Just to share with you my "Hi Beat" King Seiko!!!!!!
Hand winding beauty from 1971 with high beat movement. Base caliber 45.
After a basic service and simple adjustments it's running PERFECT!!!!!!!
+1,5 sec per ......WEEK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Amazing quality and design.



To my personal opinion one of the must watches for each one that needs accuracy with less than 1000€.

Nooooooo! That's my watch! It's born in 1971, just like me! : P

I need to find a 1971 Seiko.

Congrats! It's a nice one.

Search my friend and you will find a variety of KS in different prices and conditions.
Pay attention because no spare parts available!!!
For the mechanism you may find something, but for case and glass very difficult.
With less than 500$ (including your own service payment) you are going to be a happy owner of a stunning KS!
