The iconic Seiko SKX007K2 is an entry-level automatic dive watch that continues to trend on our gear charts as a reliable EDC timepiece. A simple aesthetic—a black watch face and bezel with brushed and polished surfaces on the stainless steel case and bracelet—makes this easy to pair with whatever you’re wearing, as well as the rest of your EDC kit. Luminous markings on a uncluttered face provide great legibility, aided by the non-reflective Hardlex crystal. Meanwhile, a solid caseback, 120-click bezel and 200 meters of water resistance give you full dive watch functionality at a competitive price. The 42mm wide and 13.8mm thick case provides a bit of wrist presence, but the short, 46mm lug-to-lug measure and crown offset at the 4 o’clock position make this a comfortable watch to wear. Inside, the in-house Caliber 7S26 provides a workhorse movement that powers the SKX007K2’s mechanical heart beating for ~41 hours, along with a day/date complication. The Seiko SKX007K2 provides affordability, performance, and reliability in an everyday timepiece.

Since the SKX007 is discontinued i would rather have a look a Seikos SRP777. It also features the newer 4R36 movement.
