At least I didn't inadvertently 'turn the page' on you, this time, Paul. :P

This afternoon I've been wearing this 'beater' Orient J39701-70 (dark blue dial, fitted with a 20mm 'Feiko' after-market bracelet):

With all the Yema N8's, Orient J39's, other brands and even Frankens posted in this thread recently, a 'newbie' might get the wrong impression - that none of us 'old hands' ever wears a Seiko 7A38. :/ Not so. Here's one of my regular everyday beaters to prove it.

7A38-706A (on TSS Aerosport Mk2 strap):




Pinch, punch, 1st of the month, and all that. :P

I haven't worn this one in ages. It's not in the best condition, by any stretch of the imagination, but I'm content just to have an example in my collection. In it's day, the most expensive 7Axx that Seiko ever offered - with a Japanese retail price tag of 100,000 Yen in 1985.

The all-Titanium (including the case-back) 7A38-7030 SJS018.

Cheers, Don. ;) Here's the day / date equivalent of yours - the not so common, but equally blingy 7A38-7060 SAA018J.




PS - In case you hadn't guessed, I'm trying to go a whole month without posting a single wrist shot of any non-Seiko 7A38.

Getting withdrawal symptoms already. :/

I don't normally do requests Phil. :P ....

But I presume by 'Come on Paul put another shot of her big brother up', you were referring to my 7A38-701B 'Vulcan' SAA005J ? ;)

Yep, that would be the one. I don't know what it is about yellow faced watches but I love em, the contrast between the yellow and the black maybe. I am thinking that I must have one of these but I am sure I will have to wait a long time before one comes up.

Sorry for not posting for a long time.

Today it´s my "holy grail", the 7A38-701A (with wrong day/date-setting ...).

In the meantime it got a new, correct glass and is back with the original, grey bezel inlay. I like the overall look of the watch much better this way. :)
