The first true high beat watch movement in Japan and second in the world. The Seiko Lord Marvel 36000.
When exploring Vintage Seiko dress watches, Grand and King Seiko often come to collector's mind at first because of their high finishing standard and technological development. However, Seiko chooses to give the glory of the 1st high beat movement to Lord Marvel back in the 1960s.
During the 1960s, the majority of watch movements beat at 18,000 beats per hour. Watch companies sought to build a high beat movement for higher accuracy. Girard Perregaux comes first in the world on building the first 10 beats per second movement. Shortly after GP, Seiko launched their manual winding caliber 5740C - the first 36,000 bph watch movement in Japan and second in the world.
