Just got out my stainless 7A38-7140 'beater' to do a quick comparison with another similarly well-worn example that's recently been listed on eBay - and to count up the number of links. Mine's only on my wrist courtesy of a clasp extender. :/

Got my 7A38-705A out this morning, to try another different Seiko bracelet on it. Why you may ask ? :| Just wait and see. ;)

Wearing a stainless 7A38-7000 on this grey overcast Monday morning. Typical English summer's day - it's drizzling. :roll: Luckily, I managed to squeeze in one quick shot without getting any raindrops on the crystal. :)

Why is your barbeque always so clean, Achim ? :P Reminded me, I need to clean up this slightly grubby 7A38-7010 a bit. :roll:

Here's a couple of Q&D (literally dirty) 'as received' shots of my newest incoming stainless 'SIEKO' 7A38-7020 SAA009J. :D I think this one's going to clean up very nicely. :) 


Speaking of 'slightly grubby', as I was ....

That very reasonably priced stainless 7A38-7020 did indeed clean up very nicely. :) But I'd forgotten to post an 'after' photo. :P

Something a bit different this afternoon: an attractive little watch that doesn't see the light of day as often as it should. :/

A stainless 7A38-6080 SAA089J.

Wearing one of my favourite self-built Frankens today. Funnily enough it's a combination of two watches on this page - the watch case is from a stainless 7A38-7020 and the black / grey 709L is from a 7A38-7070 (yesterday's shot), but with white Day / Date wheels. The hands are from a 7A28-7040 (hour / minute are in fact same as a 7A38-7020). The 10mm fitting bracelet with nicely matching rivet detail is a NOS (or at least it was) Seiko p/n Z1020S. Must build another one sometime. :/

Of course today one more time the "new" 7A38-701A. This time a photo with the usual angle.

How are you supposed to follow that ? :/ I guess the only logical way to follow a 7A38-701A is with a 7A38-701B. :P

So here's mine. First time it's been out of the collection box this year. Far from mint, but I'm still happy with my old 'Vulcan'.

Very nice Vulcan. The hands make it look classic and a  little bit  elegant.


Today one of my favourite "diver" 7Axx, the black 7A38-7080.

Wearing my second string 7A38-6060 SAA071J today - photo taken in the shade in an attempt to avoid reflections off the domed crystal. It's actually a nice bright sunny afternoon. :)

Out in the garden with my Seiko 7A38-701B from Jan 1983----Smoke in the air from forest fires makes for interesting filtered light :P

A Seiko 7A38-7100 from Sept. 1984  today.  :P  Original scratched crystal is still too nice to replace.  :roll:

A recent flurry of emails and PM's from a newly-joined forum member (clearly enthusiastic about acquiring his similar model), reminded me I hadn't worn this in a very long time. My ex-Wimstore 'Freebee' Orient J39701-70, fitted with a non-original Seiko p/n G1410S stainless bracelet. Of course, when I came to get it out of the collection box, the battery was flat - and the next one to it. :roll:

Closer examination of the watches in that collection box revealed that it just wasn't the one next to it, but there were half a dozen more besides, that were either stopped or displaying the 'two-second tick' low battery symptoms. :roll: So another battery replacement session was obviously needed, that I put off until today. Just done this one, my NOS two-tone gunmetal champagne-dialed Orient J39601-70. Quick photo grabbed between the showers.

Having gone through that collection box yesterday afternoon, which contains the bulk of my J39 collection, replacing flat batteries, I needed to reset the dates (and times) on most of the others. This one was showing SAT 29 (and still on GMT) - an indication that I hadn't worn it in a long time. :( My Racer J39027-70 BreitBling Panda - fitted with a 19mm Meyhofer 'Lanark' strap.
