    Can't figure out what model Seiko this is. Identification Help!

    Saw this seiko on a social media site. Poster said it was from 1973 it seems and thats all I can really gather.

    Here's the pic:

    It showed up as I was searching for a 7009-821A but I believe that movement only has 17 jewels and this one shows 21 on the dial.

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Caliber 7S26 has 21 jewels
    Gray dial
    Bar indices
    4 o'clock crown (roughly, certainly not 3H)
    Day and date
    Stick hands

    The 7S26 was introduced in the 90s and I've never seen a 7S26 that had that case. Maybe though. You know that case?

    SEIKO 5 Finder - Search Results for Jewels = 21, Crown Position = 04:00, Day Window = Yes, Dial Color = Gray, Hour Markings = Bars, Sorted by Popularity

    Hmm none of those have the lug shape that the watch in the pic has. I'm still not sure if that is a 7S26 as the dates still don't add up.

    It's the SKXQ43 or the 7s26-8210. You were right! It is a 7s26.. It seems to be very hard to find one to purchase though.. I haven't even found many sold on ebay.

    Thanks for your help!
