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 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 Lord Matic 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 5606 have become one of the most ubiquitous Seiko mechanical movements of the time.
This special new movement in Lord Matic 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 5606 movement.
Lord Matic are issued in many variances of dial and case configuration, this specific Lord Matic 5606-7071T we are offering is fitted with silver sunburst dial, a chapter ring similar to the classic Rolex Datejust and a curved lug with the design adopting the Seiko Grammer of Design and reminds you of the design of the King Seikos back in the 70s. The case is brush and mirror finished and well preserved with some minor usage marks near the lugs. The silver and black hour marker match with the set of mirror-finished silver and black hands.
The watch size is best for your weekday tailor suit and your weekend sweater and jeans.
