The Seiko Lord Matic, the successor of Seiko's famous Lord Marvel Line. Most watch geeks may have 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 Seiko 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 5606-7470 we are offering comes with an extremely rare blue with gradient change in tone of blue. The lighter blue is formed by a cross form of brush finish on the dial. The cross formed on the dial have gave the dial a unique texture matching with its diamond cut glass.
The second highlight of the watch is it original NOS Seiko Diamond cut glass, with almost 50 years of history, most of the available reference are fitted with a heavily scratched glass. We are extremely proud to be able to source a reference with a NOS original glass with its unique shape. Finally the The watch case is a mirror polishing case in the same condition as it came out of the factory. The overall condition of the watch is amazing!
This Lord Matic is close to a new old stock where the glass and case have barely any usage mark found. It is a rare find in the market. Get it now before its too late.
