A beautiful example of the second series of Grand Seiko, the 57GS aka the "self dater". This particular watch is a second iteration example from circa 1965 powered by the 5722A movement.
This example is in wonderful condition, with both the dial, case and movement in fantastic condition. As an added bonus it also comes with a Seiko strap and original buckle!
Outside of Japan Grand Seiko is still a relatively under-appreciated brand. However with Grand Seiko launching internationally in 2010 and Seiko announcing in 2017 that Grand Seiko would become an entirely separate brand, we suspect this wont last for long! For an interesting introduction to Grand Seiko we'd recommend a read of Rescapement's Vintage Grand Seiko: A Brief History
Just last week we were in Burlington Arcade in London where we noticed Grand Seiko is soon to launch their own store in what is arguably the most famous luxury shopping street in the world.
For those looking to add an example from this amazing brand you'd be hard to go far wrong with this stunning piece!
