Default My new Seiko (Costco deal) SRP715

Apologies first, I am new to the forums, but thought this would be a good place to post this.

I found this at Costco for US$165.

They only had it labeled as
"Seiko Automatic
Stainless steel case
men's watch"

I found someone to dig it out and saw that it was a SRP715. A quick comparison and I bought it. It's a nice size for me with extra room on the band, my wrist is 8.25". It is exactly what I needed for work (hacking movement, minutes marked) 4R36 movement.

This is my 2nd keeper automatic. (I tried a cheapie and it wouldn't keep a wind overnight so I returned it). My other is the Solvil "Solar", that one may get handed down soon.

My next one will be a GMT...

My first intended mod will be to put a deployment clasp on the band. I like the looks of the leather, but don't care for the action of the buckle.

Classy looking piece. Seiko watches are like potato chips, though...

Great price, even greater watch! With the Costco "Customer Satisfaction" guarantee, the watch should be good for a full refund for as long as Costco has their doors open!

So, I really like the deployment clasp. I am getting my first nato for another watch (a junker "safe driving award" watch from work. Glow pips, but not hands?) And will see if I like nato bands.

That is one of the nicest looking modern Seikos. Wear it in good health.

Does the bezel rotate?
