Then again perhaps the other digits where accidentally stamped off centre so Seiko thought how can we make this look better....ahhhh yes, lets put a wonky digit in the gap. But they should have used the same digit as the first 7 digit. Are you all still with me on this.
I have a couple of other models with 7 digits from the 60's as well. We know the 1st 2 digits should be the year and month, the remaining is the number in the production line. Maybe they made more than 10,000 of those models those years? They would need to add a digit if more than 10,000 were made to avoid a repeat in the serial number.
With the end of the production for the SKX007 and its variants, I've been wondering when did the last 7S26-0020/0028/0029 00 come out? I now have an August 2019 7S26-0028 SKX009.
I am thinking this might be the last run. Anyone got anything later?
I posted this on another forum but thought I should ask here as well.
Last month in June we had a birth in the family so what a better way to mark the occasion than to find a birth year birth month Seiko for the little one, i.e. serial beginning with "06" to denote 2020 June.
To my surprise...
