For me its not a fashion thing its a size thing. It straight up looks petite on my wrist. And I have small wrists for a 6'0 185lb dude. I love the watch, just need a few more MM to look right on my wrist. You do know that girls are wearing big watches now too right. No way a woman is going to have a bigger watch than me!
I don't wear some obscenely large hey look at my wrist watch. Have you seen the new Diesels?

The issue with this watch's band is it's nylon (which is totally water resistant) with leather accents (which are totally destroyed by water). Odd choice, but I think it was for aesthetic rather than functional reasons.

Leather and canvas will be destroyed in the shower, not sure about stainless steel and rubber but I can image that the soap getting in between a stainless steel band cannot be any good.

It looks a LOT nicer IMO, especially when you use a nice Hadley-Roma 22mm brown leather band on it. I'm searching for a NATO band in that width but haven't had any luck locally.

I grabbed the last one on offer directly from Amazon (blue face), and still love it. I wear it fairly often, and not had one scratch on the crystal. It will lose time if you don't wear it daily or use a winder though, but that's true of most all automatics.

|silphium||There's something beautiful about a good automatic movement, and you won't find better value in an automatic than the Seiko 5. Seiko 5 owners on Watchuseek.com claim phenomenal accuracy. I have a larger version, and it runs about 2 seconds per day fast, which is $10k certified chronometer territory. Of course YMMV.|

It's a mechanical wrist watch. They rarely have a power reserve more than 50 hours. This applies to pretty much all of them, whether it's a $10,000 Rolex, or a $10 fake Rolex. Your complaint there is correct, but it's what separates ALL mechanical from all electric watches. It's worth pointing out for people who don't know anythig about a mechanical watch - there's a lot of surprising stuff about them. But it's not a fair criticism of this watch in particular.
Similarly, you really shouldn't shower with any watch with less than 200 meters of water resistance. The ratings are misleading - they don't account for pressure changes (like from a shower. Or from, say, submerging your wrist in a pool). This watch is a Seiko 5 automatic, so I'm sure it's very solid, so I'm not at all surprised its survived regular showerings - but you should avoid it, and not for the nylon band's sake - it can totally take being submerged just as much as your metal bend. It'll be wet after, but it's nylon - it'll dry.

|XtraCrispi||I bought this watch from Jomashop a year or more ago for the same price. It's an okay watch. It looks nice and feels okay. The only cons I find with the watch are that it only holds about a 40-48 hour charge so if you don't wear it for 2 days you have to set the time. This isn't my every day watch so it's a bit of pain to constantly be setting it. Also with the strap being canvas I have to remember to take it off when I shower. With my Swiss Army metal band I'll leave it on sometimes if I'm in a hurry. The strap is also looking a bit faded after only a year and not every day wear. The strap can get a little grimey so I have to wash it every now and again. Not a bad little watch but not fantastic. Not sure it's even worth the $60 IMHO but I don't think you'll find it for less.|

SNK809K2 is small, especially if you have big wrists, but still a very nice watch.
For Seiko lovers, here are a few more from the same retailer JomaShop.
Sorry about hijacking, but things are moving fast, and this might help out some other Seiko fans.

|tamirtoad||I'm wearing one now. The watch goes about 30 seconds to a minute behind per day, which is ridiculously annoying and has almost made me late more than once. I'll probably try to send it back to Seiko for a repair/replacement of some kind. Other than that, I like it.|

|dreamexecution||I got one earlier in the year and it's not bad with a leather strap. If anyone wants a picture, let me know and I'll repost it.|
