    Prior to 1960 most people believed Swiss watches were the highest quality and Japanese watches were inferior. Seiko believed they were capable of producing watches of the same quality as the Swiss. The Grand Seiko is the result of their beliefs. The birth of GS was followed by the success of the Tokyo Olympics and Seiko's victory at the astronomical observatory Concours.

    This 1968 GrandSeiko automatics has achieved SEIKO internal GS standard approval. Developed from the technology that cultivated by the astronomical observatory Concours, the movement has 25 jewels and ultra high beat at 36,000 bph with accuracy +/- 2 seconds a week.

    Despite the watch being 45 years old, I wear it everyday and time keeping is still excellent.

      Since you posted this watch I have been just sitting back and waiting for the right time to state my father had this watch, it was his scone last until we gave home a new one for his 69th birthday...

      I think he got this in the early 70s during his big trip to the States, UK and Japan for government business.. Thank you so much...I'm crying but tears of joy and reminiscing ...xx

      Anne, I am very pleased that this watch brought back fond memories of your father!
    17. AnneLanders AnneLanders, 8 years ago
      i think from memory he had a gold metal band that expanded..he had awful arthritis and it helped because he didnt have to do up the buckle strap
    18. geo26e geo26e, 8 years ago
      Anne, those were called stretched or expendable bracelets, indeed very popular in the 50s, 60s and early 70s!
