Hello,

Just 7 months ago I purchased a Seiko SKA569___3-handed model,
it wasn't my first quartz __but the other was a gadget type many years back. For decades have worn `autos' and paid for them to be serviced too frequently. Oct. 2013__found this Seiko.
And in these months this $150.00 watch has gained .25 seconds.
Off while showering, but have forgotten more then once,, it says 100M!
In a word, I love it! Black dial, great lumen, easy to read day and night.
While shopping I also found a Swiss Wenger, it is nice, but does not keep the same time as Seiko.
Thrilled to find this site, have read many of the comments posted.
Cheers

jringo***

I thank you for the welcome___hmmm__
what is the " bf's" you refer to?
Remember I am new to this, but always curious!
Need to learn the vernacular of Japanese watch collectors, et al.

ah__Ringo,

I checked out the reply____hmm___(this means I am thinking) _or trying too
question___why are so many watch buyers/owners buying divers watches?
Are they actually certified divers? Or just looking for better lumen?
I too have `auto' divers__but have Not gone under for years.
On the whole divers have better lumen ___?
Mine says it is good for 6 months___ hoping I am too.

well the ska is able to do that...all depends on condition...if there is any reason for doubt..check with your local watchshop and they can be tested too....

Please understand__ I was not complaining___thrilled about such accuracy
of this great watch, I have Never seen a more accurate one ever!!!

My `autos'___Omega's, IWC's, Heuer's, none come close to this Seiko,
so light weight____just love it, even told my wife "no more watches for me"
She laughed out loud, with that knowing smile.

Now what to do with the `autos' I own? To heck with that "ebay" stuff. No way.

Oh, a wife that smile's like mine

I have a wife like that, only she looks me in the eye and says
when I say well that's another watch and now I'll slow down
a little. Seems like they all smile, but what would be in the back
of their minds thinking about what we have said.
I think they would have a thinking of the neighborhood
" ROSS CLOTHING STORE ", and just waiting for the right time to
set us up on another ride and hit the button there.
