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.
Overall this piece is in great condition. The case shows light scratches and a few minor nicks on the side. It may have been polished in the past but retains sharp edges. The crown is original. The original dial is well preserved with the Seiko and GS applied logo in crisp condition. The original hands and indexes show little aging and wear considering its age. The crystal is a replacement crystal and is scratch free. The caseback is in good condition with the original lion medallion showing little signs of wear and retaining its beautiful shape. The watch has just been serviced by our watchmaker in March and is running at +3.1 sec/day.
