I think I know what the answer to this question will be - a resounding silence. :( But there's no harm in asking is there ? :P

Two years ago I started off this website / forum, with the best of intentions - to write a dedicated topic on every Seiko 7A38 variant.

Ahem. Let's just say I've allowed myself to get side-tracked a few times. :D

There is obviously a considerable (if not almost equal) amount of interest in the 7A28.

If you click on the database tab, you'll see that 2 years ago, there were two other people considering creating Seiko 7Axx websites, so I decided to stick to what I knew - 7A38's.  Neither of those sites have progressed any further. So perhaps it's up to us to do something.

What first got me thinking about this (only yesterday, in fact) was ....

If you look at the Home page, 2 years ago, almost to the day, I wrote:

Hello, and Welcome to what I hope will become THE #1 Resource for Seiko 7A38s (including associated 7Axx 15J calibers .... )

Yesterday we were joined by a new member from Japan - moto_lion. On his profile he wrote:


Thanks for welcome message in my mother language.

I'm sure this site must be the #1 resource for 7A38.

I really like it. :)

I knew we were actually, but it's nice to hear someone else say it. 8)

So if no-one else (on any other website) is prepared to take up the cudgels - why not 7A28's as well. :|

What made me give the idea further consideration was this morning I added a new post to Adrian (Licu)'s thread about the 7A28-7110.

Adrian had originally started his new topic in the eBay section, but then I decided to move it to the 7Axx General Discussion section.

This morning I've further tweaked it and given it a 'proper' fully descriptive title (as I do with the 7A38-xxxx Model Specific topics).

So it now looks like this: 7A28-7110 SSAY078 Black Chrome Speedmaster (JDM Only) - (Topic now re-named)

There are a number of other pre-existing threads, both in this forum section and in the eBay section, which could be similarly re-named to form the basis of such 7A28-xxxx Model Specific topics and then moved into a new 7A28 forum sub-section to get the ball rolling ....

For example: (short thread on the 7A28-701A). (one full page of info on the 7A28-7A00). (7A28-7120 RAF Gen 1). (7A28-7000).

.... to name just a few.

With the recent influx of new members, many of whom have joined expressing an interest in 7A28's - I'll ask the question once again ....

Any volunteers, please ? :|
