Seiko Lord Matic Special 5216-8020 from 1975
Presenting the distinguished Seiko 5216-8020, a prized gem among Lord Matic Special variants, meticulously curated for discerning collectors.
Heralding from a fleeting era between 1975 and 1976, the Seiko 5216-8020 encapsulates a harmonious blend of precision and aesthetics, much akin to vintage Grand Seiko designs. Its exquisite case boasts the hallmark curved sideline, high-polished planes, and dimensional surfaces reminiscent of the bygone era's horological elegance.
The bronze-toned linen dial, adorned with a subtle touch of gold on the iconic "LM" logo, adds an air of opulence and refinement.
Remarkably, the "Special" insignia on the dial stands as a testament to more than mere nomenclature. In the realm of vintage Seiko, this insignia signifies an elevated standard of movement regulation, exemplifying the watch's unwavering commitment to excellence.
Hailing from Seiko's venerable Daini factory, the 5200 series calibres shine as a crowning achievement of automatic watchmaking. Designed to transcend competition and penned as their swan song against the Suwa factory, these calibres continue to influence modern iterations, such as the revered Credors and Alpinist series.
Distinguishing itself from the rest, the Calibre 5216 boasts an innovative enhancement, facilitating seamless transitions during day and date changes.
While the watch case displays common signs of usage, it bears the legacy of its journey with grace. The dial and hands retain their timeless charm, untarnished by the passage of time. A pristine crystal maintains its brilliance and unmarred.
