    I bought this watch in early 2004 and it is just as solid and beautiful as the day I bought it over ten years ago. Not like ten years is some enormous amount of time, but any big watch guy knows that's quite a while to hang on to a timepiece. At least for me. I tend to flip watches with regularity and I'm really glad I have hung on to this one. I ordered it via Amazon when I was at Fort Huachuca, AZ for Army training and I wore it in Iraq for a 12-month tour. After that I wore it less often, but not because of any specific issue, I just moved on to the newest and coolest watch. Anyway, I recently rediscovered this Seiko masterpiece in my case and I am really glad I have it still. Unlike the current issue model, mine has a Seiko Singapore movement, rather than a Malaysian movement. But in both cases, my understanding is that the watch is assembled in Japan using the same movement. So the precise origin of the movement's construction may not be a big deal. Anyway, mine keeps great time, given its cost. Obviously, it can't keep pace with a Casio Solar Atomic model, which is another favorite of mine, but it still is pretty accurate. I've worn mine all day for many days now and its accuracy is about +5 to 7 seconds per 24 hours. I think that's pretty good. And whatever concern you may have over the inherent inaccuracy of Seiko automatics versus general quartz movements, I will say that the absolute aesthetic beauty of this watch greatly outweighs them. It is a stunner. From the robust case width and bold color scheme to the jubilee band and fit and finish, this model is a clear win. I highly recommend it to anyone seeking a classic retro diver look.

    I've had a Seiko 200m diver for 7 years now and it is just as good if not better than the Tags, Omegas, Tissots and various other swiss watches I've owned. What it may lack in "prestige" it more than makes up for in quality build, reliabilty and just plain toughness. With a oyster style band this watch has been mistaken for a Rolex GMT many times. I've used this watch as my main diving watch for years and it performs better than any other watch I have ever used, super bright markers, very accurate automatic 21 jewel movement, just a great watch. Much better diver than my Brietling which cost me over $1000. This is a bargin for the price.

    Intro:

    In my opinion if you like dive watches, this model is a must have. Dive watches aren't just for diving, they make the best beater watches because they are built extra tough and the Seiko line of dive watches are built extra-extra tough.

    Watch Model:

    The watch being reviewed is the SKX175 which is the blue dialed pepsi bezel version. There is another model called the SKX007K2 with has a black dial and black bezel. When searching for this watch, you will also see a model SKX009K2 listed that looks identical to the SKX175. This is the same watch with the only difference being some of the markings on the case-back.

    Watch Movement:

    This model has an automatic movement in it as opposed to a battery operated quartz movement. The automatic movement, known in Rolex circles as "perpetual" has a pendulum and clutch that moves when you move your arm. This is unnoticed by the wearer. The wearer's motion keeps the main spring constantly wound. This particular model uses the Seiko 7S26(A or B) caliber movement. I suspect that if you purchase this watch now you'll get the 7S26B version. The B version has a couple of improvements over the A version and you can read about them if you do a search on it. The 7S26 caliber movement can be compared to the Miyota (Citizen) 8215 movement found in the Invicta line of watches like the Invicta 8926 Submariner homage. Both movements have 21 jewels, and both are non-hacking. But, the Myota can be manual wound and the Seiko cannot. The Seiko will wind in both pendulum directions and the Myota only winds in one pendulum direction. Both movements have about the same accuracy and same power reserves. For those of you that are environmentally conscious, this is the "greenest" type of watch movement.

    I'm 2 or three years into my second one. I'm hard on watches and the first one I had lasted many years of diving and hard use. And the first watch still works, The face came loose and will turn around under the crystal (now that is confusing when you first see it). This one (as well as the old one) has been to well over 100 feet of sea water many, many times and has seen a lot of hard wearing. The only time I take it off is in the shower. And no the shower won't hurt it. It's rugged and solid and useful for non divers who want a truely water proof watch as well as, obviosuly, divers. The polyurethane bands that come with them will crack and break. Keep and eye on that and replace the band before it does break and your watch drops down into the Cayman Trench or some such place. The metal bands also are not just great. They are made in such a way as to snag and eventually come loose. I replaced the band on this one with one I made from nylon webbing. Both of these watches that I've had do tend to run a little fast, gaining about 5 minutes per week.

    A couple of general notes one dive watches. A watch must be rated to 200 meters or more to be suitable for scuba diving. They will have a screw down crown (as this one does) to prevent leaks around the stem. Pay the extra money and get a self winding watch. Battery powered watches will often leak after the first battery change.
