King Seiko 5246 Automatic

Vintage Seiko King Seiko 5246

Interesting King Seiko (5246-5030) from February 1973. The KS range represented one of the higher specifications from Seiko in what some would call their heyday. Unusual case shape in good condition using the 5246 calibre which featured instantaneous day date change at midnight. Likewise an unusual and attractive typical 1970s dial.
