Re: Can we trust Seiko for Solar watches?
I've had the 007 version of this watch (with the bracelet) for about 8 months now. Wear it a few times a week, sometimes in pretty bad conditions. Have never seen it drop to low battery. The marks on the watch bracelet are minimal, and less than what I was expecting for a Ti piece. I think the bracelet would wear better on a slightly larger wrist. It's not quite as flexible as I believe intended on my wrist (Also a 6.75" ) Accuracy has been great. It's within 15 seconds (which considering I usually set within 20 seconds as "good enough") and I haven't touched the crown since December. (Maybe December first.) It still looks great, even though it's seen some hard working days in a machine shop and at sea. Most of those days, I would have rather had a different watch on, because I care about this one. But they were "suprise" jobs on days I thought I could get away with dressing up a little. It's my dress diver, or my causal night out diver. But I've been very impressed by the durability.
