This is an all original 4520-8000 Grand Seiko.

Overall, this 45GS is in great vintage condition. The case is in outstanding condition and we believe it has never been polished. The edges are very sharp with a beautiful Tanaka grammar of design profile. The original silver/white dial is in clean condition with some discoloration along the edge of the dial as well as around the applied GS logo but nothing major. As can be seen by the picture, the white dial has evenly and beautifully patina'd just slightly. The crystal was replaced with a NOS (new old stock) Seiko crystal. The handset and crown are all original and is in excellent condition. The movement has just been serviced by our watchmaker and is running well at the moment at +6.2 seconds / day. The original case back and gold GS medallion is in outstanding condition.
