Grand Seiko 4520-8000

Next series is the 45GS. There are four different movements in this series. Two of them are currently missing from my collection – there’s a VFA, and of course the legendary Astronomical Observatory Chronometer. Of the “regular” pieces, first up is the 4520-8000 in Cap Gold. An interesting detail on this piece to be highlighted in the next post. #GrandSeiko #Seiko

Grand Seiko Logos

So this morning’s shoot was to do a comparison of the #Seiko logo on the dials of a selection of my #GrandSeiko collection.

Some interesting variances, especially if you look carefully at how the K and O are joined in the vintage pieces.

From the vintage era:
6145-8020 from 1969 – 4520-8000 from 1970

And on the bottom row from the modern era:
