WATCHES: Seiko SKX009J1 Divers Watch


The Seiko SKX009J1 Divers Watch is truly a gem in the world of timepieces. We appreciate timeless classics that not only hold sentimental value but also appreciate in monetary worth over time.

Purchased at $280.43, this watch has seen a remarkable increase in retail value, now priced at $769.99. The SKX009 series offers two captivating versions, both boasting exceptional features. The SKX009 Divers Watch features a classic blue and red on a black dial, affectionately referred to as the 'Pepsi watch,' while the SKX007 Divers Watch presents an all-black face. Interestingly, the latter version commands a slightly higher price, emphasizing its unique coloring.

The key distinction between these models lies in their aesthetics. The SKX007 showcases a traditional black dial paired with a black bezel, whereas the SKX009, known as the 'Pepsi watch,' flaunts a dark blue dial complemented by a vibrant red-and-blue bezel.

This watch is a mechanical one with kinetic action, meaning its movement keeps it powered. Automatic watches, like this one, get energy from your arm's natural motion during the day.

Usually, there's enough stored energy in these watches to keep them going overnight without needing a winder. But to make sure your watch stays in top shape, it's best to keep it running continuously. That's where a watch winder comes in handy. Without regular movement, this kind of watch might only stay accurate for about 24-30 hours.

For those curious about the significance of the 'J' and 'K' in Seiko watches, it's all about the manufacturing origin. The 'J' indicates that the watch is meticulously crafted in Japan, typically denoted on the dial at the 6 o'clock position or on the case back. Conversely, the 'K' signifies that the timepiece is manufactured in Malaysia, with the notation 'mov't Japan' at the 6 o'clock position on the dial.
