Everyday Carry: A Soldier’s Seiko



It is time once again for us to take a look at what our friends over at Everyday Carry have on their pages, and today is a pocket dump from one of our hard-serving Army members.  Why was this one picked?

For one simple reason – that Seiko.  Sure, it’s the humble Seiko SKX007, but that sub-$200 watch has probably been put through more than any watch that you or I own, and held up admirably it seems.  I may rattle on about toughness and durability in the watches I review, but putting it on the wrist of active duty military seems about as tough a testament to durability as you will find.

You can check out all the details of the pocket dump right here.  And, as always, if you submit your own pocket dump to the site, let us know so we can try to feature some of our own WWR readers.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.

  1. Not for nothing, but that’s not a Seiko SKX007. It’s some iteration of a 7002 series, which was discontinued in 1996. And they are indeed just as tough. Granted, the SKX007 and 173 are the closest modern equivalents, with the 173 having similar hour markers to the pictured 7002..
