Usually don't buy something without knowing what it is, but this BIN appeared to be a deal so I grabbed it:

Learned my lesson before about waiting too long to jump on a BIN, you might not have enough time to research or debate before "POOF!," someone else snags it.

THEN I went to figure out what it was... Looks like I got one of these:

So, anyone got one of these SNAB series chronos? Thoughts? I like it.

Re: Buy first, ask questions later!

Interesting! With that alarm, I wonder if it is the 7T62 movement. Price-wise, looks like you scored!

Great catch!
I think I would have taken a punt at that price!

Re: Buy first, ask questions later!

Well, received my BIN, absolutely love it.

Certainly not for everyone, what with the trigger on the side and such, but how can you go wrong for $40....









Unfortunately the bracelet it came on is much too small, and I don't know how or where I'm gonna find links.

If you call Seiko USA(if that is where you are) and give them the info off of the caseback, they will send you up to three links for free. I did it with a bracelet for an orange monster that was too small.

Looks good. The sweet price makes it even better. Now you can spend your weekend like me trying to figure out how the slide rule works.

How does that trigger thing work. It is a cover or is it actually the button?

sqelio, thanks for the tip.. Yep, I'm in US so I will give 'em a call and see what happens.


nhoJ, the trigger is the pusher, actually it engages the button, here's some quick pics:






underside shot, you can see the button under the trigger:





The design seems to be so that it is easily held in the hand like a stopwatch, using your thumb on the "trigger".... works great.
