Icon2 FS: Vintage 1969 GRAND SEIKO Hi-Beat 6145-8000 with Crosshair Dial. Recently Serviced

One of the more sought-after vintage Grand Seiko automatics – especially in this limited-run, sportier-looking cross-hair dial version – the 6145-8000 is also one of the more faithful examples of designer Taro Tanaka’s famous Grammar of Design.


Condition

The case is in excellent condition with sharp and complete edges and corners, some light surface swirls and lines can be seen, but no major dings or scratches. The silvery-starburst dial with multi-faceted indices and all three hands are in excellent shape, with sharp printing and unblemished SEIKO and GS applied logos.

The original GS-signed crown operates perfectly for winding, time setting, and for adjusting the quickset date.

The movement was serviced at Michael Young’s Classic Watch Repair in June this year, and is clean and bright, showing about +2 secs a day in the dial-up postion on my timegrapher. A brand new and correct acrylic crystal was also fitted during service. Service paperwork will be included as a PDF at time of purchase.

Production date: April 1969.
Case: 37mm x 12.5mm.
Lug width: 18mm.

Thanks for looking

If preferred, I can replace the bracelet with this brand-new Seiko leather strap and brand-new GS stainless-steel buckle. Same price as above.
