The 61GS series launched in 1967 and there were a vast variation of models that were produced throughout the production run of the series (51 models in total) that lasted until 1975.
This is an all-original vintage 6146-8000 Grand Seiko employing the famous G.O.D (grammar of design) case design first introduced in the 44GS. This 61GS is the late version with the applied GS logo above the 6 O'clock marker with the Hi-Beat 36000 printing. It is extremely rare for a 61GS to come with such condition and this is a chance to own this historic piece.
The watch has been serviced by our watchmaker.
