Seiko SKX173 Review

Seiko SKX173 reviewThere are people with small droplets of styles and then there are people who like diving in the big ocean of style. If you are the latter one then, we have the perfect timepiece for you. Its Seiko SKX173 dive watch. It has a stainless steel case and features a black dial with three-hand function, and an English/Spanish day/date window at the three o’clock position.

The strong unidirectional bezel gives it an edgy look. This is something that you can team up with a formal suit and accessorize with your casual & relaxed appearance. Designed for diving, this watch is water-tested to 200 meters. It meets ISO standards and is suitable for scuba diving. So your money won’t drown if you swim with this!

Make the “Move”

The movement of this watch makes it a show stealer. Automatic movement maintains reliable time without need of a battery. Actually this 21-jewel automatic watch winds itself with the motion of your wrist, so what’s the need of anything else? By the way in 1984, Seiko was first to bring Kinetic Technology (powered by body movement) in watches.

Just “Dial”

Dial is the soul of any watch. Black color gives it a very sleek look. Hardlex is used in dial window which resists impact. This is Seiko proprietary type of hardened mineral crystal used for dial windows. In any ambient light, the matte black dial with clear luminous markers and dissimilar hands ensure that you always have the time at a fleeting look.

Rock “Band”

The watch secures to a comfortable, extra-long, pressure-vented polyurethane strap that fastens with a buckle closure. The band is also not simple, boring or plain, rather small grooves have been created. It can make a strong hold on your wrist and you can have the same hold over fashion.

The text on dial of this Seiko SKX173 is in capital red colored font. And it clearly reads DIVER’s 200 m. This is something you can utilize and flaunt and the same time. The manly black dial and band makes it a head turner! And luminous hands are bright enough for you to shine even when it’s dark around you. So steal the show!
