No respectable dive watch website could exclude these watches. Of all the Seiko dive watches that have ever graced our wrists & oceans – the Seiko SKX007 and Seiko SKX009 are two of the most popular. First introduced in 1996 the SKX007 and SKX009 existed in several guises. All models incorporated the Seiko 7S26 automatic movement. Older models can be identified by their 150m water resistancy, newer ones were certified to a depth of 200m. The quality of the SKX models was determined in their DNA (2). Inheriting important features from some very well respected predecesors like the 6309 and the 6105 – all-time classic dive watches.

Seiko SKX007 – black dial & bezel

Slightly less popular than the SKX009 is the Seiko SKX007. Mechanically identical – the only difference in the two models is the watch dial and bezel colour. They are both powered by the super reliable Seiko 7S26 automatic movement

Water Resistancy – 150m or 200m

The original SKX dive watches were rated to 150m. Latter versions have an improved rating of 200m. But remember – if you plan to scuba-dive with a modified SKX 007/009 – it MUST have been pressure tested. If in doubt ask for a water-resistancy report from the seller or at least written assurance it will not leak.

Modified SKX models

There are many used versions online with non-genuine bezel, watch glass, straps and even hands. These often sell for quite a lot less than a genuine condition model. They might look great – but are they as good as the non-modified genuine models?

The most popular components changed on the SKX009 / SKX007 modifications are hands, hour markers, watch glass, bezel and dial. You can find SKX dive watches that have been modified to look like Rolex, Tudor, Omega and many other luxury dive watch brands.
