Most of us get diver watches for the looks and we don’t really go diving with it. Instead we go desk diving which is the term used to refer to wear and tear from a watch worn while sitting at an office desk. So naturally if you do go on a beach trip, what other better watch to take with you than the custom modded Seiko SKX173 which is in my collection. Right after I got my watch, I went on a trip to Nexus Resort Karambunai which is located East of Malaysia in the state of Sabah. It’s a beautiful private resort which I do recommend to anyone who love the sunny beaches filled with perfect white sand. There’s also surfing if the season is right. Check out some shots of the resort.
I have no qualms at all dipping my sturdy Seiko SKX173 into the sea with the 200 metres water resistance and screw-down crown. It’s built to last more than that. I’ve paired it together with a 22mm Strapcode NATO black strap. It’s a soft strap that feels very comfortable on the wrist. Here’s a wrist shot of the watch on my tiny 6.1 inch wrist. Again if you have not read about my mod you can see it here. If you’re interested in a similar mod, you can get the original SKX173 from Amazon. Now enjoy some wrist candy.
