This is something more modern, but still really attractive. The Vintage Seiko 7T92-0HE0 Quartz Chronograph that you see here is a real stunner: the deep blue 3D-dials with elevated boundaries for the 1/20 second and hour chronograph counters are something that we cannot stop watching.

The applied hour markers in stainless steel contrast beautifully with the lighter blue dial background, playing with the light like the minute and hour main hands. The Lume is amazingly strong (Seiko is famous for their LumiBrite) and will last a lot once expose to natural sun light.

The bracelet is stainless steel, it has seen some use, of course, but it is still intact, and what’s more important, it will fit larger wrists since all end links are present. It is a bit stretched, but still feels comfortable.

The incredibly reliable 7T92 quartz movement is capable of timing up to 12 hours in 1/20 second increments, and of course it also has a split time measurement function. All works as it should, keeping excellent time (it is a Seiko quartz movement, after all!).

This is a hefty wristwatch, all in stainless steel, so do expect it to be on the heavy side, but once one, you will get used to it almost immediately, so well it wears. The 42mm (without crown) case is large, yes, but the bracelet wraps around your wrist so well, you won’t even notice it.

The watch has been serviced, as usual, replacing all gaskets and using original Seiko grease on the case back, pushers and stem gaskets to avoid water ingress, but as usual, we do not recommend to go diving with this watch before doing a proper water resistance test by a professional.

The pushers are very smooth now and have a solid feel to them, and the glass was replaced with a new Stern Kreuz compatible mineral glass. The numerals on the tachymeter bezel were repainted too.

Things we like about this watch:

The 3D blue dial is amazing to watch, and will the yellow chronograph seconds hand contrasts beautifully with it, allowing timing of events even with dim lighting. Oh, it has a LumiBright arrow pointed end, so it will be visible even in total darkness… The watch is heavy, but amazingly comfortable, wraps around the wrist in a very secure way. The movement is capable of timing events up to 12 hours. What else are you looking for?

Things we don’t like about this watch:

Even if still sturdy and extremely safe, the bracelet is a bit stretched, especially on the links to the case. Also, it is scratched all around, sign it was very well used. The stainless steel bracelet is not polished nor buffed: the decision to polish it is up to you. Minor scratches and dents are thus present, but tell its story. You may like this or not, your decision.

The Vintage Seiko 7T92-0HE0 Quartz Chronograph offered here is an extremely nice watch, with proper weight, 12 hours chronograph function and incredibly beautiful 3D blue dial. Wear it everyday with confidence, it will never let you down!
