Trimming down my collection since I've got a bit of the early vintage bug so I would like others to enjoy some watches I am wearing less.
Wifey asked me to get the process started in the new year, so here I go!Description: Credor Phoenix GCBP993 6S78-0A30 Automatic Chronograph (Strap Version, White Dial)Price: $1,380 shipped - Paypal with buyer responsible for tranaction feesCondition: Very good - lightly usedDimensions: approx. 39mm wide excluding crown; 47mm lug-lug; 20mm strap sizeWater Resistance: 10 BarAccessories: carbon fiber leather strap, signed Credor Box; no tag/papersNotes: This is beautiful Credor Phoenix 6S78-0A30 Automatic Chronograph is one of the watches that started me down the rabbit hole of JDM watches.
Of note this is the rare GCBP993 strap version as most of this series are sold with a custom bracelet without any extra links (which are impossible to find) and only sized for tiny wrists.
It houses the venerable Seiko 6S mechanical chronograph movement.
Crystal is gently domed sapphire and in perfect shape with antireflective coating.
Dial is a beautiful with a date window, two chronograph and one seconds subdial.
Lume markers are medium strength given age.
Chrono buttons working well and resets reliably to zero.
Case is in good shape with only very light scratches.
Screw-down crown decorated with a black jewel and no problems with time setting or date quickset.
Movement itself is great shape worthly of a display caseback but this model comes with a screw-down Credor Phoenix-signed caseback.
It is running maybe about 10 sec fast per day.
Currently paired with a 20mm Morellato double padded carbon fiber grain leather strap which wears very comfortably up to 8.5 inch wrist.
This is a top-of-the line Seiko JDM mechanical chronograph that houses 24 jewels and runs at 28800 bph.
Based on serial no. this watch dates to July 1999.
Those that know this series are aware that Seiko's 6S was the base technology behind the Tag Heuer "in house" Caliber 1887.
Comes with Credor signed box but no tag/papers.
Don't miss your chance on capturing this beauty!
