SEIKO Automatic 10BAR

SEIKO SKX031 Automatic 10BAR
Caliber 7S26-0040
Bidirectional bezel (without lume triangle)
Screw in crown at 3 o'clock position
Stainless steel Oyster folded bracelet

This is one of Seiko's most classic design. Although some may feel it is a homage of the famous Rolex Submariner.

The wave shown on the caseback is etched and not completely engraved as this is not a true Divers watch, having only WR100m.

The SKX031 is one of the watches which look handsome on any NATO strap! This watch in black NATO has found her new home!

A very good review on a very good watch. The SKX031 is indeed a classic and reliable Seiko. Too bad it was discontinued, and is somehow 'rare' to find these days. I have been hunting of the '10 Bar' for some time now, and find that its quite hard to find these days. Congrats on the fine watch.

Have you seen a 10 Bar with these watch hands before?
