Seiko SKX007j Coffee Roast

Seiko

Regular price £ 0.00 GBP £ 0.00 GBP Sale

The SKX007 from Seiko is highly regarded as one of the most iconic modern diving watches, and this particular one is very special, in fact unique! 

It was one of our returning customers who traded in this watch to fund his next purchase. He has done a brilliant job with this watch. The dial has an intriguing  dirty look. The normally white lume dots now instead resemble aged tritium, and the black dial has developed a subtle tropical appearance. The technique used to achieve this organic effect involves the use of coffee.

The bezel which originally is black has been bleached to a soft milky grey tone - achieving this is a laborious manual rubbing exercise - in addition to bleach it probably took some coffee to achieve this too!  

The overall result is a total transformation of the originally clean black SKX - an absolutely stunning vintage military looking diving watch - think Rolex Milsub!

It is fitted on a Super Oyster bracelet from Strapcode UK which is specifically designed for this watch. It has solid end links, a very good clasp and has a great quality feel to it overall. But this watch is a real strap monster and its vintage military style is particularly suitable for the military green one-piece NATO strap which it comes with as well. 

The j in SKX007j means it is manufactured in Japan. This is an ISO-certified diving watch equipped with a reliable 7s26 automatic movement featuring a day and date complicaiton and a 200 meter water resistance.

This watch comes in an original Seiko box, with an additional army green NATO strap, a spring bar tool, certificate of authenticity and one year warranty from Arlington watches.
