I just can’t get enough of these 62GS’s. A recent addition to the collection was a Cap Gold version of the 6245-9000. Here it is alongside its stainless steel sibling. Both watches are from 1966. Amazing to realize that they are 50 years old.
Incredibly, Seiko didn’t simply cap the existing stainless steel case of the 6245 to create the Cap Gold version. Nope. Look closely and you’ll see that it is in fact an entirely new case design.
It’s these little details that I think make collecting vintage Grand Seikos so rewarding. And it would seem that I’m not the only one, because recently prices have been rising considerably, with some models increasing by more than 50% since the beginning of the year. 😳
