Also known as the father of Grand Seiko, the Seiko Lord Marvel was introduced in 1958 (two years before the first GS) by Suwa Seikosha with one goal: To become Seiko’s first-ever luxury model.
The reference we have to offer is the iconic S Mark Lord Marvel Gold Filled J14057 「Sマーク」. This model was the first Lord Marvel ever made and undoubtedly one of the rarest. The logo of this Lord Marvel was hand-carved by the same expert craftsmen at the Suwa factory and the S logo has a beautiful and unique raised 3D Shape.
In addition, this is a "special dial" Lord Marvel as indicated by the sun-shaped octagonal logo above the six o'clock, meaning that the index of this watch is made of 18k solid gold and was hand planted at the Suwa Seikosha factory.
The S mark Lord Marvel is highly desirable by Japanese collectors and this is a chance to own this masterpiece and top luxury model from the Suwa Seikosha.
