So predictable !! Once again, another listing ended as item no longer available. :roll:

That same gold-tone 7A38-7000 is back on eBay again - re-listed this afternoon.

And so it goes on.

Earlier this morning, German eBay seller silversurfer365 (a.k.a. Ketap 'Carlo') ended that latest re-listing because of an error - presumably in the pricing. :roll:

A quick shuffling of the photos, tweak of the title and it's back again, re-listed. :roll:

Well, it would appear that persistence has finally paid off for German eBay seller silversurfer365 (a.k.a. Ketap / 'Carlo'). His gold-tone 7A38-7000 eventually sold this afternoon - best I can tell for his slightly reduced Buy-it-Now price of 266 Euros.

Here's another gold-tone 7A38-7000, in similar, if not better condition than the last, listed earlier this afternoon by a German eBay seller, with a Buy-it-Now price of 195 Euros, or the option to make an offer.

Ich verkleinere meine Sammlung, da ich die Chronos kaum bis nie trage. Sowas merkt man ja gerne erst, wenn man genügend angehäuft hat.

Die Uhr ist in einem guten Zustand und läuft einwandfrei. Das Gehäuse ist unpoliert und die Vergoldung ist ausserordentlich gut erhalten. Das Glas hat 2-3 kleinere Macken… Mich hat es im Sommer nie gestört.

Das Original-Armband hat kleinere Tragespuren und ist bis 18cm HGU gut tragbar.

Tagesanzeige in Deutsch und Englisch (Samstag Blau und Sonntag Rot)

Alle Funktionen (Stoppuhr und Split-Funktion) funktionieren einwandfrei. Die Zeiger setzen genau auf 0 zurück.

Privatverkauf. Keine Garantie oder Rücknahme.

What might quite possibly be a nice example of a gold-tone 7A38-7000 was listed this morning by a UK eBay seller, with a Buy-it-Now price of £180, or the option to make an offer. Shame about the engraved clasp and the rather poor quality hazy photos. It must be the halo effect.

Rare 1980's SEIKO Quartz Chronograph 7A38-7000 Mens Watch-Worlds first quartz chrono.

The watch is in a very good condition for age with no scratches on glass, bezel or strap. Requires battery replacement. It has the name of the original owner inscribed lightly on strap clasp shown in photo.

Checking my eBay watching page, that gold-tone 7A38-7000 listed this morning by the UK eBay seller, sold earlier this evening.


http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/293269832677


Not as eBay would have you believe, for the £180 Buy-it-Now price, but as revealed by the alternative 'true selling price' link, for a very cheeky lowball offer of only £75.

It may have taken him two weeks (I note that he declined 4 offers), but yesterday afternoon, the German eBay seller succeeded in finding a buyer for his gold-tone 7A38-7000, who was prepared to pay the full 195 Euros Buy-it-Now asking price.

This well-worn gold-tone 7A38-7000, with a badly shattered crystal and fitted with a non-original replacement bracelet, was listed (twice*) yesterday evening, by a Bulgarian eBay seller as a 10-day auction, with an opening bid price of £0.99.

SEIKO 7A38-7000 CHRONOGRAPH Watch Rare

Crystal is broken but hands seems to be good as can be adjusted no issues

Got smashed few years ago but was still running

Now does not work as battery is drained

Selling as for repairs as not tested if all functionality will work as should

Case size is 40 mm

Please see the pictures for better details and condition. I will ship this tracked from Bulgaria. It usually takes around 7-14 working days for most European countries. Thanks for looking!


*The Bulgarian seller duplicated his listing, a little over a minute after uploading the first one. He subsequently realized his mistake and ended it accordingly.

The (original) 10-day eBay auction for that well-worn and mal-treated gold-tone 7A38-7000, fitted with a non-original replacement bracelet, ended 10 minutes ago, selling for £47 after 16 bids.

Someone's having a laugh. :roll:

Earlier this evening, a French eBay seller listed this gold-tone 7A38-7000, with a ridiculous 'pie-in-the-sky' Buy-it-Now price of 499 Euros (and currently no option to make an offer).


http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/333226761857


Please excuse the partial quote, but it is relevant. That French eBay seller did have the last laugh (if not at my expense). If you read my subsequent follow-up post on the previous page, then you'll already know he succeeded in selling that gold-tone 7A38-7000, albeit a couple of months later, for a quite exceptional 449 Euros.


Late yesterday evening, the same French eBay seller fab.m listed another. This example isn't in anything like as good condition as the previous one he sold, but he's still asking a disproportionately ludicrous 349 Euros as a Buy-it-Now (again, without the option to make an offer). Probably double what it's worth in real world terms. Let's see if he manages to pull it off a second time.

I almost missed spotting another gold-tone 7A38-7000 (it wasn't picked up by my regular saved searches*). It was listed a couple of days ago, by a German eBay seller, as a 7-day auction, with a highly over-optimistic opening bid price of 270 Euros, or the option to make a much lower more realistic offer.

Hallo Seiko Chronograph Vintage Quartz 7A-387000

Die Uhr ist eine echte ++RARITÄT +

Kaum Welzweit im Netz zu finden

Zustand: Gebraucht aber tragbar gut

Nicht verbeult

Die Batterie muss ausgetauscht werden weil die Uhr im Safe lag

Durchmesser beträgt ca 40 mm

Das Glas hat leichte Kratzer

Das Gehäuse weist auch geringe Gebrauchsspuren auf

Die Uhr zeigt Wochentag,Datum und natürlich dient auch als Chronograph

Preis für Versand außerhalb der EU muss eventuell ermittelt werden

Viel Spaß beim bieten.


*For the obvious reason shown in the first line of the seller's description. :roll:

This well-worn gold tone 7A38-7000 was listed in the early hours of this morning, by a US eBay seller, as a 5-day auction, with an opening bid price of $49.99. FWIW, it's being offered through eBay's dysfunctional GSP programme, which doesn't work for Seiko's, because of the covert embargo agreement. :roll:
