This is an all original 4520-8000 Grand Seiko.

Overall, this 45GS is in very nice vintage condition. The case is in good condition and although it has obviously been polished in the past, it retains a nice edge and the beautiful Tanaka grammar of design profile is still prevalent. The original silver/white dial is in clean condition with some discoloration along the edge of the dial but nothing major. 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 case back is in good condition but the original gold GS medallion is slightly worn out as can be seen by the picture.The movement has just been serviced by our watchmaker and is running well at the moment at -4/5 seconds / day.
