Introducing the Seiko Lord Marvel 36000, the watch that revolutionized the Japanese watchmaking industry back in the 1960s. It was the first true high beat movement in Japan, and the second in the world.
Vintage Seiko dress watches are known for their high finishing standards and technological advancements, and the Lord Marvel is no exception. Seiko decided to give the glory of the first high beat movement to Lord Marvel, despite Grand and King Seiko being the more well-known lines.
During the 60s, most watch movements beat at 18,000 beats per hour, but Seiko sought to build a high beat movement for higher accuracy. After Girard Perregaux came out with the first 10 beats per second movement, Seiko launched their manual winding caliber 5740C, the first 36,000 bph watch movement in Japan and the second in the world.
Seiko made a special decision to fit this special caliber into the Lord Marvel line, as the line has always been a technology challenger of the brand. This makes Lord Marvel the first Japanese watch to house a true high beat watch movement.
The technological breakthrough of caliber 5740 earned Seiko an important international reputation among watchmaking industries. It not only brought the brand closer to the international stage but also laid the foundation of the Hi-Beat Grand Seiko movement we see in the market today.
The Seiko Lord Marvel 36000 features a classic design that reflects the timeless elegance of the 1960s. The watch has a stainless steel case with a diameter of 37mm and a thickness of 12mm, making it a perfect fit for any wrist size. The silver dial is simple yet sophisticated, with silver-tone hands and hour markers. The watch is powered by the manual-winding caliber 5740C, which has a power reserve of around 40 hours.
The Seiko Lord Marvel 36000 is not just a watch, it's a piece of history that will make a perfect addition to any watch enthusiast's collection. Order yours today and experience the true high beat movement that revolutionized the Japanese watchmaking industry.
