I had to get it for the price and not sure how many more production runs Seiko is planning on. So I said to myself, why not. It’s a classic in my opinion and if can get it new rather than second hand, go for it. I also really like the 37mm case size. It’s perfect for my wrist. You get a lot for such a low price. Auto, day and date from a legit brand. No hacking would normally be a issue for me but in this case I can look past that. Although it does backwards hack. 😉👍I know I’m hyping up such a basic watch but like all of us here, I really love this hobby and I appreciate Seiko for producing a quality timepiece for a price that almost anyone can afford. Especially if they are just starting in the hobby.
