Delivered faster than expected. Owned similar watch in the 80's. Watch is excellent in all respects except for the watchband. Very uncomfortable and feels quite plastic compared to my 80's version which was rubber and very comfortable. Switched it to a silicone watchband.

Delivered today at 11:58 am Calgary Canada. I had this watch before 15yrs ago,but was snatch away by my uncle LOLS. Wonder why i bought again because I know a Genuine 21 Jewel-Made in Japan Seiko is. For the price, yes its quite above norm. What your paying is QUALITY ,PRECISION and DURABILITY. Always look for the fine print . Others are just imitation or low quality Seiko Watch. Number fine print , Made in MA&#@SIA?. Go for Genuine. Thank You Shop Watch and Amazon ! Seasons Greetings.

By Victor - Published on

I ordered the Seiko SKX007J Diver's Watch through Amazon and received it a few days ago. These are some of the things that I like about the watch:

-Looks great!
-Feels solid and well constructed.
-Classic Seiko Diver's Watch design (takes me back to the 80's).
-The rotating bezel aligns perfectly with markers.
-Screw down crown.
-Luminescence is excellent.
-Nice second hand movement.
-Keeps accurate time (for an automatic watch).
-The SKX007J is made in Japan.
-It is a Seiko!

HASH(0x9eacb5dc) out of 5 stars Great Watch July 6 2012

This is a nice well built automatic watch. Clean design and easy to read. This watch can be worn dressed up or dressed down. Classic design that will neve go out of style. This is the SKX007J model. There is a also a SKX007K model. Both models are however identical and have identical movements. However the "J" version costs about 30 dollars more. You can go to to find out more about the "J" and the "K" models, as there are enthusiast explainations explaining why one is better than the other and why one is not better than the other. You be the judge. WARNING: The watchuseek website is highly addictive and will make you buy watches like buying bubble gum. I have purchased more watches in five months than I did in five years after becoming addicted to I acquired a super oyster bracelet and replaced the rubber strap that came with the watch. Adds class to the watch. Of course you can always swap back to rubber strap depending on the occasion. Cheers!

HASH(0x9eacb840) out of 5 stars THE Classic Authentic Seiko Dive Watch, Day/Date, 200 Meters (Japan) June 15 2014
By GB - Published on
This is THE classic authentic Seiko dive watch, the made-in-Japan version. Along with the Rolex Submariner, this is the most influential dive watch out there in terms of both style and function. It has day/date (in both English and Spanish, there are also versions with other languages including Japanese).
The unidirectional bezel clicks with quiet reliability. The bezel is easy to use underwater, by the way, and the hands and hour markers are easily read in all light conditions, both on land and underwater. They glow in the dark for between about four and five hours, in my experience, after coming in out of the sun.

This is not a pretentious or ostentatious watch in any way, and it's not a 'big' watch by current standards. It comes on a simple stainless band. Personally I wear mine on a nylon strap, or on a stainless 'mesh' style strap that I personally find more comfortable than the factory band. But if you like a metal band, this one is attractive, durable, not overly heavy, and it does the job.

These are famously durable. I've had mine about four years now, I wear it frequently outdoors in ll kinds of activities, I never baby it or worry about it, and it still looks 99% new--only a determined jeweler's search with a strong magnifier would show up the tiny, almost invisible wear marks on the case and crystal.
These are rated to 200 meters, which is deeper than any human diver is ever going to go. I've taken mine to 120 feet with no problem. I trust this watch completely. It's tough, and can take it.

This particular listing is the version 'made in Japan'. Other than the model number, there's no functional or quality difference (in my opinion) between the Japanese factory's output and the Seiko's made anywhere else. That's my opinion. Some others disagree, and perhaps for that reason there is usually a price premium on the Japanese models over non-Japanese. It's up to you whether it's worth a premium to you to have an added 'J' on the watch in fine print.

If you're debating a 'first' dive watch, I would say go with this Seiko. As a real diver, I have acquired a number of real dive watches over the years, and this Seiko is my favorite, for all the reasons above. It just works, it does the job, and it does it well.
It's also very reasonably priced. I found my (authentic Seiko but non-Japanese) online shipped for around $180, and I continue to see them at around that price today. It definitely pays to shop around. Expect to pay $20-30 more for the Japanese factory 'J'. That's really the only difference.
You may or may not ever decide to 'trade up' to a more expensive dive watch, but I wouldn't be surprised if you decide to keep your original Seiko and continue to wear it. This watch really grows on you.
Lots of great info and user threads on this watch on the various online watch forums. Google them and see. There's a whole subculture/cottage industry of DIY modifications with this watch as well.

Important tip:
When you are comparison shopping, make sure you are getting a genuine Seiko from a genuine Seiko dealer, not what is called a 'grey market' Seiko sold (or re-sold) by unauthorized third parties. Those 'grey market' watches may be OK, or they may be seconds, refurbished (without Seiko's involvement), counterfeits, or who knows what. Either way, they probably won't come with any warranty that Seiko will recognize. So definitely make sure you are dealing with a licensed Seiko dealer (you can verify with Seiko on Seiko's website).

Interestingly, these watches hold their resale value really well. If you buy your Seiko around the price I suggest, you can usually resell it for a good price. Some people keep all their box and documentation to increase their resale. Definitely register your watch with Seiko for warranty coverage.

Summary: Great dive watch. Solid, reliable, well designed. Available around $180 (non-"J", $200 or so if "J"), shipped, through genuine Seiko dealers.

Hope this is helpful. Dive safe, everybody.

HASH(0x9eacb7bc) out of 5 stars ~The ULTIMATE "tool watch"~ Dec 11 2013
By ~Ghost Ryder~ - Published on
Verified Purchase
What can I say about this amazing time piece. It is my daily wearer and I have taken it to hell and back and its still going strong.

My dad had this watches ancestor, the 6309. It definitly left a lasting impression on me because this is the only style of watch I ever wanted to wear. Built like a tank with rugged good looks. Its simplicity is what makes it so great.
It is ISO certified to be a real diver and has held up well to my rough life style wether at work or play.
It loves the outdoors as much as I do and the ocean even more. I take it swimming/diving with me every day in the summer as I live on an island and am a beach bum. I have since put it on a black, 5 ring NATO nylon strap which is comfrtable and accents the watch nicely. The rubber strap was great but I preferred the look and feel of the more expensive NATO.
This watch comes in two versions, the "J" and the "K". The K, to my knowledge is assembled in Malaysia, has the day in English and Spanish and does not have the words: "21 JEWELS" written on the dail. The J is supposedly assembled in Japan, has the day in English and Arabic with the "21 Jewels" and "Made in Japan" written on the dail. Being fluent in Arabic, I found this a nice touch.
They both use the same 7S26 movement with either the more refined B or C version. Accuracy is within 4 minutes a month which is very acceptable. The Hardlex crystal has proven to be tough as nails. I would of liked this to be a winding/hacking movement but its not a big deal, esepcially at this price point.

In conclusion this watch brings back great memories of my childhood. Its design has held up well to the test of time and in the past year, has proven to be the ultimate watch for the active, marine lifestyle. 6 out of 5 stars!

This is the real-deal, made in Japan Divers watch. I put a stainless-steel band on it and love it! Looks and feels better than a Submariner. Great value, great purchase!
