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, 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. :)
