  2. The access times to the host server - especially when it is allegedly busy. :rolleyes: Still not been addressed apparently. :thumbsdown: Network Error (tcp_error) A communication error occurred: "Operation timed out" The Web Server may be down, too busy, or experiencing other problems preventing it from responding to requests.

  3. No, you're not missing anything, Roger. :nea: You can't - yet another shortcoming of this software revision. :thumbsdown:
  4. Well I'm pulling out. All my photos are gone already. See you guys around. :feck:
  5. Too much wasted (blank) white space (between text) on the screen when you're reading, for starters. :acute: I'm already compling my list. I think this revision of the software sucks. :thumbsdown: This might be what it finally takes to send me over to the dark side. :ph34r:
  6. How will we survive without :rltb: for two whole hours ? :lookaround: :sadwalk:
  7. It can be, Dave - for the un-initiated. :grin: There are 80-odd known legitimate permutations of 7A38-xxxx out there. Then you stumble across the un-documented versions like my recently acquired gold-tone 7A38-706A. :eek: Which I'm still not ashamed to admit, I first thought was actually a franken when I bought it. :duh: Hence the (sub)title I intially gave the thread: http://www.thewatchforum.co.uk/index.php?showtopic=71380
  8. I suppose I ought to flag up these couple of recent UK eBay listings .... If for no other reason than I know a certain other forum member has been looking at them. :wink2: There's a fairly new (to me, and 7A38's at least) eBay watch dealer who's popped up recently in the UK - Kaos121 .... apparently an apt choice of user ID. Chaos indeed. :rolleyes: The first 7A38 he listed was a gunmetal two-tone 7A38-725A, and no real problems with that. Just that I happened to note he included in his description for that one, the following sentence: The next one which followed a day later was item # 250965487720. This is clearly NOT a 7A38-7060, by any stretch of the imagination, but a two-tone 7A38-7270. See this old thread on WUS, with a few photos of a fairly familiar one: FS: Seiko 7A38-7270 Chronograph His latest offering, yesterday was item # 250966128062: Although the basic watch case shape may be the same (as the previous incorrectly identified 7A38-7270) .... it might not be obvious to everybody, but this (once) was a gold-tone 7A38-7190 - like this (my own mint example): Now whether this seller is being deceptive, or is just plain dis-organised and / or dyslexic .... and has just put new batteries in a few 7A38's, and got their case-backs mixed up, I wouldn't like to hazard a guess. :umnik2: All I can say, is if you're planning to bid on these two .... or his presumably next 7A38-7060 (which, if and when it materializes may likely be fitted with a 7A38-7190 case-back) .... You might want to ask a question (or two) of the seller, first. Caveat Emptor, Gentlemen. :hi:
  9. I think someone in their artwork department was more concerned with 'layout' than getting their facts right. :rolleyes: As you can see they've got the 7T59 underneath 1992, whereas it was produced only for 2 years from 1990 - 1992. :duh: In fact, if you flick back to the previous page, they mention the T001 and M16 for 1983 .... both of which have long since fallen deep into obscurity, in preference to the 7Axx's intro.
  10. Don't forget the 'A' word, Scott. :grin: Well officially it was 1983 when the Seiko 7A28 was launched (first) - the 7A38 followed a few months later. :grin: More detail here, in a superbly written article: http://www.ninanet.net/watches/others13/Mediums/mseiko7a28.html The World's First (and probably best-made) analogue quartz chronograph: .... well almost the best. I prefer them with a day /date added. To that you can add the World's First 1/100s Analogue Quartz Chronograph, the 7T59 in 1990:
  11. Did you see my belated edit for Jaz, Scott ? :huh: You can add Orient Watch Co. founded to 1950, too. :grin:
  12. Scott. You could add Yema founded to 1948. and Jaz (one 'Z' founded) to 1919: http://forumamontres.forumactif.com/t30418-la-boite-a-jaz
  13. Sorry, couldn't resist. :naughty: Surprising some of the things you find, when you google 'Orange Puke' .... ORANGE is the best PUKE color :yucky:
  14. All together now .... :thumbsdown: :yucky: :bad:
