Seiko Grand Quartz 4843-8050 from 1976 (HSS)
For sale is a Seiko 4843-8050.
Featuring an eye catching textured dial, it is not surprise why the 4843-8050 is such a popular reference amongst collectors.
The depth of the elements on the textured dial of the 4843-8050 sets itself apart from the typical textured dial you see on vintage Seiko.
Pairing this alluring dial is Seiko's Hardened Stainless Steel (HSS) case with a Hv score ~450. This added hardness allows the watch to be more scratch resistant. The usage of HSS is not marketing gimmick as examples of 4843-8050 can always be seen in immaculate condition.
The watch also has the advance seconds forwarding technology found in the Seiko Superior 4843 calibre. The watch advance to the next 10 mins mark when the crown is being pulled to the second position.
The watch is in excellent condition with the dial, crystal and hands in perfect condition with no visible signs of aging seen. Being a HSS case, the case looks great except for scuff mark on the right side of the case and nicks on the bezel.
The watch comes on its original GQ signed bracelet.
