Got this on eBay recently for about US$40 shipped. Unlike modern day digitals designed to have the same "retro" look/feel (e.g. this Casio), this thing has a case made completely from stainless steel instead of silver-painted plastic, so it's far less likely to just fall apart after a few years. Also unlike modern Casios (including the G-shocks, which are the only ones I would trust to last a long time), the harder to use recessed pusher at the top left is only used to adjust the time, not to do every day things like reset the stopwatch, which should be quick and easy. 70s/80s digital watches really are better built and better thought out than most of today's.

The crystal is in pretty good condition for a 30+ year old watch (older than me!). Unfortunately the bracelet it came with is a horrible painted plastic thing that doesn't fit properly and rattles around a lot, so it's going to have to be replaced. Tracking down the original bracelet for this would probably be more effort than the watch itself was worth, so I'll probably just try to find a generic bracelet that has the correct taper to match the casing, or maybe even a black NATO or similar?

It's not as pretty as all the lovely divers that get posted here, but it's a lot more practical for me as a daily wear-to-work watch, since I never have to worry about forgetting to adjust the calendar for new months, and it comes with a chronograph and countdown timer, both of which I'll use often. I also really like that it shows the month and the date on the front screen, in that order - as an Australian living in the US who is trying to avoid rewiring his brain too much, I like that when I'm filling out forms I can just read the date off of my watch in the American order without having to think about it.

You can't beat the SNK809, always a great starter watch in the seiko automatic world. 21 Joule movement for only ~50 dollars is such a good deal. It's also more versatile than many watches and considered a more military/sportier option that could be dressed up with a leather or nato strap if absolutely necessary. I own this watch and recommend without hesitation.

A more dressier watch to consider would be the SNKL23. Has some great reviews on youtube for being a great starter dress watch. I don't own myself but have seen multiple people proclaim its greatness.

Happy hunting!

Your information is correct. SBDY029 is the JDM model number for the STO3GWS (Save the Ocean 3 Special Edition, Great White Shark) Samurai. SRPD23K is the international/global model number. The only difference between these models is that JDM version has 'made in japan' text on the dial and case back. But Japanese Seiko site clearly has the wrong picture/render for the watch. The picture at Sakura Watches site is the same, which I'd assume they used the one from the official Seiko site. But just to be sure I'd email and ask them before any purchase. These at Amazon JP and US have the correct picture Shopping in Japan will resume operations August 20, has a photo and explicit description Also Gnomon has good pictures

If you want a Chronograph, then I agree 100% - this is a great choice. It's also available in a Black Bezel

There is also an older version of their non-solar Quartz diver with a Chronograph called the SNAE25 (I don't know that I would buy this one on Amazon as it doesn't come with warranty).

If you can give up the Chronograph, then you have the Monster and Classic Divers to look at.

Good luck!

As you are the expert I am curious as to what mod you think would look similar. I don't know much but my though would be taking this watch and changing out some of the hands and bezel with orange. If that is possible or you have other thoughts feel free to pm me and we can discuss price.

I have a Seiko Arctura 5M42-0E39 that had similar issues. I used this video along with purchasing this capacitor (30235MZ) and fixed it myself. Wasn't too difficult just make sure you take every precaution to not lose the tiny screws inside. I almost lost two but was lucky enough to find them.

u/Seikoholic · 2 pointsr/Seiko

Sure. They're a lot more expensive than they were back then, but every one is available somewhere as far as I know. This one isn't a good example - it was a LNIB sold for an OK BIN price on eBay - but they're available.






Every one is available.

I recommend using camelcamelcamel or something similar to track prices on amazon:

u/throwaraelien · 1 pointr/Seiko

This is a good suggestion - also check out the SNZH53 and 57.

As a physically active SKX007 and SKX173 owner, I'm wondering about how many of these watches will live to see 40 years.

u/Californiadancenow · 1 pointr/Seiko

Yes, the J version has 21 jewels written underneath Diver's 200m.

You need a Diver. Seiko SNZH53

Look at the pictures in the reviews. There's a video showing the dial out in the sun light too. Worth a look.

u/TheC0zmo · 1 pointr/Seiko

Also . . . Seiko SKX007J1 Analog Japanese-Automatic Black Rubber Diver's Watch

u/data_wrangler · 1 pointr/Seiko

I believe that would be the 173 -- Amazon link

u/dreamsofpinkflamingo · 2 pointsr/Seiko

Seiko makes a solar powered quartz diver with chrono that has a simlar look but not the same colour. Have a look at ssc017

u/cwigs96 · 1 pointr/Seiko

My time to shine! I brought you a quickie album of my SSC015 with all the bands within arm's reach. I swear I had a NATO around here somewhere... if I find it, I'll add a picture with that to the album.

Edit: Link to monster bracelet on Amazon

And a link for the Hirsch

u/awww_yis · 1 pointr/Seiko

hmmm, I'm having a tough time deciding between this and the seiko SKX007 how do you feel about this watch?

Edit: Is the bezel unidirectional?

u/mpmcquinn · 1 pointr/Seiko

I had the same dilemma and ended up getting the SGF204 because the SNXJ90 was just so much more expensive due to having been discontinued for a few years.

Pro: The SGF204 is very accurate owing to the battery-powered quartz movement. I can leave it on a shelf for several weeks at a time and it will be only a few seconds off from the atomic clock when I pick it up again, although I may have to advance the date by one day if the previous month only had 30 days.

Cons: The SGF204 does not have a substantial wrist presence because it is so much thinner than most watches that are powered by an automatic mechanical movement. It also has a relatively chintzy jubilee bracelet with hollow middle links. Another problem is that it has a standard battery-powered quartz movement, so you will eventually need to replace the battery once it runs down. Regarding the issue of wrist presence, you might want to consider trying it on an authorized dealer if you live near one to see if that will be a problem for you.

I don't know how much SNXJ90s are running at the moment, but you might want to consider this alternative DateJust homage from Orient, the President, which is currently $299 on Amazon:

u/JoeChmoe · 2 pointsr/Seiko

I'm confused. Is this a Monster?

Other than the face and crown, what's the difference from THIS?
