I have 2 Seiko 5's and theyre both running strong.

Just be aware, the wrist bands are small, even at maximum, my medium sized wrists are too big.

Bought em from Mr. Watch, $55 each. So this deal isn't super hot.
I don't fail, I succeed at finding what doesn't work

I would not call this a hot deal - Get pretty good prices on Seiko at Jomashop - free shipping if you have a USA Address. They have tons of Seiko's for up to 70% off and you can most times fine a coupon. I have purchased here before and no complaits.

- for example :

Seiko 5
Seiko 5 Automatic Brown Dial Stainless Steel Mens Watch SNKM45 ,

Item Code : seiko-watch-snkm45 - This is 37.5 mm with 18mm band.
Subtotal: $59.95
Shipping: $16.50
Tax: $0.00
Total: $76.45

FYI Seiko MSRPs are always heavily inflated, unless you buy from an authorized dealer, in which you get a warranty and the high price is normal. That said, it's not uncommon to find these watches for steep discounts if you buy "grey" market (usually from Singapore, Japan, HK, no warranty, possibly no box and no documentation).

Automatic watches are gateway drugs. Bought a SNKE51K1 last year and loved it, decided to spring for a first gen Orange monster SKX781K1 recently. Looking at getting the SKX007/009 in the near future but waiting to see if they update the movement to 4R36 like the monster line, just hope they don't mess too much with the basic dial/design (except perhaps for giving it a better quality stock bracelet)

Please explain. All automatic watches are adjustable, if you send them in for repair.
All mechanical watches have internal speed control -5 0 +5 setting
That feature is design for that purpose.

I'm pretty sure it was a thread just like this on RFD that got me into collecting automatic dive watches a few years ago. I think it was for an Invicta from Amazon and then someone mentioned the Orient Mako watch. After researching it I got hooked.

If you like your SKX007... don't look up Yobokies or Dagaz... don't do it... and keep your wallet safe. :D

And NEVER visit watchuseek. I made the critical mistake of taking to google upon hearing about the Seiko 5 series and getting WUS in the top hits. 2 Automatics, several NATO straps, and a shark mesh band later I'm dreaming of Omega seamaster professionals and isofrane straps. FML

Orient is a subsidiary of Seiko, and yes they do have many nice watches. The Mako line is pretty nice, has submariner styling that's more dressy than some of the Seiko divers too. Seiko has some advantages though, namely better lume and well documented and widely available movements, and some other things specific to some models (solid link bracelets, smoother bezel movement, higher quality finish/detail, ISO Certified for SCUBA diving). Either way, you get a lot of watch for the money, beats the cheap quartz, Invictas, and Fossil-made designer watches that seem to go for insane prices for what they are.

I've had a Seiko 5 for almost 3 years. A few weeks ago it started running extremely fast out of the blue (~8 hours a day fast, visible just watching the second hand sweep). I tried the "unbind the spring by banging it against your hand" trick, didn't work.

Ended up opening the case, unscrewing (tiny ***** screw) the bridge that the balance is on, letting the spring dangle and putting it back together. Has been within 20 seconds a week since then (more accurate than it was before it went way off). Kinda fun. My dad was very impressed when I mentioned it haha.

Ah darn it ... just missed this. Can't see what model it was now. That's probably a good thing according to the wife. :)

And +1 on WUS. Avoid it if you even have any slightest interest in watches. LOL.
