C40 Speedhawk variants

Post by Proodscot » Thu Jan 10, 2019 11:51 pm

Hi. Could someone enlighten me on the variants of C40 Speedhawk that were made. I've seen SKS, SKK and IPK referenced. I'm pretty sure the IPK is the black (DLC?) version and I guess the SKS SKK must be the steel versions. Am I right? And what's the difference between the SKS and the SKK?

Thanks

I'm no expert, but if product codes are uniform then SKS would be Steel Case, Black Dial, Steel Bracelet and SKK would be Steel case, Black Dial, Black Strap (I think!).

I’d agree with that. There were two versions as Proodscot says, which would have had different straps. My shown below.

You are correct. When new, the C40 SK was also sold with a black alligator strap (SKKR) as was the IPK variant (IPK2).

Thanks. The stainless steel version looks very different on leather. Do you have pictures of the IPK on leather or something other than the black bracelet?

Sorry, no. Ive always had the PVD version on the bracelet you see. Someone else will hopefully be able to help.
