Unusual vintage Seiko King KS 5246-5000 from April 1972. Nice oval stainless steel case in good condition, original KS signed crown. Black dial with some patina, steel hour markers. Baton hands with patina. Day (in English and French) and date at 3 o’clock, with a working quickset.
The watch is in its original condition except for the glass crystal that has just been replaced.
The automatic Seiko 5246 28,800 bph movement is clean, has just been serviced and is holding very good time (+ 5 s/j), the balance having a good amplitude. The 5246 calibre is one of the best Seiko mid/high range ever produced. Some of them were Chronometer certified. More recently, Seiko based its famous 4S15 on this 52xx family.
Finally, the watch comes with a brown leather band.
This is probably one of the most unsual King Seiko model.
Vintage watch with unknown history but checked and cleaned (04/2022). Water resistance non tested.
