SEIKO 5 SKZ253 Automatic Watch

SKZ253

Overview

The Seiko SKZ253 "Frankenmonster" (7S36-02S0) is a 47mm men's automatic watch with a stainless steel case and a black analog dial protected by hardlex crystal. It uses a 7S36 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 SKZ253 is currently ranked #842 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 six 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.

SKZ253 is only a partial model number. [learn more]

The case of the SKZ253 measures approximately 47mm wide (not including the crown) by 14mm thick and is water resistant to 200 meters. This should be sufficient for splashes, rain, baths, showers, swimming and even scuba diving. The crown screws down to help prevent it from being accidentally pulled out while under water. The stainless steel bezel shows minute numbering and can be rotated. The gap between the lugs is 22mm and the bracelet band can be adjusted to fit using a link removal tool or removed using a band removal tool to be replaced with another band.

The SKZ253 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.
  • Rotatable bezel
