Concept:

To many vintage Seiko watch collectors, the 62 Grand Seiko is one of the holy grail in the collection, however the heavy demand from the market means that the 62GS are all pricing at a heavy premium and is out of budget for many of us. Therefore it became our quest to source an alternative from the market for all of our dearest followers.


Seiko back in the 70s have a practice when working on movements of a watch, they will build a base movement and fine tune the base movement into higher accuracy movement for their higher end watches. We can find the 56 series base movements using in both Lord Matic and the higher accurate one used in King Seiko and Grand Seikos. The same principle applies to the 62 series movement too! After the search from the historical Seiko reference book and the market, we finally settle our target on the vintage Seikomatic series manufactured in the 60s where they are housing the base version of 62 series movement.

The 62 series movement used in the Seikomatic watches are gold finished, has an 18k bph vibration rate, and Diashock protection. The 6206 movement was housing a wide variance of Seikomatic watches, with wide selection of dial layout, case material, day wheel format etc. This is essentially the workhorse movement at the time for Seiko.

The 62 series movement will later work its way up to become one of the finest movements Seiko have ever manufactured housing in the 62 Grand Seiko.

I was attracted by this particular example of Seikomatic 6218 8970 because of the following reasons. 
The curved case lug of the watch case and sword hand resembles the design of the 6245 Grand Seiko, it was not as aggressive as the design of the 56King Seiko but design was clean and unique in the Seiko family.
  
The design of the dial was clean yet able to fit in so much information into the display (Time, Date, Full Day). 

The dial was preserved nicely with no sign of aging found, it's amazing to see watch preserved in such a nice condition.

With its clean design, Seikomatic was used to target the young businessmans sector, where they are targeted to pair with suits and worn to office daily.

With its timeless design, we are confident that it will be able to continue its mission to pair with your suit flawlessly for the next decades to come.
