This 7002 was sent to me in pieces for an overhaul with a new crystal to install. I received it in pieces with a 31.5 mm sapphire crystal. My 1st thought was the wrong size crystal but after looking closer at the case I realized it was the correct crystal, but it was a SKX case. Quite the franken mod with all AM parts. Before doing anything I contacted the owner to let them know what he had. Anyways the overhaul went fine with 1 little glitch. The 1 piece stem/crown assembly doesn’t quite fit right. The crown doesn’t seat all the way and bottoms out at less than half a turn. It also won’t disengage the keyless works. I tried one of mine to check and that works just fine. Got a SKX crown and a new stem on order to fix that issue. Just a bad AM I’m guessing. Overhauled the movement, new crystal, replaced the missing pip.

Both the 7002-700X and the SKX007 take the exact same stem and crown assembly. Seiko part number 70E11NS1 Exact same stem and crown assembly later moved to using a new part number namely 1E70A3SNW0 but it is the same thing so naturally interchanges perfectly.

They looked the same but the one with the watch doesn't screw down right, mine did though. I figured it was a bad or damaged AM. Being a 1 piece i can't switch the crown nor reuse the stem so a new SKX crown and 7009 stem is on order.

But... This is a true 4 o'clock crown, how can the case be from an skx?
31.5mm press in crystal with a nylon gasket, notch at 12 for the chapter ring, unidirectional click spring instead of a click ball for the bezel, it’s an SKX case.

SKX has the crown at 3.45 and yours has the crown at 4 like all 7002's.

Maybe a transitional 7002 case if such a thing exists? If not then possibly fake...

Possibly AM. The watches sent to me for service are both mods. (The other is a 6309-7290)
