There are many vintage Seiko popular with collectors, and the legendary 7S26 - the seldom-seen salmon dialed 2004 Seiko 7S26-0430 here, with its original bracelet, box, and papers is one of these.


Is this the ever elusive SARB037, with its unique salmon dial (with its $4k and up price tag)? No, but it's rather incredibly close - and much less expensive.


Seiko's 7S26 automatic movements continue to have a tremendous cult following (in particular, the now discontinued SKX line). And for good reason, the movement is largely bulletproof, and its popularity and ubiquitous nature means affordable maintenance and parts availability for decades and decades to come.


The 7S26 was the logical step in its mechanical movement line, which debuted in 1996 to replace the 7002 in Seiko’s popular dive watch line. It incorporates quickset day and date displays, with automatic bi-directional winding via Seiko’s patented Magic Lever system.


Combine that with a funky dial here, and you have a unique and reliable watch that can handle the rigors of sports activity, while being able to pair well with a tailored suit.


This Seiko comes on its original stainless-steel bracelet, and with leather over/under strap, rugged travel case, and springbar tool - of note, it also comes with Seiko inner/outer boxes, 7S26 instructions, and warranty paperwork.
