They are noisy watches.
Mine was quite noisy to begin with but it seems much quieter after a couple weeks of wear.
I just purchased the Seiko 5 SNK807K2 and it seems to have some issues keeping time. I've set the watch on several occasions and then it doesn't work. Furthermore, what the deal with the days saying Lue, Mar....
They are bilingual. (Lunes, Martes, etc.) Just manually turn the day one day until you're back on English.
Will I have to do this everyday? It's a pain, why did they design the watch this way? Why isn't it just English...
How much do you want/how much did you pay for this watch?
Once you get it on English, it will stay on English. A company would have to be completely boneheaded and idiotic if they expected people to set the date every day. What's the point of that?
I hope you are right. I've tried setting the time and date (in english) several occasions and no luck.
at first, make sure the watch is completely wound.
then take out the crown to the outermost position and turn it clockwise untill the day and date clicks over - now the watch is at AM. set the time correctly and push the crown halfway in - one click.
turn the crown clockwise to set the date and counterclockwise until the day is correct and in english.
wear the watch and make sure to move it a lot.
hope this helps.
I have the 809; same watch; and you should know that the combination of no manual winding and a relatively short power reserve is a slight PITA. You'll spend more than the average amount of time correcting it up if you don't wear it every day. You probably already know that that tiny sunken crown is also pretty awkward. Still like it a lot, though.
Eek. I'd like to know as well. Doesn't look like any current model, though.
I will def. try this. What do you mean by until the day and date clicks over?
Ah ha, you may be onto something here. I have several watches so I dont wear this one every day. Maybe I need to move it to keep it going? If so that kind of sucks...
My favorite is the Wenger 7276: I think it's gorgeous. Mine came with a black band but I've since purchased a brown leather band and a steel bracelet. It's got a 25 jewel automatic movement and is quite accurate, and a sapphire crystal. I think it cost me $300 about 5 years ago.
Not my photo, but you get the idea. The sunburst face is particularly beautiful, imho.
He means until the day and date change to the next day. One thing he didn't mention is that at this point you'll be in AM, so if you're setting the time in the afternoon or night you need to go around 12 more hours to get to PM.
exactly. I did mention the AM though as it's quite important.
