On to the OP's exact watch:
Watch Charts .com shows the only sale in the last 6 months was at $724 (sound familiar Peter?)

Going farther back sales in 2019 at $800-$900 and some unsold ones too, no telling if that was the same watch or up to 4 unique examples, and condition is unknown.

I would think the one you are selling, pristine if not immaculate, full kit, all links included, etc makes it a top of market value. Then the question becomes 'how many guys are interested in adding it to their collection? Not so much for the price point, just in general, how many collectors want one ? Seiko made a lot of these 7S36 oddities, limited editions and such, I love the 7S36 sushi roll family of reissues, I have no clue if this is highly desirable or not.
To me the question is not 'what is the right price?' but rather the right price is shown above, and the question is 'who is interested in owning this unique Limited Edition?"
yup, the guy was asking $1,250 for it and i got him to $725, i guess give or take a
dollar, but given the condition of the watch, i thought that was not a bad price,
and, i had a genuine curiosity about the watch. and it's one of those minty/nos
situations where i'll put it on my wrist for a careful hour or two around the house,
but i don't want to put wear and tear on it, it really is a beauty. it fits me well, but
i think it would better fit a guy who's at 7.5-7.75. it's a manly man's watch, i'm
just a regular guy, 7" after a workout.
i had no idea i was so influential. see what i mean about rare? * one * sale and
that defines the market for the watch in general? does that mean i have to sell
it for $724 ? i am not gonna bump it for 7 years like the last guy, sounds like
a mythological curse.
so, are any collectors out there seriously interested in owning a watch such as
this? if so, i am certainly happy to negotiate, and i would also be happy to get
this particular watch to the exact right guy.
sincerely, and with best regards,
