Recently, as a matter of interest, I checked the accuracy of my watch for several days. The result was a level of accuracy which is within the band specified for a Swiss mechanical watch to be qualified as an “Officially Certified Chronometer”.
Of course, the results only apply to my watch, and I am not asserting that the watch has any official status for accuracy from COSC.
But, this is a good illustration of the high quality of the watch’s movement for the price paid.
Update: January 15, 2019
After about six months of usage, I have found this watch to offer remarkably good timekeeping for a modestly priced mechanical watch - another virtue of this great value watch.
Also, I have purchased another one (in a different colour) which proved to be a welcome gift.
Recently, I bought one of these bargain watches.
The price at time of writing is about AUD100, and at that price, Seiko deliver a great deal of watch!
This is an automatic winding watch, so it doesn’t use batteries.
Seldom are automatic watches of this quality and from a prominent reputable brand available at this price.
The works are the Seiko 7S26 caliber, and I understand they are very reliable. It is an “automatic” watch movement, with a pendulum self winding mechanism. Unlike most self winding watches, it does not have the ability to be wound up manually.
The watch seems to keep good time, and it has useful date and day read outs (“complications” for the aficionado).
The appearance is attractive, in a minimalist way. The watch case is made of stainless steel, with a matte (bead blasted) finish on the outer sides (the reverse side is polished). The quality of finish of the case is excellent.
A nice feature is the transparent back, so you can see the works at work.
I have read that some owners thought the winding pendulum was rather noisy, but I don’t agree.
One cost saving measure is the strap, which is made from a textile material. It does suit the minimalist look, but it would be easy and inexpensive to replace the strap with something more attractive.
Incidentally, this style of watch is available in several colored faces - check which one suits your taste. The distinctive style of the face is known as the “flieger” or pilot’s watch. Also, as already mentioned, the case has a matte finish, akin to the original aviator styles. However, this watch does not offer a “hacking” function- ie the sweep second hand does not stop when you set the time. For most users, this is not a major issue.
The size of the watch is described as being “men’s”, but at 36mm diameter, I suspect it is fair to say that by contemporary standards it is smaller than a number of men’s watches, but it has a good look, and one which might also appeal to some women.
Accuracy? A mechanical watch in this price range is unlikely to match the accuracy of a quartz timepiece. From a day-to-day perspective, it’s tolerably accurate- presently it gains about 15-20 seconds per day. I believe that is a realistic level of accuracy for a watch in this price range.
Running time? I read a recent review in which the reviewer found his watch could not maintain enough wound up energy in the power reserve to keep it going while the reviewer slept overnight. On the contrary, I have found the watch to have an adequate power reserve.
This is a good and attractive watch, especially at the price, and it would make an ideal gift.

However, this is a small watch, but it's a a nice one! No regret on buyin it! I change the strap to James Bond (black and gray) NATO and leather with butterfly clip, it's an upgrade for the watch!!
So far so good, great product, fits perfectly... changed the strap but looking for a genuine rubber Seiko strap
