Hi all, I've always been a big fan of the 7A28/38 series and over the years I've managed to acquire a few including the less common 'Alien' model and others. Recently I bought this 7A38-7140 in excellent condition and working perfectly. The price was the South African equivalent of $70 USD. I love it.

Other uncommon 7A28/7A38 models

Here are two more pictures of these amazing watches that I've been lucky enough to find over the years here in Cape Town. The 7A38-6020 has a cobbled up strap that looks awful but is functional. I'm on the lookout for the right S/S bracelet. The 7a28-7000 'Alien' is all original. Both watches are a bit scratched etc, but look a lot better in the flesh (and especially on a moving wrist!)

The problem we have in South Africa is the tragic exchange rate w.r.t. the USD, Euro etc. At the moment 1 Euro = 14.50 ZAR, so buying from international sites is sometimes prohibitive. However, the rare watches do turn up here quite frequently and I've been very lucky!

You should keep an eye open for the SAAF issued 7A28-7040 and 7A38-7070 Jules.

Gotta be some still left in your neck of the woods.

A couple of years back there was a SAAF issued 7A28-7040 FS on junkmail.co.za - in Gauteng, asking price 1500 Rand
