Grand Seiko 6156-8040

Grand Seiko 6156-8040.
Regular followers will know that I am a huge fan of the 61GS “Specials”. These watches were regulated to +/-3 seconds per day – only the VFA’s were more accurate.
One Special in particular has been eluding me since I started collecting vintage Grand Seikos – the 6156-8040. With it’s fantastic lug-less case, and spectacular textured dial (more on that in a later post for #macromonday), this to me is by far the most special Special. I was delighted to be able to pick one of these up a couple of weeks ago after more than a year of looking for one.
With a manufacturing date of August 1974, this is the youngest vintage Grand Seiko in my collection.
