The inaugural Seiko SKX007J is the pinnacle of the best and most affordable diver's watch. It's been around for more than 20 years and we have sold more than 2,000 within our tenure as watch enthusiasts since 2017. As you know, the 42mm case and 200m waterproof rating, as well as the keen design and similar spec to much higher rated watches makes the SKX007 the best value on the market.
Being the J model, it was made in Japan and while many believe there aren't differences, the dial has Made in Japan and generally feels more solid in the hand and if you are to modify it, the tolerances are closer. We have created and sold the Joot Octa Bezel and have fitted that to Js, Ks and replacement cases, and none of them fit as sweetly as a J regardless of the bezel gasket.
