Manufactured in the 1960s~ King Seiko was considered as their top tier product and internal competitor of Grand Seiko. These top tier Seiko were created as the answer towards the Swiss Watch Industry and Seiko's bridge into the international market. With the ultra-accurate Chronometer rating movements that got Seiko a champion in the Swiss Chronometer Competition, a mirror-finished case with unique design and the master craftsman to build the durable timeless classic, these all add up to create the best vintage dress watch in Japan.
This 44-9990 KS was the first King Seiko model to adopt Seiko's Grammar of Design and the second King Seiko ever made by Seiko. The model has fitted with a unique case shape that helps define the fundamental design element for the future of King Seiko. The two-dimensional lug are carefully detailed so that all surfaces can join with each other by Seiko's craftsman, this generation of King Seiko is slightly bigger at 37mm with a mirror-finished case paired with the sword hand provide a clean yet sharp feeling to the watch. This 44King Seiko certainly brought inspiration to today's Grand Seiko series.
The watch was made even more collectable when you flip it over and find the case back fitted with a gold medallion with Seiko logo stamped on the back. The overall condition of the watch is Epic! These all add up to create one of the best-looking watches Seiko has ever made.
This specific 44 King Seiko have have some aging on the dial developed a evenly grey mist feeling on the dial. It added vintage feeling to the watch and it comes in all original acrylic crystal.
