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.
On the left hand side of the front cover of this issue of Seiko Sales, it is just possible to make out a 57GS sitting in the tray. Whilst we can see from the dial layout that this is one of the earlier “Chronometer” dials, it’s not possible to discern any text around the 6 o’clock marker. However, given the date of the publication, we are going to take a punt and say this is either a 43999 AD dial or 5722-9990 – it is almost certainly too late to be a 43999 SD dial.
