I was looking at that one too John, I could'nt find any info out on the HI-7 dial.
A drop of oil and a bit of polish and that will come up nicely.
Id be interested to see what you find out about that dial.
well i spoke to Ramon and he says it is a Genuine Seiko...and from what i can find out it was a Commerative model..i think it is a 7458 with a tuna style bezel..well it is on the way..Long Bike...that dial may be cool for the tst..i just wanted it for parts..very shocked how little love for it...but now i might just want to save it after all....i am told it looks much better than the pics too..well i think the date is from the Rowanda Genocide in Africa..well i will add better pics once i have it in hand...
Ramon does come up with some weird stuff sometimes. The price is cheap enough sometimes its worth buying just to see what it is. You never really know what you are going to get from him. Some are a lot better than they look and clean inside and others can sometimes be a pile of rust inside the case. If you are dedicated enough you can bring back many of these watches and the more unusual the watch the more enjoyable it is.
well to be honest...what i wanted it for was the bezel..it looked like a tuna bezel and we all know how pricey they are..i thought i could resell it of i did not like it..but it is growing on me..still unsure..
