I have a collection of Seiko 7A28 based watches and recently picked up a fair example of the 7A28-7010.

It needed a new crystal and also a service to fix a chronograph fault. While I was doing this I decided to relume the dial batons and the hands.

Within a day or so of buying this, I spotted another very similar watch (the Seiko Spirit SBTQ073). I won it for the opening bid price, which given the condition and the fact it came on a Hirsch strap as well as the steel bracelet made it a no brainer to quote Mr Bacon.

Here are a few pictures - side by side:

I really like both, but the new one would be better with the old style hands IMO.
Much more legible in all lights.

I like that Seiko has gone back to the 3 6 9 layout VS. the 8 9 12 layout on some of their quartz chronos.

And black and white it a classic combination.
