Introducing the Seiko Crown made in 1961 .

 At the time, the thinner and smaller a watch was said to be the better it was, but when Seiko developed the Crown, they dared to make the movement larger.

Looking at the numbers, the difference is only a few millimeters, but when you actually compare them, the impression you get is very different.

However, by deciding to make it larger, we were able to obtain various benefits, such as improved maintainability and part durability.

The release of the Crown was a great achievement in instantly raising the reputation of Japanese-made watches up to world standards, and it had a major impact on the development of later Seiko watches.

This is one of the most representative models of Seiko watches.


The "Crown" we are introducing this time is a watch with unusual details on its indexes and hands.

The silver dial on the face has been specially treated to reflect the light it receives in a spiral pattern.
In addition, the distinctive silver color, which has changed with age, gives it a heavy feel and is very eye-catching.

The indexes are not the upright type commonly seen on other Crowns, but rather a rare engraved type.
The uneven surface of the dial creates shadows, giving the impression of varying intensity.

The hands are dolphin shaped, but are multi-faceted and have a luxurious shine.

Both the indexes and hands have been carefully crafted and at great cost, and when combined with the dial and gold case, they create a very elegant "crown."

The movement is a 21 jewel hand-wound Cal.560 .

It is one of Seiko's representative movements, boasting high precision as well as stable operation and durability.
This is an easy-to-use model even for those purchasing a vintage watch for the first time.


Size: height: 43.5mm , width: 37.6mm , thickness: 10.2mm , weight: 37g .

The aged gold case blends in very well with the skin when worn, and has an impressive, elegant shine without any of the gaudy feel that is typical of gold.

The simple design means it can be incorporated into a wide range of outfits, from formal to casual, and it looks interesting when paired with a jacket or even a denim jacket.


The condition is good, with some small scratches on the case, but no rust or other damage, and it can be used without any problems.
The dial has some discoloration due to aging, but this actually enhances the vintage feel and visibility is not affected.
The movement is in good condition with no rust etc. It works without any problems.

Please be sure to read the following information after purchasing an antique watch.

When selling antique watches at RESUME, we do not immediately hand over the watch to you upon receiving your order. Instead, we ask a professional craftsman to overhaul it (hereinafter referred to as OH) and deliver it to you after the OH is completed. (This takes about 1 to 2 months.)

A professional craftsman with first-class watch repair technician qualifications will completely disassemble your watch, replace worn parts such as the internal gaskets, clean it, oil it, and perform a thorough overhaul, maintaining it to a daily accuracy of about ±1 minute.

When we deliver the machine, we will also send you our own overhaul certificate, which shows what kind of overhaul we performed, as well as photos of the machine being disassembled and maintained.

Of course, due to the nature of the product itself being a second-hand item, there is no guarantee that it will never break, but we ask for your understanding that we take this approach so that you can enjoy the original performance of the watch and use it with peace of mind in the future.

When you purchase a product, we offer a one-year warranty depending on the model. Even if the warranty period has expired, we will properly repair the product, but there will be a fee. If there is no repair shop near you, please feel free to contact us.
