    The present Grand Seiko reference 57GS from approximately 1965, produced at the Suwa Seikosha factory, is a wonderful representation of the model known for its date complication. The 57GS series was first released in 1964 and produced with three different variations of calibers, with the present example being fitted with the high-beat caliber 5722B using a 18,800bph oscillation rate, and the successor to the Grand Seiko caliber 3180.

    The present watch is in lovely condition, having been overhauled by Grand Seiko. The original silvered sunburst dial is wonderfully preserved, while the case retains strong proportions and crisp lug bevels. The thick and sturdy lugs are characteristic of this watch, which was the first to adapt Zaratsu polishing in Grand Seiko.An extremely rare complete set, the watch is accompanied by its original presentation box, chronometer rating certificate, tag, brochure and buckle.

    Vintage Grand Seiko timepieces are gaining popularity in the international market due to their sophisticated, high-quality movements and aesthetically pleasing mid-20th century designs. This reference 57GS is an outstanding representation of the high-quality mechanical timepieces produced by this Japanese manufacturer during the 1960s and 70s.

    The present lot is further offered with a one-year warranty provided by Grand Seiko Corp of America.
