The Japanese Domestic Market (JDM)  SPEEDMASTER 7a28-7110 arrived an hour ago :D   It is from May 1983.  A tidy little watch with everything working and not much wear to the plating. Some faint, light scratches on crystal--it stays :P

Had to grab this stainless 7A38-7270 off eBay before Don got it! :D

I've been waiting for a black dial to put together a "civilian 7A38 RAF." :lol:

Well here's mine. Again not the best of photos. I leaned out the back door to get some better light on the subject and it got rained on.

My newest incoming JDM 7A38-7110 - with special thanks to Japanese forum member Daisuke for helping me to procure it.

10 to 15 seconds! Had to make sure the price had dropped from $199. Came back to the then current listing and bada bing bada bomb hit that "Buy it Now" button! Couldn't believe nobody picked it up.

And here it is....Seiko 7A38-7270. Dec. 1988 build date. All original bracelet and crystal, which is very scratched. Nice crisp button action. Yep...looks like a keeper.

Just keep it on the original B1615S bracelet, Paul. ;) After you've cleaned out the previous owner's black wrist cheese, that is. :P

Feeling quite excited about receiving what looks like a very nicely looked-after two-tone 7A38-7020 on the proper steel/GP bracelet with (praise be!) enough links to accommodate my giant novelty wrists... I was surprised to get it for the starting bid price as well. These didn't used to be to my taste, but have really started to appeal lately - I think it's the angular case standing out from other rounder ones. Not sure the seller is a member on this forum, but if you are, it's going to a good home :D
