Found this watch for sale on eBay. Haven't seen a square chrono before and thought id share. I'm interested in its history and your comments.
In the words of Tony The Tiger .... Theeerrrrreee greeeeaaat! Mind you what a watch you already own! Had a look at them but don't fancy selling my car to own a watch!Thanks for your insight Clock bloke. I saw his feedback % and figured he was pretty good. I was a little bit dubious as his posted charge is not what you would expect to pay for a domestic delivery. I live in Australia.
I wonder if they are located elsewhere and uses an Australian shipping address.
I will definitely research this movement as I am looking to add a chronograph to my collection.
I have a victorinox valjoux and I thought that would satisfy my automatic chronograph but there is something about Seikos simplicity that I would love to own.
That one would worry me if it's the one I think it is in Australia. First off some of the worst condition watches I've ever seen come out of Australia! It must be a harsh enviroment for watches.
Nice isn't the 7018 the high beat movement?
mine says hello .. this is a much rarer model than the 7016 monaco .. it's a 7018-5000. The case is different and it's a 7018 which is similar to the 7016 but lacks the hours counter.
I'm trying to find a crystal for this one but apparently it's not easy!
no, it's essentially the same as a 7016 but without the hours counter .. the 7018-5000 is totally different to the 7016-5000 .. the dial is similar but case is different & I think the dial colour combination was never available on a 7016.Nice isn't the 7018 the high beat movement?
Congrats and welcome to the addiction sector! Book up with a shrink right now to save time having to wait!!!It's done. I've taken a gamble and won an auction on a chrono. Decided not to go the Monaco for its price and the description.
Got this one instead for 1/6 of its current price.
Will see how it goes.
Advertised as running.
Don't know that model but could be either being Seiko. The glass is called Hardex and does scratch but can be polished out. Give Stefan a pm he goes by seikochrono on this forum. He's the 4th emergency service as far as I am concerned and I bet he wears his underpants over his trousers too.Thanks. I've already seen a new glass on eBay- quite possibly a crack.
Is it acrylic or hardened glass?
