Summary: I looked at a lot of dive watches after my Victorinox gave up the ghost. It wasn't a dive watch, but I'd had a cheapo diver years ago and used the timer bezel all the time. So I tried tons of watches on.
Summary: I purchased this watch for my Son and Husband for Christmas. They both love the watch! They say it is very comfortable to wear, and easy to read. They love the illuminated dial, and can't wait to go diving with it! My Son collects watches, so he is very picky.
Summary: I ordered this as a gift for my husband. I'd never ordered a used item online except for books. The seller sent a watch that looked brand new and the packaging was perfect. My husband couldn't believe it was used!
Summary: I bought this watch for my husband in 2006 for 155 plus shipping. In March 2011 (almost exactly 5 years later), it died. It had been sluggish for a while, and I thought it was because he wasn't moving around as much as he used to. But, then it quit working altogether.
Summary: I purchased a SKX173 about six years ago and was initially impressed by the weight and build quality of the watch. Over the last couple years, I have grown tired of its inability to keep accurate time. The watch is consistently about 10 minutes fast after about a week of operation.
Summary: Hmmm... Well, I have wanted this very traditional diver for a very long time. I am a little disappointed with the strap though. It has a cheap flimsy feel to it. I guess I expected better since the SKX173 costs more than the SKX007.
Summary: To say that this is the nicest watch I have ever owned would be an overstatement, as I have owned hundreds of watches in the past from brietlings, rolexes, and omegas to timex, pulsar, and citizen.
