The Seiko Lord Matic is a legendary timepiece that continues the legacy of Seiko's famous Lord Marvel Line. If you're a watch enthusiast, you may have heard of the Lord Marvel 36000, which was fitted with the groundbreaking 5740C movement that could beat at an astonishing 36,000 beats per hour. This watch holds a special place in the JDM market as the first true 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!
The Lord Matic line was fitted with a sophisticated 56 series movement and high-quality case design and finishing, elevating it to a new level of sophistication. To make it more impressive, the watch that used to be one notch below King Seiko line have taken off in market demand becoming a market sensation, 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.
The Lord Matic line was issued in a wide range of dial and case configurations, and the specific model we're offering, the Lord Matic 5606-7011, features a silver linen dial and a multi-dimensional brush and mirror finished case. This watch has been nicely preserved, and the original brushed finish has been retained to maintain its factory fresh appearance. The design follows the Seiko Grammar of Design, and it shares similarities with the 56 King Seiko produced during the same era. The watch's sword hands are remind us of the Grand Seiko style, adding an extra touch of elegance to its overall appearance. In short, this Lord Matic watch is in good condition, and it's sure to delight any vintage watch collector.
If you need an entry to the deep vintage Seiko world, this will be the perfect watch to start your wonderful adventure.
