SEIKO ~56's SUPER~
Introducing the 1956 Seiko "Super".
After the war, the demand for wristwatches grew rapidly, and domestic wristwatches were evaluated as having poor quality, and overseas products were preferred.
Despite the adversity, the "Super" showed performance that was comparable to overseas products at the time, proving the high quality of domestic watches, and was positioned as a presence that would have a great influence on later domestic watches. increase.
This time, the "Super" to be introduced is the late model of the hand-wound 15- stone model.
The case size is 33.5mm (crown), which was the mainstream in the 1950s .
Although it is a simple round case, the lugs are called "fancy lugs" and have a high design, giving a more dressy impression than regular lugs.
Looking at the dial, the dial, which was silver at the time, has changed beautifully to a vintage beige.
The colors match well with the nicely burnt gold indexes, giving it a vintage feel that cannot be expressed with current products.
The embossed S mark that shines above the Seiko logo tightens the overall impression of the dial, giving it a luxurious feel.
The movement is hand-wound with 15 jewels.
The initial 8 stone model did not have an earthquake resistance function, but this 15 stone model is equipped with an overseas anti-seismic device, making it the first Seiko product with an anti-seismic function.
Furthermore, at that time, a mechanism called Honnaka three needles was adopted early.
At that time, there were few products that used this mechanism, but the fact that many manufacturers later adopted it also proves that this movement is excellent.
The dial is in a beautiful state that has undergone wonderful aging. There are no noticeable scratches on the case.
The movement is also in good condition and can be used for a long time depending on maintenance.
This is a wonderful piece that lets you experience Seiko's long history.
