The Grand Seiko 44 series are actually quite hard to come by. On the left, the regular steel version, and on the right, the rare gold-cap version.
Dial detail from the #GrandSeiko 4420-9990.
The 44GS in Cap Gold is pretty rare, so when I had the chance to pick this up for a relative bargain, I did. This 4420-9990 is not in the best of shape, but it’s still a nice piece. In time, I may look to get a better one, but it’s not high on my priorities. #GrandSeiko #Seiko

Moving on to the #GrandSeiko 4420-9000. For those joining part way through, I’m posting shots of my vintage Grand #Seiko collection this week. This is the third of, well… just wait and see 😜
Time for a #GrandSeiko #vintage #SOTC. Posting in reverse chronological order, from 1967, the 4420-9000. #Seiko #Stateofthecollection #watch #watchesofinstagram #horology 7/9

#GrandSeiko 4420-9990 A #GS44 in cap gold – not many of these about, so despite its condition, I decided to pick it up.
And how’s that for a second hand? Absolutely genuine. And possibly unique to this watch – I don’t recall seeing a second hand shaped like that on any other model of #GrandSeiko
🙁 Poor #GrandSeiko. I almost didn’t buy this one. As you can see, it’s not exactly in great condition, but it is pretty rare. So rare in fact that a lot of people don’t even realise it exists.
