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.

  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..
