Introducing the Seiko Lord Marvel 36000, a watch that showcases Seiko's pioneering spirit in the world of high precision timekeeping. With the first true high beat movement in Japan and the second in the world, the Lord Marvel is a testament to Seiko's commitment to pushing the boundaries of watchmaking technology.
While Grand and King Seiko are often the first names that come to mind when it comes to vintage Seiko dress watches, the Lord Marvel deserves its place among these revered lines. Seiko chose to debut their groundbreaking 36,000 bph movement in the Lord Marvel line, known for its innovative spirit, and thus, this timepiece became the first Japanese watch to house a true high beat watch movement.
The manual winding caliber 5740C powers the Seiko Lord Marvel 36000, and it has a power reserve of around 40 hours. The watch features a classic design with a stainless steel case measuring 37mm in diameter and 12mm in thickness. This example is fitted with a rare numerical hour marker dial that is in very low production number, with silver-tone hands added a touch of elegance to the watch.
The technological breakthrough of caliber 5740C propelled Seiko onto the international stage of watchmaking, and its impact can still be felt today. This movement paved the way for the Hi-Beat Grand Seiko movement that is now considered one of the brand's most iconic features.
The Seiko Lord Marvel 36000 is not only a watch but also a piece of horological history. It represents Seiko's dedication to innovation and precision, and it is a must-have for any serious watch collector. Whether you're a fan of vintage watches or a Seiko enthusiast, the Lord Marvel 36000 is a timeless piece that you won't want to miss. Order yours today and experience the pioneering spirit of Seiko for yourself.
