ADJUST the expansion band of this Seiko Solar Watch The adjustable expansion band (Seiko sizing clasp system) is quite diabolical. A few reviewers here state that it can be adjusted. So I took them at their word and set about doing it. There are no instructions in the box and none that I can find using Google search. So I will attempt an explanation here. Once you figure it out it only takes a minute and NO tools are required. The clasp can be popped open by pulling on the side with the Seiko label. On opening, it can be seen that the band is set for maximum length; the interior of the clasp is empty. Adjustment occurs on the end opposite the clasp hinge; call this the adjustable end. Superficially it appears that the band is affixed with pins on both ends of the clasp. Not so. Bend the watch band slightly ‘backwards’ and have a look at the adjustable end. You can see a little metal tab which is part of the clasp and which sticks up into the expansion band and hooks onto it. The band has to be pulled away from this…

Seiko SNE179 railroad watch This watch is almost exactly what I was hoping for. I wanted a mens Seiko watch, to replace an existing Seiko watch that I have been wearing for 10 years. A defective replacement battery had leaked and destroyed it. I shopped for the simplest, smallest, watch that I could find with numbers on it. I had no desire, for the date window, as watches that I have owned in the past, the date window was too small to read. I was concerned ordering the expansion bracelet, as I had been very pleased with the conventional link bands on my previous watch. I was also skeptical about an expansion band because of the previous comments that I had read here. As it turns out, all is well. The dial face is easy to read, including the date window. I have a 8 inch around wrist, and the expansion band fits me perfectly with no alteration. I guess I lucked out, but I am very happy with all aspects of this watch. The only item that is questionable, is the psuedo latch in the band. It appears to be…

Simple, classy watch I do not have a good track record with watches in general — I’m tough on them and they usually never last for more than a couple of years, so I don’t like buying expensive timepieces and my wife knows not to try to get a fancy one for me as a gift. I don’t like cheap or trendy looking watches (…such as the recent fad for watches sized like manhole covers…), so I was happy to find this model offered at under $100. In my opinion, it’s a good value at this price.It has a clean and pleasing interface. The watch face is modestly sized and includes a day/date window and 24 hour European/military hour markers in understated size and font, so as not to distract from the easy-to-read main numerals and hour and minute hands. The overall color scheme — silver tone band and case, black face, white main numerals and hour/minute hands, and red 24-hour clock and second hands — is practical and masculine. I can wear this watch with anything from a suit and tie to jeans and…
