Just received this (7143-7020) today from Korea, what a beautiful elegant watch :cool:
Cant believe how thin, at 8.5mm, it is for the year (1979).





The only downside is the incredibly fiddly clasp on the bracelet:(

Thanks all, really over the moon with it, far better condition than I could have hoped for and the best part is it only cost me $20.50 + carriage :cool:

Just snagged one from a local flea market, nice dial. Mine doesnt come with original bracelet though. Think its better than similar watches from Suwa.
Despite my preference for mechanicals some of them older Seiko/Citizens from the mid 70s to early 80s are really nice with clean dial design and sleek hands that are well polished that yield good contrast under almost all lighting conditions. Am yet to catch any of them with twin Quartz though. Looking that the going prices guess its is not going to be easy to get one but I really am a bottom trawler for watches due to budget constraint. I am seeing quite a few of these Type 2s Seiko Chronos of late.
