Hi
I was wondering if anyone collected Seiko 38 series Quartz watches, these were early analogue watches with adjustable stators, very high tech for there time.
I have not seen any reference to them for a long time.

Do you mean the 7A38? I have a few. Two 7280s and a 6010.

I'd guess the TO really means the 38xx series, having an interesting quartz movement with half of the "normal" frequency (16.384 instead of 32.768).
That's an unusual collection, but very interesting!

Cheers,

Axel

Hi Martin,


Ha! If not a collection, what would you call that? An accidental conglomeration of watches bearing the same basic caliber? I kid.


Which one is your earliest one? I forget, though I want to say the horseshoe-shaped 3802. Am I close? Thanks for showing them all together.

I forgot that the VFAs are also 38 series. As for the dating, the 3802 is from September 1971, which is the earliest date I have seen for a non-VFA 38 series. I think that the Q series branding was introduced only after this watch was sold. The white VFA below is from July 1971, which is also rather early.
