Footnotes

  • In the early 1960s Seiko began to manufacture very small quantities of chronometer grade mechanical wristwatches, rigorously tested to compete with Swiss chronometers. Seiko displayed the 'Chronometer' name only on the few watches which had passed an in-house Seiko chronometer standard testing, very similar to the one made in most Swiss observatories at the time. These watches were named Grand Seiko and displayed the Gold Lion medallion on the case back to denote "chronometer-grade."

    The present lot has a first generation Grand Seiko cal. 3180 manual winding 25-jewel movement with 18,000 bph train. This model is the earliest Grand Seiko Chronometer grade wristwatch produced.
