    What are the general opinions of Seiko's solar chronographs?

    Are they too big? Are their crystals moddable? Should one save up to get one of the more respected and known automatic chronographs?

    They’re not petite little watches but compared to a lot of auto’s they’re smallish so I wouldn’t have any concerns in the size department. If you are wanting the go compact consider getting a quartz chrono. Sorry, no pic as WUS has decided to play the idiot with me again over uploading images.

    What automatic chronographs? Apart from a few small run limited editions, Seiko doesn't really make those anymore.

    There's lots of solar chronographs from Seiko so it's hard to make generalizations about whether they are too big or modable or decent value. If you have a particular model in mind, we might be more help.

    I was speaking in general terms (e.g. Omega makes an automatic called the Speedmaster). Not brand specific.

    Help is not needed so much as open discourse and discussion. How do you find the Seiko Solar Chronographs? Personally, for you, are they pleasant on the wrist? Where do you place them against other watches in relative or comparable terms?

    I prefer the old school battery on the solar technology.
