This is the quartz variant of the SKX 009. It is the same diameter at 42mm and lug width at 22mm, lug to lug 47mm. However, it is thinner at 11mm and lighter. Also the caseback is not curved/bubbled. These differences combine to give an extremely comfortable fit, sitting flat on the wrist.
And for people who may think the SKX009 is too bulky for them or who have smaller wrists but like to wear a larger dial watch, this would be perfect.
This particular watch was manufactured in 2006, August. Seems to be in excellent condition yet there are some minor marks from wear and tear. Please check the hi-res photos. It is a shiny watch and not easy for me to photograph. So if you need to see more or have any questions feel free to send a PM.
Lume is very good.
It has an interesting domed bezel insert (technically not an “insert” because the insert is integrated with the bezel).
The second hand hits right on the indices.
You will receive the watch on a new perlon strap (the real perlon fiber from Germany, not nylon). It also looks great on the Seiko flat vent rubber or on a navy blue Nato. And if you like bracelets there is a Seiko one available for this model. It is a jubilee. I’ve also seen a picture of the watch on an aftermarket oyster bracelet but I don’t know if it was a stock bracelet for an SKX or the guy modified the endlnks.
Asking $190 incl PayPal and shipping CONUS.
