guide to vintage Grand Seiko watches

Post by koimaster » February 27th 2021, 1:15pm

The history of Grand Seiko begins in 1960 with the introduction of the Grand Seiko Chronometer, better known today as Grand Seiko First.

Between 1960 and the first half of the 1970s, numerous models were produced, which can be divided into seven different families, based on the movements. There are seven families, and not eight as we often hear, because the caliber 3180 (renamed 5720) and the 430 (renamed 5722) are actually part, according to Seiko’s official documentation, of the same family of movements.

Wow. Very comprehensive. Gonna need some time to absorb that one.

Lover the old GS models. The lineup was so simple and uncomplicated then. Just Seiko's idea of what the best watch is. I feel that's been lost a bit now. How can there be 4,000 types of best watch?

Reminds me, I reckon I didn't sell my King Seiko 45, and it must be lying around somewhere...
