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

Overall, this piece is in nice vintage condition. The case has some bumps and light 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 original silver/white dial has some spotting and blemishes especially around the edge of the dial (please see picture - asking price reflected for this), which is a common occurrence in this model, but otherwise is clean overall. The handset and crown are all original and in good condition. The movement was just serviced in October 2020 and is running at an outstanding -2.4 seconds / day. The original caseback and the original gold medallion is in near perfect condition.
