these are certainly comedown from the SKX .. I'm saddened by this.. happily I have a couple SKX's All of which were cheaper than this drop (SKX009 $125~ and a A35 $150~ on closeout.at the time I bought them) these are doing nothing for me.. I like diver's watches I HAAATE divers "style" watches.. blah oh well .. Seiko has clearly decided to go another direction in general and not one I'm inclined to follow.. so long and thanx for all the watches Seiko. even though the SKX's are more expensive now that they are discontinued I'd still buy one of them over these.

I actually ordered that strap in Navy from Long Island Watch and grafted it onto my Ice Monster. I say grafted because it required some heavy trimming to make it fit. I upgraded a few of my Heimdallr OEM straps to Seiko silicone straps too. The added benefit is the nicer metal keeper:

I've been watching these since they were first announced, and ended up buying the rose gold one from a shop in Spain (on-line). It was about $320 shipped and worth every penny. They have a really nice weight, and looks great. I'm thinking about buying a second one with the silver case. Recommend!

Purposely sat this one out to see where the comments would go first. Frankly (not looking at sales figures) I'm surprised I didn't find more interest expressed for the drop. Judging from the comments (or lack there of) I'd have to rate the overall reception as no better than "lukewarm"? Me—I'm on the underwhelmed side. The new Five line didn't do it for me from a design point of view. The upgraded movement was appreciated, loosing the screw down crown was not. Overall the look wasn't different or exciting enough to get me to spend any money. As an entry-level watch, the price is okay-ish for a name brand--obviously there's plenty of margin to allow discounts as needed. I'm also not a fan of Green (dial) watches but jumping on that bandwagon was obviously one of Seiko's reasons for introducing that color--along with all the other colors--broader appeal, aimed at a younger audience. There's a catch-all term for that in this business: "Fashion Watches." A guy could make an argument that most watches are fashion watches, and I'd be hard pressed to dispute it. Don't tell me that anyone really believes any of Rolex's or Omega's "tool-watch" grade tool-watches are actually used as tool-watches! Yes, you can take them down deeper than you can go, but few ever do. Same with the diver-styled Seiko Five watches above. Dive Watches are the single most popular style of men's watches purchased today--at almost every price level. Fashion-dive watches don't need screw down crowns, any more than they need exotic gemstone bezels and genuine alligator straps. Seriously, who's kidding who? Once upon a time, guys bought diver watches because they were perceived to be more water resistant, and generally a lot more durable/beatable than standard men's watches--in other words, for the same reason some guys prefer pickup trucks to Camrys. Both dive watches and pickup trucks became fashionable after the fact. So whether your idea of fashion diver is a Submariner, a Sumo, a Monster, an SKX, or even one of the Fives above; get the one you like (or can afford) but don't exaggerate the differences or significance between them--they all tell time, and the vast majority of people who see it on your wrist won't know what the hell it is anyway! Suddenly I'm reminded of that great lyric in Van Morrisons's "Wild Nights": "All the girls walk by, dressed up for each other
And the boys do the boogie-woogie on the corner of the street
And the people passin' by stare in wild wonder
And the inside jukebox roars out just like thunder"

Macy's had their exclusive versions on black friday sale for $165 so I picked one up. The dial is much nicer than the skx imo (applied markers etc). The bezel is weird to me without the lume pip after comparing it to my skx but I can get used to it. Since I don't dive having hacking and hand winding is worth the trade off from the screw down crown. Also mine came on a nato and doesn't have the fat spring bars the skx does, don't know if that's the case for all of these. That said, I think $165 to $180 is where this should be priced for what you get. A solid all around watch and I actually enjoy it quite a bit but there are a lot of dive style automatics that you can get for less with similar quality (minus the 4 o'clock crown). Seiko even has the SNZH line that I like a lot and is cheaper (SNZH55)

I picked up the SRPD79 from Kohls on black friday for around $180. I'm really happy with it, no QC issues as far as I can tell, looks good, works great, wears well and gets a lot of compliments. I liked it so much, I wanted to pick up the 61 when it hit Kohls as sort of a poor man's Hulk Sumo, and here it is, so take my money!

I’m inclined to agree. Kind of soulless compared to the SKX.
