    I've been looking for a relatively cheap but interesting chronograph. The Seiko 7a28 quartz movement from the early 80's has a good following and I picked up this 7a28-701a.

    It's one of four color variations. JDM so you gotta buy it from Japan. Two of the newer variations have a model number that starts with AT_____ for some reason.

    39mm case, 45mm lug to lug, 12mm thick, great quick adjust clasp on the bracelet. Only downside is the radio control only works with the Japanese signal.

    Sakura has all four in stock :: https://www.sakurawatches.com/search...omaster%20Land

    Selling a few of my brand-new and never-worn watches. All still have the majority of the factory warranty and come with boxes, papers, etc.

    I would rather these go to people here and give the buyer a discount as well as a donation to VSalon, than have them go to strangers on eBay.
    (they are all listed on eBay at below current market prices - full details in the eBay listings: https://www.ebay.com/usr/open-4-sale)

    DM me here if interested.

    These are listed now but I will be adding more during the next few weeks.

    Thanks for the info. IMO that makes it not quite as desirable.

    Yeah, but it's quartz, so it's pretty accurate without syncing every night. I use the ClockWave app on my phone to sync it a few times a year.

    I had never heard of Stocker & Yale until CountyComm (maker of my favorite Maratac watch) posted some NOS SandY 590 cases a couple of years ago (fun fact: SandY = Stocker and Yale). I have an interest in military issues watches and had a Marathon General PurposeMechanical Limited Edition watch a few years back (w/NOS Benrus movement).

    Stocker & Yale was a local company, Beverly, MA and Salem, NH, so that piqued my interest. Stocker & Yale was a major innovator and supplied some of the most rugged and collectable examples of the MIL-W-46374 specification in its two-decade history (early 1980s – early 2000s). They made both manual wind (184, 490, 650) and quartz versions (590, 660), though I had my heart set on a quartz model. As luck would have it, I recently found an NOS example in Japan! Possibly it belonged to someone who was stationed there?!

    I’m a bit perplexed as the box states “SANDY 595 MIL-W-46374-TYPE 3” and the back of the watch states “MIL-M-1951946 SANDY 184”. I’ve seen other SandY watches with 55595 (stamped) markings where they were referred to as prototypes. Mine is stamped 184 so don't think that's the case. I have found a few exact same watches on Instagram (even with the round lume markers, which seem to be less common than the triangle version) so might reach out to them for some information. This post has the same watch and box, though the company location is printed. The box on mine has a sticker with the Salem, NH address but the Beverly, MA address can be seen underneath the decal. If any of you watch afficionados have any info, let me know! Either way, I really dig it! Like my Maratac, it features a sterile clean dial with no branding or date. Score!

    Very cool find. I wonder how high this sits on the wrist since there is a prominent bulge on the caseback plus the strap running on top of that?

    Do we need a clock wave app if our cell phones and computers with time clocks are already sync'd with sats?

    The app just creates a radio signal that the watch can 'listen' to and set itself. But yeah, you could certainly set it manually like any other quartz watch. But it's kinda nice to just press a button and let it do it itself.
