Description

Between 1969 and 1974, Grand Seiko marketed a number of references for women. In total, there were five references presented in the range, although not all at the same time.

Three of the references were in the classic “Grammar of Design” cases, which were very similar to the 452x-8000 cases we see in the men’s range. These three references all had the movement-case serial number 1964-0010, and came in regular stainless steel, cap gold, and “PMP” (platinum plated steel). The fourth reference – 1964-0020 – had a round case, and the final reference was the 1984-3000 VFA.

Of particular interest is the fact that both the 1964 and 1984 VFA calibres beat at 36,000 bph. Whilst select other brands have ladies watches with 5Hz movements, we believe that only Grand Seiko actually produced reduced size ladies calibres beating at this rate.

We cover all the ladies references in detail in an article that you can find here.
