With an opening bid price of 320 Euros (and no PayPal payment option) I'd say this Italian eBay seller is pushing his luck somewhat.


http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/221528729394

The brief description simply reads:


Raro Seiko Sport 100 quarzo cronografo giorno e data uomo subaqueo 7A38- 6020


Plus there's only the one photo:




.... in which there's plenty of evidence of wear to the brown outer coating, through the black chrome to the base metal underneath.

Typically, the bezel printing is faded to yellow, plus the acrylic inlay is spit at 30 (instead of at the bezel pip where it usually goes).

What the condition of the bracelet is like, in tems of coating wear or number of adjustment links present, is anybody's guess. :/



That Italian eBay auction listing for a 7A38-6020 ended a few minutes ago. Not exactly a surprise (to me) there were no takers. :roll:

The would-be Italian eBay seller re-listed it almost immediately - exactly the same as before.

Two days (of the 3-day re-listing) later, the Italian eBay seller Carlo_95 made a couple of revisions:


http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItemRevisionDetails&item=221531006781




.... Adding the desirable (especially when dealing with Italian eBay sellers) PayPal option and two more less-than-all-revealing photos:



It made no difference. Again there were no bids - and so re-listed once again this morning: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/221533896855

This eBay listing for a brown-coated 7A38-6020 appeared overnight. Exactly why the Filipino seller time_essence has written the phrase: “polished, with tolerable hairline scratches.” in both his Sellers Notes and Description is something of a mystery, because compared to other previous examples of this model we've seen coming out of the Philppines, this one appears to be in reasonable condition - and remarkably unmolested. One can only assume this anomoly has been copied over from a previous listing template.


http://www.ebay.com/itm/301342384656



 

A MUST-HAVE COLLECTION OF SEIKO CHRONOGRAPH MENS WATCH

 

ITEM DESCRIPTIONS 

Authentic Seiko chronograph Mens Watch, japan made. original black dial and hands, pvd bezel-rotates with click, case is pvd and backcase are SS, original crown, pvd bracelet, quartz movement. See pictures for best descriptions.

Sizes are approximately 43mm excluding crown x 43mm lug to lug, up to 7.50 wrist size

 

WATCH CONDITION 

1. polished , with tolerable scratches

2. Machine cleaned and oiled two weeks ago. No Water test

3. Newly serviced, watch gives time

 

Other Features: Quick set



Yes, the circumference of the case-back may have been polished, to remove slipped tool-marks, but otherwise there's just the usual rubbing wear to the coating on the bracelet and bezel - and the bezel lettering has faded from orange to pale yellow, which is quite normal for this model. Even the bracelet is a reasonable length at the stated 7.5". It'll be interesting to see what this one makes.

Thought that might end in something of a snipe-fest. With 10 seconds to go, bidding was still only @ $81, but it ended at double that. 


http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/301342384656



Sold for $168.05 - equivalent to approx. £104.84 after 12 bids - the last 4 bids coming in the final 5 seconds.

Erstwhile fanatical Australian collector Stuart Lennard (ex-forum member 'ginny') appears to be carrying on with the dissolution of his 7Axx collection. Two weeks ago he listed eight various 7Axx's on eBay: a mixture of 7A28's, 7A38's and 7A48's. Overnight, he's listed another ten - mostly 7A38's this time. I'm not going to speculate as to his reasons - nor am I going to pass unnecessary comment on all of them. I'll simply document the sales of those where we already have a pre-existing 7A38-xxxx model specific thread, like this one.


Here's Stuart's listing for the brown-coated / black chrome 7A38-6020: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/121464189995



I've only bothered uploading 4 of Stuart's 12 photos from his eBay listing because quite frankly most of them are abysmal. Eight of them are very similar head on shots of the watch in its presentation box in varying degrees of lightness - or should I say darkness. :roll:

SORRY BUT DUE TO POSTAGE RESTICTIONS I CANNOT SHIP WITH BATTERY


Strangely enough, I can't tie this 7A38-6020 in to a NOS example of 7A38-6020 previously documented in this thread. I remember Stuart telling me in an email that he'd negotiated for the one listed by Italian seller Goffre78, back in September last year (see previous page), but that he'd been screwed over in the deal. This doesn't look like the same watch, because Goffre78's had very bright orange bezel lettering, whereas on Stuart's, the bezel lettering appears to be somewhat faded (not uncommon). I'd suspect however that it more than likely came from an Italian eBay seller (because of the white cardboard Seiko presentation box). Note also it has completely the wrong tag attached (for a SZY849J, instead of SAA043J), which immediately puts me in mind of that other Italian eBay husband and wife team of Angeli_65 and Strega_68. Perhaps I missed one ....? :/

Stuart's eBay auction for his NOS brown coated 7A38-6020 is due to end in almost exactly 12 hours time - at 1:13am (BST) Sunday morning, UK time - just before the clocks go back an hour (to GMT). It's the first of his current batch (of 11) eBay auctions to end.

