Kings cross in Sydney proved interesting with an A714 , rainbow lcd , scratched crystal and thee most stretched metal bracelet I've ever seen !!

$75 Aus - It's still there if your passing by .....

Didn't take pictures , sorry :(

There was also a heavily over priced 7S26 automatic there. It was nice though to find them

Last week in Perth I found a guy who used to work at Seiko WA. He had an all original H558 but it wasent for sale

Tuesday night was spent drinking beers on the porch of Chargers house, talking about erm.... watches!

I was privileged to see some of his collection and work centre , although LEDS are not really my thing, it was really cool to see him sporting his Syncronar .

Thanks Andrew, had a great time and it was a pleasure to finally meet

Earlier that day I hooked up with another guy who I had helped in finding the digital watches he had always wanted. I had spent a lot of time chatting via emails it was great to finally meet in person. He took me to the Seiko centre where I was allowed to pose for a quality photo

final resting point of the trip. Any guesses?

apparently there is a street in Bombay where lots of used / 3nd hand stuff is. I've still gotta do some research but if anyone has some spare time to do some recon I'd love to hear it

Must be somewhere fairly civilised otherwise you wouldn't dare to leave your tuna and your pocket money on the balcony while you take a paddle and chat up the lady in the shorts ;-)

Pali Mumbai would be my guess.

Or Seaton Carew.

Well you guys were pretty close

I was on Cherai Beach in Kerela. I've found a lot of automatic Seikos in India, mainly 7002 and 6309 series but they are all the unwanted models , no divers or Digitals alas :(

My last 2 days are here in Mumbai ( Bombay ) where I had good hopes of finding something. I didn't expect anything amazing but some results were fun to find
