Unusual listing for a NOS condition 7A38-6010 watch case

Post by Seiko7A38 »

Was anybody else here watching this Spanish eBay auction for a NOS condition 7A38-6010 watch case ? It was listed this time last week as a 7-day auction, with an opening bid price of 49 Euros. The Spanish seller seemed unaware that what he'd dropped into the empty case was actually a 707L dial for a 7A38-705A. :roll: For most of the week, I had remained the high bidder. I didn't really need either the case nor dial, but had been mulling over a couple of ideas of using them to create frankens. Yesterday afternoon, by chance I struck up an Instagram DM conversation with a forum member. ;)
Transpired he also had his eye on it and more importantly, specifically wanted the case to refurbish his 7A38-6010 ....
So naturally, I deferred to his greater need. ;)

The auction ended a few moments ago, selling for 86.50 Euros after 8 bids - less than I'd anticipated.
