We all know that Seiko revived the Grand Seiko series as top of the line models since 1998. However what is little known, is that in the year 2000 Seiko made a reissue of the King Seiko as well. This King Seiko reissue SCVN001 was included in a commemorative ‘Historical Collection’ series which contained 10 different watches.
So in this reissues series of Seiko’s ‘significant watches in their watch making history’, they didn’t include a Grand Seiko. Only a King Seiko, which got the reference SCVN001 and was produced only in 2.000 pieces, aimed at the domestic market in Japan.
There’s a wonderful article on Musings of a Watch Addict‘s blog which you really should visit and read; here’s the link: King Seiko Reissue
At the moment these re-edition King Seiko’s are very hard to find and regularly fetch over $ 2,000.- at various auctions. So what do you think, would you rather pay this amount for a reissue (with a slightly less high-end caliber) or much less for the real deal? -> King Seiko 5625-7000
