Here is a wonderful, all original King Seiko 44KS from 1968. The silver sunburst dial is in very fine condition, with a steel Seiko logo and faceted steel bar hour markers, double at 12 o’clock. There are a few marks around the dial, such as at around the 4 and 9 o’clock hour markers and a discolored spot at the 13 minute mark. The faceted dauphine hands are in fine condition. The hack stops the seconds hand when the crown is pulled out to set the time.

 

The stainless steel bezel is in fine condition with some overall wear, perhaps most prominent at around 7, 9 and 12 o’clock. The stainless case with the original KS crown and long, heavy lugs is in fine condition with some overall wear both at the lugs and on the case sides. The stainless steel case back has a well preserved gold Seiko medallion and is in very fine condition with a few marks. The case does not appear to ever have been polished.

 

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

 

Inside the watch, Seiko’s high grade 44A movement beats strongly and accurately to within about +-10 seconds per day. The watch was fully serviced in January 2024 and comes with a 12 month warranty on its proper mechanical functioning.

 

The 44KS is perhaps the clearest embodiment of Taro Tanaka’s “Grammar of Design” philosophy, with its flat surfaces allowing a lot of light to be reflected. This is a watch you will love to wear and admire on your wrist.

 

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.
