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 5605-7011S we are offering is fitted with a silver linen dial and multi-dimensional brushed smooth curve lug and mirror polish finishing case in a mint condition. The design adopting the Seiko Grammer of Design and the unique shape of the case means it can sit comfortably around the wrist with a matching curve. The hand of the watch is mirror-finished with a black dashed line unique in the vintage Seiko in the 70s. The overall condition of the watch is just awesome!
If you need an entry to the deep vintage Seiko world, this will be the perfect watch to start your wonderful adventure.
