King Seiko Vanac 5626-7160 from 1972
For sale is a Seiko 5626-7160.
Marketed as a summer watch for collectors, the Vanac series features vibrant dials, faceted crystal and bold case designs.
Most collectors avoid the Vanac series due to its bold design but references like this 5626-7160 definitely strike the right balance.
The watch features a gradient green sunburst dial accompanied by a pair of bold syringe hands with ridges as details. The lack of gold accent on the dial certainly helps the watch appeal to more.
While multi-angular case is characteristics of a Vanac, the 5626-7160 uses a round integrated bracelet case that further contributes to the popularity of this reference.
The watch is then topped off with a 9 cut crystal that further accentuate the gradient green dial by altering the way light passes through it.
The watch is in immaculate condition with no signs of aging seen on the dial and hands. The original watch crystal is almost perfect except for a light hairline scratches seen at 12. It is worth pointing out that it is rare to have multifaceted crystal in such an incredible condition due to its non classic design and height.
The watch comes on its original Vanac signed bracelet.
