SEIKO 5 SKZ259 Automatic Watch

SKZ259

Overview

The Seiko SKZ259 is a 46mm men's automatic watch with a stainless steel case and a gray 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 SKZ259 is currently ranked #540 in popularity out of 2,613 watches in this catalog and is on sale for $116.26 on Amazon.com (as of 2017‑12‑12 00:00 PST - Details). This watch is part of a family of two 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.

SKZ259 is only a partial model number. [learn more]

The case of the SKZ259 measures approximately 46mm wide (not including the crown) by 15mm thick and is water resistant to 200 meters. This should be sufficient for splashes, rain, baths, showers & swimming (shallow diving) but is not recommended for scuba diving. The crown screws down to help prevent it from being accidentally pulled out while under water. The rubber bezel is fixed (cannot be rotated). The inner bezel can be rotated using the second crown to adjust the compass directions. 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 SKZ259 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 inner bezel
