The 5646-7030 (dial code 7040T) is a rare reference in the 56 Grand Seiko series which ran from 1970-1974. It has a unique sand textured almost snow like texture to the dial and is a fan favorite amongst vintage GS collectors and is highly collectible. The dial has most certainly inspired many of the textured dial that exists in today’s modern GS lineup.
