Are you saying the watch isn't automatic? I think it says that on the face, but I can't see it clearly. I thought 'automatic' and 'self-winding' were the same thing, and all Seiko 5's were largely the same movement? Everything I've read about 5's is that they share the same two or three movements, are non-handwinding, bi-directional autos.

It is automatic; you can't wind the crown; it powers through movement of the wrist only.

Looks like my kind of book since I train only at home. Thanks, Tom.

I like this watch a lot more than I thought I would - your pictures really bring it out. I hate to say it, but it looks a bit like a high quality Invicta - very bold. I love the thick hour hand.

Where'd you get this one? I don't see it on Ebay or Amazon.

herculodge

I bought it on Amazon about a week ago. At that time, there was one or two on eBay.

I wore it today to lunch. Very nice, but I may have to sell it because it's a nonwinding automatic. We'll see.

Having a style similar to an Invicta style doesn't bother me. I like many Invicta styles, but I take issue with Invicta's inferior lume on most of its watches.

Amazon still selling it: http://www.amazon.com/Seiko-SKZ267-Stainless-Steel-Black/dp/B001REHRPE/ref=pd_sbs_watch_1

How often do you have to wear a "kinetic" watch for it to keep time? I think as long as you wear this once a week you should be fine.

herculodge

Every other day is more like it. It's like a job if you have two. And with so many watches in the rotation, this is rather difficult.

jonnybardo

That's dedication. So what happens if you don't wear it for a week? Does it just stop and then you have to re-set it and then you're good to go? Or is there more to it?

herculodge

It just stops and you re-set it. You want to wear it once a week to keep the oils circulating. One of my students has a Seiko with the same movement and it still works with no services after 17 years. These are strong movements.
