For sale is a Credor Phoenix GCBR997 (8L75-0A10) in immaculate condition.

For those unfamiliar, Credor is Seiko's JDM-only luxury brand (an intro to Credor). While many Credor models are exotic watches adorned with precious metal, the Phoenix line from the early 2000's was a rare series of "conventional" sport watches from the brand. The GCBR997 for sale here is the 3-hand variant with an inky black dial, with the integrated bracelet. The high-beat 8L75 automatic movement is a more refined version of the 8L35 found in the Marine Master, and from the 9S family of movements used in many Grand Seikos. Here are a couple of reviews that go into great detail on this Phoenix model:


Specs are as follows:
  • Case width: 38mm (w/o crown)
  • Lug to lug length: 45mm
  • Lug spacing: 18mm
  • Thickness: 12.5mm
  • Crystal: Sapphire
  • Movement: Seiko 8L75 automatic 28.8k bph
  • WR rating: 100 meters

The watch is in immaculate condition. There is very little sign of wear on the case and the bracelet, and only a little on the case back. The domed crystal is perfect. The movement is running well and keeping near perfect time. The crown screws down smoothly and securely. With all links in the bracelet, I measured the circumference to be 8 in. The watch comes with the box, but no papers.
