Rugged Dive watch 25 Jan. 2012
By Double6 - Published on Amazon.com
This style used to be the "King" of the Seiko Automatic Dive watches till the Orange Monster came along. It is a quality made old school "classic" diver's watch for a reasonable price.

Case/Crown
The case is constructed from solid stainless steel and is hefty. It is a little less thick & heavy than the Orange Monster. The case back is decorated with Seiko's Dive emblem design. The screw-in crown is at the 4 o'clock position and is large and solid feeling & the ears on the case help protect the crown from any damage. The watch is rated to a depth of 200 meters or 660 feet.

Movement
The Seiko 7S26 21 jewel Automatic movement is a tried & true rugged reliable movement that Seiko has made for many years. Accuracy may be off + or - 10 seconds per 24 hrs depending on less or more arm activity. You can not pull out the crown to stop the second hand to synchronize - (Non Hack).

Dial/Hands/Date
This watch has a awesome orange dial that is plain and easy to read. Hour markers are smaller & more subdued than the Orange Monster. Minute and Hour hands are gold outlined, which some people don't like, black would have been my preferred choice. The second hand is black with a small round luminous indicator on non-pointer end. Seiko uses Lumibrite on all hands & markers, this watch is not as bright as the Orange Monster due to the smaller subdued markers. This watch has a Day/Date window that is very legible. The day can be set to either Arabic or English and the usual black text is for weekdays, blue for Saturday and red for Sunday. Day/Date changes do not occur instantly at midnight. It takes roughly 4 hours (11 pm - 3am) for the change to occur.

Bezel
Bezel action is precise, smooth and expensive feeling as you can feel & hear the clicks of the one-way ring. The bezel has small indents around the outside & is less thick with no big lugs, which I prefer, unlike the the Orange Monster, but you can still turn it easily with gloves on. The black with gold numbering & markings on the bezel are printed instead of engraved but sits below bezel lip just slightly which also helps a bit to protect the crystal.

Crystal
Seiko uses a material called Hardlex which is less scratch resistant than sapphire crystal but also less brittle.

Strap
The watch came with Seiko's rubber dive strap which is a beefy heavy duty strap.

The bottom line is, Seiko probably sells very few of the SKX011J1 model now since the Orange Monster hit the market, as it is a little cheaper in price and has bigger & brighter markings on the dial.
But if you want a quality made, less heavy & thinner old school "classic" look Seiko Automatic Dive watch that will never need a battery plus is made in Japan, it is a heck of a watch that I highly recommend.

BULLET-PROOF 12 Nov. 2012
By Charlie B - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is the third Seiko dive watch I've owned.
First one, a Cal.6039-7049 is well over 35 years old. Currently in for refurb.
Got a SKX007K2 - the modern version of my old one. Still bullet-proof, and more pressure resistant.
So impressed with the quality of that one, I just got one of these orange ones.
Basically... same watch, same everything, except colors are different.
I like the Orange/Black colors. Has that Harley-Davidson sort of appeal.
Ended up getting a black stainless Oyster style band - different from the Jubilee band on the SKX007K2.
The Seiko rubber/polymer straps don't do well for me. I just prefer the metal band, and was able to get one with a black finish (which I hope holds up... we'll see).
And... as a fitting tribute, my Rolex of 20 years, a Submariner, is a pile of junk. Right now it needs a new piece on the case for the crown to screw onto. All the Rolex's are weak in that area, the metal is not as it ought to be. Rolex has "just quit" in the past (when new), also to the dismay of Rolex themselves began to run backwards... when they said it was impossible. Then the day quit changing, second hand fell off... you hame it, its been repaired at Rolex more than it one would expect.
Seiko is the much more durable watch... accuracy... mine have been doing about six minutes a month "off" when worn constantly.

(update)

Had the spring reserve on the SKX011 run out within 24 hours. It was 22 hours, for what thats worth. Thats about half of what it should be, and I'd worn it for more than a day. Right now, after wearing it again for 24 hours straight, its been running for nearly 40 hours on spring reserve. Maybe it was a fluke?

(update 2)

The watch went about 40 hours before it stopped. I'm ok with that. Considering I wore it to bed, took it off at about 6:30am and put on the SKX007. I'm sure that if I had removed it after work, say at 6PM, and started counting unworn hours, it would have gone past 40 by a number of hours. I toss a bit when I sleep, but basically... the watch was mostly unwound for those hours. So... maybe it would have gone 44 hours or so. I don't think I'm gonna test it further - it must have been a fluke.

Classic Retro Dive Watch ! 20 Dec. 2013
By weldon Keating - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
While I have had it only two weeks it fully meets my expectations keeping excellent time so far and matches my old Seiko #5H26-7A10 (quartz) diver which I got in 1990, I had an orange face (easy to see underwater as orange is one of the last colors to lose its original color at depth and becomes light colored) put on it in 1994 and it probably has 300 + hours underwater time but has seen better days and needed to be relumined. Having had Zodiac, Seiko, Rolex, Casio and Luminox dive watches over 35 years of diving I wanted to go back to the old style heavy duty Seiko diver which was "King" of dive watches back in the day and this does just that. I got an auto because getting a new battery every 2-3 years gets old and the watch has to be rewaterproofed if you are going to dive with it again. I like the Japanese 21 jewel movement which is proven and time tested. I also got the heavy duty Seiko issue Jubilee band to dress it up and it is very comfortable on my wrist. My diving days are over now but I have this watch to remind me of dive trips of the past. A little more expensive than the others in the SKX series (never did like the red/blue "Pepsi " bezel or black face) but it's so retro and in ORANGE !

Here's an update. After wearing it for over 4 weeks the accuracy is spot on ! While this watch does not have a "hack" feature to set the second hand every time I check it against my atomic clock on the wall or cell phone I can't tell if I have gained/lost time after the initial setting when I first put it on my wrist. For a mechanical watch that's excellent accuracy.

Nice to have a watch again 11 Aug. 2012
By Graham - Published on Amazon.com

Hadn't had a watch since my old plastic Tag (present to myself for finishing PhD back in late 80's) finally died about 1O years ago. Watch looks great, and seems very well made. Good size, not too enormous. Hope it lasts as long as the Tag so the kids can argue who gets it when I kick the bucket.
