Seiko Lord Marvel 36000 Hi-Beat Daini Version
Since 1958, Lord Marvel had always been the pioneer of Seiko's watch making technologies. The first Lord Marvel was the predecessor of the first Grand Seiko Cal. 3180, and Lord Marvel 5740-8000 was the first ever 36000 Hi-Beat Seiko watch. Due to its popularity and relatively affordable pricing, Seiko continued to produce Lord Marvel 5740-8000 for almost 10 years. The watch here has an extremely rare model number 5740-8009. As seen on the inside of the case back, it could probably be a special version produced by the Daini Factory of Seiko instead of the usual Suwa Factory.
