Seiko Grand Twin Quartz 9256-8010 from 1979
For sale is a Seiko 9256-8010.
Featured under "Vol.4 The journey to the ultimate in quartz watchmaking" on Grand Seiko's official site; collectors might be familiar with the Suwa's Grand Twin Quartz calibre 994X that features an accuracy of ±10s/year that rivals the current calibre 9F but only a handful are aware of the Daini's Grand Twin Quartz calibre 9256.
Set to be released 4 months after the introduction of the calibre 994X, the calibre 9256 shares a similar specification with the calibre 994X such as the accuracy of ±10s/year.
The rarely seen Seiko 9256-8010 offered for sale here features a brushed case and integrated bracelet that might remind many of watches from the hands of Genta.

The watch case is in excellent condition with common hairline scratches seen. The watch dial and hands are free from any signs of aging. The original crystal has a light hairline scratch at 2 that is hardly visible.
