This Seiko Diver men's diver's watch combines technology, with a rugged and stylish design. The 22-millimeter-wide bracelet with a fold-over safety clasp transitions smoothly into the classic round 45-millimeter case, both of which are constructed of stainless steel with a bright, polished silver finish. Encased safely inside a scratch-resistant Hardlex crystal, the deep-blue dial accentuates the light-catching, LumiBrite hands and hour markers, and is bordered by a two-tone, blue and red stainless-steel, rotating bezel with markers to measure elapsed time. This sophisticated timepiece also sports a window at 3 o'clock that displays both the date and day. As resilient as it is sophisticated, this analog watch is driven by an automatic movement that is powered by the motion of your wrist, and is water resistant down to 660 feet.See all Product description

I browsed both colors, and after reading a few forums, I found out that I can change the bezel to Black, or vice versa if I wanted (ebay purchase). So, I pulled the trigger on the Blue and Red, many people note it as being a Pepsi Dial, but I see it more as the colors of the American Flag, and being that this would be a work watch (I'm in the Military), it seemed fitting. Additionally, the military history of this watch contributed to my decision as well. Noting some of the common concerns with the watch, "band feels cheap and flimsy," and "the watch face is large," I eagerly awaited shipment. I receive the watch and am immediately impressed. The watch isn't that large, but I am pretty tall (6'2"), so it fits, but if I was shorter, I believe that it still look well, and not too large. To note, I've been wearing a Suunto Vector for the last 9 years, and that face is 50mm, and the Seiko is about 8mm smaller, so I was happy. The photos listed on Amazon DO NOT do this watch justice, it looks MUCH BETTER in person. You cannot manually wind this watch, however, a few swings from the left and the right, and away the ticking went, and I set the time. Additionally, I followed the "poor mans hack" in order to synch the second hand to another watch. For that, when in the time setting mode, gently turn the crown counter clock wise, and the second hand will stop in place. When the second hand on the other clock reaches the paused second hand on the Seiko, just gently turn the crown clock wise, and it's synched. It's really that easy folks. Setting the date, day, and time is a snap, and the screw down crown is pretty nifty.
I have to agree that the band feels cheap, so in anticipation, I purchased a 22mm oyster bracelet on Amazon, that I feel will give a more professional appearance, and not so gaudy as the current band. You can also I also order the Seiko oyster band on Amazon, but the complaints were the same, that it felt cheap, so I went with the more expensive after market brand. I also ordered a simple watch repair kit because in order to remove the links on the after-market oyster, you need a small screw driver, as it's not a push pin type. I've only been wearing the watch for about 4 hours at the time of this review, and I think it's fitting to write another review in about 6 months for an update. This is my first automatic, and I feel like I've entered into a new world of watches. Most older gentlemen (and the wise young) that I know wear automatics, and a watch of this quality priced under 200 bucks that matches well in either a suit, uniform, or casual wear is a must buy if you're considering. This will definitely be on my wrist for many years to come. Happy with the purchase, and if your contemplating, get it. This watch will last for many many happy years. Actually, I can't stop looking at it. Remember, if you decide one color bezel, you can always change it, and the band for a completely new look. Hope this review helps.
UPDATE 21JUL12 - I dont consider myself someone that gets caught up too much in fashion, but I simply love this watch. I cant stop looking at it. The second hand just takes me to a happy place. I've caught at least 3 people checking it out when it peaks out from underneath my sleeve when I'm in uniform. One female commented that the colors are that of the American Flag (SCORE!!!). I can't believe that I've lived on this earth for 33 years and didn't know about automatic watches. Someone commented in another post that it feels like your watch has a soul, and every time I walk anywhere, I feel like I'm giving it life. I actually find myself imagining all the gizmos inside working every arm swing. Sometimes I just over exaggerate the swing, but Im a fool. And I have to admit, I just purchased the SKX007 (Black). I removed a few links, and adjusted the micro on the band and it it fits like a glove (another reviewer mentioned that it moves like liquid, and I have to agree. It has not pulled any hair on my arm, and moves with my wrist as I "desk dive" sitting at my computer all day). The band no longer feels cheap, I actually like it. So, the super oyster band that I purchased is going to go on the 007 so I have two totally different watches. I've also caught myself checking out other peoples watches, and I've spotted a few Rolex (one day :) ), Invicta (DO NOT PURCHASE), Seiko, and a whole lotta Walmart (nothing wrong with those, those guys tend to have a family to support and are being responsible) brands. We sit around all day in the same uniform, and now I feel like I have a sense of separation from the drones. One of my old Major's used to wear a Rolex (a real one), and I never understood why. Now, with this beauty on my arm, I totally get it. Again, the photo does not do this watch any justice, I have to upload a pic. So, someone asked me how Seiko makes money if their watches last so long. I told him that people are probably silly like me and get two, and end up recommending, and buying as gifts. This watch is not that expensive, and will last a really long time, so if gifted, it will likely be with someone for a really long time. In regards to time, as of now, as I've owned it only for a few days, it runs a little fast when I wake up (about 6 seconds) (poor mans hack fixes that), but seriously, I dont mind, I'm now wearing a machine, not an accessory. I think with some time, it will settle in. Seiko flys under the radar, and thats good, cause I want to keep my American Flag Colors all to myself. So, if you can, save the time, order both from the same seller, and just enjoy.
31JUL12 Update - Received the Skx007 (Black bezel) model yesterday and changed the bracelet to the super oytser, and it looks great. I did the entire change myself and total it took me less than 30 mins with a watch repair kit that I purchased for about $8.00. My 009 (pepsi bezel) runs about 20 seconds fast depending on which way I lay it at night, and found that crown down, on the side keeps it there. I am no longer super obsessed with keeping the second hand synched with my phone clock, and realized that these watches will do as they do. As I mentioned before, wearing an automatic is wearing a watch with a soul. These watches are priced right, and will last me a life time.
16AUG12 Update - I changed out the band to a Super Jubilee, which does a nice job adding even more heft to the watch (not too much though). Also, it just feels all round more secure, as the new band has a deployant release. Super happy, you can view pic here on the amazon site at: http://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-media/product-gallery/B007VZUONU/ref=cm_ciu_pdp_images_0?ie=UTF8&index=0&isremote=0
So I haven't really found any cons other then the chapter ring.
When I received the watch the chapter ring was not aligned properly and would move left or right ever so slightly. This could be an issue with crystal not being seated enough or chapter ring just being cut slightly too small.
I removed the movement and shimmed the chapter ring so it would no longer move.
Other then that small issue it would be nice to see the bracelet with solid endlinks but I am a huge fan of the jubile since it is flexible and comfortable.
It also has kept +4 seconds. I tested this after one full week of use. So it's very accurate for the price.
Regardless... SKX009k or SKX009J... they are both amazing watches. For $200+/- this is a TON of watch and I’m so happy I own it. I’m sure you will love it too. Have fun!
