It’s that time folks. Watchlist #15 covers the first week of April through the first week of June 2009.The watch pictured above is a 9923 Caliber King Quartz. Nice example too. 52,000 yen.
Here is a well worn SUS in the harder to find silver dial. You don’t often see these pictured on original straps. 26,800 yen.
This funky Seiko 7A chronograph had an opening bid of 85,000 yen, but there were no takers.
These mid 1990’s shrouded 7C43 divers don’t come up very often, and when they do, they usually generate interest. This one sold for 45,600 yen.
These pop up quite frequently on Yahoo! Japan. They are Seiko fashion watches and came in all sorts of colors and I think a couple of different styles. This one went for 8,000 yen.
This Autoquartz kinetic watch was the first style that Seiko used for the introduction of the kinetic movement in a dive watch. They came in steel, titanium and two tone versions. This one went cheap. 7,900 yen.
57,000 yen was a good deal for a 5646 Grand Seiko. The case had scratches, but it looked like it had never been polished and the dial looked clean.
For the golf fans, here’s one of those Marvel golf themed pocketwatches. Pretty neat. 14,000 yen.
Simple and clean mil style kinetic. 8,750.
This one is rare. Like Seiko, Citizen also released watches with artwork on the dial. This one had a nice 23j Hi-Line movement inside. 31,000 yen.
This 45KS was very crisp and its excellent condition was reflected in the bidding. 80,000 yen.
How about this “Diamond Flake” Citizen? One of my favorites of the bunch. Take a look at that movement too. Very clean! 17,289 yen and worth it.
We’ll end the Yahoo! listings with this 2002 Fifa World Cup edition of a 9T82. Selling price was 131,000 yen. I’ve seen them go for considerably more.
I was surprised to see this next watch on eBay. It’s not common to see something like this even on Yahoo! Japan. It’s a rare Seiko Autodator. Very collectible watch. It sold for $564.00.
This one was cool. Maybe the neatest V2 Custom Seiko I’ve seen. Price was $85.00.
The “White On” watches from Seiko featured a floating LCD display which appeared on the crystal. They came in 3 variations. Here’s the red version. $139.00.
Casio fans will appreciate this one, others will just shake their heads in disbelief. The original DW-5500 G-Shock II is among the most collectible of G-Shocks. This one created a buzz in the community and was bid up to $2,025.00. It could be a long time before another example like this shows up.
Here’s a Museum of Japanese Watches book that was referenced by martback in his Library article. It sold for 99.00. Worth every penny if you ask me!
$6,800 is a large sum of money, but you don’t often see these large Seikosha Pilot watches. These are coveted both by Seiko and Military watch collectors and they always generate interest. The hands on this model were not the ones you usually see, but the auction still ran with considerable interest.
Although bid up to $610.00, this Seiko Liner Chronometer did not hit reserve. It’s an exceedingly hard watch to find.
Thats it. Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed the listings and thanks to Bryan, dima and martback for the help.
