Here is a wonderful all original 2nd generation King Seiko from 1967. The silver sunburst dial is in excellent condition, with a steel Seiko logo and the script KS logo below the dial center. It has faceted steel hour markers, double at 12 o’clock. The faceted dauphine hands are in fine condition with a few marks visible under close inspection. 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 fine condition with light overall wear, perhaps most pronounced at around 8 and 10 o’clock. The stainless steel case with the original crown and heavy, faceted lugs is in fine condition with some overall wear, mostly towards the lugs but also on the right case side. The stainless steel case back has a well preserved gold shield KS medallion and is in very fine condition with light overall wear.


The watch comes on an after market leather strap and buckle 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 December 2023 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.


NB! Note that we are based in Switzerland and that the buyer is responsible for any import fees their country may impose on a purchase from abroad. Ask us if you have any questions.
