Seiko's Quartz Chronograph was delivered to the Royal Air Force ( Royal Air Force / RAF) and adopted by the Royal Air Force ( Royal Air Force / RAF). There is a model that has been.

The chronograph equipped with Cal.7A28 was delivered from 1984 to 1990.
Generation 1 ( 1st generation) is an abbreviation for Gen1.

The successor model equipped with this Cal.7 T27 was delivered from 1993 to 1997, and is called Gen2, which is an abbreviation for Generation 2 (2nd generation).

The one that was actually delivered to the military and used has a broad arrow mark and a military code engraved on the back cover, but since this individual is a so-called "commercial item" that was sold to the general public. The back cover contains only the usual engraving.

It is a design that is not too rugged while having robustness and visibility that clears the specifications required by the British Ministry of Defense.

Therefore, although it is a military watch, it is a watch that also fits a leather belt.

The case size is 38mm, which is a small size for a chronograph. This size isn't quite there.

The case is sandblasted (pear-skinned) to give it a matte texture.

The dial is a black dial with a sandblast finish similar to the case to suppress light reflection.

The P mark under

SEIKO indicates that the luminous paint uses promethium.

Promethium is a luminous paint used by Seiko from the 1960s after radium until it was replaced by Luminova.

It has properties similar to tritium, but has a shorter half-life than tritium.

A 30-minute counter is laid out at 12 o'clock, a small second (second hand) is laid out at 6 o'clock, and a 24-hour counter is laid out at 9 o'clock.

Because it is a quartz movement, it is a good point that you can use it without hesitation compared to a mechanical chronograph.

Also, the thickness of the watch is suppressed and the weight is not so heavy, so it is recommended for everyday use. The

strap is a NATO strap from Singapore's STRA Space brand.

It is a design that can be said to be a NATO strap with the ruggedness removed because it is slightly glossy and has a herringbone pattern.

About Service
Service(Overhaul) is the process of disassembling a mechanical product down to its component parts, cleaning, and reassembling it to bring it back to the state of performance when it was new.

The overhaul procedure is roughly explained as follows
Separate the case and movement.
Disassemble the movement
Inspect each part for wear and tear and perform a preliminary cleaning.
Cleaning by a special machine
Lubrication and assembly
6. Water-resistance inspection (water-resistance function guaranteed)
7. Adjustment and running test
This is the process of the watchmaking process.

Some movements consist of several hundred parts, which are disassembled piece by piece, inspected, cleaned, and reassembled in an extremely precise process.

Without overhaul, just like a car, the oil deteriorates and the risk of wear and tear on the parts increases, causing a loss of precision or, in serious cases, the inability to run.

We recommend an overhaul every two to three years to ensure economical and long-lasting use of your watch.

About new finishing (polishing)

Vintage watches have been used for decades, and even the stainless steel used in many watches has become rounded at the corners, or has many small scratches on the surface that should be beautiful with a mirror finish.

At Albitro, we believe that our watches should be purchased in beautiful condition and used for a long time, so we sell them with a new finish.

Especially for dress watches with gold cases, we finish them to bring out the best of the precious metal case.

The watches sold at Albitro that have been newly finished are photographed in very high resolution, so you can see the edges are sharp and the mirror finish reflects the light.

Some cases and bracelets have a mixture of mirror and hairline finishes, but not many craftsmen are able to distinguish between them and finish them at a high level.

The "thinning of the case" is another area that is highly dependent on the skill of the craftsman. A watch with skinny lugs is far from its original design, and its appearance is unbalanced.

It is a very meticulous process to reduce the thinness of the case as much as possible while eliminating scratches and dents to bring the watch closer to its original finish.

Of course, in some cases, it is better to leave the watch in its original condition as it is, as it is the history of the watch and the original condition is important.

We look at each watch individually and decide whether it is best to finish it before selling it.
