I've aquired a nice little watch, namely the Seiko 7s28 0120. I believe it is an S wave, however I cant seem to find anymore info about it.  I was toying with the idea of taking it apart to mod, but its kind of growing on me.

I'm not sure the history of the S wave, was it a failed experiment?

Any forumites with experience of these?

Well, maybe not worthless, but much less fun.

The S-Wave (Sport Wave?) was a 1990's 7S26 calibre sports watch - a colourful Seiko 5 with different branding basically.

Japanese market only (Europe got the Helmet case but without the S-Wave branding). Released in classic round case, Helmet case, TV case and Square case.
Tons of colour options, the red, black and blue ones are pretty common, yellow is seen a fair bit as well. The green models are orange models command a premium.

Here's a link - not much info but some superb pictures;

They also released a chronograph model which flopped spectacularly. V657 calibre movement and again, several colour options for the dial and an aluminium bezel.
Ultra rare, but not at all expensive - the last couple I've had haven't cost me much more than £50 a time and brought about the same when I sold them again.
