I ordered this watch and it came in a black jewelry box with no Seiko markings or literature. There was a tag on the watch but that was it. The box was obviously not designed for the watch and had been taped down to keep it closed. During shipping the tape broke since the watch was too big for the jewelry box and it was partially exposed in the shipping box. I called Overstock and they said that was not the way the product should come and they sent me another watch (good customer service). However this watch came in a bag in a white box with no Seiko retail packaging or documentation as well. I like the watch but don't know if it is new, refurbished or grey market since it did not come in any Seiko retail packaging. Every other Seiko watch I have bought at different sites comes in the retail box from Seiko with Seiko documentation. If they want to sell bulk packaged products they shouldn't charge retail prices. Don't buy this if you want to make sure it is a 100% genuine product or if you are planning to give this as a gift.
Although it doesn't have a huge face, as is now popular in men's watches, this Seiko watch is genuinely automatic, it has a very smooth second-hand sweep and it keeps very accurate time. I really like the way the watch looks and wearing it on my wrist.
although I just got this in mail it looks and feels good. not sure if I like the self winder in this one. I have had many Seiko self winding watches but this is the first one that quits over nite. I even shake it before bed but twice it has stopped in the nite. will give it some more time and see..
