    I have the bigger model. Well two of them. And I love them.
    I heard lot's of good things about that watch, and hard to beat for that price. I was pretty close to ordering one myself. But I got the bigger one, mostly because of the WR rating. 30m on that one, and 100m on the ones I got..

    I love mine. Had it since January. One scratch when I dropped it onto the floor, but it's hardly noticeable. Other than that, I haven't found a problem with the WR (just don't shower or swim with it), and it's working great. I wore it while playing volleyball, and it's stood up perfect to all those impacts. And, don't ask how, but mine's less than -2 a day. Somewhere between -2 and -1.

    Thanks.
    Found a simple watch that will give you the time.
    I bought the 100m.

    I had a green one,it went in the washing machine on a full cycle,didnt even lose a second came out non the worse,it came off my wrist in the pit of a dropkick murphys gig,i was looking for something that someone else had dropped and spotted a watch on the floor ,I thought it was another watch then realized it was mine,sadly the glass at the back was smashed,so that was the end of my Seiko 5,i think I might need another one in my life.

    I have the tan version. Keeps great time, but I don't know about how waterproof it is, don't spend much time around water.

    Good watch for the money...The 7S26 auto movement has proven to be a fairly robust time keeper.

    I ordered mine off of Watch Center on Amazon for around the same price. Although it's small, I like it. I like how it's simple, practical, and an automatic. I don't wear any of my watches, including my G-Shocks, in the shower or anything that involves handling water with my hands so I don't know how water-resistant it is. If you want to stay on the safe side, the SNZG's look like a good option like the ones Vesp has.

    I have one like the one in the link, had it for about a year, love it. You do have to wear it every day, for more than 4 hours it seem or it will stop, but it's easy to start up again and set.
