King Seiko 2nd generation

King Seiko 2nd generation

SKU: VWS-1666

Here is a fantastic, all original 2nd generation King Seiko from 1968. The silver sunburst dial is in excellent condition, with a steel Seiko logo and the script KS logo below its center. It has faceted steel hour markers, double at 12 o’clock. There are a few tiny spots around the center of the dial, all of which are difficult to see with the naked eye. The faceted dauphine hands are in very fine condition. The steel framed window at 3 o’clock displays the quick-set date. The quick-set should only be used with the hands at the bottom half of the dial.


The stainless steel bezel is in very fine condition with light overall wear. The stainless steel case with the original crown and chunky, faceted lugs is in fine condition with some overall wear, perhaps most notable at the upper left and lower right lugs. The stainless steel case back has a well preserved gold shield KS medallion and is in very fine condition.


The watch comes on an after market leather strap of good quality.


Inside the watch, Seiko’s high grade 4402A King Seiko movement beats strongly and accurately to within about +-10 seconds per day. The watch was fully serviced in March 2022 and comes with a 12 month warranty on its proper mechanical functioning.


The King Seiko has it all; fantastic engineering, timeless design and high collectability. The wonderful overall condition of this watch makes it a great daily driver that is also suitable for more formal occasions.



Our watches are delivered in a luxury wooden watch box, fully serviced with a 12 month warranty that covers the mechanical functioning of the watch under normal use. We offer 14 days full return rights and are very proud of our reputation for outstanding customer satisfaction.
