Introduced in 1967, the 62GS series was the  first Grand Seiko with an automatic movement. Produced by the Suwa Seikosha, the watch was originally introduced to the market in 1966 as the 62 Seikomatic model. These Seikomatic’s were marketed as chronometers, but following the objection from the Swiss chronometry association, Seiko established their own “Grand Seiko Standard” and removed the word “Chonometer” from their dials - thus bringing the 62 Grand Seiko to the market in 1967. The 62GS was only produced for two years making it one of the rarer vintage Grand Seiko model. Its design has been used in many of the modern GS models for its timeless / revolutionary bezel less case architecture. 

Overall this vintage 62GS date is in very good condition. The case has recently been polished (as such, is scratch free) but still retains its original case geometry and sharp lugs. The original dial is well preserved with the applied Seiko and GS applied logo crisp. There is a tiny blemish around the 4 o'clock index (as can be seen on the macro photo) but it is practically unnoticeable from afar. Besides this the dial is flawless and shows very little ageing. The crystal has been replaced with a new old stock crystal.

 

The handset and index are original and shows some ageing but is in excellent condition. The watch does not come with the original caseback and instead comes with an after market clear caseback, allowing you to enjoy the beautiful 6245A caliber.

 

The watch has just been serviced in September 2020 and is running at +6.2 sec/day. The date function is currently working properly as well with the quick set date working.
