Introduced in 1967, the 62GS series was the  first Grand Seiko with an automatic movement. Produced by the Suwa Seikosha, the watch was originally introduced to the market in 1966 as the 62 Seikomatic model. These Seikomatic’s were marketed as chronometers, but following the objection from the Swiss chronometry association, Seiko established their own “Grand Seiko Standard” and removed the word “Chonometer” from their dials - thus bringing the 62 Grand Seiko to the market in 1967. The 62GS was only produced for two years making it one of the rarer vintage Grand Seiko model. Its design has been used in many of the modern GS models for its timeless / revolutionary bezel less case architecture. 

Overall this vintage 62GS date is in great condition. The case may have been lightly polished in the past but is overall sharp and retains its original case geometry and lugs. The original dial is well preserved with the applied Seiko and GS applied logo in top shape. Overall the dial is clean. As can be expected from a watch of this age, it shows some ageing and there are minor  blemishes throughout the dial but nothing major. The crystal has been replaced with a new old stock crystal. The handset and index are original and shows some ageing but is in good condition. The watch comes with its original caseback with the highly desirable lion medallion. The medallion is slightly chipped along the lion's tongue and tail due to aging. Besides this, the original caseback medallion is in excellent condition. The watch has just been serviced by our watchmaker in November 2022 and is running at an excellent -4.2 sec/day. It comes with a 3 month movement warranty from us.
