This well-worn looking 7A38-7070 was listed yesterday afternoon by an Italian eBay seller, as a 10-day auction with an opening bid price of 1 Euro. Translating the seller's description, it would appear that he doesn't know how to reset the chronograph minute sub-dial to Zero. He's suggesting taking it to a watchmaker to have the hand re-positioned. :roll:

Asta da un euro (1€)

Orologio vintage Seiko

Modello 7A38-7070

Orologio molto raro della serie 7A, con ghiera sub così come visibile in foto

L'orologio ha movimento al quarzo con funzione cronografica e stop giro

Orario e data analogici

l'orologio funziona bene, segnalo che ha la lancetta dei minuti cronografici da riposizionare, l'impulso a muoversi arriva ma si è leggermente sollevata, basta toglierla e rimetterla al suo posto.

Come potete vedere l'orologio è coevo, ha le lancette originali e anche il suo bracciale, dal punto di vista estetico potete valutare bene le foto.

Per chi vincerà l'asta: Posso portare l'orologio a far sistemare la lancetta dei minuti dall'orologiaio ad un prezzo da concordare, basterà metterci in contatto con whattsapp e sarò felice di andare dall'orologiaio, comunicare il costo dell'intervento e farlo attuare, con tutta probabilità il costo sarà zero ma nel mio essere appassionato, collezionista e soprattutto persona onesta voglio parlare chiaramente.

Spedizione con raccomandata o corriere

Per altre domande sono a disposizione

Grazie

This 7A38-7070, fitted with leather strap in place of the original Seiko p/n B1241S bracelet, was listed yesterday evening, by a UK eBay seller, as a 7-day auction, with an opening bid price of £0.99. I'm inclined to disagree with his opinion of the watch being in 'NEAR MINT CONDITION'. Apart from the lack of original bracelet, it's been fitted with non-original sub-dial hands, with black painted bosses. Still, if potential buyers aren't worried about the lack of bracelet, I expect they'll care less about the wrong sub-dial hands. By this morning bidding was already at £83.

The Italian eBay seller's 10-day auction listing for a well worn 7A38-7070 wasn't due to end until Saturday (8th September) afternoon. But yesterday evening, when bidding was at 141 Euros, after 27 bids, they ended the auction early as 'Sold'. Presumably they actually sold it for a higher figure, via 'the back door'. :/

A familar looking ZFM 7A38-7075, fitted with a distinctive non-original replacement Seiko bracelet reappeared on eBay in the States, earlier this evening, listed by a greedy would-be profiteering re-seller, with a 'pie-in-the-sky' Buy-it-Now price of $750 - DOUBLE what he paid for it back in February this year.

Pre-owned Seiko 7A38-7075, working properly, it fits a 7 1/2 inch. wrist. Shipping just to the 48 continental states.


This ZFM 7A38-7075 has been documented in this thread in perhaps half a dozen posts, starting back at the end of December 2017 (on page 5) where it was first listed by the original Brazilian seller. It last sold for $375 on 10th February:

Here's another 7A38-7070 fitted with a cheap leather strap (in place of the original bracelet). Not quite as clean as the last one - this is probably better described as 'crud encrusted' rather than 'very good to excellent'. :roll: It was listed at lunchtime today by a US eBay seller, as a 10-day auction with an opening bid price of $45. Might I add a typical parochially minded US eBay seller, who won't ship outside CONUS; they're actually blocking bids from outside USA. Short-sighted in more ways than one, particularly if they can't see the ingrained filth around the bezel and pushers.

VINTAGE SEIKO QUARTZ CHRONOGRAPH SPORTS 100 MAN'S WRISTWATCH RUNNING CONDITION

Here is a very handsome Seiko Chronograph man's wristwatch being sold for a local estate.

This is a Quartz Sports 100 model and it's in running condition.

The stainless steel case measures about 40 mm in diameter by about 42 mm long from lug tip to lug tip. To my eye the case looks great. I did not see any issues. The case is hallmarked on the back as follows: "Seiko 432967, Water Resist, St. Steel, Japan, 7A38-7070 AO."

The crystal is glass (I think) and it looks very good with a few light scratches.

The dial is a handsome / dramatic black color. It looks very clean. I did not see any issues.

White colored hash marks and hands to denote the time. There is a large sweep second hand.

There are 3 separate inset dials and 4 pushers on the side of the case. I see one of these dials working but I cannot figure out how the other pushers and dials work. They might not be working - I don't know.

Hallmarked on the dial is "Seiko, Quartz, Chronograph, Sports 100."

It comes with a handsome "Genuine Leather" band.

It has a new battery and it is running but please see above as I cannot figure out how the pushers operate.

The estate has priced it to sell.

Overall, I would say that it looks to be in very good to excellent condition considering it's age.

I hadn't previously bothered mentioning it, but the greedy would-be profiteering US re-seller of that ZFM 7A38-7075, fitted with the distinctive non-original replacement Seiko bracelet, had reduced his 'pie-in-the-sky' Buy-it-Now price of $750 down to 'only' $675, 10 days ago. This morning, he ended the listing early, citing: because the item was lost or broken. All I can say, is that given the price he was asking, that was extremely careless or clumsy of him. :roll:

The above 7A38-7070, which sold on 30th September for $152.50, re-appeared on eBay earlier this evening, in a slightly different guise, now fitted with an ill-matching generic replacement stainless bracelet, in place of the previous cheap leather strap. It's now being listed as a 7-day auction, with an opening bid price of $400, by the irksome would-be profiteering re-seller flobaca. Typically greedy mark-up using his standard template listing. Incidentally, in case anybody is wondering, although the previous seller didn't include a photo of the case-back, it's not difficult to indentify as being the same watch from the matching dings and scratches on the bezel insert. Plus, if you check the encrypted winning bidder ID on the previous auction, it's clearly flobaca's alter ego zenodass44 (now with private feedback).

This average worn condition 7A38-7070, fitted with a Yobokies repro' bezel insert was listed yesterday evening by a German eBay seller, with a 'pie-in-the-sky' Buy-it-Now price of 330 Euros. From the seller's description, it also appears to be suffering from a uniquely customised 'dropped S' SEIKO dial logo (movement fumbled by a clumsy amateur) and recalcitrant sweep second hand. :roll:


http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/273502615746



Guter gebrauchter Zustand mit Tragespuren an Case und Band aus Februar 1984, volle Funktion von Uhr und Tag/Datumsschaltung. Langes Band und neues Inlay auf der gut drehbaren Lünette. Glas ohne Kratzer. Beim SEIKO Schriftzug auf dem Ziffernblatt ist das "S" etwas deformiert.

Die grosse Stopsekunde muss sich manchmal erst freiruckeln wenn der Chrono kalt lag oder lange nicht benutzt wurde. Alle Drücker gehen knackig wie neu.

Trage sie seit 3 Tagen und der Chronograph läuft, stopt und resettet richtig. Justage auch top und Selbsttest bei Drücker auf 4 für 3 sek. drehen alle Chronographenzeiger einmal rum. Kostenmässig ist ein kleiner Ölwechsel schon einkalkuliert.

Here's another 7A38-7070 in similar, but slightly more original and unmolested condition, which was listed at lunchtime today by an Italian eBay seller, as a 7-day auction, with an opening bid price of 220 Euros. The seller has only uploaded the one photo.
