    Good evening
    Unexpected purchase on a very rare king seiko grey dial chronometer reference 5626-7170 with a grey canvas dial produced between 1970-1972. I didn't have a slate grey dial watch, this was a good excuse to buy one and especially with its glass in excellent condition.
    Kind regards
    Georges

    The glass looks like the ones they used on Vanac KS. I did not know some other KS had facetted glass too. Good find :thumbsup:

    Very nice really like that look. I just went to pick one up (Ks with a faceted crystal) as the watch place called me said I could pick up “my item” to my dismay it was a ring my wife dropped off the get polished. Darn what a let down. That model you have is really nice. The one I dropped off isn’t a chronometer but has an interesting green dial and those crystals are really something to see. That is a very nice example is that the original bracelet? Just curious I’m not real up on them.

    I don't think so, I will put it on a nice camilel fournet strap with a specific KS Buckle.
