Grand Seiko 56GS 5646-7010 Wako Edition
56GS was the last generation of vintage Grand Seiko. Right after Seiko issued the 61GS, there was a need to build the ultimate daily watch that could be used for decades, so there were some majors changes. In order to improve robustness and stability, the frequency of the movement was adjusted to 28800bph from 61GS's 36000bph. The movement was also redesigned to be thin and compact, making 56GS the slimmest automatic Grand Seiko at that time. This watch here was exclusively sold by the Ginza Wako, a high-end department store retailer in Japan. Instead of a flat crystal, it has an unique faceted crystal which makes reading the dial interesting.
