    cushion case wear smaller than the typical case with their short integrated lugs. better ask for wrist shot on 6.5" wrists.

    Please post a pick of the chapter ring issue. This could be a deal breaker for many and could save a lot of grief.

And while I can't tell if there's been any damage to the seals, there was a film of soap between the bracelet links and between the bracelet and the lugs. I don't want that happening, nor do I want that soap film on the seals.

    The user documentation also says to rinse the watch in fresh water after using in salt water. I imagine that's for the same reason. Maybe this is what you refer to as part of maintenance being your responsibility.
    I don't think i've seen the newest manuals but i thought even 100M was considered appropriate for light snorkeling, pool, shower, rain, etc, with the obvious caveat that it's always a risk getting your watch wet? I also guess i assumed rinsing/drying the watch were done at the first convenient moment for WIS, heh. I think i even mentioned the act of keeping a watch covered in soap enough to do harm =) this topic is so dense i just can't feel i should really get into billion little micro details of this who topic it all in this thread.

    let's just say the less you get it wet, the better your chances are it never leaks. and clean it off if you do! =) (and i believe most people recommend getting it re-checked every year or more or so, to ensure the absolute best resist)

    The chapter ring issue is complete garbage. I understand that these are not high end pieces, but even if you're paying $150 + for a watch that punches well above its weight class (skx007 / 009), there is still no reason for the chapter ring to not be aligned properly, especially on a new release. You don't see issues like this on $25 watches. For some reason people make excuses for them, however, Seiko is clearly capable of producing top notch products and it doesn't make sense to me that they would allow so many defective pieces to constantly hit the market like this. I could be wrong, but I'm figuring that most people getting into the brand usually start with the entry to mid level pieces like these new turtles, 007 / 009, etc. Why risk tarnishing the brand to someone over something so needless and careless? It's probably even more insulting to the loyal customers who buy a lot of products from them.

    Whatever, this is obviously not a big deal in the grand scheme of things, but they're better than this and I was hoping they would start addressing these issues because it's unfortunately not confined to the less expensive pieces. I've personally owned two Darth Tunas and both had qc issues.

    true. even cheap timex and casios have perfect alignment. i guess seiko has to pay the assembly robots more for QC. :)

    I like the Seiko Ōban 大番
    Translated "Great Watch"
    According to Wikipedia (the source of all true knowledge)
    The Ōban (大番?), usually translated as "Great Watch," was a contingent of troops dedicated to protecting the Home Provinces (畿内, kinai) and safeguarding the Throne. The Watch existed in one form or another across Japanese feudal history, serving under the Ashikaga shogunate as well as the Tokugawa.

    Seiko needs to tighten up on this chapter ring issue, and I mean that literally. The chapter rings are loose and are moving around slightly within the tolerance it takes to get them in the case by a robot on a fast moving assembly line. The crystals may not be pressed in tight enough to secure the chapter ring, which is fine if the chapter ring fits precisely, but an issue if it fits loosely and depends on the crystal to secure it.
