Beautiful watch. I can relate as I have been wearing my SKX007 almost non-stop since I bought it off Evil-bay.

I collect Seiko Dive watches and love the dials.

My collection is Seiko Dive watches even though I don’t dive. I just love the different designs and styles

commented on Do you swim with your watches? ·

Only my 200m rated ones will I swim with. I don’t dive but enjoy recreational swimming in the ocean and lakes. We do have a restored 1937 Old Town Canoe that we keep up in Wolfeboro NH and my divers are perfectly suited for that as well. Especially when flipping over.

commented on Do you measure your watches' accuracy? And if you do, by what means? ·

I’m new to collecting mechanical watches and initially started checking my daily watch against my iPhone. I do this with any new watch also. But I will check my daily wear watch once a week or so since I know my collection of Seiko divers are all within +/- 5-10 seconds per day with one exception. The one surprise is my least expensive SKX007 from 2017 is +/- 2 sec per day consistently. I check this one daily as I have been wearing it daily for a few weeks as it is my favorite. Blows my mind.
