I bought this watch for my wife because her vision isn't what it used to be and she can't read lady-sized watches any more. I bought my first Seiko watch in 1969 and I've always liked the brand.
All she wanted was to be able to read the time and likes the contrast between the hands and the black dial; however she was pleased with the day/date feature as well. She wears her watch 24/7 so the 100 meter waterproof rating will be useful as well. I thought a solar-powered movement would be a better choice for her rather than an automatic since she's mostly bedridden these days because of illness.
All in all a great watch with the usual great prices and service from Marc!
