Here is a wonderful, all original King Seiko 44KS Chronometer from 1965. 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 small spots around the dial, most notable at around the 5 and 6 o’clock hour markers. The faceted dauphine hands are in very fine condition with a few small marks visible under magnification. The seconds hand has a fine arrow end. 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 light overall wear such as at 4, 9 and 11 o’clock. The stainless case with the original KS crown and long, heavy lugs is in fine condition with a few marks throughout, mainly at the lugs. The stainless steel case back has a well preserved gold Lion medallion and is in 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 4420A movement beats strongly and accurately to within about +-10 seconds per day. The watch was fully serviced in April 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. Even though all King Seikos are excellent watches, the added Chronometer moniker makes this 44KS really stand out.


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.
