Another Seiko 5, but a more modern blue dial version this time. Model reference 7S26-0060 or SKX551.
HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
From the serial number on the case back we can accurately date this watch to being made in May 2000. The movement in this watch was first launched in 1996, and this is an earlier model. The watch also comes with a warranty card, but this is totally blank.
The Seiko 5 watch range was launched in 1963, and has been a staple of the Seiko range ever since. It represents unparalleled value for money – good brand, automatic winding, jeweled movements, day, date, stainless steel case and bracelet, for not much money. There are areas where they have had to save money – the bracelet is folded links rather than solid, and the movements are not finely finished by hand but instead are mass produced, but Seiko have plenty of other watches with higher prices if this is what you are looking for. This watch has the automatic wind only 21 jewel 7S26A movement still being used today, and the day window can display the day in either English or French. The bracelet is a good length and has been cleaned in our ultrasonic bath. The glass is unmarked.
This watch will be supplied with the original presentation box, blank warranty card and our Certificate of Authenticity.
