Reasonably priced 'NOS' 7A38-6060 SAA071J on eBay Italy

Post by Seiko7A38 »

Some of the rarer more desirable 7A38's have turned up on eBay Italy over the years in NOS condition. However, they're frequently stupidly over-priced and often not quite as 'NOS' as the might be. Case in point. This mint 7A38-6060, fitted with an incongruous tan leather strap, which appears to have been crudely notched to fit the 18mm lug width, was listed at lunchtime yesterday, by an Italian seller. However, his asking price is quite reasonable, compared to some - €350 Euros (or Best Offer).

I must admit, I was surprised that it hadn't been snatched up overnight. Not by myself, I hasten to add. I already have two 'NOS' 7A38-6060's, fitted with non-original silicone straps.

Checking my eBay watching page, I see that NOS 7A38-6060 SAA071J (head) sold late yesterday afternoon for the €350 Euros Buy-it-Now asking price. My only surprise is that it took 6 days to find a buyer. :roll:

It may be a wild guess on my part, but I believe the same NOS condition 7A38-6060 rocked up on Instagram yesterday, posted by sand.sti (Stian Sandvik). It's now fitted with a non-original bracelet whose finish very closely matches the carbonised titanium of the watch case. I see Rob Lambert asked about the strap - Stian gave a typically cagey reply.
