SEIKO 5 SKX557 Automatic Watch

SKX557

Overview

The Seiko SKX557 (7S26-0280) is a 37mm men's automatic watch with a stainless steel case and a silver analog dial protected by hardlex crystal. It uses a 7S26 caliber self-winding mechanical movement that cannot be manually wound or hacked (the second hand does not stop when the crown is pulled out). It ticks 6 times per second which gives the second hand a smoother movement than quartz watches which tick once per second. The watch should run for up to 43 hours when fully wound and will self-wind when moved.

The SKX557 is currently ranked #1,509 in popularity out of 2,613 watches in this catalog. This watch does not appear to be available for purchase on any .com site. This watch is part of a family of nine watches that are identical except for their color or strap. You can see the other variations in this family as well as other similar models on the left side of the pagein the similar watches section below. By clicking the checkbox under a similar model you can compare that model with this one side-by-side. We use nearly 100 different weighted criteria to calculate which models are the most similar to one another.

SKX557 is only a partial model number. [learn more]

The case of the SKX557 measures approximately 37mm wide (not including the crown) by 11mm thick and is water resistant to 30 meters. This should be sufficient for splashes & rain but is not recommended for baths, showers, swimming or diving. The stainless steel bezel is fixed (cannot be rotated). The gap between the lugs is 18mm and the bracelet band can be adjusted to fit using a link removal tool but may be difficult to replace with another band due to the shape of the lugs.

The SKX557 provides the following features and complications:

  • Second hand
  • Minute hand
  • Hour hand
  • Day window to show the day of the week including two language choices for the day (English and either Spanish, Arabic, Kanji, Chinese, French, German, Danish or Roman Numerals). When setting the day keep turning the crown to get to the next language. On most models SUN will be red and on some models SAT will be blue.
  • Date window to show the day of the month. Note that some watches may be damaged if you attempt to change the date between 8:00 PM and 2:00 AM, in which case you should change the time to be outside that range first then reset the time after adjusting the date. Check your watch manual for details.
