King Seiko 45KS 36000 Hi Beat Gold
Introduced in 1968, 45KS shared the Hi-Beat manual movement with 45GS and was among the most accurate watches Seiko produced in late 1960s. Like 44GS, the case was inspired by Taro Tanaka's philosophy, but 45KS has a more conservative design generally. This watch here has a gold plated case, which was marketed by Seiko as a premium option and was thus priced a bit higher than the usual stainless steel version. The case back is still protected by its aged but original sticker, making us wonder if this watch was almost unworn over the years.
