VINTAGE SEIKO QUARTZ VS. VINTAGE ROLEX QUARTZ

You know how people say, “when pigs fly…” or “when hell freezes over…” well I’d like to add a third one: when vintage Grand Seiko costs 50K.

The watch industry and the tastes of the masses are ever so dynamic. That dynamism naturally leads to change, flux if you will, even unexpected. One of such changes is the rise of Seiko – not only in popularity but even in ‘prestige’. If you look around Instagram today, you’ll see that many pages once dedicated to the likes of Rolex, Patek, and AP – now also include a Grand Seiko, King Seiko, and maybe even a Lord Marvel!

Back in May, a Grand Seiko V.F.A. 6186-8000-G sold for a ridiculous, and yes, I mean ridiculous, 44,000 CHF! As someone who is passionately involved in the world of vintage Seikos both for myself and for Toronto Vintage Watches, there is no other word to describe my sentiment other than flabbergasted. I mean, have these people ever been on Yahoo Japan!?

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
