THIS IS A 1000% BRAND NEW OLD STOCK SEIKO SPORTS 100 CHRONOGRAPH MODEL SPR017. VINTAGE SEIKO SPR017 SPORTS 100 CHRONOGRAPH 7A28-7049 , Brand New FROM THE 1980s. IT HAS THE LEGENDARY CALIBER 7A28 QUARTZ MOVEMENT WHICH HAS BEEN KNOWN TO LITERALLY RUN WITHOUT PROBLEMS OR NEEDING SERVICE FOR 30 to 35 YEARS.THESE MOVEMENTS WERE ESSENTIALLY DESIGNED TO BE BULLET PROOF. THE ERA OF THIS WATCH IS ABOUT 1983 TO 1984. THE CASE BACK IS INSCRIBED WITH THE FOLLOWING NUMBERS: 790074 AND ALONG THE OUTER EDGE OF CASEBACK IS THE MODEL # 7A28-7049.
IT HAS BEEN LOVINGLY OWNED BY A SINGLE COLLECTOR WHO BOUGHT IT NEW AT AN AUTOHORIZED SEIKO SHOP IN THE USA. THE BATTERY HAS BEEN MOSTLY KEPT OUT OF THE WATCH IN CASE OF BATTERY CORROSION EXCEPT WHEN IT WAS INSTALLED ONCE A MONTH TO RUN THE MOVEMENT AND CHRONOGRAPH FUNCTIONS FOR 72 HOURS TO KEEP THE MOVEMENT LUBRICATED AND EXERCISED. IT KEEPS ACCURATE TIME MEETING SEIKO SPECS AND ALL CHRONOGRAPH FUNCTIONS OPERATE PERFECTLY AS THEY SHOULD.
IN OTHER WORDS THE MOVEMENT IS IN PERFECT CONDITION AS IT CAME FROM THE FACTORY. THE NEW MODEL SEIKO CHRONOGRAPHS HAVE DISPOSABLE MOVEMENTS WITH MOSTLY PLASTIC GEARS AND FEW JEWELS WHEREAS THIS SEIKO LEGENDARY 7A28 MOVEMENT HAS METAL GEARS AND 15 JEWELS DESIGNED TO LAST DECADES, PERHAPS 50 YEARS.
So rather than a modular, disposable plastic movement, the 7a series had a proper, quasi-decorated 15 jewel metal movement that could be regulated, disassembled and repaired. It even has a very traditional finger damper spring on the centre seconds pinion. Seiko really threw investment, thinking and effort into this one. This explains why, despite often impressive abuse, so many survive.
