The most surprising mechanical element of the SKX007 was how satisfying setting the date was. The wheel turns and ticks in the next number or day with the assertiveness of a flip clock. Another unexpected pleasure comes from Sat/Sun being different colours compared with the rest of the week, just to remind you that it’s the weekend.

The SKX007 is one of Seiko’s best selling watches. The SKX007 is rugged, reliable and built to last a long time. It is also one of the most custom modified watches in the world. Watch enthusiasts love it. The watch features Seiko’s well proven 7S26 automatic (self-winding) movement with a day and date display, highly luminous Lumibrite treated hands and markers, a large screw down offset crown, uni-directional bezel, scratch resistant hardlex crystal and a solid etched, screw-down case back. The watch winds with the movement of your wrist.

The hands Seiko have chosen for the 007 are interesting. They’ve gone for a mix of an arrow-style hour hand and sword-style minute hand. At first, this can be confusing, but increases the at-a-glance legibility once you are used to it. A lovely long second-hand helps accentuate the smooth 7s26 movement.

Flipping over to the rear, Seiko has emulated the Seamaster’s feel on with a similar design, adding a waved ribbing which grips the watch to your wrist in wet conditions. This is a useful touch should you get into moist situations, but does remind of the similarity in elements between many watches.

Behind the clear Hardex Crystal glass is a very deep set face with clear crisp delineations around the inner wall. Despite the lumes being weak and unuseful irrespective of their size, the date and hands carry much more legibility. The numbers and date around the watch are detailed in a lovely crisp clear font.

Nice watch

I like the feel of this classic seiko watch - looks nice on my wrist, weighty and feels good quality particularly given the price. Supplier provided a complimentary rubber band as well. Shame it was in orange rubber!

Seiko SKX007K2 from Chronospride

What a classic watch. Love the size, look and feel of it especially with the cool modern looking and comfortable black silicone strap from Chronospride. Feels like it is going to perform in the water and not come off with that strap and my wife already wants to steal it ha ha, no chance. Fransiscus from Chronospride has been a joy to deal with in all my dealings with him and I can't recommend Chronospride highly enough as a result. Thank you Fransiscus.
