    none hand winding movements ?

    im interested in buying a seiko skx007k . its says you can hand wind them so does this cause any problems ?are they worth saying away from ? ive never had automatic before . is there any other dive watches in the same price range worth looking at?

    You can't hand-wind the movement in an SKX, but if you give it a twist it'll get right going. It bothers some people that you can't wind it via the crown, but I don't think it's a reason to stay away from the SKX line - they are fantastic watches and a great value.
    Cheers,
    Greg

    Just grip in your hand and gently shake it back and forth for about 30 seconds, set it, put it on it will run until you don't wear it a day or two.

    No need to 'grip' it or 'shake' it either. Sounds like you're making a cocktail.

    The movement has a unique winding system which is very efficient at fully winding the movement while wearing the watch normally in just a few hours. Google the PDF of the 7S26 movement instruction manual which will tell you how to set the movement going. Mine starts the moment I pick it up! I just set the time and I'm good to go. The watch will run for a good day and half to two days if not worn when fully wound.

    Personally the lack of handwinding has never been an issue for me. The failure to hack ... that is another story ;) .

    Having watches you can't wind is a bit of a pain when you wear a fresh watch each day but it is only a bit, and a little bit at that. It's certainly no reason to steer clear of them.
