This watch is a lot of bang for the buck. It is a classic vintage watch built to the highest horological standards for a production watch that is still practical for every-day use, still able to be serviced and maintained.
Remarkable when it was released it is still truly impressive:
• Quartz chronograph with:
o 1/20 second register
o Hold and restart
o Solid metal construction allowing servicing and tuning;
• Used in movies as diverse as James Bond and Alien.
• Available in three common model variants:
o 7A28 – base model
o 7A38 – add day and date
o 7A48 – add moonphase
• And then, for each of these models there were numerous case shapes, some with external tachometer bezels, others with rotating diver’s bezels.

IMHO these 7a28 and 7a38 watches are a real investment. As it gets harder to get watches repaired or maintained, and so many vintage watches are either too small or too fragile to wear, these watches stand out – they have the quality, durability, timelessness and ease of maintenance to continue appreciating as many other vintage watches are retired to displays.

This example is:
• Working but when cold one of the chronograph hands does not return correctly.
• Has a new correct glass crystal fitted – using the correct glass with a bevelled edge makes the watch look so much better than the cheaper plain glass or plastic crystal.
• New back seal – pusher and crown seals should be checked as part of a service.
• Case top groomed – some marks remain. The rest of the case has been left to preserve all sharp edges.
• Occasional stickiness of chronograph hand when cold – needs a service.
• Seiko Quartz bracelet – good fit, right era and style but I have fitted this from my collection and cannot guarantee that it is exactly the same bracelet that the watch would have had when new.
