From the first Grand Seiko in 1960 to the automatic chronograph in 1969, the sixties was a decade of significant advances in technical and design development that laid the foundation for Seiko’s future success in the prestige watch arena. Alongside Grand Seiko, one other series, in particular, demonstrated the company’s ability to create mechanical watches with high accuracy. It was called King Seiko, and, in addition to its precision, it offered a powerful yet graceful design that symbolized the high quality of its construction.

The limited-edition timepiece evokes the historic King Seiko KSK model from 1965, celebrating Seiko’s 140th anniversary. The re-imagined mechanical dress watch exhibits the same distinct yet graceful design elements as the original. The sharp, bold faceted lugs feature large flat planes and razor-sharp angles and are Zaratsu polished to a distortion-free mirror finish.

The combination of the flat dial with the faceted indexes and broad, sharp hands re-creates the refined elegance of the original 1965 KSK. The faceted and textured twelve o’clock index ensures high legibility.
The caseback carries the same emblem as the original. As proof of the limited edition, “Limited Edition” and the serial number are printed.
