O/K last weekend in the middle of feeling pretty crappy I managed to actually score at a couple of flea markets. The one flea market in particular I took a chance on a bag of about ten watches for $2.00. Among them was this Seiko 7025-8069 from November of '77.

Here's the before pics.




I had a chance the other night to clean it up a little bit. I threw it on a generic 18mm Speidel leather I had laying around until I can figure out my strap/bracelet options for this one.

Here's the after pics.






Cheers!
Mike

That's lovely!


Now, I've got a 7006-8007 from September '75 that's almost identical to that - my dial is a smoky grey iridescent model, not a grey sunburst like what you've got. Was the 7025 a successor to the 7006?

The 7006 is a day/date. The 7005 is a date only. I do believe that the 7025 was the successor to the 7005. I'm unfamiliar with this caliber, so I could be wrong. Gotta do my homework.

Cheers!

Nice restoration Mike :)

The 7025 calibre is the 7005 with udgrades/updates. I imagine it was used in slightly better grades of watches...at least from a marketing perspective. I'm just surprised it isn't a higher jewel count like the corresponding 7009, 7019, 7039 movements.

Thanx Peter! When I opened the watch up I didn't notice any glaring differences between this one and my 7005 aside from the upper plate being stamped 7025.

Cheers!
