I've never quite understood the logic behind 'Job Lot' listings, but you see plenty of them. Earlier this week another 7A38-6040, in average worn condition, was listed (and re-listed) on Yahoo Japan, in a job lot with a couple of other random Seiko quartz watches, as a one-day auction with an opening bid price of 70,000 Yen.

There were dozens (literally) more photos of the 7A38-6040 (and the other watches) embedded in the description, in 2 very long strings measuring 900x8100 pixels ! :o I haven't figured out how to crop them yet, so for the time being - and expediency's sake, I'm going to try linking them direct from the Japanese seller's image host. Don't be surprised if the links don't work, or if they disappear soon.

Note the conversion to approx. $630 US. Needless to say, that the evidently totally incompetent Japanese eBay seller utsun_2014, who appears to be attempting (and failing badly) to provide a proxy selling service still has them listed on eBay, 2 days after the YJ auction ended, for a risible Buy-it-Now price of $1000 !! :lol:
