What would the perfect every day watch look like?
It would need to be sturdy enough to withstand daily abuse; as water resistant as any diving watch; highly functional, yet uncluttered; as legible as any pilot watch. It would complement jeans and a t-shirt as well as a suit; be rugged, yet beautiful; perfectly sized, with contemporary yet classic styling; possessing a strong yet understated wrist presence.
The Acionna is our answer.
Water resistant to 200 meters, with a screw down crown, comfortably tapered, steel bracelet with solid end-links and double-locking clasp, internal rotating timing bezel and innovative illumination system; a dial that’s complex yet clearly legible, with large markers and broad hands.
Sophisticated styling worthy of the water goddess for which it’s named; shaped with sharp lines and soft curves; a mix of brushed and polished surfaces, a captivating blend of retro and modern design with an elegant alligator-texture strap with deployant clasp, a size that looks right on any wrist, and gets noticed without drawing attention.
*All Acionnas include BOTH the stainless steel bracelet AND the leather alligator-texture strap, PLUS a small screw driver and two extra screw-tubes. The Acionna comes mounted on the stainless steel bracelet you see here. The leather strap and extra hardware will be enclosed in the leather travel case with the watch. The upgrade options above are for EXTRA straps and/or bracelets.
**Any order including an Acionna, Cerberus or Spectre will ship free!

I've had my watch now and worn it constantly for 3 weeks. The feel is strong and reassuring. The look is most defiantly of a quality watch. I was worried that as I have reasonably small wrists that it would be to big but it fits and looks perfect. I have continued to wear the metal strap and it feels great through all conditions of weather, heat, cold, wet and dry. I have changed the strap just to see what the leather strap looks like and would certainly wear during a more formal affair. Also would like to note that the delivery was very quick.

When I 1st noticed the L&H line, it was primarily for the Cerberus & Orthos. I kept seeing the Acionna and reading specs/reviews and wondering if/when I could get one. Given that I am not an impulse buyer, I kept coming back daily to look it over and again, view specs/reviews. The shine, the lume, the styling of the case and the fact it had an internal bezel, dual crowns, sapphire glass and the venerable M9015 made me want this piece even more as I had nothing in my collection like this as it is an all around watch that is as perfect at the pool as it is dressed up. Gave it the standard 3 week wait and to my luck/surprise, Doc was having a sale on them. I quickly jumped on it, waited the week for shipping and it has been on my wrist since. Simply stunning is my description of the Acionna. Wears sleek, perfect fit & finish, keeps excellent time at +/- 3 seconds and just shines. I just don't want or feel like wearing anything else as every morning, the Acionna is what I reach for as it is just perfect in every way. Many compliments from fellow co-workers that are astounded that it is ONLY a 500.00 watch. Looks and feels like it should be near my Shogun price wise as the Acionna has more to offer at half the price. Personally, Chris hit an over the wall home run with the Acionna and anyone sitting on the fence questioning if it is worth it, grab it now as it is worth way more, believe me. Now it is just finding a way to get the White/Red.
Thanks again Doc for the quality piece, the prompt shipping and overall awesome customer service. Said it before, but I will say it again. Seiko just lost a customer. Very proud to have L&H and Sparky on my wrist.
Now to wait for my Cerberus & Orthos.

I have my Acionna for several weeks already and I confirm all positive reviews. This is one of the most beautiful and I think most versatile watch I ever seen. You can wear it to everything from shorts to tux and with everything - bracelet, rubber, nato, leather and it look great with all combinations...maybe except rubber to tux;-). The design is wonderful with thorough consideration of details such as for example a bit rounded top of the case so that light reflection surround the bezel. The myiota movement is superb. I am taking the watch off for the night and depending on the position I am leaving it (crowns down or up) it's gaining or loosing 1 sec, maximum -3 seconds when I don't wear it too much during a day. I did not have an opportunity to check water resistance, but unfortunately I already checked shock resistance - I droped it while struggling to resize the braclet and it hurt me a lot more than the watch.
