Grand Seiko 6185-8010 VFA

The Grand Seiko 6185-8010 VFA, with the 6185A movement, would appear to be significantly rarer than the later, 6185B movement based, 6185-8020.
Manufactured in 1968, it is of particular interest due to its blue dial and palladium/silver alloy hammer-toned case.
Watches utilising this movement are so rare, that the only other similar watch I have seen for sale since I acquired my example was a 6185-8000 that differs primarily by not having the hammered case, and coming on a rather fetching matching bracelet. That bracelet commands a significant premium though – the 6185-8000 sold in auction earlier this year for over 2.5 million Yen.
Happy #GSWednesday!
