Yes, its a big watch but it is quite thin, it wears really well on the wrist, very comfortable. The dial/hands have great lume.

Thank you, no it is a folded (the folds are welded together) Seiko proprietary bracelet that comes standard with the watch. The bracelet reminds me very much of the kind of bracelets on 4 digit Rolex models. The bracelet is very comfortable and works superbly in retaining the watch on my wrist. I personally love this bracelet. Its amazing how much watch you get from Seiko for $200. The watch is very accurate so far gaining only 2 seconds per day.

I'll try to get a better photo soon, as this dial is absolutely glorious in the sunshine!

Wow! That is VERY nice! I have seen only one of the latest in the wild....I think I have to start researching locally.

Enjoy that beauty!

The dial is huge on this watch but it wears small.
The blue dial in the sunshine is something else.
