That is one ugly watch!


Are you crazy, the SKX007/9 is a masterpiece. Easily one of Seiko's most iconic designs.

Don't remember them being £99, maybe that was before I got into watches. I paid around the £150 mark. It's a good sturdy, iso certified diver, with a bulletproof movement and iconic design, there are worse things you could spend your £250 on, thing of all those Gucci etc watches that sell for £500+, with a £1 quartz in em.

That is a bargain, You cant get better value, cheapo rubber strap, hardlex crystal and a bottom of the range movement. I wished I had brought 50 of these when they where £99 on bracelet lol

The day function isn't much use unless you can read Arabic.

They'll be a choice....
Remarkable how the price of the SKX range has inflated since they apparently discontinued the line. This is now probably a good deal, price wise anyway. Really don't see it myself.

Totally agree. The price of pre owned Seiko Monsters amaze me nowadays.

It's probably the most successful Seiko watch ever...

It's in English as well, so you won't see the Arabic once you set it.

Yes they where available from places like RLT watches, my brother purchased a SKX009 from there for £99. I also purchased a lightly used Titanium Samurai for £100. I recall getting a few from Creation for less than £90 in the days when there was little chance of custom charges etc. I got most of the guys one at work, I recall one chap who actually did dive having an Orange monster from Creation on strap for under eighty quid. I appreciate people spend their money on what they want and of course if you need a certified diver then this may be for you. You say bullet proof movement, all the watches I have owned with the 7S movement have been all over the place, they are classed as bullet proof as the tolences are all over the place as is the timekeeping. I Just cant see in any way these are worth £250, better off putting the bit extra and buying a turtle on bracelet, hacking movement, even the turtle rubber strap is far better than this.
Is a skx worth £249 for what you get? Not the point at all. It's a classic and discontinued timepiece and at the moment you can get one for a good price on the price range they are currently selling for. With free shipping from a good seller.

I paid £180 for mine two years ago brand new. That was the going rate at the time. I don’t think a £70 increase is too excessive to be honest. Yup, the watch isn’t perfect but still iconic in my opinion.

So what percentage increase is that in 2 years? and you dont think that increase is excessive. I bet the shops and petrol stations love you lol
I think I paid about £115 for my 007 from Creation Watches about 5 years ago. That was for the "made in Japan" (even though it's not really made in Japan) " 21 jewels" dial version. There was a cheaper option at £100 for the non made in Japan dial version.

I think it's a classic design, but I wouldn't pay £250 pounds for one.

I was just thinking "there's a nice watch"
Got the JDM pepsi for 170 about two years ago. Wouldn't pay this price though. Not worth it. The lack of hand wind is an absolute pain in the arse.

I bought mine before they were discontinued and the prices were increasing every year even when they were still being made. Watch companies increase their prices just like any other business. 5 years ago you were paying around £120 mark so in 3 years prices were up by £60 when I had mine and now they’re discontinued it’s natural for prices to continue to increase when there is still a demand.

It really is no problem as far as I can see, I mean people pay several thousand pounds more than retail for a Rolex and happily justify that. Having owned several of these watches my opinion will not change about their true value, I am sure there will come a time when people pay £500 for one and think they have a top end watch for a bargain price. The real facts are, cheapo discontinued movement, hardlex crystal and cheap uncomfortable strap. If people are happy to pay the asking price, in my opinion it will not change what you are getting for your money but each to their own.

And its their biggest seller. Mark from long Island watch was saying how many he sold in a year. Crazy numbers
Still amazes me the Skx is a classic if your into watches...if your not its simply not. Most people will be happy to have a quartz that requires zero interaction. As for the price yes they were cheaper a few years ago...guess what the price is the price now....i had one a few years back sold it...recently bought another for a bit less than this via creation and im smitten again it really is an iconic watch...if your into watches that is.
Tbh for a bit more you could get yourself a samurai or turtle
The movement in these is looking old now. No hacking or hand winding. I have had an SKX before but got my mini turtle from this site a few weeks back for cheaper than £250 and it is a better watch in every way. I can't see how £250 for the SKX is a bargain I'm afraid.
Frankly at this price I would go for their newer Seiko Sports version (the replacement for the SKX). Yes, SKX has it's iconic days and if you have bought it before or can get it at a significantly lower price than this, then yes. It's a must for collector. But not at this price in my opinion.

And the newer ones are even cheaper than this and if we look forward to the next 5 years, it will increase it's price too like what the SKX did

7S26 is a £20 movement. There used to be tonnes of watches for £40-50 that had this movement.

Is a good alternative and I think may be the same watch with different branding.

I wonder how much the movement is in a TAG

Think you need a Rolex or Patek Philippe before you start getting to really good movements
I had a Pepsi with rubber strap for 2 years, wore it more than any of my other watches. It still looked brand new. I sold it for a big profit, but I still miss it.

Awesome watch.

Like said, it is the cheapest movement that was indeed fitted to watches of 30 and 40 quid and for £100 you could buy a divers watch with this movement, thats why it was so popular, added to that they must of sold 10s of millions of these so no way is it going to become worth a fortune in time to come, you mention better movements, Miyota 9015, eta, Sewilla are all movements that are far superior to the poorly adjusted non hackable one. I would say it is a bad buy myself when you can pick a Seiko Turtle up for little more with the updated movement and stainless bracelet, I purchase a PADI version not so long ago for £269. What Seiko should have done really was to update this with a better movement and sapphire crystal.

I got the Citizen years ago and remember someone saying at the time there was a connection between the 2. I accept I may have been misinformed. They do look a little different but are very similar watches and offer the same functionality.

It has dual day display as do all seikos, rotate the crown and up it pops.The other day language will be English.

Absolutely no shared part but you are right - an excellent alternative, also a good quality watch (some may say better).
