I reviewed a couple of Seiko 5 models in my last few posts and some people commented that they prefer not to have the ‘5’ logo on the dial. So, this time round, I will post a 7S36 model that does not have the ‘5’ logo.
This is a fairly recent model that comes under the Superior line with model number starting with “SKZ”. Let’s take a look.
Below is a shot of the partially textured dial. You can clearly see the “Made in Japan” inscription at the bottom of the dial. The hands are identical to those found on the SARB043 and the font used on the “Automatic” word is also identical to that found on the 6R15 models. This watch is probably made in the same factory that produces the 6R15 models and you probably will not find any ‘K’ version around.
Here are a few self explanatory side profile shots. It has polished finishing on the entire case.
Unlike most 7S dress watches that has see-through casebacks, this watch comes with a solid stainless steel caseback. Coupled with the Sapphire crystal and 10 bar water resistance, this is pretty much a bomb proof dress watch.
It is installed with a black leather strap and signed buckle.
Below is the list price of the watch in Singapore currency. It is distributed in Singapore by distributor, Thong Sia Group. (Note: price is shown for reference only. I am not a watch seller)
Diameter: 39.5mm excluding crown
Lug width: 20mm
Water resistance: 10 bar
