Seiko Design of the '70s
In the '70s, Seiko had put a lot of focus in developing the emerging market of quartz watches. However, they still put a lot of effort in pushing their lines on automatic watches forward. Instead of working on new movements, they did a lot on the case and dial design.
This 7005 carries one of the many typical designs they brought out in the 70's. Based on a typical 7000 case, they have a cut of the metal near the lugs, to give it a staggered look. The dial on the other hand, still carried forward a lot of the design ingredients from the '60s, such as the big cross on the dial, and the square applied markers. These design were slowly replaced by the longer line-shape markers in the '70s.
It is fun to see and study how the designs (not limited to Seiko) evolved, from decade to decade.
