The Value Proposition: The Seiko SKX007 Diver's Watch
Hello, 007. Today we’re going to take a look at what I’ve always assumed is another one of the worst-kept secrets in modern watchmaking: the Seiko Diver, model number SKX007. It’s probably the single best value at any price point, in an automatic watch that fits all the criteria of the infamous ISO 6425, which specifies the criteria for a watch to be able to call itself a diver’s watch (at least, in ISO member nations). Yes, it fits both the letter and the spirit of the law, but as with another worst-kept secret from Seiko – the incredible Seiko 5, which we looked at not long ago in our story “A $75 Watch That Looks Like A Million Bucks” – it ultimately manages to be so appealing on its own merits that the almost incredulity-inducing price is the least important aspect of the watch.

Best Kept Secret in Self Mechanical Technology at under £250! Iconic, classic, diver's piece. The 7S26 movement is ridiculously accurate (+/- 1 sec from what I read) for this price point...your are looking at £6k plus watch that isn't close to match like the Rolex 3132 entry oyster, COSC or not. Review said it all from lum, dial, lugs, bezel, dial and crown. Again..for this price point! Amazing engineering. Very interchangeable also with straps and I especially love my Nato Straps
