Hi all,

Been lurking for a while but on delivery of my first Seiko diver (I have some other Japanese watches), thought I should say hello.

Bought for about US$50 at auction here in Japan, it's a 7S26-0050. Not pristine but works well, seems original and I'm super happy. It came with the oyster bracelet but I tried this Nato strap (complete with 2mm gap) for that Dr. No look!

So my question: Is this a SKX023? I assume so because SKX025 is the blue/red bezel, but I believe there are also SKX021 and SKX027 models - and maybe others?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Daniel

Thank you all for the kind welcome and comments. So looks like it's SKX023 after all - good to know.

I actually bought it to have a go at the 7S26 DIY project at clockmaker.com.au

@7s26b: That's a great resource. It hadn't come up in my searches.

@jringo8769: The offer of help is much appreciated - I may need it.

I just went there, and this is a very interesting site with interesting information.

For example, I have an skx013 (7S26-0030) - black dial, insert, mid-size 200M diver. I would not have known there is an skx015 (7S26-0030), mid-size diver with blue dial and pepsi insert. I could use one of these. And an skx017 - a brown(maybe orange, no big pictures) dial mid-size diver.

Thanks a lot. Book marked.
