The flatness definitely makes it easier to wear under a shirt cuff.

The dome is nice though. My power reserve is domed so I opted for a flat crystal for a daily wearer.

Damn. Wish I knew about the symphony beforehand..
The flat symphony does not have a power reserve?

Does anyone know what bands I can get onto my seiko 5? It's got a stupid 10mm lug but a 22mm band.

Seiko 5. Swapped the dial out to give it a different look and got rid of the metal bracelet. Think I am going to get a dark brown band for it though.

And after I started wearing it again, I noticed that the clicky feel was gone, and setting stuff now has a little trick to it. It's a minor inconvenience, it's not the end of the world. The watch still functions fine in all other aspects. And the rest of my Seikos (5 or 6 of them) all work perfectly.

Hmm.. interesting to hear that you're experiencing the same thing with a Seiko. You're right -- it's a minor inconvenience but it doesn't bother me too much.

Just noticed a semi-deep scratch at the bottom of the watch where the strap meets the casing.. thinking about getting it polished out but not sure yet. It's barely noticeable because it's in such an awkward spot but I'm wondering if the lady who swapped out my strap for me scratched it plain.gif

So I finally got my Seiko 5.. Here are some pics of the Natos that I am currently using on it. The bond looks great on it too, just don't have a decent pic of it.

Spent some time browsing this thread and got the itch to buy a new watch... I decided to placate myself by ordering the Kenneth Cole KC1568 -- with a coupon code from MrWatch it was only $72 shipped!

Great looking watch! The more that I am looking at it the louder I am hearing the Siren song that it is singing. Give us a short review. . . Code please?

Umm, don't remember it offhand, but the MrWatch banner shouts at you when go to the page, something like $10 off $50 or more.
