What year

Can someone tell the approximate or exactly years of a vintage pentax lense by the serial number or there's other way to know?

Look in the review section. It normally tells the years of production for particular lenses, but not by serial number.

If enough pentaxians do enter their lenses in the serial number database, you can see some years of purchase:
