Seiko Is Making 3,000 Recreations Of Its King Seiko KSK Watch From 1965

Dec 11, 2020

In 1961, Seiko introduced its King Seiko brand, hoping the prestigious new label would demonstrate the Japanese horological outfit’s world-class ability to deliver ultra-precise mechanical timepieces, while also hoping to stoke innovation by having King Seiko compete with the company’s Grand Seiko range that was first unveiled in 1960. And with this year marking the 140th anniversary of the outfit’s inception, Seiko has opted to celebrate the illustrious occasion with a recreation of the iconic King Seiko KSK.

Powered by a 6L35 caliber automatic movement, the watch is built around a 38.1mm stainless steel case bestowed with a super-hard coating and paired with Zaratsu-polished lugs, a dial with silver indexes and a split textured index at 12 o’clock, and a genuine crocodile leather band mated to a clasp sporting Seiko’s 1965-era logo. The watch’s case back features the same emblem seen on the 1965 model, though now also boasts a laser-etched production number—the only deviation from what is otherwise an exact replica of the King Seiko KSK watch from 1965. Limited to only 3,000 units worldwide and sold in a special presentation box, the Seiko 140th Anniversary Limited Edition Re-creation of King Seiko KSK is priced at $3,300, with a release scheduled for January of 2021.
