A hand-wound Grand Seiko manufactured by Daini Seikosha in 1971. It is also known as 45GS. The case is made of multi-faceted cut stainless steel. The case is made of multi-faceted stainless steel with a mirror finish and hairline finish. The dial is silver sunray. The combination of bar indexes and dolphin hands is classic. The hands and indexes have black centers for solid time reading. The movement 4522A is the highest peak movement which was the base of VFA and Observatory Chronometer. 4522A is the last and the highest peak crystal manufactured by Daini-Seikosha as the culmination of their technology in the era when the world of watches was moving on by quartz watches in December of 69.
Condition. There are few scratches and the delicacy of the craftsmanship is clearly visible. The medallion on the back cover is easy to show damage, but there are only minor scratches and the engraving remains deep. The dial, hands, and indexes are all in good condition with no dulling. The watch has been disassembled and cleaned by our company, so it is ready to use immediately after purchase.

Suwa Seikosha and Daini-Seikosha (Kameido) enhanced each other through the development of their respective products. The automatic 61GS was developed at Suwa Seikosha, while the hand-wound 45GS was developed at Daini-Seikosha. The hand-wound 45GS was entered in the Observatory Chronometer Competition, where it was competed against other hand-wound chronometers, and achieved good results, leading to its commercial release as an Observatory Chronometer model. This feat leads to the cancellation of the competition itself, a major historical event.
Grand Seiko was born from the determination to create the world's finest wristwatches in 1960, and while respecting the traditional Seiko style, it is the pinnacle brand that continues to pursue and evolve the essence of the wristwatch.
