-Description

The first model of the Grand Seiko was born with the determination to "manufacture the world's finest wristwatch", and with all the component precision, assembly technology and adjustment techniques of Seiko.

Its catchphrase is "Accurate and matchless, a watch you'll be proud to own for a lifetime".

It is a very standard, complete design that does not feel old-fashioned at all. It is also one of the watches that embodies the design code called "Seiko style".

The caseback has a lion's mark medallion.The design of lion medalion shows later type caseback.

The feature of the later model is that the mane of the lion mark is smooth.

The Grand Seiko logo below 12 o'clock on the dial is applied. It is also called "raised logo dial" 

This is a feature seen in models produced after the latter half of 1961, and is the most popular dial among Grand Seiko First.

This example was produced in May 1962 and is a mid to late model with the raised logo dial.

It should be noted that the condition of the case, back cover, and dial are all in top condition.

It cannot be enough to say that it is in the best condition among the Grand Seiko Firsts we have sold so far.

The star-shaped mark above 6 o'clock represents the SD dial (Special Dial) and is only printed on watches with 14K or 18K gold indexes.

The dial code is GSJ14H156E-SD

The movement is a manual-wound Cal.3180.
This Suwa Seikosha movement which was developed for the Grand Seiko based on the “Crown".

This watch was purchased from Mr. Yoshihiko Honda a.k.a BQ(@bqwatch) who is leading expert of vintage seiko.

All components and authenticity are checked by him as well.

The watch has been complete serviced by our watchmaker before listing.
