this is a very brief review if my latest HAQ ebay fishing. Bought it as non working for a decent price, it was really a gamble on my side. And when it came to my house it was REALLY not working. At all.
It's a 9726-8000, an export model featuring a thermocompensated twin quartz movement, day and date (English/English) and the hour hand adjustable for tracking different time zones without hacking the movement, hence the nickname "Trans Zone Syncroniser".
The case, the bracelet and the clasp are in fully original condition, never polished and totally unmolested. The bracelet has even all the extra links. I also have an original SQ box and a warranty unused instruction manual.
The charcoal dial is really amazing, with applied Seiko and SQ logos and indices. The day and date wheel and also the hands are in near prefect condition.
The watch underwent a full overhaul, that included a total dismantle of the movement and cleaning of all the electrical parts; there was rust inside and some acid leaked from the battery.
After that all the functions are perfect, the hour hand adjusts independently from the movement, the date quickset and the hacking work as they should. The day doesn't have a quickset function.
And what about the timekeeping? Originally this was a 20spy watch, more than 30 years ago. Now it's much BETTER! After a week of testing it ran an incredible +0,15 sec / week.
It's now my everyday watch, with its perfect size for my small wrist, its amazingly comfortable bracelet and the fantastic accuracy. Here is a wrist shot.
Hope you enjoyed it.
