SEIKO SKXa35 Automatic Dive Watch with Offset Crown, yellow dial, black bezel, and black rubber strap

£299.00

Prior to the introduction of the Seiko Orange Monster, and subsequent Prospex models, the SKX Seiko divers were THE dive watch to own. They represent the definitive benchmark in tool divers watches, still hugely popular and big sellers all over the world. They feature 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. A classic watch in every sense, that is becoming more difficult to source, buy one now while you still can!

Seiko SKX range of watches.

Seiko SKX range of watches.
The Seiko SKX range of divers watches has become the worldwide benchmark daily beater tool watch! Highly rated famous, enduring and capable ISO 6425 rated 200m divers watches that are universally loved throughout the world! The range has lots of model numbers that start with the SKX007, and are all basically the same, apart from different dial, bezel, and strap options, with the exception of the SKX013 with has a smaller case, see our ladies section for this model. A quick run through the models numbers goes as follows, SKX007, black dial and bezel, the same as SKX173, SKX009, blue dial, blue and red (pepsi) bezel, same as SKX175, SKX171, black dial, metal bezel, SKX011, orange dial, gold numbered bezel, SKX013, smaller version of SKX007, SKXa35, yellow dial, SKX53, different black dial with red 20 minute & white inner ring, SKX55, same as SKX53, but with orange dial. I am sure that there are probably even more variations than this list, but they are all based on SKX007, and share the same case and mechanics. The range has its ancestral roots going back to 1965 with the 62MAS, but is a direct descendant of the 1988 7002 model that ran through to 1996, it’s replacement being the SKX range, with the 7s26 calibre movement , of which the latest models have the upgraded c spec, of this 7s26 calibre ( longer regulator pins) and this is very much the ones to have before Seiko completely phases out production altogether, these models are no longer listed in Seiko’s current range catalogue!
