Icon2 SOLD: Vintage 1970 KING SEIKO 4502-7010 HI-BEAT with KS Buckle

1970 KING SEIKO 4502-7010 HI-BEAT


Condition

This 1970 King Seiko 4502-7010 is in fine condition, both inside and out, with sharp case lines and properly brushed surfaces, and comes with a correct and authentic KS buckle.

The dial and hands are all very clean, as are the applied SEIKO and KS dial logos and indices.

The gold caseback medallion shows minimal wear, and the Seiko Hardlex crystal and original KS-signed smooth-winding crown are also in great shape.



The individually numbered, hand-winding Hi-Beat 4502A movement is bright and clean, and keeping very good time (gaining just a few seconds in 24 hours). Quickset date function works as it should.
