Seiko Lord Matic Special LM 5216-7090 from 1975
For sale is a Seiko 5216-7090.
The Seiko 5216-7090 features a multi-textured multi-gradient green dial . The details on the dial is just incredible, the lenticular printing (or technology similar to it) used on the dial allows the different shades of green applied spring to life as the watch is viewed from different angles.
All these goes on top of a “breeze” like pattern beneath the printing, creating a truly immersive experience when viewed.
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 5200 series calibres are high end automatic watch movement produced as their last attempt in winning the competition against the Suwa factory.
The 5216 calibre is the most updated calibre from the 52 family that allows you to quickset the day and date at your desired timing which the other 52s lack.
Even though the Daini factory is no longer around, the innovation of 5200 calibres continue to live on in Seiko's 4s calibres as seen in Credors and “Red Alpinist” series.
The watch is in mint condition except for common hairline scratches seen on the case and bracelet. The crystal has been replaced for greater clarity.
The watch comes its original Seiko LM signed bracelet.
