This listing is for a civilian issue example of the 7T27-7A20 Seiko chronograph issued by the MoD to RAF and RN aircrew, and known as the'Gen 2' (being the second Seiko chronograph model procured by the MoD). This particular example is marked'L' on the dial to indicate Lumibrite luminous compound (rather than the more common'P' for promethium). The watch is in excellent condition - near to mint. The case and case back have only some very minor marks from use. The crystal is perfect, the dial and mint.

The watch is in full working order with all functions working correctly. The watch hacks and sets from the crown. The stopwatch stops and starts from the top right button and resets from the top left button. The date quickset works from the crown and automatically advances at midnight.

The 24 hour indicator (at the 9 postion) is correctly synched with main 12 hour register and date advance. The watch has just had a new Renata battery fitted and the case back gasket greased.

The watch is supplied on a new (non-original) 20mm NATO-style strap, and with a Seiko box in lively condition. The photographs form part of the description. If you are not familiar with the operation of the 7T27 movement I recommend downloading the instructions from one of several websites where it is available. Note that this is a vintage watch and although the seals are in place, waterproofing/water resistance has not been tested and cannot be guaranteed. This watch is considered suitable for normal day-to-day use, but as a precautionary measure I would not recommend it for use in sports activities, swimming etc.
