This titanium 7A38-7120 was listed earlier this evening by a Moldavian eBay seller with an optimistic Buy-it-Now price of $350 (and currently no 'make offer' option).

No great surprise, the Moldavian eBay seller's 7A38-7120 remains unsold and appears to being automatically re-listed every 30 days (retaining the same item number), without any reduction in price. :roll:


Yesterday lunchtime, another 7A38-7120 was listed by a German eBay seller, with a more sensible Buy-it-Now price of 160 Euros (and the option to make an offer).

The above titanium 7A38-7120, listed by the German seller sold this morning, not for the 160 Euros Buy-it-Now price (which I thought was quite reasonable), but ....


http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/152955999737



As revealed by WatchCount.com's Look-up tool, for a best offer of 140 Euros:




The eBay Purchase History shows the seller earlier declined a few lower offers:

This titanium 7A38-7120 was listed this morning by a Spanish eBay seller. Once again, a highly over-optimistic 'pie-in-the-sky' Buy-it-Now price of 320 Euros - with the option to make an offer, but with an equally ludicrous shipping cost of 65 Euros ! :o It appears to be in decent average used condition, with the usual scuffs to the lacquered bezel and some loss of gold plating from the bracelet link ornaments. The seller has included a 9th photo of a Seiko user manual (for the 7Txx series), which clearly doesn't belong to this watch. :roll:

This titanium 7A38-7120 was listed about an hour ago by a UK eBay seller, with an opening bid price of £40, or the option to Buy-it-Now for £140. It's a pity that the seller's primary image - the head on photo is so badly out of focus. :roll:


http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/292569047810


This is a very collectible and original Seiko 7A38 7120.

It is one of Seiko's first quartz chronographs.

It is presented in full working order with all pushers fully functioning.

The case is 37mm in diameter (42mm across the pushers) and 11mm deep

It has been used and shows signs of wear and scratches.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions that you may have.

Possibly at my suggestion, the UK eBay seller did subsequently add three better focussed photos to his listing:



But they seem to have done little to help his sale, possibly because he didn't bother to re-order them, leaving the same blurry photo as the primary image. :roll: The 7-day auction ended yesterday evening, selling for £87 after 12 bids.

Yesterday evening, I missed posting the result of the above 10-day auction listing for a titanium 7A38-7120 on eBay Germany. It sold for a rather disappointing 64.30 Euros after only 5 bids. I thought it deserved better than that. :(

This titanium 7A38-7120, in average worn condition, was listed earlier this week, by an Italian eBay seller, as a 7-day auction, with an opening bid price of 0.01 Euros (1 cent). Bidding is currently @ 43.50 Euros, with 3½ days of the auction left to run. Note that the sweep second hand fitted is not original. Personally, I also thought it a little strange that the seller is showing the spare adjustment links separately, when he could very easily have incorporated them into the bracelet. :/

Seems that a week after I made that second post, the Moldavian eBay seller did actually start to reduce his Buy-it-Now price. According to the item revision history, it appears he reduced it a total of 9 times over the last 6 months; presumably in $10 increments, from $350 to $260.


But it wasn't until 3 days ago (on 7th August) that he finally got round to adding a 'Make Offer' option. The 7A38-7120 eventually sold yesterday evening. :roll:

WatchCount.com's Look-up tool reveals it finally sold for an offer of $240:

Whist not exactly a watch, I suppose I should mention this in the model specific thread - in case anyone else is interested. This single page Seiko advert for a 7A38-7120 SAA044J, clipped from a 1987 German magazine came up in one of my eBay saved favourite search notifications earlier in the week. Whereas I do sometimes collect these myself, the German eBay seller's asking price of 6.95 Euros plus 4.95 Euros postage is a little rich for my tastes.

Quick footnote: The German eBay seller subsequently reduced the Buy-it-Now price twice - to a more reasonable 2.99 Euros. The advert sold earlier this evening. :)

Just scrolling through my eBay watching pages, I noticed the German eBay seller of that titanium 7A38-7120 had ended the listing early, yesterday evening, without any bids having been placed - as 'item no longer available'.


http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/142940568767



Presumably, as it appeared to be a decent example and was sensibly priced, sold off eBay for an undisclosed offer, via the 'back door'. :/

Hardly worthy of a mention really, this titanium 7A38-7120 'head only' was listed by a UK eBay seller, on Monday evening, as spares or repair, in a job lot with another Seiko quartz and kinetic, as a 5-day auction, with an opening bid price of £75. It's missing its crown and stem and one pusher is obviously jammed well in. Somebody seems to think it's worth it, because it already has a bid. :/

This nice almost mint example of the titanium 7A38-7120 was listed earlier this afternoon by Italian eBay seller simone00simone, as a 7-day auction, with an opening bid price of 1 Euro.

Wonderful Seiko 7A38-7120 titanium vintage Quartz chronograph, working watch in very good condition, like new.

The watch has been checked and a new battery has been inserted, all the chronographs work and reset perfectly, change date perfect.

The 7-day Italian eBay auction for the above titanium 7A38-7120 ended a couple of minutes ago, selling for 241 Euros after 34 bids. In typical customary Italian fashion, the auction appears to have been shilled up to 230 Euros by bidder a***i (22), who placed a total of 5 bids and has 100% bidding activity with this seller.
