    Oh gotcha. For some reason I thought it was a Kinetic.

    Yeah, you can tell by the way the second hand "ticks" vs a smooth motion an automatic would have.

    If you need instructions:
    https://www.seikowatches.com/us-en/-/media/Files/Common/Seiko/instructions/English/8/8T63/8T63.pdf

    Seiko stopped printing instructions a few months ago.

    I wish, I'm spoiled by my Movic Cowboy Bebop one. Quartz it is...

    Though the official site says the strap is cowhide, def doesn't feel like it.

    I think I'm just going to put mine up on eBay to try to recoup my costs when I get it. I had ordered it accidentally anyway, and I've got the G-Shock Optimus to take care of any crossover watch desires I may have.

    Mine arrived today - 001/300!

    I actually like it a lot more than I thought I would, it's fairly subtle at a casual glance.

    I totally forgot about this! Face is a little busy for my liking (I'm kinda fussy about the whole multi-dialed "pilot watch" chronograph look, although I have a Citizen I really like), but if I had one of these I'd at least be wearing it to BotCon :D 

    Any idea if it's regular quartz, or more of a solar power? I have the Seiko Arnie reissue with the solar battery and I like it a ton, only needs to get charged once, maybe twice a year

    It's a standard quartz movement, no solar. The battery is claimed to last up to 3 years, but we'll see!

    Still pretty good! Seiko quartz stuff is hella reliable, so this shouldn't be a dealbreaker.

    replaced the crappy band with a....less crappy rubber one that's more comfortable and won't wear as easily.

    Got mine, pretty nice, I realized the only watch brand I normally wear are G shock and Seiko, which both have made tf crossover watches.

    I was just about to make a post about being surprised by how nice that band is, until I scrolled up and read the actual text :lol  Thing looks super nice though, I might snag one in black for this Citizen I just got. Been in a big rubber strap phase lately, after finally admitting to myself that most metal bands just can't get sized to my wrist the way I'd like.
