IS THE SEIKO MINI-TURTLE THE NEW SKX007?

Older article but a good read

Seiko’s SKX007, the 42.5-millimeter vintage-inspired diver released in 1996, has been a huge hit globally—so huge that it has become the benchmark of affordable SCUBA watches for divers, journalists, and watch-heads alike. With an exceptional finish, reasonable size, classic style, high-performance specs, and an impossibly low price (typically below $200), it’s always been hard to beat the SKX007.

However, to the best of our knowledge, Seiko has discontinued the SKX007. Typical of the Japanese brand, they did so sometime recently without any announcement, and because new units are still available it was easy to miss the demise of this now-classic diver.
