Since no one has said anything yet, I might jump in.
Received mine a few days ago. Love it! Very solid watch, heavy yet comfortable. I'd have no concern wearing this daily (as I intend to) and let it get beat around. It matches my work attire in a five star joint yet I can still wear it beating around in my workshop at home.
Only issue I have so far is that two pins keep falling out. I'm assuming this has been caused by the person who adjusted my watch to fit. My fault for going to one of those shopping centre cobblers and not a jeweler. If anyone has a solution I'd love to hear it.
That's a common issue for bracelet adjustments. Many bracelets use a pin and collar system where a collar is used to wedge the pin in place. The collar is a really small piece that is easily lost if the person adjusting the bracelet is not looking out for it. You can probably bring your watch in to a reputable watch repair shop and they will probably be able to provide the replacement collars and fix your bracelet. You can also find those replacement parts around ebay or trusted online Seiko specialists such as Yobokies. (email@example.com)
Email Seiko Customer Service: firstname.lastname@example.org what you need with either extra links, or the collar/sleeves, and they'll send it to you within 7 to 10 business days free of charge. I told them I got the Seiko SKA-371 and lost the sleeves (at least 2 or 3 were lost when I didn't know they were in there in the first place). They won't even ask for a serial #. Just put your name and address in the email too. I love my watch! http://seikousa.com/support/

Seriously. Avoid those places. They destroyed one of my wife's quartz watches during a battery change. The stem was bent in two places, and the watch was literally running backwards (no, it wasn't a polarity thing). I ended up having to source the same watch on an auction site and have a watch repair guy swap out the movement.
