Seiko 140th anniversary Limited Edition King Seiko
This timepiece has been created in celebration of two key Seiko Watch Corporation anniversaries: 140 years since the beginning of Seiko and 60 years since the King Seiko was launched.
‘King Seiko’ originated when multiple Seiko factories created different watches to encourage healthy internal competition and drive innovation – one of the Japanese watch brand’s constant aims.
In the 1950s and 60s, Daini-Seikosha and Suwa-Seikosha factories competed against one another; the Suwa team created Grand Seiko and the Daini experts invented King Seiko.
The 2021 King Seiko has been updated from its original inspiration with uniquely shaped flat lugs, deeper glass, and a medallion design on the case back. A slightly bigger size than its first appearance, it is now 38.1mm where it was 36.5mm and features sapphire crystal glass. The manual winding movement from the original is automatic in this new 2021 version, with a calendar to move with the times. Its stately, dignified and majestically classic looks remain.
