SOLD: SEIKO Automatic Diver 7002-7039 Transitional Diver

Up for sale is a SEIKO Automatic Diver 7002-7039, also known as "the Transitional Diver". If I recall correctly, this is the first SEIKO Automatic Diver to be rated at 200m. The Transitional Divers were produced in very short period between 1995 and 1996, just before SEIKO released the 7S26 Diver (SKX series) in 1996. Therefore, it is harder to find and probably will become collectible item because it marks the transition from SEIKO 150m Diver to 200m Diver.

Production date: July 1995.
Case dimension:
  • Width: 42 mm (excludes crown).
  • Thickness: 13 mm.
  • Lug: 22 mm.
As far as I know, all original parts.
Original dial and hands in good condition. Lumes on index markers and hands still glow.
Bezel rotates uni-directionally with 120 clicks. Bezel clicks firmly without play.
Original bezel insert is in good condition.
Original crystal is in good condition and untouched, has fine scratches but not very noticeable.
Case and case back are in good condition and unpolished. There are swirls and fine scratches due to normal wear but no serious dents. Edges and corners are still well-defined. Factory finish lines are still visible on the top surface of the case.
Movement and date setting mechanism are working well. Previous owner sent this watch to Jack Alexyon IWW for service (tuning, lubrication, and calibration). But I do not know when exactly is the date. Accuracy is within spec.
Crown locks in 1.75x full turn.
Water resistant is unknown.
Comes with high-quality aftermarket GL831 vintage rubber strap for SEIKO Diver and new fat spring bars.
Price: SOLD.
