Re: The ONE and ONLY WRUW thread - Part Deux !

Better late than never, here's a wrist shot of my newest incoming gold-tone NOS 7A38-7000 SAA008J. Bling, Bling. 8-) Catching the last rays of Summer with my second string example of gold-tone 7A38-7000 SAA008J. I thought I'd posted a wrist shot of this one around the time I'd acquired my NOS examp...

Re: The ONE and ONLY WRUW thread - Part Deux !

I've spent a couple of hours this morning, continuing the reorganisation of my collection boxes, cataloging and tagging watches as I go. This little exercise involved congregating all my 7A38-706x's into one box. While shuffling them around, I came across another Italian market two-tone 7A38-706B, w...

Re: The ONE and ONLY WRUW thread - Part Deux !

Not all the watches in my collection are in pristine condition and a few, like this extremely rare two-tone 7A38-706x variant, are unfortunately far from it. At the risk of repeating myself .... here's one I don't think I've ever actually posted a wrist shot of before - not even in the old forum's ...

Re: Heads Up on yet another 7A38 Franken(s) - Part 3 !!

I think this calls for the resurrection of one of my old forum custom smileys - specifically this one: https://hosting.photobucket.com/albums/aa373/Seiko7A38/Various%20Odds/Smilies/.highres/groan.gif That 7-day auction for a well-worn 7A38-7029 / 7A38-7290 722L dialed Franken, with a badly stretched...

Re: Profiteering US eBay re-seller Flobaca strikes again !

In the early hours of this morning, profiteering US eBay re-seller flobaca listed this well-worn gold-tone 7A38-7289 as a 7-day auction with an opening bid price of $125. Note that it's been fitted with a non-original red-tipped aftermarket sweep second hand (by him). https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SEIK...

Here's where he bought them and what he paid: The 7A38-7240 which re-seller hollizaak007 listed this lunchtime was listed by French eBay seller 2015-mokra in the last week of May with a reasonable Buy-it-Now price of 169 Euros.

Re: Yet another mis-represented non-original replacement bracelet

This stainless 7A38-7270, in average worn condition, fitted with an unidentified* non-original replacement bracelet was listed late this morning by UK eBay seller ianwoodland63 - a known dealer, with a typically greedy Buy-it-Now price of £340.99, which is probably double what it's realistically wor...

Re: The ONE and ONLY WRUW thread - Part Deux !

You'll often see the word 'RARE' mis-used by unscrupulous eBay sellers to promote their listings for common-or-garden 7A38 variants and bandied about on Instagram by those who know no better. :roll: At first glance, this watch may appear nothing out of the ordinary. Indeed it bears a passing resembl...

Re: Profiteering German eBay re-seller Quartzwerk continued ....

The 2020 UEFA European football championship ended in July, frankly in a disgrace. I don't follow football, but I watch the news. Not surprisingly, interest in profiteering German eBay seller quartzwerk 's contrived listing for a ludicrously over-priced UEFA-hyped well-worn stainless 7A38-7020, mit ...

Re: The ONE and ONLY WRUW thread - Part Deux !

Just trying on my latest incoming Seiko 7A38, which DHL delivered about an hour ago, all the way from sunny Ecuador. It's a ZFM Brazilian manufactured 7A38-7085 (hence the lack of 'JAPAN', next to '7A38', at right of the 7 o'clock baton). I've been looking for one of these for a while and more or le...

I'm probably wasting my time posting this salutary warning, but here's another common-or-garden two-tone 7A38-7190 (same model as above and the top of this page), fitted with an undisclosed non-original generic replacement bracelet. It was listed by an Italian eBay seller this morning, with a descr...
