King Seiko Vanac 5626-7250 Ultra Rare Vintage Purple Dial Working Excellently
History: The Vanac King Seiko was the final line of King Seikos with which the line ended in 1974. This specific watch for sale was made in 1974, making it one of the last King Seikos to ever be produced. As a result, Seiko made sure to craft this final group of watches into something one of a kind. These Japan exclusive watches were the high end of the high end, taking the already luxurious King Seiko line to its next and last level of mastery before it was ended. The Vanac's were produced with these superior movements as well as with stunning, unique dials of varying colors, and a modern, sharp looking case design and excellent finishing. This movement has handwinding, hacking, quickset for date and day, which is bilingual with both English and Kanji days.
The day/date wheel has a black background instead of white, which fits better with the deep purple dial and gives the piece a sleek appearance. The purple dial in particular is the only one I've ever seen and one which I can say, without doubt, is the most beautiful dial I have ever seen. Condition: The watch is in excellent condition for its age. Crystal and case are all in great condition.
The crown seems to have a minor tilt, but the crown clicks into each mode normally and it handwinds without issue, as well as being completely secure throughout all of my use, so this has no effect on the function of the watch. The piece boasts some very light, beautiful sunspots on the center of the dial which match the day wheel and center of the hands as well. The watch keeps time great, running within a few seconds per day, and all pieces of the watch are 100% original. Comes on a like new Seiko black leather strap (non-OEM) from Japan.Watch is about 36mm in diameter. Feel free to message me with any questions and I'm happy to look at any offers you may have.
