Classic watches manufactured by Seiko have a serial number that decodes the year and month they were manufactured, the movement of the watch and the model number. Since Seiko has produced a variety of styles, designs and brands of watches, the model number is a good way of identifying the exact make and model. Whether you need the model number to find a replacement piece for your watch or are looking to obtain an appraisal, the model number is hard to see but easy to find.

  1. 1

    Turn your Seiko watch over so the back plate is facing up. Use a soft cloth to protect the surface of the watch from scratching when putting the face of the watch on a table. Use a light to make any engraving easier to find.

  2. 2

    Look at the back plate and edges with a magnifying glass for a 10-digit serial number. The serial number consists of a series of letters and numbers that are engraved on the back cover.

  3. 3

    Decode the serial number to find the model number. The last four digits will give you the model number you are searching for.
