Reigning supreme in the world of watches
When it comes to luxury timepieces, only a few names evoke quite the same level of awe and admiration as King Seiko. The 1960s was a decade of unprecedented advances for Seiko, both in terms of technical development and design creativity. Alongside Grand Seiko, another series demonstrated the company's ability to create beautifully designed and finished mechanical watches with high accuracy.
It was called King Seiko. In addition to its precision, it offered a powerful yet graceful design that symbolised the high quality of its construction. Today, after more than half a century, the King Seiko collection is back with timepieces that showcase the lasting quality of Seiko’s mechanical watchmaking prowess.
Five timepieces. Five fascinating dial colours.
Introducing five new watches that embody the lasting design values of 1965, enriched with the technology and engineering of today. These exquisite timepieces share a distinctively sharp and angular design inspired by the 1965 King Seiko KSK, which was the second series to be created and the one that defined the character of King Seiko. The combination of a flat dial with faceted indices and broad, razor-edged hands lends the watch a refined and striking presence.
An ode to magnificence
The case is designed so that, combined with the boxed-shaped sapphire crystal, it gives each watch a slim and elegant feel. An anti-reflective coating on the inner surface of the crystal delivers high legibility from any angle. Powered by Caliber 6R31, the watch delivers a power reserve of 70 hours and is water resistant to 100 meters.
A testament to precision
The bold, faceted lugs have sharp angles and wide flat surfaces that feature both mirror and hairline finishings, creating a sense of precision. The twelve o’clock index is more than twice the width of the others and has a patterned texture specially crafted to ensure high legibility and to give the dial a bright sparkle that invites the eye.
Fashioned for sophistication
The bracelet pays homage to the design of the original King Seiko series and its many bevelled surfaces reflect light in a way that is dynamic and ever-changing. King Seiko offers five different types of exclusive straps.
A symbol of power
The crown and case back bear the new King Seiko emblem whose design was inspired by that of the 1965 KSK.
