Seiko 7002-8000 from 1993
For sale is a Seiko 7002-8000.
Mention the calibre 7002 and people will think of the predecessor of the famous SKX007 and descendant of the slim 6309. Only a handful of collectors are aware of the dress watch line launched with the calibre 7002.
The 7002-8000 features a dark grey dial with elements that resembles the Seiko Alpinist.
The watch features a brushed case with polished bezel for contrast. The mid section of the case protrudes out to meet the lug at a level lower than the case to give the watch more depth.
It is worth noting that Seiko used a single domed crystal for the 7002-8000, a rare choice of crystal by them. This magnifies the dial making it look bigger and up clearer than with a flat or double domed crystal.
It is worth noting that all 7002-8000 are equipped with calibre 7002 made from Singapore, with the word "Singapore" engraved on the rotor and the acronym "SIN" engraved just beside the balance wheel.
The watch case is in immaculate condition with little signs of usage seen other than scratches seen on the case back. The dial and hands are free form any signs of aging. A brand new crystal has been installed for clarity.
The watch comes on a brand new handmade top grained leather strap.
Serial number has been covered for privacy.
