    You're correct in thinking it's related, this one is a 7025-8099 which replaced the earlier 7005-8052. The 7005-8140 was based on the 8052 but as far as I know that reference is only found on the military marked examples. They were pseudo divers really only being water resistant to 70m and they're often called the poor mans 62mas due to the resemblance to Seiko's first proper diver.

    Thank you. I didn't know that. I do know, however, that it's an excellent watch.

    Thanks - when I get a minute I think I'll fine tune some Ebay searches.

    Here is my 007. It was tied up with cooking rope to boil the strap in the correct shape. Then I dropped it in a glass of cold water to fix the shape. I kept the strap on the watch to make it easier to get the right curve.

    I have quite a collection of Seiko's old and modern.

    This King Seiko Vanac is one of my favourite oldies...

    Some really gorgeous watches on show here.

    One thing that would make me wary about Seiko are the bewildering number of different models out there. Add in that modding is popular with Seiko aficionados never mind and outright fakery and frankens from the dubious and it becomes a daunting prospect for a newbie looking for a good vintage one. Lotsa research required I'd imagine.

    Indeed.

  11. #111
    The diversity of Seiko amazes me. I currently have over 30 Seiko's of all price ranges. I sometimes feel I should concentrate on divers, or chronometers, GS, KS, 1960's, 1970's, - - modern. But I can't bring it down to a narrow specialisation. That would mean selling others, and resisting the temptation to buy more as they come up. Nope, I'll just keep buying any I see that I like. - I'm beyond hope you see.

    I always used to pick up any Seiko's I found at boot sales, markets etc for a few quid and ended up with quite a few but some sellers nowadays have a bit of an inflated view of what they can get for very ordinary models.

    Here's another pic with some more....

    There two at the moment:


    and my father's Seiko:


    restored a few years ago so now is in almost like new condition.

    Used to have all the variations of SKX007 and 009 from time to time, J versions, oyster bracelet, etc. I'm very tempted for a 009 again, but it is very possible to spend the money on some other Seiko divers model.

    Seiko Sarb 035.

    Lovely watch but not worn much these days because I tend to wear my Speedy everyday and I'm really a one watch guy. This, and some of the others in my collection will be going on Sales Corner as soon as I have access next month.

    Here's a better photo of my Seiko Chrono; this is one of my favourites and won't ever be sold. I've had it at least 5 years, and only needed a replacement battery this week.

    Hard to better, even though, and I don't know why, I find it a bit dull:



    Need to do something about the strap length

    Unless it's a cashflow thing, and you're a chrono man, upgrade your SARB to an Ananta close to GS quality and made by the same hands.
    As the line is rumoured to being phased out (was only ever destined to be experimental, supposedly), now's as good a time as any to get one.

    Veet (formerly Immac) may be useful. If it doesn't do anything to the strap, it'll sort the rug out underneath it!

    Yep, I'd like one of those but can't help thinking it might be nicer with bigger minute indices on the bezel.

    As discussed elsewhere, all the interesting Anantas have already been discontinued imo.

    I don't have an Ananta but the SARB and Ananta seems to fulfil different niches to my mind.

    New arrival only today.. came while I was out working. Along with another piece which I am sitting pretty on which I love, which I will be collecting tomorrow.


    Tuna SBBN017.

    Came from the USA, the guy put in an array of straps, and as I am not a rubber dive-strap lover, I shoved it on the nice kevlar he put in. It also came fully boxed and papered... a fantastic deal!













    I missed having one of these around, I have learned that the watches that you originally pine after are the watches that you usually regret letting go. I have been an admirer of watches for a decent amount of time, and thought that flipping off some to chase something else was a good thing... and then I have realised that my mind is pretty much made up. The watches I wanted, then let go, are the watches that I still want. My mind is pretty much made up. With certain exceptions.

    I like the same watches as I did years ago. And simply pine for the same ones back.

    I have re-collected a UFO, and today, got this Tuna back in.

    Also, somewhere else in Yorkshire, I had a piece delivered by hand which I have always yearned for too.


    Happy days.


    Greg.

    Love seiko, so much for your money. I currently own a sarb023 which I love but there have been a lot of others, some of them pictured...


    This is my perfect summer watch :)

    The sold ones...










    The 6105 is my biggest regret, almost perfect condition. Had another one later but was not half as nice...

    Scratch that. The more I look at it the nicer the bezel looks.

    A somewhat sobering exercise cataloging this lot but here's my current bunch, minus a few. I've mostly organised these according to age, starting first with my year of birth:

    1964




    1966




    1968 and 1969




    1970




    1972 to 1975




    1977




    One recent fettle and three waiting in the wings




    and finishing off with a couple of mods

    That's a fine collection. I really like that 6105 / MKII mod by the way.

    Some beautiful pics on here of lovely watches. Sadly my photography skills are not up to much, so I specialise in video demonstrations of the functions of my watches. Here are my other Seikos.

    Really nice! I was just thinking that this excellent thread was a little bit diver- and chrono-heavy (aside from one or two group photos). A well balanced collection - and all in great condition too.

  34. #134
    St. I'm going to have to buy another watch. Loving this thread. I've been eyeing up the skx007 for months now, I think I'll have to pull the trigger.

    Me too - I have a serious need for a diver now, after reading this thread. I don't think I will be able to stay away from the WTB forum. This site is doing my bank account no favours :|

    If you're referring to the beautiful and iconic case the first wave of Anantas were fitted to, then yes, but that doesn't mean there's none floating about NOS or pre-owned so I don't really get the point of your comment.

    In respect to SARB and Ananta being different, again, yes, but totally skipping over the point I made, within the context of the reply to the other member's remark about only wearing his Speedy now hence the qualifier that if he was a chrono person, then the Ananta might hold some draw for a few reasons.

    Seriously Mark, how'd you fail to see that?

    In a thread like this one that has several comments each with slightly different contexts, there can be many aspects on which anyone can add a comment. I commented in a way that made sense to me but which may have been orthogonal to the key points you were making. 'Cross purposes', and so on. :-)

    Couple of nice Kinetics, and an Octagon.

    One of the Kinetics has to go I'm afraid, the black one!

    I have a lot of sympathy for your views on mods, apart of course when they're mine! As for one of the examples appearing at the end of my contribution above, I omitted to show what was sitting stage right:



    6 years after buying the watch which started it all for me, and having modified it to rid it of an execrable aftermarket (fake) 6105 dial, I have finally tracked down a half decent original dial which I now plan to use to revert this particular watch to a state more closely resembling how it would have been originally.

    Skx007 is gone, traded for a citizen ny0040. Tuna is a keeper. The solar chrono I can't make my mind up on, I just can't find a strap that suits it.
    I'm struggling to not buy the golden tuna that's been tapping me on the shoulder on SC......
