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.
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.
