I don’t know anything about the Amazon supplier, but the watch itself is wonderful I’ve had this watch for 15 years. This watch is very lightweight but also very durable. The mode change I use most often is to display T2 – to show the time in a different time zone in the digital panel while traveling. Second, the watch is beautiful and has all the functionality I need like showing second time zone, alarm and chronograph. When I opened the box and put on my wrist, I was surprised at how light the watch is. The titanium case and band is very durable, but light as a feather.

Comments: My uncle had been wearing the Seiko SKX007 (although his may be a different model number) since the early 80s. I was a little kid back then and I may not have consciously noticed his watch, But his watch must have left some impact,... These include two quartz Bulovas, one quartz Swatch, and most recently an automatic Omega Seamaster Professional (the James Bond model). And yet, none of these ever seemed to match my mind’s idealized image of what a divers watch should be. A short time after buying the Omega, I came across the Seiko on some watch aficionado website. I recognized it as the watch my uncle has worn all these years and was surprised to realize that this very watch was the image against which I judged all other diver watches. But having just spent a bundle on a watch I couldn’t justify the purchase. Out of nowhere, my not-a-year-old Omega started gaining close to an hour a day A bizarre circumstance followed by an immediate delivery to the local Omega authorized dealer. It would take nearly a month until my watch was repaired and returned. I hadn’t seen my uncle’s watch for some time and just expected a let down of some sort. I was concerned the face would just look radically different from what I hoped for, and I’d be stuck with a watch I didn’t want to wear.

Comments: I wanted a tough, all-around watch for outdoor activities (mostly hiking/backpacking) and travel. I think the PRG-270 does that quite well for a lot less than some ABC (altimeter-barometer-compass) watches out there. It will tell me the time pretty much anywhere in the world, has more alarms that I will actually use, a stopwatch that goes up to hundreds of hours, a countdown timer, sunrise/sunset times (more useful than I thought it would be–nice to know... As my wife pointed out, being 400 feet off at 11,000 feet is only an error of 4. Sure, I’d like it to be more accurate, but I mostly need the altimeter to help verify roughly where I think I am on the map. The compass has seemed quite accurate and very handy for quick checks against the map (the trail should make a turn west pretty soon, etc. ) I haven’t used the barometer much, but I think it will be more useful come summer to give a sense of impending storms. If you want a simple watch, there may be better choices–though the basic watch functions are about as complex as any Casio g-shock or similar digital. I had moved away from the Casio lines in.
