Grand Seiko 6146-8000

Grand Seiko 6146-8000. Look carefully, and you’ll notice something different about the dial layout on this 6146 compared to those I’ve posted previously.
49 years old this month, this watch is an early example of the 61GS series and does not have the text “Hi-beat”, or “Hi-beat 36000” on the dial. Rather, below the Grand Seiko logo, it has the text “Grand Seiko”, and below that, the logo for the Suwa factory.
Another fascinating little detail that makes collecting these vintage Grand Seikos so rewarding! Crop coming up later to highlight another interesting feature on this dial…
