Caliber 5856
was one of Seiko's better accuracy quartz movement at the time of production and is rated to
+/- 10 Seconds Per Month.
Based on the caseback serial, this watch dates to July 1978.
Mineral crystal is free of scratches and the gold-plated case has shown some wear around the crown and on the underside of the plating, but no dents/cracks.
Very unique dexagonal bezel surrounds the textured white dial with gold indices in near perfect condition; no stains or damage.
The signed crown has some wear on Seiko honeycomb sign, but it works fine in all crown positions.
Quickset day/date work without issues.
Caseback has some light scratches but all marking are readable and it appears unpolished.
What really makes these watch special is the included NOS XBB-18SL KQ signed sliding clasp lock gold placed bracelet
silky smooth and a few light scratches from storage but never used!
The bracelet
easily fits my 7.5 inch wrist with room to expand.
Watch keeps accurate time and all functions work; may not be accurate to factory spec, so service/cleaning recommended for daily use.
I don't have a movement pic since I didn't want to damage the worn case around the caseback.
No box/paper/tags.
This King Quartz had definite wrist presence - time for some King Bling on the wrist!Shipping: Priority ConUS shipping is free and preferred. However I will consider International Offers on a case-by-case basis.
Questions welcome.
Thanks for viewing!
