This well worn stainless 7A38-6090 fitted with a notched rubber dive strap was listed late last night by a US eBay seller. It comes supplied with the original Seiko p/n S1002S bracelet, but one that is woefully short of adjustment links to be of any practical use. The opening bid price is $78, with an option to Buy-it-Now for $208. As the seller is a member of this forum, I'll refrain from further comment.

The above US eBay auction for a well-worn stainless 7A38-6090 fitted with a rubber 'Dive' strap ended about 15 minutes ago, selling for $135.50 after 6 bids.

This two-tone 7A38-6090 was listed earlier today by a German eBay seller - I'm not sure where he gets the T235 from. It looks to be in pretty decent cosmetic condition, with little evidence of the usual wear to the gold plating visible in his (only) two photos, but the bracelet is suffering from a twisted first joining link on one side. That said, an opening bid price of 150 Euros is somewhat optimistic.

Just tying up a couple of 'loose ends' from last year. ;)

I must admit, I'd lost track of the numerous re-listings by the German eBay seller and that two-tone 7A38-6090 had dropped off my watching page. :roll: A quick search on ended listings on eBay Germany revealed it had last been re-listed twice in December last year, with the opening bid price reduced to 130 Euros:


The most recent re-listing ended on 16th December - still with no bids placed.


However, according to his post on UhrForum.de, the next day (17th December), which included the seller's primary image, it appears to have been purchased by German collector Carlo (Ketap) - presumably off eBay. Carlo subsequently posted a photo of it in a group shot in another thread a few days later.



Looks like that twisted bracelet link straightened out quite nicely. :)

This gunmetal two-tone 7A38-6090, in fairly decent cosmetic condition, was listed yesterday by a German eBay seller with what is possibly a slightly over-optimistic Buy-it-Now price of 239 Euros, (or the option to make an offer).

Another gunmetal two-tone 7A38-6090 was listed on eBay this evening by a seller from the Dominican Republic - chronodiver_watch, as a 5-day auction with an opening bis price of $95. Compared to some of the rougher (and IIRC distinctly Franken) 7Axx's this seller has listed in the past, this appears to be quite a decent unmolested example. That said, counting up the visible number of removeable adjustment links in the bracelet, I suspect it may be a bit on the short side. The seller doesn't give a wrist size in the description, as such, but instead states:

'bracelet measures 150 mm from end link to end link', so it might be a good idea to ask the question.

There are more photos embedded in the seller's description. Quickly scanning through them, some are duplicates of the eBay hosted images. In the interests of page loading times, I'm not going to bother posting them here.
