First off, my watch came from the seller AUWatches-First and the service was excellent. I ordered the watch on 9 October and received it in Australia on 17 October. The watch came with a Seiko box and all documents, with a stamped warranty card.
The watch itself is very good, typical of Seiko. Everything functions perfectly and it keeps good time for an automatic. I am delighted with the watch. I have swapped the stainless bracelet for a blue leather strap, which is my personal preference, not because the bracelet was uncomfortable or difficult to adjust.
I have removed a star because the chapter ring markings are slightly misaligned in relation to the dial indexes, an issue that has plagued some Seiko watches, but it does not bother me enough to return or exchange the watch. The bezel though is fine and rotates smoothly.
Overall, another quality Seiko timepiece.
