    Nothing at my flea market yesterday. Except...

    A Seiko. A gold plated Seiko 7005-2000, which I bought, and an overpriced 9ct gold Trebex, which I didn't. I also have an identical model in stainless steel.
    And now the pics:











    The best bit was the price I paid.

    Wonkily. One leg is shorter than the other ;)

    It's running fine. Gained about ten seconds in 24 hours according to the computer, but I can live with that.

    Why not make a guess, and I'll let you know if you're right?

    Hi JL,

    Thats not a bad looking watch.... overpriced..... but thats what you get in Bucks! It is crazy how much you can pic up vintage Seikos for!!

    I have owed a few of that model... the last of which was this....






    I think it cost £6 (or in the region of).... It still does not beat the King Seiko (KS) with High Beat Auto movement, Boxed, for £4!

    Im guessing yours is a 1972/73 era one like mine??


    I spent time cleaning it up.... did not bother to replace the crystal, as it would not add anything to the value.... think I got in the region of £20!

    Personally I don't think it was overpriced. There's a small profit to be made when I come to sell it, which will probably be sooner than I thought. Still, I'll enjoy it while I have it.

    Hi JL,

    I was joking about the 'overpriced'.... thats why i went on to say about how crazy it is!!! I obviously need to work on my sarcasm!!

    I would have snapped it up at that price.... It is however sad how these get undervalued (IMO) by sellers and collectors....

    As for profit, in percentage terms, Im sure you can make a great profit on that watch!!
