THE LASTING DESIGN VALUES OF 1965. THE TECHNOLOGY AND ENGINEERING OF TODAY.
The 1965 KSK, the design that defined King Seiko.
The five new watches share a distinctively sharp and angular design that is inspired by the 1965 King Seiko KSK, which was the second series to be created and the one that defined the character of King Seiko. The combination of a flat dial with faceted indexes and broad, razor-edged hands gives the watch a refined and striking presence. The bold, faceted lugs have sharp angles and wide flat surfaces that feature both mirror and hairline finishing, creating a sense of precision. The twelve o’clock index is more than twice the width of the others and has a patterned texture specially crafted to ensure high legibility and to give the dial a bright sparkle that invites the eye.
The new creations present a classic yet modern profile inspired by the 1965 KSK.
The case is constructed so that, combined with the boxed-shaped sapphire crystal, it gives each watch a slim and elegant feel. An anti-reflective coating on the inner surface of the crystal delivers high legibility from any angle. The bracelet pays homage to the design of the original King Seiko series and its many beveled surfaces reflect the light in a way that is dynamic and ever-changing. Powered by Caliber 6R31, the watch delivers a power reserve of 70 hours and is water resistant to 100 meters.
