First produced in 1996, the SKX007 is one of several modern divers from Seiko powered by the brand’s automatic 7s26 movement.

How long will an NH36 movement last?

My experience with Seiko movements has always been that they run pretty close to +/-30s per day, resulting in roughly 30 seconds one way or the other per month, depending on the watch.

What is the difference between SKX007 and SKX009?

The Main Difference Between The SKX007 and SKX009 The SKX007 has a black dial with a black bezel, while the SKX009 has a dark blue dial and a blue/red (so called Pepsi) bezel. The bezel is again typical dive watch. It has large and easy to read numbers around the dial, every ten minutes.

Why was the Skx discontinued?

As well, the movement couldn’t be wound by hand, and one could not stop its second hand to set the time to the second accurate. Probably because of these reasons, and because the SKX wasn’t ISO 6425-certified (I guess), Seiko meant to stop production and focus on diver’s watches with higher overall standards.

Is NH35 better than 7S26?

NH35 vs 7S26 The Seiko caliber 7S26 is one of Seiko’s cheaper movements, and is far outclassed by the NH35. Seiko only uses the 7S26 in their cheapest automatic watches, usually the Seiko 5s. Notably, the 7S26 has a slightly worse accuracy than the NH35, and also doesn’t have hacking or hand-winding.

Which is the best SKX?

The most popular is the SKX007, a 43mm, black dial, black bezel version, often credited as an iconic Submariner homage. This version is so popular, it’s been remixed a handful of times to accommodate the different tastes of collectors.

Is the SKX007 a good watch?

The Seiko Men’s SKX007 Automatic Divers 200m is one of the best affordable dive watch. It has the classic and desirable diver watch look and is an excellent diving watch that can also be worn on any occasion. There are lots of cheaply made, bad quality ‘divers watches’ in this price range.
