Wishlist SKX007J

I still don’t have a SKX007

I know that I’m selling most of my watches, but I still look for watches to buy.  Does it make sense?  Probably not, but neither does most of the things I do.  I’ve always wanted a SKX007 diver but end up with other watches first.


Why do I want one when I already have a Spork?  I think this one is more subtle.  It is also more versatile in my opinion.  It looks good on rubber straps, bracelets, and nato straps.  I can’t say the same about the SRP043K.

So why the SKX007J vs the SKX007K?  I think I like it because it is more rare.  Other than that and the fact that is made in Japan, there isn’t much difference.  Here are the biggest differences that I’ve found:

  • The Japanese domestic J has “21 Jewels” on under “DIVER’S 200m”
  • The K has 7S26-002R R 2 at the bottom of the dial while the J has MADE IN JAPAN in addition to the movement #.

So it’s mainly cosmetic and the American domestic K is $20-30 cheaper at any given time.  Why spend the extra money?  Will anyone ever notice which one I have?  I doubt anyone would even know anything about it.  I still want the J.
