This is a legendary watch produced by Seiko according to their principles of design, which many iconic Seikos and Grand Seikos follow to this day. Sharp Dauphine hands with a slender silver seconds hand and polished raised baton indices, broken up by a framed date complication. This is a hi-beat movement - that is, 28,800 vph (or eight ticks per second) powered by the Seiko in-house calibre 5625 movement.
The watch keeps excellent time (I've noticed only a deviance of a few seconds per day using my timegrapher app), is hand-winding, and can hack too. The quick-set date function does not work - this is apparently a common issue with this movement, as the part in question was plastic I believe. Please note that the date clicks over once the watch goes past midnight as per usual, so you can set the date that way if you want as well.
Beautiful watch, with a few nicks and scratches that I've tried to capture in photos. Honestly, you barely notice them in sunlight, which is when the high polished angular lugs really come into their own.
Watch is 36mm wide, with an 18mm lug width. It will come with a quick-release 18mm milenese strap and an 18mm quick-release blue leather Geckota strap - I've been wearing it on both of those and find they complement the vintage aesthetics and subtle ivory/silver dial colour well. Dial is immaculate save for a small speck next to the King Seiko logo above the six o'clock baton.Does not come with original box or papers. Do get in touch if you have any questions or want more photos.
