SEIKO Diver SKA579 Kinetic Watch

SKA579

Overview

The Seiko SKA579 (5M62-0AF0) is a 45mm men's kinetic watch with a stainless steel case and a black analog dial protected by hardlex crystal. It uses a 5M62 caliber quartz movement that cannot be manually wound but can be hacked (the second hand stops when the crown is pulled out). The watch should run for up to 6 months when fully charged and will recharge when moved.

The SKA579 is currently ranked #129 in popularity out of 731 watches in this catalog. Check availability on Amazon.com. This watch is part of a family of eight watches that are identical except for their color or strap.

SKA579 is only a partial model number. [learn more]

The case of the SKA579 measures approximately 45mm 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 20mm and the rubber band can be removed using a band removal tool to be replaced with another band.

The SKA579 provides the following features and complications:

  • Second hand
  • Minute hand
  • Hour hand
  • 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.
  • Power reserve indicator button which causes one of the hands to move to show the remaining power level
  • Rotatable bezel
