An iconic, super-thin King Seiko re-imagined from 1969

This one-of-a-kind design is inspired by a classic King Seiko from the late ’60s.
Taking advantage of one of the automatic Caliber 6L35’s greatest strengths, its remarkable slimness, this dress watch is as comfortable to wear as the original that inspired it.

The new King Seiko series adopts the contours of the 1969 watch but reimagines them for modern times with a rounded, box-shaped glass. It also features a new multi-row bracelet with mirror-polishing and brushed finishing to achieve a quiet sparkle when it reflects light. Flip the watch over, and you'll note that the King Seiko “shield” has returned, and though the iconic silhouette of the original has been retained, it has been flattened and modernized. 

The multi-faceted index at twelve o’clock is designed with a pattern that evokes the feather fletching of an arrow, a feature familiar from traditional Japanese archery and a fitting detail for a watch that will glide under shirtsleeves. The hour and minute hands are cut on three sides, and they mark the time with a powerful radiance and a certainty toward the future.
