For sale is a hardly seen Seiko 5206-6081.

The word "Special" printed on the dial is no marketing gimmick. Vintage Seiko watches with the word "Special" printed on the dial signifies a higher standard of regulation on the movement of the particular calibre.

Produced by Seiko's Daini factory, the 52 series calibres are high end automatic watch movement produced as their last attempt in winning the competition against the Suwa factory.

Even though the Daini factory is no longer around, the innovation of 52 calibres continue to live on in Seiko's 4s calibres as seen in Credors and alpinist series.

Paired with the calibre 5206 is a beautiful gradient amber linen dial that is hardly seen on any vintage Seiko.

The watch is in mint condition with little signs of usage seen other than common hairline scratches seen on the case.

The watch comes on a brand new handmade top grained leather strap.
