For sale we have an interesting neo-vintage, April 1996 Seiko Quartz Chronograph with alarm. This is a function packed watch, with a charming mix of neat design touches and vintage inspired design. It is a clean watch, with versatility, being equally suited to wear as a sports watch or a dress piece.


It has a light silver dial with a subtle satin shine. Around the outside of the dial is the white Tachymetre insert. The dial has simple three-dimensional applied silver baton markers, with lume blocks to the base. It has inset sub-dials for the 30-minute counter, constant second and alarm. These have a sunburst finish which catches the light nicely. The date window is offset at 3 O’clock with date window. This dial design is reminiscent of the 1970s chronographs from Seiko and Citizen. The hands also have a vintage feel being black painted.

The Stainless case measures 39mm which gives it a good wrist presence, whilst the depth is under 10mm, making this a neat wear on the wrist. This is what gives it the neo-vintage feel, as well as its styling. It has brushed finishing to the top, with a polished notched bezel framing the dial. To the left is the chronograph pusher, hour and minutes crown at 3 and the alarm crown at 4 O’clock. It has a signed snap on case back with brushed finish. The watch comes on its original Stainless-Steel bracelet, with signed clasp. It will fit any wrist size, with spare links.

Inside is the workhorse cal 7T32, which is an excellently engineered quartz movement. It was considered a ‘throw away when not working’ movement, being made of 90% plastic. However, it is fully serviceable and is a very reliable timekeeper and boasts a host of functions for this price point.


A fun and affordable Seiko which has all the functions you need and gorgeous design touches.
