Seiko SCVK002 from 1995
For sale is a Seiko SCVK002.
The Seiko SCVK002 is a hidden gem from Seiko that provides great value at its price point.
The beautiful champagne sunburst dial is decorated with beautiful multi-faceted hour markers and the “double bar” markers to indicate the 12 o’clock position that resembles vintage King Seiko and Grand Seiko.
Instead of painted minute trackers, small shimmering dots are being adorn around the circumference of the dial as minute trackers.
Complementing the alluring dial is a set of high polished baton minutes and hours hands and a thin seconds hand with a crescent acting as the counter balance, something that is similar to the seconds hand of the Credor Eichi.
Powering this beauty is the Seiko calibre 4s35, the very first 4s movement to be created. The 4s35 movement is the direct descendant of the Seiko Daini 52 movement and the father of the Credor 4s movement to come.
The Seiko 4s35 features Hi-Beat 28800bph movement and has a factory adjusted accuracy of +15/-10 sec a day. It is similar to the Seiko 8L35 (found in Seiko Marine Master 300 SBDX017 and Sla017) or 8L family except for the power reserve of 40 hours instead of 50hours.
Making the SCVK002 extra collectable is the fact that the 4S35 was only found in SCVK001 (Stainless Steel) and the SCVK002 (Gold plated).
Originally retailing at ¥115,500 the watch has been discontinued and stays hidden as one of the greatest value buy for any collector that comes across it.
The watch is in mint condition other than very light hairline scratches along the case and some aging on the crown. The dial and crystal remains free from any signs of usage.
The watch comes on a brand new handmade top grained leather strap.