I'm not sure if I'll bother staying up to report the results live. Let's see. Bidding is currently @ $580 (approx. £360) and I have a suspicion it'll go higher still. What I have observed (and is already p!ssing me off no end) is the persistant bidding by 4***d (23).

This is the same Japanese bidder and would-be profiteering re-seller who won Stuart's previous eBay auctions for his NOS 7A28-710A and 7A38-7140 and as soon as he received  them, listed both on Yahoo Japan auctions at a considerable mark-up. Looks like he has designs on quite a few of the current batch too, besides this 7A38-6020.


But, in the meantime, and speaking of profiteering eBay / YJ Japanese re-sellers, he's not alone. Swotlab has been at it for years:mad:

Indeed, although from memory, Swotlab also won a couple of Stuart's previous batch of 8 eBay auctions and has since listed them on Yahoo Japan (e.g. his 7A48-5010), this brown-coated 7A38-6020, which Swotlab listed on YJ today came from elsewhere on eBay.

Not only does the (over-polished) case-back serial number 4O6023 match (if you squint hard at both sets of photos), but you can see Swotlab's eBay ID mcn260 (which shows as either c***2 or 2***m in abbreviated / encrypted form) as the winning bidder.

The first of Stuart Lennard's current batch of eBay auctions - for his NOS brown-coated 7A38-6020 has just ended .


http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/121464189995



It sold for $590 (USD rather than AUD) equivalent to approx. £366.87 after 30 bids. Unfortunately the winning bidder was the would-be profiteering Japanese re-seller using the eBay ID 4***d (23), so I suspect this 7A38-6020 will also re-appear on Yahoo Japan Auctions in a couple of weeks time, with the price marked up accordingly disproportionately.

What I find mildly amusing is that thanks to this incompetent newcomer's efforts, there are now two brown 7A38-6020's on YJ ! :lol:

I dunno about  Mega Rare:roll: There's certainly no shortage of them in Japan at the moment. :lol: 

Listed this afternoon by the German eBay seller akarides who's currently giving his location as being in Italy ....

Where oddly enough, brown coated 7A38-6020's seem to turn up on eBay more regularly than anywhere else ....

But their coatings are usually in rather better condition than this very well worn example which he's now offering. :(


http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/111509998540



To buy a new watch from my collection I am selling a vintage SEIKO CHRONOGRAPH SPORTS 100 7A38 - 6020 reference. 

It is probably one of the rarest Seiko 7Axx Series Chronograph ever produced and really very hard to find.


A really massive and impressive chronograph: diameter is about 42,5 mm, thicktness about 13,5 mm and weight about 135 gramms. 

This exceptionally rare version has an "unique" metal case and bracelet with BROWN coating, massive brown coated metal rotating bezel with orange numbers to measure diving times. Unfortunately, as always happens on this vintage "coated" cases, the brown coating has wear and has faded expecially in the points that are more contact during the daily use. 

Very particular matt brown dial with ORANGE writings; orange styled hands for the chronometer and matt gold for the watch; tritium on indexes and on the hands; original Hardlex domed Crystal: dial and hands are in mint conditions. 

The watch is complete with its original bracelet reference Z1207. 

Anyway I think that the photos speak more than every word; I added a lot of detailed photos to show the exact conditions: indeed a very rare and unrestored 7A38. 

The serial number (51xxxx) dates this watch to the begin of 1985: all is in original conditions exactly as came out from the factory.

All functions are working properly: the stop-functions are working fine and the hands are running back to 12 o'clock position as intended to when resetting.

I will ship worldwide at the standard shipping cost. 

I am offering this item as private seller since I am a watch collector: no warranty and no return, but watch is 100% original, exactly as described and pictured (please see my feedbacks to verify my seriousness). 

Please ask for every question.


I could, but I'm being polite. :P

Note in the above photos there appears to be some issue with bracelet attachment on the 12 o'clock side. I doesn't sit quite right. 

I've noticed that akarides is in the habit of obscuring case-back serial numbers. I wouldn't call him a 'dealer' per se, but let's just say he buys and sells a few 7Axx's. This one has presumably been 'in his collection' since some time after the end of August this year.

Scroll back up the page to my post dated August 27th. It's the very same 7A38-6020 - serial # 511198 - same scratches too. 8)




Now you know why the previous would-be Italian eBay seller didn't show any of the top side of the bracelet in his two photos.

That eBay auction for the 7A38-6020 with badly worn brown coating (above) ended yesterday at around 3:00pm UK time. Thanks mainly to the misguided efforts of the persistent winning bidder, who placed 17 of the 44 bids, it sold for 250 Euros (approx. £199).

I'm pretty sure that I've expressed my doubts about the legitimacy of German / Spanish / Italian eBay seller akarides auctions before.

If I haven't said it publicly, I've certainly had my private suspicions that he regularly uses shill bidding, amongst other dubious tactics.

Perhaps that's what I should have written in my previous post. Because that's exactly what I was thinking. 


