1. I work in health care. I love my Skx009k which is waterproof in the bath, visibility of the dial, bezel with red portion allowing a quick reading for respect time allowed for each work and a very good lume for night surveillance.
    I have advantageously replaced the original rubber strap with a miltat retro-razor (wider for more comfort) and a MM300 clasp for quick micro-adjustment when the wrist swells at the end of the day.
    Do not hesitate to invest more for a good bracelet, this watch is worth it.

    sorry for text error, i use a translator.

      Yes, I agree that the rubber strap on the lower priced Seikos are not that good. It’s too stiff for and I just hate the excess length of strap (since I have a small wrist LOL!). Just one of the reason why a metal bracelet is my best buddy =)

  2. I have a Rolex Datejust . Bought it new in 1980 for $1300. I recently bought a 009. I have the same confidence in it as the Rolex. I never hand wound the Rolex so I don’t miss that feature.

      Wow never thought that the SKX009 is comparable to a Rolex. I know it’s a good watch but never thought that it’s that good. And this is coming from a Rolex owner. Thanks for leaving your comment on the watch here John =)


  3. I like the blue and red color scheme the Seiko SKX009 Divers watch purveys and as you mention the red “pepsi bezel” colour gives the watch style. It’s a stylish watch that’ll suit me fine.
    Personally, a divers watch or not I would never go diving or swimming with this beauty on my wrist in fear of ruining it.
    The clear face without any interruptions for reading the time and the self winding characteristics favour my attention.
    Really nice watch, thanks,

      Hi Simon. Glad to know that you like the watch. It really is a stylish watch that will surely commands attention from people around you. You might also want to check out the Seiko SKX007 that have the same specification as the SKX009 but with a black dial and bezel. It’s better suited for those that like to lay low with their watches.

      Anyway, thanks for visiting!
