I've had my solar Seiko diver for over 15 years, and it's been on 70+ dives. I'm on my fourth band, but otherwise, it's pristine. Paid $75 for mine. Big Grin

Sorry to thread jack, what is one of the better watch communities? I'm looking for something not so thick and rather small (small wrists).
On YouTube, check out the channel "The Slender Wrist". The dude focuses on just what you're asking about. The good thing is he evaluates watches at all price points. Even the Orient listed above.

Thank you both for the insight. I had heard that the replacement has a hackable, hand winding movement. I own an SNK80something Seiko 5 field watch and never really had a problem with the older, less feature-rich movement. It's been reliable and plenty accurate for my needs.
The upgrade nets you hacking and hand-winding. I know you can back-hack the 7s26 in your watch, but it's a bit fiddly, and hand-winding is nice to have.

This may have been stated already, I haven't had the chance to look through all the comments quite yet, but found a few cheaper on eBay. Brand new and all that stuff. Not sure what the warranty situation would be though.

Lastly, would being an officially licensed Pepsi product or endorsed product be a good thing or bad thing?😕

$260 for this watch is a good deal now? These were going for $180-210 just 2 or 3 years ago. Or did Joma pay to be on the front page?

As a watch collector who owns both an SKX007 and an Orient Mako II USA, I can say both are fantastic watches worthy of anyone's collection.

The reason the SKX is so popular within the watch community is two-fold. This watch is much like why the Toyota Corolla and the Honda Civic were (and are) so popular - at their foundation, they are simply products that do what they are supposed to do really well, without tons of bell and whistles, at a reasonable price. And just like many those cars, people who bought the SKX in the 1990s when in came available, are still running to this day. The new hacking and hand-winding is nice, and the movement is definitely an upgrade, but I can say in my day-to-day wearing of different watches, it has never been a dealbreaker that a watch have hacking and hand-winding. Those are simply nice to haves. Personally, I love wearing my SKX on nato straps, as it just seems so natural on it. None of my other watches appear as natural on a nato as the SKX does. On top of all that, the SKX is also hugely popular because of the amount of modifications that exist for it. I myself replaced the bezel with a "coin-edge" style one and a ceramic black insert, but still in the same numbering style that was native to the watch. That way it still looks stock, but the ceramic makes it pop a lot more than the aluminum insert did.

That all said, the suggestion of the Orient watch from majorhavoc is also a good choice. Orient is owned by Seiko, and the movements are still made in-house in Japan. But if you want to have a look at that watch, I would suggest going with the USA version instead of the regular Orient Mako II. Reason being is that it has been upgraded to a sapphire crystal and a solid link bracelet, which gives it a really nice weight. And the white face (if you can get your hands on one), is simply stunning in person. Longislandwatch only has the black version in stock right now, and that is because they've been on sale for $200. Really an awesome price for the amount of watch you get. https://www.longislandwatch.com/O...0200ab.htm

I'm happy to help anyone that may have more questions. But would I buy this watch at this price if I didn't already have one? Absolutely. Take the rubber strap off (unless you like it), throw on a nato strap, and rock out. (Also, don't worry about the metal bracelet the K version has, it is crap so don't even bother)
I like Long Island Watch. They carry some interesting micro brands.

But their prices are always more expensive than Joma. For example they they want $329 for the 007J. And as far as the Mako USA II, they are asking $199, where is Joma is asking $143.

The prices have increased because the SKX line has been discontinued. They will only keep going up due to price gouging and availability being limited to new-old stock.

Good luck finding a brand new 007J at this price point again.

The /r/Watches sub is good. "Just About Watches" is a very friendly and great group on Facebook filled with generally very positive and knowledgeable people who love to discuss watches at every price point.

You say you want something not-so-thick and rather small. Then I'd think you don't want a diver. Is there a style you like, such as a fleiger, a field watch, a chronograph, etc.? Do you want something dressy, sporty, or an all-arounder? Do you have any particular complications you want, such as a chronograph, a date, GMT, etc.? What are your thoughts on the movement technology, quartz, auto, mechanical, or don't care? And mostly, what are you looking to spend?

They have been in business 29 years and have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.

...but yeah, sure

People get mad a Joma because they instantly rip all the tags off the watch, wear it for a week. Meanwhile they cant be bothered to read the return policy. Truth hurts.

A few years ago Taao bought a pair of Ray-ban sunglasses from Joma. He was mad and believed they were fake because "made in China" was printed on them.

What Taao doesn't realize is when Luxottica started manufacturing Ray-Bans in 1999, they were made in Italy. Throughout the years, Luxottica has grown and opened factories outside its native country and now manufacturers in China.

Joma wanted Taao to pay the return shipping fee. And keep in mind the return was in no way due to a damaged or defective product. Taao felt this was unfair and is now on an unending one man war against Jomashop.

Or people receive items that are described incorrectly on their site and have to pay shipping twice to return. They have garbage customer service.

The SKX009 is a fine watch, but IMO you're much better off getting a Turtle (Seiko SRP line) for a similar price or even ponying up a bit more. Better movement (that hacks and handwinds), much better bracelet, still 200m WR with a screw down crown, IMO better looking. And don't be scared off by the 45mm size, it wears like a 42-43mm due to the cushion style case. They're easily found for this price on eBay and were under $300 on Amazon around Christmas.