No surprise, here's the same well-worn brown-coated 7A38-6020 back again, re-listed as a Buy-it-Now for a laughable 350 Euros.

Akarides re-listing for his well-worn brown coated 7A38-6020 ended in the early hours of this morning - sold against a best offer.


http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/111533418104



I'd omitted to mention the couple of lines he'd added to the description:


PLEASE NOTE: Item was relisted because previous buyer didn't complete the transaction. (Yeah right)

I fixed a reasonable (read ludicrous) Buy It Now price considering the rarity of the watch (shipping will be free Worldwide using Buy It now). I will consider serious and reasonable offers. Please bidders under 10 feedbacks please contact me before.


Somehow I suspect it was the only offer he received.


http://www.goofbid.com/ebay_best_offers_tool.html?gbo_username=Akarides



42.86% of his pie-in-the-sky 350 Euros Buy-it-Now price equates to exactly 200 Euros. I bet he nearly took their arm off. :roll:

What I find mildly amusing is that thanks to this incompetent newcomer's efforts, there are now two brown 7A38-6020's on YJ ! :lol:




And so it carries on into the New Year, with both 7A38-6020's unsold and being re-listed on an almost weekly basis. :roll:


The YJ listing numbers remain the same:

 http://page13.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/r120581060 and http://page7.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/g145183173




However, would-be profiteering re-seller l_h_m_m has reduced his opening bid price a second time - now down to 'only' 75,000 Yen. Ironically, due to currency fluctuations (weak Yen) over the last couple of months, he now needs to make at least 76,000 Yen, just to break even and cover the $590 (+ $42 shipping) that he paid Stuart Lennard for it at the end of October. Oh dear, what a shame. :P

I've had to chuckle to myself over the last couple of weeks as those two brown coated 7A38-6020's have been re-listed ad nauseam on Yahoo Japan by their would-be profiteering re-sellers. Old hand Swotlab has got one over on comparative newcomer l_h_m_m, by now re-listing his on a daily basis - which of course  means it's constantly flagged as 'new' and comes higher in the search results.


Of course if you really want a 7A38-6020, the place to look is Italy. Not just eBay, but the other Italian classified sites: Kijiji and Subito.


I found a couple that I'd missed earlier, using an Italian sales site search engine. This listing is from late November last year:

Vendo raro Seiko Sports 100 7a38-6020 anni '85-'86 con batteria da sostituire. oggetto introvabile con scatola.

What was it I wrote, earlier today about Italy being the place to look for a 7A38-6020 ? :lol: Just listed on eBay Italy this evening:


http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/291367746981



SEIKO SPORTS 100 Chronograph 

Il più raro e forse il più bello della serie Sports 100

vintage anni 80

cassa acciaio pvd cioccolato, diametro 43mm escluso corone, quadrante integro e ottimamente conservato, sfere arancio, daydate al 3 con rimessa rapida (giorni settimana bianchi al di fuori della domenica che è di colore blu)

vetro minerale (piccoli segni non deturpanti) ghiera bidirezionale, corona al 8 e altri tre pulsanti per la cronometria, rilevazione tempo parziali e crono al centesimo di secondo.

alimentazione al quarzo seiko japan con motore a 15 (!!) rubini e ponti lavorati.

fondello serrato a vite con caratteristiche incise

perfettamente funzionante in tutte le sue parti, condizioni come foto, qualche normale perdita del rivestimento sugli spigoli, corredato di bracciale originale con TUTTE le maglie e scatola originale.

RICERCATISSIMO DAI COLLEZIONISTI

PIU' UNICO CHE RARO!!!


Athough it's described as 'fully functional in all its parts', I'd suspect the centre seconds chrono' hand might be a bit problematic;)

Slightly belated update on that brown-coated 7A38-6020 listed on eBay Italy at the end of January. It went unsold first time around. The seller then re-listed it, reducing the opening bid from 199 Euros down to 159 Euros. That auction ended yesterday afternoon, after only 3 bids, selling for 161.09 Euros (approx. £119.29).


http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/291374351114



Unfortunately, that won't be the last we see of that particular brown-coated 7A38-6020. The winning bidder id c***8 (773) belongs to Italian profiteering eBay re-seller cmax-28762, so I expect it'll be back on eBay in a week or so's time for double the price. :roll:

It's probably an unfair comparison, but that addition / revision this morning reminded me of Martinachertok's 7A38-7069 ! :lol:

The eBay auction for that 7A38-6020 'resto' project' ended at 10:30pm yesterday evening (UK time). I had placed a bid on it earlier in the evening and was briefly the high bidder. But then I changed my mind and messaged the seller asking him to cancel my bid - I'd decided I've got far too many unfinished projects already (including one of these, from years back, that I still need to refurbish). :/

Turns out it was academic anyway - it sold for a rather surprising 101 Euros (approx. £72) - more than double my bid. :roll:

I recognize the abbreviated / encypted winning bidder eBay ID 1***b as belonging to UK 7Axx collector Bob Barkell.
