Seiko Lord Matic Special LM 5206-6081 from 1972
For sale is a Seiko 5206-6081.
The watch features an understated blue dial that perfect for those who prefer a change from their usual black/grey dial watch rotation.
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 and a spot dot on the dial. The watch crystal is also in great condition with minimal hairline scratches.
The watch comes on a brand new handmade top grained leather strap.
