Iklan Seiko Bellmatic tahun 1970

Ini adalah iklan Seiko Bellmatic yang ditayangkan di majalah Life tepat di balik sampul depan edisi September 1970. 

Hal lain yang menarik, di sampul depan itu terdapat daftar harga majalah untuk beberapa negara. Di Jepang dijual dengan harga 180 Yen atau setara dengan 180 Rupiah (saat itu).

Jadi di semua katalog Seiko tahun 1970 harganya bisa disimpulkan sama 1:1 antara Yen & Rupiah (sekali lagi, saat itu).

Seiko 5 7S26-6040 - SKX237 (SOLD)

One of interesting things about Seiko is, the more you've learned you'll realize that there are lot more you should learned.

Stock photos from Seiko's website

This SKX237 (green) is a part of series,  SKX233 (beige dial), SKX235 (blue), SKXE07 (fluorescent/lume dial) and maybe one more with black dial, I don't know. Movement-case code is 7s26-6040.

Left: SNK427 Center: SKX237 Right: SKX429

Looks the same with 7s26-3060 (SKX425, SKX427, SKX429, SKX431) or 7s26-00d0 (SNK425, SNK427, SNK429, SNK431) but the diameter is slightly smaller, 34.2mm. Same lug width, 18mm and AFAIK only came with nylon/canvas strap with aluminum buckle, and you'll love this, drilled-lug on all side!

Well there is not much reference you can find on internet, maybe the series made for 'other planet' market :)

Seiko SKX427 vs SNK427 - Side by Side

Both are still affordable in price now but we will need extra energy to catch either one, moreover all of them.

They looks the same, hard to recognize each of them from the face.

The SKX427 or 7S26-3060 came with full metal caseback while SNK427 or 7S26-00D0 with crystal+metal (see-through).

From the side it's clearly the SKX is thinner than SNK and the case shape is slightly different.

Both SKX and SNK runs with 7S26A caliber and came with 2 optional bands, bracelet and canvas.
