Another recent addition to the #GrandSeiko collection is this 5645-5000 from 1971. 18k gold hammered case, and a wonderfully textured dial – detail on those coming up next.
This is an interesting piece to look out for. It actually doesn’t seem to be that rare – there are always a handful available at any one time, but asking prices do vary wildly. It is quite a challenging watch to shoot well – hardly any sales photos of this watch look good, mainly due to very high apparent contrast on the hammered case. Odd really, and I think that maybe why these are so slow moving. It is stunning in the flesh, and I hope I’ve done it justice here!
