact watch. It is on my wrist as I type this. It is my favorite watch right now and I wear it more than my Rolex. The only possible criticism I could offer is that the Seiko 5s cannot be hand wound. The only way to wind them is to use the automatic winding mechanism.

    Sigh.

    I was on an all-day ride two Saturdays ago and when I got home, I found that my 18 month old had taken my Vostok and now we can't find it. Even though I have a bunch of watches, including a very nice Seiko diver, the Vostok Amphibia with the NATO band was by far my favorite - I wore it 4 days a week.

    We still have no clue where it went after two weeks, so I ordered another one today. (meaning I'll probably find it tomorrow). Of course that means waiting forever for it to show up from Russia... Note to self - don't leave the watch on the counter...

    The watch arrived ahead of schedule, good shipping from them. My son has the smaller Seiko 5 Military, says the new one is much heavier, about the weight of his Submariner. It was his choice for a birthday present, and he likes it. He's happy, I'm happy. :clap

    Maybe I need one myself. :lol3

    Quite a few years ago my 3 year old son lost my cell phone. After looking for days, I was sitting on the front porch and looked down at my very stupid dog, and said "Max where is my phone?" After a few minutes Max got up and went into the front yard and laid down. About an hour went by and my wife walked over to give old max a pat, and there was my phone.

    It's not expensive or fancy but I put a leather band on my Seiko 5 with a locking deployment clasp. It made it look a bit nicer than the canvas strap that came with it.

    I bought this to be a casual watch and knowing that I'm getting a 10 year watch from work soon (picked an Eco-drive AT for that). I kept it small so I can give it to my son (he's 11) when the new one shows up. :D

    A fine strap can make any watch look like it cost many more times what it did. I stuck a nice ($) Alligator strap on a 100 dollar Invicta and it looked like the watch costs thousands.

    Pfff.

    Everyone can see it's an automatic sprinkler system controller.

    There's a clock in there somewhere, I guess...
