An iconic, super-thin King Seiko from 1969

The one-of-a-kind limited edition is inspired by a classic, tonneau-shaped King Seiko from the late ’60s. And thanks to Seiko's own automatic Caliber 6L35’s remarkable slimness, this new King Seiko is as comfortable to wear as the svelte original that inspired it from 1969.

The new King Seiko series adopts the contours of the 1969 watch but reimagines them for modern times with a rounded, box-shaped glass. This limited edition is characterized by its light greenish-blue dial with a textured pattern inspired by a rising dragon, which serves as a metaphor for the Seiko brand progressing toward the next 100 years. The dragon is also the animal sign for 2024 in the Japanese zodiac, which remains a part of the country’s culture. 

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.
