Seiko 7T42-6A00 sports 150.

Recommended Posts

In my search for Seiko 7t32 part I came across this one. To good for parts, it is 100% operational, and in very good condition.large.1318189936_Seiko150Sport..JPG.a3195e12bb5de2448c4c8d5d07f85617.JPG

I have just sold a fully working one on Ebay and only got £40, I was gutted!

Though it's no consolation, welcome to the £40 Seiko 7txx club.

Thanks for that, do I get a badge or something?

A nice badge may make me feel a little better right now or maybe you could suggest where I could get therapy.

There's a mutual support group on here. @Nigelp is the founder I think. :notworthy: My working one made £41, and a broken one got £31. My working Pulsar Y182 made £51, so there's no logic to it at all.

To be honest with you it is even worse than that, I sold fully working one for (£40) and partial working one (£34) on Ebay, one guy bought both and has demanded a refund of £40 as a couple of the split pins were 'broken' on the bracelets probably damaged by him.

Sticks in my throat, makes selling on Ebay such a problem, should have known when the same guy bought the two 7T42's. I wish I'd kept them.

My guess is that your Y182 was top dollar because of the 7T32 link??? who knows, sometimes there is no rhyme or reason to Ebay. I have a Y182 NASA dial in white and yellow, they can be seen on Ebay for around £250.00 but I don't know who is paying that price for them, probably worth £150 if they are in mint condition.

It was titanium, so that might have helped.

Yes Titanium would have pushed it up. I have just bought a 7T32-7C60 (blue dial, blue sub-dials) and I got it for next to nothing, I just wonder if the value of 7T32/7T42 models have plunged, the mint, boxed, and, papers models are still on Chrono24 and Ebay for the silly prices of over £300, but, then there is a huge gap to what they sell for in 'normal' condition.

I have a boxed, instruction booklet, no guarantee booklet 7T32-6A5A (1988) and I thought it is around a £130 watch, yet there is one on Ebay for £199 no box, and no papers. The prices are all over the place. 

Talking of 7T32-6A5A, I am struggling to get mineral crystals for the two watches I own, Cousins don't have them anymore, I got the codes from Boley and the two codes listed show as obsolete.

Where have you bought crystals from for Seiko's???

I never looked for crystals. I had a blue 7C60 that needed work, but quickly realised it was beyond my skills and couldn't find a professional who would touch it. You might do better on Ebay - there's some sellers (eg watchprouk) selling replacement crystals for Seiko watches, including some 7Ts.

Cousins had them at the start of the year, the 6A5A were early versions of the 7T32, I may have to look elsewhere. I contacted Cousins but I am not sure I will get a reply.

Polywatch have started making a mineral crystal polish, I will see how that works first.

The 7T32's are ultra fiddly, lots of issues with poor connection to the circuit block. I have seen so many with 'leaky battery burn' to the circuit block. Trying to repair them can so rewarding or so frustrating.
