Introduction The purpose of this newsletter is to provide guidance on which vintage Grand Seiko auctions on Yahoo Japan might be of interest to collectors. I also detail those “dodgy” listings that you need to avoid.
Are all coarse ones the plated brass ? Maybe I’m imagining it but they made steel coarse later right ? Eg 44gs ? There’s a 43999 sd with an original brown coloured brass crown, I’d rather it looked normal and steel colored so wondering whether to wait to find one but if it doesn’t exist (or wouldn’t be original if it was ) then I’d reconsider
What do you mean by you liking the well worn crown on the 43999? I heard many 43999 crowns were replaced with 5722 ones, is worn down a positive sign that it’s an original 43999 crown or something?
The 5646-7010, on one of the pictures that shows the inside backcase with watchmaker signs there seems to be one jewel and one jewel holder lying there? Could this be an issue?
