    Good Afternoon

    I didn't have a watch with a faceted glass and a green and blue dial. Having studied the vintage Seiko range and particularly the King Seiko range, I immediately fell under the charm of the KS Vanac which had the same movement as the GS of the time, the famous 5626, while having more cheerful and original colors for the dial.

    I bought two KS Vanac because they were new from stock and very complicated to find in this condition.

    Have a nice week end

    Georges

    Condition looks great. Any reason why these don't have the usual KS gold medallion on the caseback?

    Probably because they weren't like the traditional King Seikos which were certified chronometers but a rather very specific series from King Seiko, the Vanac
