What we have here to talk about today would be Thailand’s Exclusive Limited Edition known as the Seiko SKXA65 model watch.
The number of units available for this particular model is 2,999 pieces. From first glance, it looks some what like the Pepsi SKX009, but it has its differences as well. Instead of the 70/30 Pepsi dial, the SKXA65 has a 50/50 Pepsi dial. If you look closely at the hands, it is actually the same ones you see on the Sumo series watches. Another thing to look out for is the cyclops on the glass which helps the visual aspect when looking at the day&date. Last but not least, although we simply refer the watch as an modded version for the Pepsi SKX009, but in fact the unique blue, red, and white color combination is actually colors of Thailand’s country flag.
You would not see this unique blue color on another Seiko watch in the market at the moment. here’s not much to say about the factory Seiko-J Louis bracelet it comes with, but as a limited edition promotion, Seiko has decided to throw in the silicon rubber strap as well. Guess two mediocre bracelet are better than one mediocre bracelet.

Overall, there’s really nothing to complain about Seiko’s SKX series watches. Other than the fact the SKXA65 model costs nearly the same as a SRP Turtle, or the fact that there’s the SKX009 that has already been in the market as one of the dominant model watches in its catecory, is there a market for the SKXA65? Perhaps there is since it is limited to 2999 pieces only and for some watch lovers out there, an affordable limited watch may be a good pick up for them and treasure it as a rare piece to their collection.
