[SOLD] 1980s Vintage Seiko 5 7S26 "Midnight"

Seiko 5 7S26 "Midnight"
Circa 1980s

The color blue, and the romantic night sky - both a major selling point for marques touting their latest wares to the horology loving populace. 

And this piece has them both.

Many boys will remember their first favorite color - blue. There's just something about the hue that brings a fascination to the man. It is cool, yet commanding, and exudes a certain luxury to it.

Swiss watch makers have always equated the color with its higher range selection, and oh do the boys sucker for it. Who wouldn't want to be gifted with the envious looks of a fellow man?

Modern styles and classic steel come together in dance with Midnight. The cool polished azure dial radiates outwards to polished steel hour indices, with large roman XII and VI to add that touch of class. 

For the office or a night out, Midnight certain fits all bills.
