Paid extra and was expecting a full lume dial but that isn't happening, it barely glows. The lume on the minute markers and hands is ok at best and has clearly been diluted as indicated by the uneven brightness and rapid fading of the glow. The crystal is nice and domed but it distorts the perimeter of the dial face and you have to angle the watch if you want to see the individual minute markers. Typical fit and finish of a Chinese watch, slightly on par with a Seiko 5 line of watch. I gave it to my 18 year old son and he loves it and that's all that matters.

I pay'd $192 aud for mine that's on the way and about the same for the 2 I already own ,,, Seiko 5's down here go from $350 - $550 , so mate ,,,,, NO Contest ! , I have 7 Seiko Divers in the step above the 5's like Turtles , Monsters . Baby Tuna's , Samurai's etc and mate these Aragons are as good or better than these Seiko's . Not in all ways , hell I have an Omega 300m , Seiko Astron and Seiko MM and these ain't perfect at 4-7 grand , ( nothing is ! ) these have manufacturing defects , small yes but come on I don't expect my Aragon at $140aud to be as good as my Seiko MM 300m at 4.5k , but mate the Seiko is NOT 25x better ! nor is my Omega 75x better ,,, no way ! I will say one thing , this Seiko Astron GPS
