    New watch. How did I do?

    Hey guys I have been looking for a new watch. Something a little bit dressy for job interviews and to wear at a "professional" job. For my birthday I was suprised to open this (among many other things). It is a Seiko Coutura Alarm Chronograph (SNA548).

    Here is a quick picture I took. (sorry about the fingerprints everywhere)



    By just browsing through their website I really like this one compared to others. Do you think this is a good watch for it's intended purpose?

    I do not know to much about watches but I do like Seiko for some reason. I guess whatever marketing they do works because I like them and know pretty much nothing about watches.

    On a side note. How does one go about changing the time on the alarm? I looked at what Seiko provides you with and it pretty much says nothing. It did say it can be used for time in another time zone or an alarm. The alarm already went off once and I just shut it off but I want to make sure I know how to use it.

    Thanks

    I like it, but Botto will have the final say in this thread. I will agree with whatever he posts.

    I think it looks pretty sharp. I don't wear a watch, but if I did it would probably be something similar; dressy, not loaded with features I don't need, and doesn't cost as much as my car.

    You can't go wrong with Seiko. I just bought 2 myself in the last month...

    I'm not a fan of Seiko Alarm Chronograph watches though only because they won't measure beyond 59 minutes and 59 seconds... Granted, it'll probably be very rare that i'll have to measure time beyond an hour, but it'd be nice. My current chronograph watch can measure up to 10 hours.

    As a confirmed non-appreciator of all things jewelry I have to ask: Does it keep the time?

    Seiko makes a nice watch, I'm sure it will serve you well and it is a handsome time piece.

    If you can't work it, you have no business having it.
    Nice watch, good luck with it.

    Nice watch, but I'd be trading it in for something with a leather strap.

    Those link bracelets rip out my arm hair.

    6138-0040.

    as far as the price, it depends on who your buying them from, and how patient you are.
