    Your thread, Southpaw, has made me order an SKX007. I got it from Creationwatches for £105 (not the made in Japan version which is £25 more expensive but more or less the same) and I have ordered a wjean Super Oyster 20mm taper for £52.

    All in, it's hardly expensive for a classic watch that's lasted some people 10 years plus.

    This thread caught my eye and really peaked my interest in these watches. Enough so that I also have ordered one as of today. This place is so not good for my wallet.

    The SKX007 is the perfect diver for modding, since there's many parts available at Yobokies (HK) and Dagaz (US). I gave mine the Flieger w/ ZULU strap treat:

    IMHO... That Monster is a yellow Corvette convertible blasting Steve Vai out of its speakers....The 007 is an Aston Martin DBS. Not that there is anything wrong with a Corvette, or Steve Vai for that matter, (I think he was a protege of one of the masters, Frank Zappa, and I think Coldplay ripped off his song). Its not everyone's style.

    My thoughts exactly. Classic styling, clean looks.

    Seiko 007 (and related 009/173, Monsters etc.) are the absolute bomb. Great watches. However, the (now discontinued) Seiko SPORK has taken over 90% of the 007's wrist time for me...

    Love the Sinn/aviator style dial, the slightly larger size, and all the positives of any Seiko diver like great lume, good accuracy, tremendous comfort, etc.
