FS: Very rare SEIKO RAF Gen. 1 7A28-7120 quartz military

Hi, due large collection reduction for sale a rare Military assigned Quartz chrono SEIKO RAF Gen. 1, reference 7A28-7120, one of first of a total 11,307 samples!!!
This is a Japanese quartz chronograph, launched in 1984, used by Royal Air Force until 1990. Quartz movement module 7A28.
The case is brushed stainless steel, without bumps, dings, shows little signs of age and use, hard to see. (see pictures). Diameter is 37 mm circa.
Back cover is stainless steel with reference 7A28-7120 - SEIKO STAINLESS STEEL – WATER RESISTANT – JAPAN S and Suwa symbol.
Then 6645 – 99 – 7683056 (NATO reference number indicates chrono RAF Pilot) – the broad arrow symbol – 0232/84 (militar serial number and year 1984) – 481096 (Seiko serial number, dates August 1984)
Mineral glass perfect.
Dial is original, wonderful, without any sign, any humidity trace.

This wristwatch is in amazing condition, functioning perfectly, keeps good time, chrono functions (included 1/10th second) works as should. I don't know anything about its water proof, so I don't encourage to take a bath or swim with it unless a proper test.
I am a collector, not a commercial seller, so I cannot give any guarantee except as described.
Please look carefully pictures. Wristwatch as far as I know is fully functional and keeps good time. Remember it is a wristwatch of more 30 years ago.

For this rare SEIKO RAF Gen 1 I reduced the price, ask 1050€ (paypal friends/family, or normal Paypal add 5%, or bank transfer) shipping included. Seiko is located here in Italy. Due recent bad experience I cannot ship in Brazil, sorry.
I will not responsible of custom charges, lost in trasport (if you wish ensured shipping or DHL please ask)

I am "asquinet" on ebay and on many wristwatches forum. Feel free to ask any further picts or info.
