    A beautifully preserved vintage Seiko dress watch, useful for daily wear or office (but who goes into the office these days?). Excellent condition. Keeps accurate time within its chronometer rating. Automatic 5626A movement, which morphed into the current Grand Seiko models. Recent reissue by Seiko costs thousands more, grab a great deal here! Watch will be shipped from Canada

    Manufacturer: Seiko
    Model: King Seiko, 5626-7040
    Case: 36mm, steel, original polished surfaces, solid case back with sharp KS medallion, 18mm lugs
    Movement: Cal 5626A, Chronometer rated; automatic 25 jewels
    Dial: Original white dial, steel markers, full seconds track, original polished hands
    Crown: Original, KS signed
    Crystal: believed to be original to the watch
    Strap: Black leather strap provided, hard to find OEM KS buckle included
    Service: no service history over the 3 years I have owned it
    Complication: Kanji Day-Date at 3 o’clock
    Miscellaneous: Signed Seiko box provided; unclear if it was original to the watch

    Price: Now $675 USD or equivalent Cdn. Will cover shipping in North America, elsewhere at cost.
    Accepting PayPal or e-transfer (in Canada).
    No trades considered at this time. No refunds unless watch not as advertised
    Happy to provide other pictures upon request (some pics below taken by previous owner)

    I don’t know the seller just wanted to say I have a similar model which I have come to really like. So much so I am talking to someone in Australia about obtaining a KS buckle which I lack.

    If only you had listed this beauty a while back I would certainly have come calling, my attempt at retiring from watch collecting is proving to be more difficult than I expected. Yes i could simply ignore this forum but that will never happen.

    Hmm, I may have been most optimistic in pricing this piece.
    New price $750 USD or equivalent $CDN.
