This Gen 2 has just been fully serviced by a renowned Seiko expert, so is good for many years.  Model reference 7T27-7A20.

HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?

From the serial number on the case back we can accurately date this watch to being made in November 1994.  The watch also has an issue date of 1995, and either year can be considered valid for a birth year watch

CONDITION

Gen 2 means this is the second generation of Seiko chronograph to be issued by the British Military.  The first is a favourite of ours, the 1983 Seiko 7A28-7120, and the Gen 2 moves the subdials, adds a date, and has the crown at 3.  The dial also has a P in a circle, and this shows the watch uses Promethium 147 for lume.  This material has a very short half life of just 2.62 years, so presents no potential danger to the health of the watchmaker any more, but does still have some glow (Tritium is 12.7 years, and radium 1,600 years for comparison!).  All functions including the quick set date date are working perfectly.  The 7T27 movement has just been fully serviced and the case had a new beveled glass, so this is ready to be enjoyed.  The case has light marks, and the nylon one piece strap is new, and could be swapped for a different colour if preferred.

This watch will be supplied with our branded presentation box and our Certificate of Authenticity.
