One of the key aims of this site is to be a source of information for those who collect vintage Grand Seiko. We don’t just list the watches that we have for sale in the anticipation that customers will add them to their collections – we also list watches that we have never had in stock, along with as much data about those watches as we can glean. The intent is to be a reliable source of information about exactly which references were created by Grand Seiko, and to provide data on those references.
We are confident that currently this site contains the most complete, accurate and detailed information on the historical Grand Seiko references that you will find anywhere.
Below are scans of the two pages from the December 1972 issue of Seiko Sales that are of particular interest since the Grand Seiko watches featured on these pages do not appear in any of the official Seiko catalogues.
The references featured are the 6145-8050 and 6146-8050, which were available in multiple dial colours, featuring faceted crystals and coming on bracelets unique to these references.
We currently have available a very nice example of the green dial 6146-8050, retaining its original faceted crystal and bracelet – something that is very hard to come by these days.
