Just wanted to share about a couple of really great interactions with Jan. He really helped me round out my 7002 collection. I picked up the blue dialed 7002-7020 he had up on the forum and a week or so later I reached out to him to see if he had a decent example of an all original 7002-700J. I don't know about the rest of you, but I've had nothing but bad luck trying to get a good 7002-700J (modded, refurbished (badly), trashed, corroded are all I ended up with...). Jan didn't have one, but he was able to source a really nice one for me from a friend after a couple of days...

Can't thank him enough.

You need the black and blue 7002-7029‘s with Hong Kong dials. These really are elusive.
Despite the ’9’ suffix, they seem to turn up in Australia and New Zealand.
. . . and Thailand ;)

Beautiful Collection of 7002s :) I did not realize that there were so many.

I have a black with blue chapter ring Hong Kong Dial 7002-7029 that has been sitting in the "waiting to restore" drawer for over two years now :)

Absolutely true. But I have never seen either one for sale...I was starting to think they didn't exist. The hunt never ends...

My Apolgies. I forgot that the Forum has a rule that a watch cannot be offered for sale for 7 days after being featured in a discussion thread. An excellent rule for a very good reason :) Therefore my 7002-7029 is Not For Sale and back in the "To Be Restored Another Day" drawer it goes. Sorry for the confusion.

Lovely collection!
Guess I lucked out when I bought this non runner a 6 years ago. Had it cleaned and serviced. Been running great since. Probably due for a service again, but I haven't worn it much in a while. Just loved the look of it, and for work I needed to see the second hand easily. Had to look back an see what it cost me, it was $74 (eBay) and $75 to service/clean it. It was full of old grease an foreign fibers apparently. I'm happy either way.
