    • after having my Aquaracer with the Calibre 5 auto movement fail just before Christmas I had it warranty repaired only for it to fail again for the second time with the same problem as prior. (wouldnt wind and auto movement failed) so now have just received it back from TAG once again. this time a new movement has been fitted, the invoice reads:- 30. MM0364 MVT CAL 5 SW 200 50. TRM1503 MAINTENANCE 1, MOVEMENT CONTROL-REGULATING-SPRING-BARS AND ALL GASKETS REPLACEMENT CASE/BRACELET CLEANING then it goes on about water resistance testing and a 1 year guarantee for function I'm not sure what the above means but I'm just glad to have it back on my wrist and hopefully it performs ok from now on. fingers crossed one thing I am happy about is that TAG do not quibble with the warranty and don't waste time repairing it I'm not canning TAG, just putting out info for anyone who has a TAG Aquaracer auto watch problem  
    • Welcome to the forum peter. As above, absolutely nothing wrong with a Seiko 5 whether you're just starting out, or someone with a hefty collection.  I might wear a Rolex or an omega, but I've no complaints about this old thing (other than lack of hand winding..)  Get some pictures uo and show us what you've got. One of the great things about the Seiko 5 is there are a million variants. Something for everyone and everything, be it a diver, a dress watch, something military inspired etc.
    • @royalwitcheese Generous offer but must admit that I have never needed something like this - it feels like a solution to a problem that does not exist. Too many people do not bother to check any tyre pressures let alone their spare.
    • Welcome to the forum, Seiko 5, a good reliable pair of watches to start with.
    • New member who has always had a wristwatch, but only just gone back to a mechanical one (Seiko 5) in the last year or so. Now have two, but you got to start somewhere.
