Here is an awesome and rare, all original King Seiko 56KS Hi-Beat from 1970. The silver sunburst dial is in excellent condition, with steel Seiko and KS logos and barely any marks. It has wide railroad track steel bar hour markers with black contrast stripes, double markers at 12 o’clock. The tapered dauphine hands with the characteristic black contrast stripes are in very fine condition. The steel framed window at 3 o’clock displays the quick-set date and weekdays in English and Kanji. Saturday and Sunday is in blue and red color while the rest of the week is in black. The quick-set function should only be used with the hour hand at the bottom half of the dial.


The stainless steel bezel is in fine condition with only light overall wear. The chunky stainless steel case with the original KS crown and embedded lugs is in very fine condition with only light overall wear. The stainless steel case back has a well preserved gold KS medallion and is in very fine condition with one notable scratch.


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


Inside the watch, Seiko’s high grade 5626A movement beats strongly and accurately to within about +-8 seconds per day. The watch was fully serviced in March 2024 and comes with a 12 month warranty on its proper mechanical functioning.


The KS and its “big brother” the Grand Seiko were made to show the world the prowess of Japanese watchmaking. They remain some of the most iconic and collectible vintage watches with an outstanding design and engineering quality. This very cool 56KS Hi-Beat is a fine example of that and it is a great conversation starter.


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.
