Nice choice! You could go to war with that watch, their bomb proof. You should be fine using it in the water as long as the crown is screwed in and the seals are good. If your worried about it getting it water/pressure tested is easy by taking to a nearby seiko service center or a repairman who has the machine. It shouldn't cost very much to do it.

So far it's working great, haven't had it in the water yet, I'm sure it won't be an issue.

Another fan of the 007 here. It's probably the favorite watch in my collection and when I travel it's usually the only watch I take.

Another Seiko auto diver fan. I have an 007, an SKX013 mid-size (currently on my wrist on a NATO band), and an older 6309 movement one from the 80s that needs a full rebuild. They have a reliable and purposeful simplicity about them, and I can't think of anything much better at the price, or even at a few times the price.

If anyone knows anyone in London/the UK who can do a full rebuild on a 25-year old Seiko at a decent price, let me know.

College student here looking for a nice inexpensive dress watch to wear with suits as well as casually

 

Looking at timex easy reader or vintage timex w/ roman dial selfwinder around $50+?

 

what should I get? Or does anyone have any suggestions for a similar white face watch?

 

Thanks

Consider a Seiko 5. See this post. In there is a link to a comprehensive list that I made of white faced Seiko 5s: http://www.styleforum.net/t/223261/poor-mans-watch-thread/2445#post_5999742

Excellent 007!

Here's a Steinhart Ocean Vintage Military that I've had for a few weeks now. It's seriously stunning.
