Look on the bay, thiers loads of modded 7002's and they seem to fetch more money than a unmolested one.
Anything from £125 to £250 depending on the quality of the mod.
At the end of the day its only worth what someone is willing to pay for it, which can be said for any watch really.

Imho, change the bracelet for a rubber strap, it will make the watch stand out more than the mesh you have fitted at the moment.

I don't know if eBay is the best place to find sales prices, unless you're planning on listing it as an auction. There are a lot of unscrupulous sellers and a lot of inexperienced buyers so the prices are kind of out of whack.
I bought my unmolested 7002 < $100 on the forums, but I've paid almost as much for AM pieces when I started out.

You could well be right, if you look at the Speedtimerkollection site, theres a dozen 7002's all with AM parts or modfdified and all are sub 100 euros

What is it about the 7002 being the ugly duckling among the past entry level seiko divers?
No one seems to be passionate about this model like the 6105, 6309 and even the modern skx.

I think it's looked at as a transitional piece. Yes, it's an older movement, but it uses the same basic case design as the current SKX so it takes a back seat price wise when the style can be had with a new movement. The rounded 6309 and 6105 are much more unique in that respect.

Thanks that makes a lot of sense
Also, why if more recent than 6309's and 6105's are they seldom seen all original?
I'm pretty sure I would have had one by now if more all original samples were more common, I like the rectangular indices.

Who said the 7002 is an ugly duckling?
IMHO the 7002 is an upgraded 6309 729x, and the SKX that followed the 7002 was unfortunately hampered with the 7s26 movement which was designed by the Seiko accounts dept, I.E cheap.

The 7002 is the last of the 150m divers, and at present a good genuine one is getting hard to find, i don't think it will be too far into the future that we will see the 7002 becoming an icon, along with its predecessors.

Aloha Ray , as for me ,...I think that the 7002 looks comparatively as good as the other divers at first glance . When I first started collecting them I really couldn't tell the difference between them .
But when I open the case back and look at the movement , although i wouldn't necessarily call it an ugly duckling , it definitely doesn't look as good as the others . For lack of a better description....it looks "cheaper" to me.
I have a few and would buy others , but I would not pay as much for it as the other models , and It would not bother me at all to mod this watch thinking I had nothing to lose .
I'm curious to know what your opinion is of this model . Ugly Duckling ??

Modded 7002's are everywhere.. Finding a pristine example in original condition is very difficult. I predict in future their rarity alone will push up the price of a good one.

Personally, I don't like the dial of the 6309-729X and 7002 divers. That "V" on top just doesn't do it for me ;)
