There are just 1,700 pieces available globally of this limited edition – a re-creation of the ‘King Seiko’ KSK series.
The 1965 King Seiko KSK series defined the character of King Seiko with its combination of a flat dial with faceted indices and broad, razor-edged hands, giving the watch its refined and striking presence.
The originally popular Sixties design is modernized for today with a new retro dial colour and striking gold marker accents.
In the 1960s, King Seiko timepieces led Seiko Watch Corporation’s developments in world-leading technical precision, along with Grand Seiko. ‘King Seiko’ originated when multiple Seiko factories created different watches to encourage innovation – one of the Japanese watch brand’s constant aims.
This version is updated from its original inspiration with a newly developed slim structure combined with a sapphire box glass, for a case depth of 10.33mm, the slimmest of 6L calibre models. It features a King Seiko crest mark on the crown and caseback and the bracelet is inspired by the original 1960s design through a combination of mirror and hairline finishing. The delicately cut three-dimensional indices are beautifully placed on the fine and radiant dial and the 12 o’clock marker is lightly finished by a pattern technique of making just one single surface incision at a time.
Long live the new King Seiko: modernised elite watchmaking, yet its stately, dignified and majestically classic looks remain.
