Like it. replaces a mid 1980's Seiko pepsi bezel I'd and lately lost. Band is sturdy, Face color and shine around the metal are spectacular. Appears to carry its illumination for many hrs. I put on during the night and usually don't have any problem seeing time in the center of the evening. The Pepsi bezel will get plenty of attention but it's an activity type watch, not really a dress watch like other identical Seiko models with various bezels and definitely with better dress bands. However, it provides instant awesome suggests the man putting on it.
Showed up new but without instruction guide. My Omega automatic Seamaster is all about ten years old rather than washed and runs - 15 sec/d. This Seiko runs 10 sec/d. Even though the Omega may require service, I am not upset through the Seiko performance. I dislike the truth that is not Japan Made, a budget feel from the crown screwdown function ( does not give waterproof sensation when tightening ) and the possible lack of hacking mechanism. The 7S26 Seiko machine can not be winded through the crown but I have see clearly needs less maintenance that many swiss luxury automatics. If the model had the SKX031K2 bracelet and also the metal edges round the hour marks and also the date window, the hacking and crown winding, it might be unequalled.

7s26 just don't run in addition to they accustomed to, or possibly they never did. I received the timepiece in working order and understood what to anticipate in the mediocre automatic movement (you nincompoops worrying about batteries should certainly stay with Casios btw). What irks me would be that the stock image they're using is equipped using the flat vent strap, the primary reason I bought this from "JAPAN SHOP NINJA" or whatever that merchant was known as. The timepiece showed up on the CURVED vent strap, which is exactly what I'm not going. They most likely believed that the client did not know much better.

This is actually the 'Pepsi' blue & red-colored dial form of the fantastically popular, classic SKX007, that has the initial black face & dial. Both 007 and 009 watches are equally sturdy, well-built, possess a great warranty, and therefore are created to hands lower to future decades. Are all licensed like a true dive watch, best to 200 Meters.

This SKX009 is robotically identical to the 007, same great fit and durable build. The only real difference may be the colour of the bezel and also the face.

There's a lot of great info and reviews on the 007 and 009 versions around the various online watch forums. I really like this watch.

The 009 face is an extremely dark navy, almost a 'midnight' blue, difficult to tell within the Amazon . com photo. It appears almost black in many inside lighting, like a restaurant. The red-colored area of the bezel stretches a complete twenty minutes, 1/three of the total bezel (another 'Pepsi' dials only cover ten minutes from the bezel, the choice is yours that you simply prefer).

This watch has a black rubber dive band (just like the 007), but can also be provided with a stainless clasp band, usually for approximately $20 more. I put on my watches for diving on nylon material NATO straps, if you do not want a stainless band you could lay aside some cash with this particular rubber dive band version. If you want a stainless metal band look, you might want to browse the entries for your version.

If you prefer a Pepsi dial, this Seiko is a superb choice. If you want an excellent Pepsi dial in a lower cost, browse the Orient brand Pepsi 'Mako' watch, available too here on Amazon . com. If you are after an indestructible serious Dive watch, choose Seiko. If you prefer a 200-meter-licensed but somewhat dressier feeling dive watch, browse the Orient Ray. Both of them are attractive and both of them are sturdy like a tank, but Orient is going to be about 40-50% under the Seiko, and helps make the crossover to some conservative office watch easily.

Anything you do, make certain you shop around, and make certain you purchase from an approved Seiko dealer (you are able to verify retailers on Seiko's website) so that your warranty is going to be valid. Beware 'grey' market retailers which might be selling factory seconds, refurbished's, trade-in's, Frankenwatches put together from salvage parts, or worse. Plenty of individuals on online auction marketplace sites.
