    Thanks, Artemis12. I shouldn't comment on an active TM listing outside of Watch Out, but a good place to start--to see what an authentic original looks like--would be here... https://www.timekeeper.co.nz/forum/w...7002-7000-1992

    The case, dial, and and hands could be original. It's harder to tell repro 7002 dials, compared to the 6309 dials. However, the factor that would push this one to the rubbish side is what the seller stated... "Crown does not screw in as has a stripped thread..."

    If the thread inside the crown is stripped, then that may still be rectified, but if the case crown thread is stripped, then this case goes into the rubbish bin. It is near worthless, and if I were the seller, I would sell only as "parts". If one is after a 7002-7000, there are still many genuine original out there, very much still within the realm of affordable for most people. It would be better to go for one of those.

    If one likes the look of the bezel insert mod, then the same could be done on later SKX007/9, though a word of warning that these are going up in value in original state.

      Great post as usual Don
      I definitely got this one completely wrong, especially after noticing the crown problem after my post. Read first, post later "lol" rather that the other way around personality i quite like the am bezel and strap. But the crown problem is a bummer. The forum is a great place to live and learn with out paying the lesson with your wallet

      Definitely not wrong to have asked ...A few followers of the 150m Diver 7002 on Timekeeper, and a couple of nice and tidy originals here too.

      Clicked the link and wished hadn’t. Some things can’t be unseen. Awful piece of shite.

      As an aside, given the crown tube is stated as being striped, it would be a decent option for a triplock conversion, I know there are a few Seikos kicking around with this mod. Don’t recall seeing a 7002 with one, but if I was to mod a Seiko, I’d do that conversion for a lark. Would have to be given the case for as near as nix as not a cheap mod.
Working...
