Seiko released two vintage style models using the 7S26C last year (links at the end of this post). This year, they released a few more variants based on the two models. These variants come with different dial designs and straps. There are also some minor differences which I shall highlight in this post.
– Arabic numerals
– minute chapter ring appears flat, making it look like a layered dial
– solid hands compared to skeleton ones one the previous model
– Drilled lugs (not found on previous model)
– crystal is slightly curved
Notice that the minute chapter ring on the previous model is not flat.
The rest are pretty much the same except the strap. Here are the pictures.
Diameter: 44mm excluding crown
Lug width: 24mm
Lug to lug: 50mm
Water resistance: 5 Bar
Original models released last year:

This model looks great. I like the design and color.
Yes, nice case and dial design.
this new version does it include lumi paint on its hands?
Sorry, can’t check for you as I don’t have the watch with me now.
Was trying this out at the store a few weeks back. It looked good on the shelf, but it didnt’ quite sit right on my wrist. i think it may have been due to the stiff leather seiko strap. I’m trying to visualize it with a different strap- it may find its way into my drawer if I could only think of a color/material combo that works. Nylon? Stressed thick leather perhaps? hmmmm….
I think the leather is quite stiff. Need time for it to break in or change to a softer one.
Is the date in Japanese and English?
Hi, I would like to buy this Vintage Style Seiko – SNKN37K. Do you know where to get it?
I see you are located in South America. Try looking for it online. eBay or something.
