The SKX007 heritage can be traced all the way back to the earliest Seiko divers such as the coveted 62MAS, first launched in 1996 it attained ISO 6425 Certification for diving with a 200m water resistance. The curvaceous 42mm stainless steel case fits the wrist comfortably, the flowing sides are highly polished with the lug tops expertly brushed, creating a seamless transition between those surfaces. The lug-to-lug length of 45.5mm and the case thickness of 13mm give the watch an impressive wrist presence, the bezel is unidirectional with a satisfying click, the bezel has a triangle with a lume pip sitting at 12 o’clock, baton and numerals indicate the minutes, nicely painted in white in contrast to the black bezel. The large screw-down unsigned crown at 4 o’clock is protected by guards, sSeiko’s flat Hardlex crystal protects a black matt dial, circular markers indicate the hours painted in LumiBrite for a bright shine. The hands are both syringe and arrow again coated in the same LumiBrite. its second hand has a lumed Lollipop counterbalance. A day date sits at 3 o’clock black on white numerals making reading the date a breeze. On the back, we have the screw-down case back with the Seiko Tsunami wave embossed on it, inside is the Seiko automatic 7S26, 21 jewels, 21,600 beats per hour, a true and tested workhorse with its Magic lever system enabling the rotor to wind the watch in both directions. Fitted on a fitted 22mm rubber strap from Skinx.
Easily a cult classic and a watch that I believe every collector has to have at least tried, so if you haven't here is your chance to pick one up on a very comfortable fitted rubber strap and be ready to wear this one in all situations, it can certainly take it!
Seikos history began in 1881 when Kintaro Hattori established the K. Hattori retail and repair store. In 1892 Seikosha was established to make wall clocks. 1895 saw the production of their first pocket watch. 1913 saw the launch of their first wristwatch, the Laurel. In 1924 the first Seiko was manufactured. Daini Seikosha (now Seiko Instruments Inc.) was established in 1937. Seiko was listed on the Tokyo stock exchange in 1949. The Suwa factory became independent and formed Suwa Seikosha Co., Ltd. (now Seiko Epson Corporation in 1959). In 1956 Seiko launched Marvel as their first true in-house made watch; they continued to make this watch until 1959. Japan’s first chronograph watch was introduced for the 1964 Tokyo Olympics; it was called the Seiko Crown Chronograph monopusher. Not stopping there Seiko launched Japan's first true divers watch the Seiko Diver’s 150M fitted with the automatic Caliber 6217 which later was given the nickname “62MAS” by collectors. The company name was changed to the Seiko Corporation in 1990. Innovation at Seiko continues today with GPS Solar watches.
