    #SNKL23J1 Bilingual and almost 2 tone dial

    Posted by Val Hemedes on Jul 16th 2021

    I bought 2 of this watch (#SNKL23J1) to gift special friends. I am very disappointed with two features: 1) Bilingual Arabic/English. I wanted English only. But probably my fault for not researching enough. (A previous reviewer mentioned this on May 21, 2021. 2) The black dial is almost 2 toned. It is not clearly seen in the photograph(s), but it is very evident when looking at it in day(sun)light. Perhaps my disappointments are because I wanted a simple and timeless watch and but got a more complicated design (form and function) than I expected. I was a repeat customer of Long Island Watch but now I am sadly disappointed.

    Great Watch for a great price

    Got that watch as a gift to my brother for his new job. It’s a great introduction to mechanical watches. My brother wears this watch every day now, since he doesn’t have to abandon a quartz watch after it battery dies.

    Classy Bargain Beauty

    Posted by Todd Caldwell on Jul 7th 2021

    This is a great watch and I'm actually shocked that it isn't sold out yet. When Mark mentioned it on his YouTube video I couldn't press buy It now fast enough. For the money you pay for this watch it's a phenomenal bargain. I agree with most, as a bracelet aficionado I do not like the band. So the first thing I bought was a $13 bracelet directly from China it should be here any day. The watch has the 7s26 caliber which from my experience in a few watches that I have owned over 20 years is like the AK-47 of the weapon world, they just keep running. The best story I can tell about this watch, goes like this.... Typically when I wear a watch out especially when it's one of my favorites I expect all kinds of compliments and people to mention it sometimes I'll wear a $1,500 watch and nobody will say boo. Last week I wore this watch to work and I got three compliments. Everytime I got a compliment, I was totally surprised. Like..Who me? This watch? Not the other guy? I am not sure why this bargain beauty gained so much attention, maybe the fit and finish or the pretty dial, the sporty recessed crown or just the overall snazziness the watch posseses. After that day my interest was peaked and I conducted a few experiments for myself. I had some friends and family over for 4th of July and I was showing them some of the new watches I had purchased. That bargain beauty was a hit. Now these are people are not watche collectors so they don't realize that a folded bracelet is less than desirable or that you want a sapphire crystal etc. My take away was that this is a classy little piece is a complete steal at $139.

    Great little watch!

    This Seiko 5 is good-looking and the smaller size is a pleasant change of pace. With a low-grade movement and folded end-links, this is obviously not a luxury piece, but it's comfortable and classy. For me, it scratches the itch for a more expensive piece. Service from Long Island Watch was perfect, as always.

    Seiko 5 SNKL23J1

    Posted by Scott Schneider on May 22nd 2021

    Fantastic watch! This is truly the "gateway" watch to purchasing quality watches. The small details are fantastic- the tuxedo finish, the stem placement, the exhibition back and the look of the overall finish. The only downside is the bracelet but after a leather band upgrade, I have received dozens of compliments and it's becoming one of my faves.

    I really like this watch, looks amazing and I am pleased it is the Japanese version. I like the date comes in English and Arabic. No wonder why this is a classic.

    Great looking watch

    Posted by James Matsuda on Apr 13th 2021

    I purchased this watch for my son, who is becoming a watch enthusiast. It's a very handsome watch and looks better than the picture. My son was super happy with the watch. I'm also very happy with Island Watch. The transaction was seamless and shipment was very timely. There were no delays in receiving the product and I received updates as the shipment moved along.
