The Seiko Lord Matic, the successor of Seiko's famous Lord Marvel Line. Most watch geeks may heard about the Lord Marvel 36000 fitted with the 5740C (36,000bph) movement in the Lord Marvel and its special place in the JDM market as the first pukka high beat watch.
Seiko issued the Lord Matic line hoping to continue the legacy of Lord Marvel. This is an extremely high expectation to a new line of watches, but thanks to the design genius in Seiko, they did it!
Seiko launched the Lord Matic line in 1968, fitting all LM models with a sophisticated 56 series movement and high-quality case design and finishing. The watch that used to be one notch below King Seiko line have taken off in market demand, and its movement, the 5605 have become one of the most ubiquitous Seiko mechanical movements of the time.
This special new movement has also formed the basis of higher beat variants fitted to many of the automatic King Seiko and Grand Seiko models of the early to mid-1970’s. So the success of 56 series King and Grand Seikos is thanks to the technical development of the Lord Matic 5605 movement.
Lord Matic are issued in many variances of dial and case configuration, this specific Lord Matic 5605-7001T we are offering is fitted with a silver linen dial and a multi-dimension lug with brush and glass finish. The design adopting the Seiko Grammer of Design and the case shape of the watch reminds us of the Grand Seiko back in the 70s. The watch is in almost a new old stock condition and is well preserved. The shine silver dial made a contrast with the black hour marker and hands.
