Thoughts On My 7A28-703A

Just thought I'd share a few pics of my 7A28-703A, I love the 80's feel (being myself born in the eighties) of these, and of course the 15 jewel movement. Anyway it's not a 'minter', got the odd dink here and there (I like a bit of wabi) but overall not bad for something that's nearly as old as myself.

I know there's a lot of love for the 7A28+7A38's here and quite rightly so...

Very nice. :thumbsup: I've often been tempted by the 7A28-703x's - particularly the black-faced 7A38-7039. :unsure:

There's a similar-looking, but Black/White 'panda' version of your watch, a JDM model - the 7A28-7100:

If only they had a Day / Date window in that three o'clock sub-dial. :whistle:

Like a ,erm, 7A38 by any chance :D

:grin: :thumbsup:

I like the look of the 'panda' style 7a28-7100, thanks for that, take it they're rarer than a rare thing then?

They were a JDM (Japan Domestic Market) model - not for export - hence the different CHRONOGRAPH script.

They turn up on eBay occasionally - usually in the Philippines, which often means they've been messed with. :fear:

If you want a half-decent unmolested example, Yahoo Japan Auctions is really the best place to look for one. :wink:

Relatively so. :lookaround: There are various third party agents: SMJ (Shopping Mall Japan); Rinkya, etc..

Those two are the biggest, but more expensive. I'd recommend using Japamart.com personally. :thumbsup:

Great looking watch. I love the contrast with the colours. Do you intend to actually wear it or just keep it in a box and bring it out occasionally to admire it ? I bought one of these a while back but not in anywhere near as good condition as yours. Stupidly I bought it in a hurry and didn't realise until it arrived that it had no day'date display. I had no trouble selling it on though and recently bought myself the 7A38 with day/date. These are great watches. You even got yours on a decent looking bracelet. Mine arrived on a bracelet off a totally different make of watch. Wear it in good health and have a great 2012. :partytime:
