This forum is for BUYING, SELLING and TRADING only--not for discussing watches. Please limit postings to specific ads for buying, selling or trading watches, parts or accessories that that match at least one of the following categories:

Please see our ChronoTrader Policies and Terms of Use. Learn more about How To Include Photos In Your Postings.

Rules: Postings must be an ad announcing an intent to sell, buy or trade. Full item description and photo(s) must be posted within the message here, not as links to other websites. Links to online auctions and other sites: Links to online auctions, dealer sites or other listings of items are permitted, but you should be careful to ensure that such listings will comply with our other ChronoTrader Policies. In addition, we request that sellers linking to online auctions or listings offer some benefit or accomodation to ChronoTrader readers (for example, some discount or an undertaking to end an auction early, to keep a watch "in the family"). Photos must be of the actual item for sale in its present condition. No counterfeit or replica products. No post for the same item may be repeated within 7 days, except to lower the asking price. Commercial dealers are limited to three unique posts per day. [More...]

FS: Seiko 6306-7001 Scubapro 450

Brand: Seiko

Model: 6306-7001 Scubapro 450

Year: 1970s-1980s

Condition: Good

Movement: Automatic Seiko. Hacking and running well

Case: Stainless Steel (40mm) in good condition but has been slightly polished in the past

Crystal: Mineral crystal in very good condition as seen on the photos

Bezel: All original turning both sides. Clicks as it should but looser than other examples I have handle. I would assume this can be fixed by changing the retaining ring

Crown: Original screw down crown with 3-4 finger rolls on it

Dial and hands: Dial is 100% original and absolutely stunning. The best I have seen. Markers have turned into a light cream and there are no spots on it. Hands are either a replacement or have aged differently, not uncommon for these models. But all original as far as I can tell.

Brecelet: Not included, head only

Up for sale, its my iconic Seiko 6306-7001 Scubapro 450. Only around 1000 of these watches were made for the Japan market only. Rarely you will see one for sale and most are traded in the Far East. So this is a great chance to own one.

As expressed above, this unit its not pristine but the dial is really impressive and could be a very nice daily wearer.

Price for this unit and reflecting its condition is 3.000 euros or near offer, which includes shipping through the mainstream carriers (DHL or EMS). Should you wish Fedex or UPS, this can be arranged at corresponding delta cost.

Similar examples have been running between 4k and 5k, so I have adjusted my asking price to reflect the bezel and case status.

Bankwire payment preferred, though I can accept Paypal as well in specific conditions and will split fees.

I will also grant a 3 days inspection period. If not as described, watch can be returned in same condition and at buyer´s expense. For this reason I would prefer a deal within the EU. For other places, sale is final due to potential Customs constraints. Watch and myself are located in Spain.

This watch its part of my collection and do have plenty of references worldwide which can be provided upon request. Buy with full confidence.

And here a couple of pictures of the watch. If you would need any further pictures or should have queries, please just ask, will be more than happy to help.

Thanks in advance for looking and Chronotrader for the space.
