    Re: Thoughts on the Seiko SUN019?

    About a week ago I got my sun019 with metal bracelet, but to be honest, while the bracelet looks very nice, it's also very heavy. Today I could pick up the silicone strap at the dealer and while it's visually less appealing, the comfort is great and so is the weight reduction. I'll keep the bracelet for more formal occasions.

    Thoughts on the Seiko SUN019?

    Well, you guys have gone and sold me a SUN019. I'm going to get one in a couple of weeks.

    Thank you all for contributing!

    Oh sure, it's a Meva Ammo strap from Germany, they have a site on the Web, look them up.

    ~~~Sorry to hear this! I'm guessing you bought it through Amazon Prime, thus the ease of returning it?

    Sure did. But guess what, I'm buying it again. After much deliberation, I've decided that even though it is a beast, its such an awesome tool diver that I'll put up with the size and weight. The Turtle and Sumo will probably get more wrist time but on certain occasions, the 019 will fit the bill.

    I wear the white one more now, but the 019 is my workhorse. It's a huge watch, but somehow I don't care if I hit it with things.

    ~~~that's great! Admittedly, I've been interested in owing one as well. So far I've shown great restraint=

    I keep telling myself, "how many watches do you need?"

    I have one, for a year now, grown to hate that watch. That Kinetic movement is horrible, never got it past 15mn indicated charge, even though I'm a pretty active guy, AND there's no way to charge it outside of wearing it(tried every alternate method from toothbrush charger to record player and everything in between), it isn't even that accurate as I get -4 seconds a day on average(my Longines Hydro, a mechanical, hold better time than this). The way to set the date, and you will have to unless it's your only watch and you wear it every day(making sure you shake it for an hour or two every day), is time-consuming and annoying. Ther lithium battery inside should last 5-6 years, after that it will be an expensive repair IF you can still get the part then. And of course, it does exhibit all the markers alignments problems that all the lower end Seiko share. So no, I would never buy it again, I never wear it now and will probably give it away some time soon.

    Well Bullshark,

    I can PM you my address and you can send that horrible old kinetic along to me.

    What a load lol. It's the same battery as five hundred other models, and takes like ten minutes to change. It also doesn't display 15mn, just 5, 10, 20, 30. but hey, who cares right? If you don't like something that much, get rid of it.
