I wanted to keep this lovely King Seiko (Daini) to accompany my other King Seiko (Suwa) but I have an incoming 6139 so I have to free up some funds.
It is this beautiful tropical King Seiko from October 1969. The watch is in fine, original condition. The case back still has the solid gold KS medallion. Crystal is scratch free. The crown is still the original KS one, the case has marks as you would expect but nothing major. Please study the photos.
Now a few words about the movement; the 4500A is a high beat (36,000 A/h) chronometer grade but not marked, no date manual wind movement (date would be the 4502 caliber) that Daini also used in their own Grand Seiko models. This is the last 36,000 movement as later ones were "only" 28,800 A/h. The watch runs and keeps time perfectly but I do not know its service history.
It's currently on a black nato strap.
I'd like to get €350 obro PayPaled as gift or BT to my german bank account. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
Thank you for reading!
