#TBT The Seiko SKX031 - An Unheralded and cost-effective Classic DiverJust when you thought you knew exactly what Seiko made, mindless browsing usually reveals an additional model with the deep catalog. It was the specific situation I stumbled upon myself in a short time when I was in the middle of purchasing lineage of Seiko divers. I was thinking I'd uncovered everything when today's #TBT subject appeared on a forum and surprised me. Finally, and we'll discuss it, there seemed to be a reason because of seeing the watch beforehand, on the other hand knew I want to it. Let's take a look at some very modern vintage using the Seiko SKX031.Seiko Makes generating a Watch for EveryoneWe've discussed it repeatedly, however it's clear that Seiko is really a watch for every individual. Specifically, they've created a dive watch for everyone. With water resistances from roughly 70 meters around 1000 meters, the sporadic snorkeler up over the professional diver can locate something from Seiko. For me, I became centering on everything mechanical and diving/sports-related. On the low side, you can observe articles where I discuss a few of the 70-meter vintage sport divers with the brand. Since that time, we've discussing all kinds of other dive pieces in Seiko's history. A few things i somehow missed, though, until relatively recently was the Seiko SKX031 100-meter diver.The Seiko SKX031 has been around since 1996Born in 1996 with the introduction of the 7S26 movement (a state serial involved back is 7S26-0040), the Seiko SKX031 was introduced as being a lighter choice as opposed to legendary SKX007. In comparison to the icon, the 031 traded on some key aspects (for example a 100-meter water proofing compared to the 007's 200-meters) nevertheless it oddly traded up on others. It is known as an easy diver, yet it's one which has some relatively high-end features - especially when you think about what Seiko replaced it within 2008.Submariner LooksThe Seiko SKX031 immediately strikes one like a Submariner clone - think of it as the "Seiko Submariner". Having its un-Seiko like crown at 3:00, in comparison to the customary 4:00, and also a case design that can easily be accused of aping the large Swiss brand, the nickname is nearly deserved. Having said that, the case design it comes with the bezel insert is "hashed" for that first A quarter-hour are about that the SKX031 shares with the considerably more expensive diver. An instant consider the lugs, one example is, can have some pretty large chamfers along with a number of calipers will advise you that, despite a Sub-like case size of 40mm, the lug width is in fact wider at 22mm.The Seiko SKX031 Sports an Upmarket DialDial-wise, the Seiko SKX031 strangely moves upmarket versus the SKX007 using its applied logo and indices. There is lots to enjoy while using dial because, unlike on the SKX007, both your hands and indices at the very least come nearer to matching. Plus, the indices, stylistically, remind me of something involving an ordinary Seiko and also the Sub. They're simple but bring a higher-class browse the dial comparing to the 007. The hour and minutes hands are fundamentally the same as the 007, even so the 031 trades the back-end lollipop hand for the white painted hand with a slender arrow tip. To be truthful, I favor it along with the hand design overall. Another nicety is the chrome surround for your day/date window. Your window itself is normal Seiko fare plus this example, alternates between Spanish and English. I'd say my only complaint may be the lightly marked inner tension ring spacer - cheap it isn't aligned - simply because it appears like it's hiding.Other details of note for the Seiko SKX031 will be the use of a fairly easy wave logo on its screw-down case back versus the more widespread tsunami motif. This wave generally represented lighter top replica rolex , non-professional Seiko divers. Moving forward to, I said the utilization of screw-down crown. It's large, bordered by large crown guards, and has Seiko's typical flat top.A cheap DiverWhen I came across the Seiko SKX031, watches I chose I'd try to track one down. A few things i quickly realized was that, for just a watch generated for over A decade, it had not been so simple. Haute Horlogerie Watches were often modified, in bad condition, only in the Philippines, or wildly priced. Then, 1 day, a longtime forum member around the Seiko Citizen Watch Forum was selling his well-worn version for the princely sum of $50. Granted, it needed a whole new bezel insert, services and also a crystal. I came across a Seiko OEM bezel insert for $10, a crystal for the very same along with a service for about $80 slap watches . So, in the long run, it turned out a $180 watch i knew have been brought back to proper specs. Today, an excellent SKX031 sells for from $200-275 with examples falling below or above that determined by luck and also the seller. You will discover a fast dialed version with Pepsi bezel (the SKX033) if you find those colors are definitely more approachable. I paired the Seiko SKX031 having a nice 22mm NATO, but anything will perform. They fit well because familiar size and cozy case. Yes, it's odd to find out a Seiko on the wrist which has a crown at 3:00, however it is a fantastic looking and amazingly classy watch. Seiko replaced this watch with the SNZFxx divers. They're thematically similar but sadly lack the screw-down crown of the predecessors. Price-wise they're $200 replica watches, therefore the neo-vintage pieces are worth the hunt.For a few people, Lets hope here is the start looking at the highly accessible and worthwhile watch. For individuals who already own the Seiko SKX031, the attributes are extremely understood. Additionally it is nice to be aware of that there is a nice solution to the well-known SKX007 and within the same brand.  Oh, so if you feel concerned with 100 meters, consider when you test that depth.
