Hoping to fill the gap once occupied by the legendary SKX007, Seiko launched a new Seiko 5 Sports line last year, which fans of the original certified diver now call the “5KX.” Despite the move, the Japanese watchmaker is now seemingly trying to distance the series from its diving heritage, which has been shifted over to its more premium Prospex line, releasing a range of new models that no longer carry a dive bezel.

Instead, the upcoming releases for the Seiko 5 Sports collection will carry smooth stainless steel bezels for a cleaner look while maintaining a sporty aesthetic via its off-set crown at 4 o’clock and the playful dial designs inspired by the original SKX007. The brand has also reworked the sizing, moving down from a more dive-centric 42.5mm to a wrist-friendlier 40mm. Power comes from its automatic caliber 4R36 movement, boasting 24 jewels and a 41-hour power reserve while operating at 3Hz. It supports manual wind, fully hackable seconds, and a day-date complication at 3 o’clock.

For those interesting, the steel bezel models for 2020 Seiko 5 Sports line will release some time in August with 11 different references. Prices range from $275 USD to $325 USD.

Elsewhere in watches, Eastlogue has teamed up with G-SHOCK for a camo-patterned DW-6900.
