FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) About Seiko King Vintage Watches

What is special about King Seiko?

In addition to its precision, it offered a powerful yet graceful design that symbolized the high quality of its construction. Today, after more than half a century, the King Seiko collection is back with timepieces that showcase the lasting quality of Seiko's mechanical watchmaking.

Is King Seiko same as Grand Seiko?

With Grand Seiko being a more well-established brand in recent times, the GS brand definitely gets the nod here. While King Seiko watches are still high quality, it is more of a modern reinterpretation of a dormant Seiko sub-brand.

What movement is King Seiko?

New modern creations are even slimmer than the original, an advance made possible by the thinner 6L35 movement and enhancements in the case construction as well as a new box-shaped crystal with a reduced height.

What size is a vintage King Seiko watch?

Still, this is not a boring design. Small chamfers are present that flow inwards towards the 18mm strap. Similarly, the outer top edges should be sharp — anything otherwise is a sign of over-polishing. The King Seiko 4420-9990 checks in at 36.5mm in diameter and 42.7mm in length, but it looks large.

How accurate is King Seiko?

Behind it is the Seiko caliber 6R31 offering "good, not great" accuracy of +25 to -15 seconds per day (especially considering the $1,700 price tag) and a stellar 70 hours of power reserve.

Where did King Seiko come from?

Kintaro Hattori opened a shop in Ginza to sell timepieces in 1881, thus beginning the history of Seiko. His company produced Japan's first wristwatch in 1913 and has since advanced the art of watchmaking through both technology and craft.

How do you wind a Seiko King?

To wind up the watch, turn the crown clockwise slowly. The vintage wrist watch cannot be wound by turning the crown counterclockwise. In this way, the watch can be wound up fully. Furthermore, turning the crown further will not break the spring.
