Ready to hit the 'buy' button on a Seiko divers watch. I have circa £150 to spend so was thinking of either the SKX007 or the SKA371 from Creationwatches. I'm looking for an everyday watch that can withstand MTBing / canoeing / horsing about but still looks reasonably good but not so good that I start greeting when it breaks. I have a 'good' Omega for posh days!
I believe the SKX007 is a fairly low end automatic movement and the SKA371 has the 'slightly better' Kentic movement? Several google searches suggest:
The 007 seems to be robust & reliable but can be out by up to + or - 15 sec per day.
Some 371 reviews state that the kinetic capacitor isn't the most reliable (needs replaced after 5ish years) but keeps better time.
Anyone got any experience of how resilient these are, specifically when it come to MTBing in terms of time keeping? My Omega goes 'nuts' if I wear whilst MTBing.
