1978 Seiko 7009-8129 Automatic Day/Date “Arabic”


When it comes to dial layout, few can top the crisp contrast of a clean and understated Arabic format. Typically associated with military purposes, they are highly legible minimalist timepieces that offer classic style and timeless design. This 7009 from Seiko’s Daini division is a perfect example. Produced in February of ‘78, it features a silver sunburst dial with a glossy lacquered finish on which large black Arabic numerals in a clean modern font have been printed. At the the three o’clock position is a framed day/date window, both of which can be quickset via the crown. The case architecture is classic Seiko with smooth lines, sharp angles, and a contoured curvature that provides great comfort on the wrist. It’s unpolished and completely original aside from a replacement crystal. In keeping with its crisp, casual demeanor, we’ve paired it with a smooth brown leather that’s perfect for all occasions. At just under 37mm, it offers versatility and plenty of eye catching presence.
