Custom Seiko SKX011-X1 Special Island Watch Edition Divers Watch #SKX011-X1
This Seiko SKX011-X1 watch has been specially custom modified by Island Watch as a limited quantity, custom version of the model SKX011. It been fitted with a Strapcode Super-O "Boyer" Bracelet as a custom upgrade to the OEM Seiko bracelet. It also has been upgraded with a double-dome scratch-resistant AR (anti-reflective) sapphire crystal, a coin-edge stainless steel bezel with a ceramic blue insert with luminous markings, and blue Mercedes style hands. The SKX011-X1 special edition retains Seiko's well proven 7S26 automatic (self-winding) movement with a day and date display.
The Strapcode Super-O "Boyer" bracelet has several advantages over the stock Seiko OEM bracelet. It is all solid links including the end links at the lugs. The links are screwed-in instead of push pins and they are slightly thicker at 3.4mm. The deployant clasp is machined milled from solid 316L stainless steel vs. the Seiko OEM bracelet which is simply stamped steel. The Strapcode deployant clasp also has six fine adjustments (one more than the Seiko OEM bracelet). The Strapcode Super-O "Boyer" tapers from 22mm at the lugs to 18mm at the clasp. Overall length is 175mm. Net weight is 93 grams. The bracelet is secured to the SKX011 using a pair of FAT spring bars to eliminate rattle while wearing.
The Double-Dome Sapphire Crystal used in place of the Seiko OEM Hardlex is 4.6mm thick and has been professionally installed. The crystal has a blue hue anti-reflective coating.
* Water Resistance - the Seiko SKX011 is an ISO 6425 diver rated to 200M water resistance. Changing the crystal can affect the water resistance of the watch. After our modification, the SKX011-X1 watches have been tested to 100 meters of water resistance. Island Watch guarantees water resistance during regular recreational use, but is not recommended for scuba diving.
