Although it could use a larger lume pip at the 12, or maybe a double dot. At night, you just see 12 identical pips, and it's hard to determine which one is the 12 o'clock position, without using your fingers.

    These watches, at less than $100 are true bargains. The value proposition is almost unbelievable, but Seiko knows that getting one of these will lead to Sumos and Tunas, and the odd Spring Drive GS down the road.
    1. I also love the 5 logo for its history and the fact I grew up in a country where Seiko 5 was considered THE watch to have if you wanted something to reliably serve you for 20+ years, which many of the older people around me confirm!!
    + it is made nicer than a first look would suggest, with grooves as a background and polished all the sides of the shield:


    2. haha my thoughts exactly about the lume!!! I use mine at night in pitch dark and that is the only gripe I have about it (and the shortness of the hands, but I changed that by moding it)

    here is mine with a freshly installed sapphire:
