    The jubilee-style bracelet (on mine) is solid links. I recommend getting the black, if it will be your only one, so that it can go with anything you wear. You'll likely grow out of the pepsi one (like I did mine).

    The point that made me choose the Pepsi is that the red 20 minutes zone "leads" to the crown.



    I really like the crown being at 4h, and I think this combination (20min bezel + 4h crown) gives the watch its unique look

    What is the difference between the SKX007K and the SKX007J?

    Read this article found in our forum archive:

    Collector's Guide To All the seiko 7S26-0020/9 Diver Variants (SKX007 & it's siblings)...

    a quick search of the forum itself yielded the rest of your answer:

    Differences Between SKX007K and SKX007J Explained...

    As for the price difference, it is simply that the JDM version is produced only for the Japanese market and therefore not as widely available. some people erroneously pay a premium for it thinking it is better quality. The reality is that any premium associated with it is only there because it is less common (but by no means rare or uncommon) than it's international counterpart.

    Isn't it amazing what is stored in the forum?

    Just ordered and paid for a SKX007, will arrive in little more than a week (I hope ). Always fancied one but bought the Citizen NY2300 since it was cheaper but in the end I wanted the 007 so the Citizen had to go...

    Looking forward to get this iconic model, hope I will like it as much as the monster which is one of the best watches I have handle

    I guess adding an SKXA53 chapter ring would be taking it a bit far?
