A pretty good price on this entry level automatic (self winding) wristwatch. I have it in olive green and have found it to be a reliable performer. You do have to let go of quartz-level accuracy however. Mine loses about 10 seconds a day, so every week I have to advance it about a minute.

A slightly smaller (37mm, I think) case diameter than the more typical men's wristwatch. Even I noticed it and I have freakishly small wrists. Bothered me for about a day and now it looks perfectly proportioned to me. Guys with large wrists may not like the look though.

Hands down the crispest, most easy-to-read face markings of any watch I've ever owned, particularly the day/date complications. Can't quite explain why, but it's analogous to the difference between reading fine print with middle-aged eyes before and after donning reading glasses.

Slightly unusual: these Seiko 5 automatics have a second crystal on the back of the watch case where you'd normally expect to find solid stainless steel. It displays the 100% mechanical movement; tiny gears and escapement spring and a little swinging cam that harnesses energy from the slightest wrist movement. It lends an almost steampunk aesthetic to the watch, although of course it's only visible if you take it off your wrist.

FYI: this model has no depth rating which I think is supposed to signify "water resistant" only. I keep mine on my wrist 24/7 and shower with it every day. No problems whatsoever. I wouldn't feel safe swimming with it however.
