Do you live an active lifestyle? Are you the type that takes life head on and never backs down? Are you a person who is always on the go and up for a challenge? Do you love the great outdoors with a particular fondness for the ocean?
If all the above applies to you or you want to be perceived as such an active person then this watch from one of the best known Japanese watch brands should excite you. The Seiko Men’s SKX007K Diver’s Watch highlights why Seiko is such a powerhouse name in the world of affordable, high technology, high quality timepieces. In fact, it’s short of a marvel how Seiko is able to deliver a high-quality watch built to the most exacting manufacturing standards in such a volume that its timepieces are accessible to almost all consumers. From its stylish diver’s watch design to its automatic movement, there’s a lot to this timepiece you can reasonably get excited about.
Design: Diver’s watch
True to the form and standard of a diver’s watch, this Seiko timepiece sticks closely to the look and feel of a typical diver’s watch. Rugged construction yet sleek outer shell? Check. Solid construction with black dial and luminous hands with a sweeping second hand? You got it. Outdoor-resistant rubber strap? Absolutely.
Besides the workmanlike fidelity, this timepiece has to all the expected features and appearances of a typical diver watch, in true Seiko fashion, this model goes on to over deliver. While many diver’s watches on the market are perfectly happy to run on quartz power, the SKX007K treats you to a fully automatic movement. You only need to move around and your watch will get all the energy it needs to keep on going. If that wasn’t awesome enough, this diver’s watch truly lives up to its designation. With water tolerance of up to 200 meters, this watch ensures you won’t wonder about the time when you’re diving 660 feet below the sea. Solid rendition of a classic diver’s watch.
SKX007K Japanese movement
Usually, when people hear the phrase ‘automatic movement’ their minds quickly turn to a scene where a proud manual watch owner would dutifully wind his or her watch so the timepiece can keep on ticking. Say goodbye to this familiar and quaint image. With Japanese automatic movement, you don’t have to do anything except move around. The SKX007K totally delivers on the promise of automatic movement. You just need to put this unit on and forget about it. Quite a handy feature, if you ask me. The last thing you’d want to worry about when you’re frolicking under the waves at 660 feet is to wind your timepiece.
As mentioned above, the fact that this Seiko model is able to tolerate water down to a depth of 200 meters is something to applaud about. This model truly delivers on its designation as a diver’s watch. Think about it you don’t really have a diver’s watch if you can’t dive all that deep. With this model, you can. In keeping with Seiko’s solid delivery of all the features that make for a great diver’s watch, this timepiece is also luminous. Again, it’s all about comfort and worry-free operation. Fumbling around with your watch so it lights up while you’re swimming around deep under the sea is not exactly reassuring or comforting. Thankfully, with the Seiko Men’s SKX007K Diver’s watch, you only need to put on your watch and stop worrying about whether you’ll know the time when you’re down deep in the ocean.
Make no mistake about it, this model yet again highlights why Seiko is one of the ‘go to’ brands when it comes to active lifestyle, high quality, yet affordable timepieces. It would be very hard to go wrong with this diver’s watch.
