Hello GMT+9 readers. Lots of items here on this latest watchlist. A quick note for everyone before we get started. GMT+9 contributor martback has graciously compliled a list of past GMT+9 auction watchlist subjects in an excel spreadsheet. I haven’t figured out a way to get this spreadsheet linked to the GMT+9 website yet, but until I do, anyone interested in the file can send me an email and I’ll pass it on.
The beautiful Orient pictured above went for 21,230 yen. It’s the first time I’ve seen this model. I think the dial is great.
This bright and colorful 7A Surftimer did not meet it’s opening bid of 79,800 yen.
Here’s a 6810 SCVL001 Credor that didn’t hit it’s 100,000 yen reserve.
My guess is that this is a redial, otherwise, I’d have expected this Mystery Dial Seiko to sell for considerably more than its 36,000 yen ending price.
Although not especially rare, these little Supers are hard to find in such clean shape. 18,000 yen.
Regular eBay surfers have undoubtedly come across the “Senior Gas” Seiko lighters. This is the first one I’ve seen with it’s original packaging. 6,500 yen.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen this sporty version of a 6M26. 26,500 yen.
Here’s my favorite of the bunch. A 560 Caliber Crown Railroad Seiko. One day I’d like to own one of these. They are not easy to find.
Strong price of 43,100 yen for a great 30M Sportsmatic Silverwave. These silver dialed versions seem hard to find in good condition compared to their black dialed brothers.
The condition of this 5246 King Seiko no doubt contributed to the 70,000 yen selling price. Lots of bids on this one.
You can get your kids started early in spelling and Seiko collecting with these fun Seiko blocks. 3,000 yen.
Although not talked about on the collecting boards as much as they used to be, this 4S15 Alpinist still received a lot of bidding interest. 76,000 yen.
While the dial looks fantastic, the GS Medalion on the caseback of this 6156 GS Special was flaking apart. No doubt, that is why the price was a low 45,100 yen.
Even though it’s not as collectible as its big brother 7A38 Vulcan, this 7A28 version still sold for a healthy 33,500 yen.
Check out the unique Zodiac dial on this Seiko Unique! 26,100 yen.
A friend picked up this S800 diver for 11,200 yen. Great deal!
You don’t see these Radio Controlled Solar Seikos from the Moving Design collection discussed much. This one sold for 24,555 yen.
Moving on to eBay, lets start with this A239 Worldtime LCD. I always thought this would be a cool watch to reissue. Fantastic dial. $155.20.
Although not a particularly notable watch, I thought the lume shot on this Sportura was well done. Didn’t meet it’s 600.00 BIN.
Check out this GS. I think this is the first time I’ve seen a picture of the 8J55 movement. $837.00.
This Casio Alti-Depth meter model is sometimes branded as an old Oceanus. This is the non “Oceanus” dialed version. $99.99.
Oh my! Look at the dial on this one. Is it a map dial or just a trashed old Champion? $40.99.
$213.50 for this well worn example of a Kinetic Pipin Marinemaster.
Those of you who collect old Citizen divers know just how rare these 150M bezels are. This one sold for $42.69. Had it gone for twice as much, I would not have been surprised. These are impossible to find.
Nice old Seiko Stopwatch in its original box. $42.69.
This eco-duo Citizen has a movement that’s both solar and kinetic powered. $173.50.
$230.50 for a great looking 3823 VFA Quartz Seiko.
Last watch of the list is a Citizen Superjet Autodater. $172.50.
