I really like this watch (except the bracelet). The lume is spectacular and the "pepsi bezel" look is a classic. I decided NOT to invest in a better bracelet (for now) and gifted it to my son. He LOVES it and since the bracelet has been sized down so small to fit his tiny, 9 y/o wrist, it doesn't seem so thin and flimsy.

The watch looks quite large on his wrist, and he LOVES it! He is constantly monkeying with the uni-directional bezel and messing with the fliplock clasp. I explained how the movement works (it's his first mechanical) and how the self-winding works.

His mom asked him about it and he stated that he really likes it, but he's not "obsessed" with watches. I really laughed at that one. We'll see, little man, we'll see... bwaaahaaahaaahaaha

Here's a pic before I gave it to him an sized it. Seikos fit me out of the box...
I'll try to get a wrist pic with him, later.



Thanks for looking!

I'm sorry to here that, Randy.

It was possibly the most rewarding gift I've ever given.

It's been really fun watching him wear and enjoy it.

I'm guessing a lot of you might understand that.

I really like this watch a lot. I hope someday that I will need to choose between this one and the Citizen Promaster, or maybe just get both. :b

that's too funny - i also recently gave my 9 yr old son a seiko auto - got it in an auction -it said it was 40mm but it looks much more like a 36-38mm so i gave it to him

his little collection has grown -i think he's got like 6 watches now (maybe more i gotta check) LOL

Looks great David -i'm sure you son loves it -its a great looking piece!!!
