SKX Slim Caseback: Brushed Finish
The SKX is a chunky watch alright - if you ever wished you could reduce the overall thickness of the SKX, this slim caseback is perfect for you!
Our SKX Slim Caseback is a whopping 61% thinner (0.8mm vs 1.5mm) and 50% lighter (9g vs 15g) than our standard SKX caseback, and is rated to a water resistance of 5ATM. We have tested it ourselves with a 6ATM water pressure tester with no issues whatsoever. Not appropriate for actual diving - but it'll do great for desk diving, swimming pools, and showers. What, you don't shower with your watch on?!
Compatible with SKX007/009, SKX013, and all the SKX-style cases that we sell on our website.
Fits Seiko NH movements (like the ones that we sell) with a Grey Spacer only.
This product came as a surprise to me... it's one of those things I never thought to even request. Out of sight, out of mind, I suppose. Since this launched at the same time as the MM conversion case, I had to try it out for myself. The fit and finish is as you'd expect from Namoki: fantastic. The rotary brushed finish gives the case back a sunburst effect that is a shame to hide against my wrist, and the contrast of a polished bevel just ices that hidden cake. Though the measurement of "thinness" in comparison to other case backs or the OEM Seiko case back isn't a significant number, it really compounds on the wrist. Usually you can see the profile of a case back when you peek behind the case, but this one practically seats the case flush on the flesh.
Though I haven't tried it yet, I would imagine this would be an amazing case back option for those who to rock NATO and ZULU straps, because those have a tendency to "float" the watch over the wrist.
