    Wow wow wow, what more can I say. I love Seiko watches because they are at the forefront of technology and this latest development proves it. I have 4 Seiko watches.
    I have a dressy one for when I go out. 2 Divers (one that is about 15 years old and a newer model) and one of the original Solar Seiko’s that was my dads which he wore when he died so I keep it for memories.
    I brought my dressy Seiko from and it looks great. The older diver was a gift, as was the newer diver.
