SEIKO SKA098 Kinetic Watch

SKA098

Overview

The Seiko SKA098 (5M62-0D30) is a 40mm men's kinetic watch with a stainless steel case and a blue 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 SKA098 is currently ranked #84 in popularity out of 510 watches in this catalog and is on sale for $299.00 on Amazon.com (as of 2017‑01‑18 07:01 PST - Details). This watch is part of a family of two watches that are identical except for their color or strap.

SKA098 is only a partial model number. [learn more]

The case of the SKA098 measures approximately 40mm wide (not including the crown) by 11mm thick and is water resistant to 100 meters. This should be sufficient for splashes, rain, baths, showers & swimming (shallow diving) but is not recommended for scuba diving. The crown does not screw down which increases the risk that it could be pulled out accidentally while under water. The stainless steel bezel shows minute numbering and is fixed (cannot be rotated). The gap between the lugs is 20mm 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 SKA098 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
