Thanks for viewing my listing! I have been a net collector of vintage watches over the years and now I've reached to point where I would like others to enjoy my watches/accessories or finish off projects I don't have time for. Description: Glossy Black SKX013-Sized Rolex Explorer Style Seiko SBBW055 5M43-0C50 Diver Scuba 200m Stainless Steel AGS/Kinetic Diver with Original Bracelet. Condition: Pre-owned; Good to Very Good Condition.Excuding crown; 45mm lug-lug; 13mm thick; 19mm lug width. Accessories: Original 00W7-AB-C 19mm Stainless Oyster Bracelet (+1 extra link); No box/paper/tags. It dates to August 1997 based on the caseback serial. The SBBW055 belongs to an early set of Cal. 5M43 Kinetic Diver Scuba watches with Seiko's with the next generation 5M43 movement.
It was later followed by the popular set of watches like the Titanium Grey Ghost Series. Original mineral crystal had a few tiny central scratches, no cracks. Of note, this watch is compatible with the aftermarket sapphire crystal of the famous Seiko SKX013 automatic series.Dial is a classic glossy black and in excellent shape; lume is still medium-strong despite age; some degenetation on the lume pip. The stainless steel case, screwdown caseback and bezel are in very good shape with a few light scratches. Screw down crown secure without issues and quickset day/day works well. Movement is clean with a new capacitor installed last year by my watchamker; it is able to charge up to full capacity with up to a 6 month power reserve. The watch keeps good time and all functions work; routine service, though, recommended for all vintages. You get the original 00W7-AB-C 19mm stainless oyster bracelet with diver extension; it easity fits my 7.5 inch wrist with all 3 extra microadjustments; there is 1 extra link.
Watch is rated to 200m but has not been pressure tested. This SBBW055 is not easy to find and you get a vintage Rolex Explorer vibe at a fraction of the price - don't miss out on this less common SKX013 sized mod-ready AGS/Kinetic!
