Seiko 7002

Post by Watch Noob » January 29th 2021, 2:30pm

So my recent outbursts of late have kept me away from Seiko due to their skyrocketing pricing.
There's more than one way to skin a cat as they say. So I went fishing in the Bay and snagged a 7002-7000 diver. Recently serviced as the date on the inside of the caseback indicates 12-22-20. Overall I'm pretty pleased with the purchase. Yes, I've already had it apart to try and clean what I though was streaks on the inside of the crystal, but it appears that it's wear and tear on the outside, hardly noticeable but in the right sunlight it fucks with my OCD on watches.

For those not familiar, this model is succeeds my 6309 and is a predecessor to my SKX. Overall same dimensions as the SKX and I believe most parts are interchangeable. Not sure why that change to SKX when both movements are non hackable and non winding. The date code on this one suggests a born on date of Oct. '94.

That's a great looking 7002, Noob. For some reason the 6309 is adored but the 7002 is unappreciated. At least that's the way it was a few years back.

Main difference between the 7Sxx and 7002 is the 7002 has a metal date wheel. I think later 7002s also had metal intermediate date wheels (not 100% on this). My watchmaker said the 7002 is a better movement than the 7Sxx.
