#GrandSeiko 6146-8000 in “cap gold” from 1969. #GS61 I have a suspicion that the hands may not be original, or possibly have been refinished. Still a lovely watch though!
Distortion created by the crystal on a vintage #GrandSeiko. Full frame shot and model details up next. #macromonday
Not bad for a 47 year old crown. #GrandSeiko. Note the very shallow depth of field – this is a crop from a full frame shot coming up shortly. #macromonday
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.

Finishing off my #MacroMonday set of three posts of the #GrandSeiko 6146-8020. Very pleased to add this NOS piece from August 1969 to my collection.
Last year I decided to get one each of the Spring Drive, Quartz, and Hi-Beat 36000 movement Grand Seikos to add to my watch collection. After acquiring the first two and appreciating just how amazing these timepieces from #Japan are, I decided to focus my collecting purely on #GrandSeiko. This is my first Hi-Beat 36000. And what a fascinating piece. #MacroMonday
Another day, another NOS #GrandSeiko! Today it’s the turn of a #6145-8020 with so many intriguing features. Check out that amazing patina on the dial. If this was a #Rolex, that alone would probably add 10’s of thousands to the value 😂 Details up next.
