Well, if nobody else besides myself is going to bother posting wrist shots any more, I guess I'll have to start the next page. :roll:


Wearing this common-or-garden 'Argos Special' stainless 7A38-7190 SAA053J this afternoon. This is my 'second string' example, with slightly scabby sub-dials. I must get around to replacing that dial one day. :/



This isn't actually the watch I was planning to post a wrist shot of incidentally. 

I shot that one literally earlier this afternoon. It's back in pieces again.

This is going to get boring quickly. Here's another common-or-garden 7A38 model - one of my lesser examples of the two-tone 7A38-7020 SAA010J. You only get one guess as to why I got it out of the collection box this afternoon - Yup another one that needed a battery replacement. :roll:

Well, I deliberately left it for 6 weeks and still nobody else posted anything. :roll: So I guess I'll carry on where I left off - in splendid isolation. :( Here's a Q&D almost 'as received' shot of my recently acquired RACER J39723-70.

I suppose I should post a wrist shot of my newest incoming arrival - and what might conceivably be the last Seiko 7A38 that I ever need to buy - as it finally completes the 'full set' of my collection, Gentlemen, may I present my recently acquired, almost NOS condition 7A38-714A SAA049J, which arrived late this morning.

I was looking for a couple of decent wrist shots of my two 7A38-6010 SAA040J's to upload to Instagram. I wasn't really happy with any of those I'd taken previously, so this morning I rattled off a few more. These are the best efforts.


My NOS example:



My 'second string' example, in almost mint condition, save for a couple of tiny flaws, which came fitted with rubber strap, that I replaced with a NOS G1157F bracelet.

I still haven't sorted out the slightly distorted bracelet joining link (on 6 o'clock side) of my otherwise almost mint 7A38-6000 SAA039J yet, but I took a couple more photos of it this afternoon. With hindsight, this is probably the better one which I should have uploaded to my Instagram. :roll:

This morning, I took these couple of wrist shots of my JDM 7A38-6040 SJS038, intending to upload one of them to my Instagram page. I've never been entirely happy with the slightly sloppy fit of the bracelet end pieces - as can be seen in both these shots. So instead I 'cheated' and uploaded an older photo. :P

Wearing this stainless 7A38-727B SAA149J this morning - uncomfortably. Bracelet is a shade too tight. Going to have to dig into my 7A38-7270 'bits box' and see if I can find another B1615S bracelet adjustment link.

Just quickly trying on this NOS 7A38-7290 SAA095J which I bought last October and has remained in its presentation box. It still has the hang tag dangling from the bracelet (bottom RH corner). This photo reminded me that I need to carefully clean those small traces of sticky blue residue off the bezel. :roll:
