This is an all original vintage 4520-8000 Grand Seiko.

Overall, this piece is in outstanding vintage condition. The case has some nicks and scratches but we believe it has just been polished a couple of times in the past given that the case retains sharp edges with a beautiful Tanaka grammar of design profile. The bottom right side of the lug has a dent that is visible (see picture). The original silver/white dial is in clean condition with no visible blemishes or discoloration. The crystal has some scratches but is in fair condiiton. The handset and crown are all original and in good condition. The movement has been serviced recently and is running well at the moment at +4.2 seconds / day. The original case back and gold GS medallion is in great condition.
