I believe this is the SKX013 which is a mid size diver in the series. The SKX023 is the same size but has the crown at 4 o'clock like it's bigger brother, the SKX007.
This watch will likely have the older 7s26A movement as I don't think these smaller models are still in production.
Spencer said:so, SKX0031J? It's a JDM variant?
I got hold of the seller - he says it's a 7S26-0050 - aren't those the white-faced ones? SN 670005. He says he "bought it new" but "off the internet". No box, threw out the extra links. Wants $75, says he just never wears it. Prefers plastic watches like G-Shocks.
The 7s26-0050 is only the case model. In that case will be found the black dial(SKX023), white dial(SKX027) and any other variants. The dial code will be different but the case code is the same.OldHippie1968 said:7s26-0050=SKX027(White dialed diver)
7s26-0040=SKX031/33(mid-sized Black/Pepsi diver)
Of course these are only rated @ 10 BAR/100m
My Guess is that this is a SKX031. Not a bad price for it, in my opinion.
I would lowball, and if I won it make a Milsub homage mod. Domed sapphire, no date dial, sword hands, NATO...Spencer said:so bottom line - would you or anyone pay $75 or lowball an offer on a watch a few years old with missing links, no box or papers, from Craigslist?
Wow, that is absolutely brilliant! While the SKX031's a nice conservative watch, this is just beautiful. Especially if it was a throw-away as it seems to have been.swedefreak said:I did this a year and a half ago. 7S26-0040 with aftermarket Planet Ocean insert, aftermarket 6105 hand set, "fiver" dial form who knows what (I think I got it from Noah but can't remember) and a 24mm (!) oyster-style bracelet from Alpha Watch...
Thanx! I didn't think of that case # being used for the SKX023/25 as well as the 027. Guess you learn something new every day!Pin said:The 7s26-0050 is only the case model.

The hands on the watch in question are not from the SKX031 but rather the SKX023. The case around the lugs is also slightly different than the SKX031.
I wouldn't touch this watch on Craigs List since it can probably be found for less on ePrey with some protection to the buyer
