King Seiko 1965 Re-Creation

The 1965 King Seiko KSK series defined the character of King Seiko with its combination of a flat dial with faceted indices and broad, razor-edged hands, giving the watch its refined and striking presence. The originally popular Sixties design is modernised for today with a new retro dial colour and striking gold marker accents. This version is updated from its original inspiration with a newly developed slim structure combined with a sapphire box glass, for a case depth of 10.33mm, the slimmest of 6R calibre models. It features a King Seikocrest mark on the crown and case back and the bracelet is inspired by the original 1960s design through a combination of mirror and hairline finishing. The delicately cut three-dimensional indices are beautifully placed on the fine and radiant dial and the 12 o’clock marker is lightly finished by a pattern technique of making just one single surface incision at a time. There are just 1,700 pieces available globally of this limited edition. £2,830, Available Seikoboutique.co.uk
