King Seiko 44KS 44-9990 Shield Medal
Introduced in 1964, 44-9990 was the second King Seiko model. The 18000bph manual movement Cal.44A was slightly modified from the first King Seiko's movement, and the hacking function was the major change. As for the case, the lugs were enlarged and widened, thus the watch looks bigger on the wrist without making a substantially giant case. It also has a crosshatch-textured hour marker at 12 o'clock, which can only be found in this particular model. This 44KS has a case back with the iconic "King Seiko" shield medal, which was limited to early productions of 44KS before late 1966. In 2020, 44-9990 was picked by Seiko to celebrate its 140th Anniversary and reissued with modern watch making technologies.
