    Default Seiko Bond style, similar to Yellow "HMS Vulcan" type

    I've just seen this on Facebook for a shop on the Isle of Wight (he's a friend of an antique dealer that I was in the army with). I'm not connected to the seller, but I saw the link and thought someone may be interested (if only as a discussion piece) because of it's similarities to the Yellow HMS Vulcan Seiko and it's featuring in a Bond movie.

    a lot of us on here don't do social media and are thus unable to view.

    can someone please post a screenshot of the watch or post a direct link to the shop..

    What's HMS Vulcan? wasn't aware we had a boat named the Vulcan...or if it refers to the RAF jobbie..wasn't that debunked? The tale about a yellow watch being issued to the crew in the last year's of the bomber's service life?

    Frankly, I wouldn' mind getting a little farther than that. Just don't tell my wife of 47 years.

    Looks like a 7a38 rather than a 7a28. Watches with these movements are great buys in my opinion and can still be had for a fairly low price if you're not specifically looking for an issued piece.
