For many vintage Seiko watch collectors, the 62 Grand Seiko is one of the holy grails in their collection. However, due to the heavy demand, the 62GS comes with a premium price tag, making it out of budget for many. Thus, we embarked on a quest to find an alternative for our dear followers.
Back in the 70s, Seiko had a practice of building a base movement and fine-tuning it into higher accuracy movements for their high-end watches. We can find the 56 series base movements using in both Lord Matic and the higher accurate ones used in King Seiko and Grand Seikos. The same principle applies to the 62 series movement, which was used in the Seikomatic watches from the 60s. After extensive research, we found the Seikomatic series, which housed the base version of the 62 series movement.
