1974 Seiko 5740-8000 Lord Marvel Hi-Beat 36000

1974 Seiko 5740-8000 Lord Marvel Hi-Beat 36000


Understated. Minimalist. Austere.... Seiko's Lord Marvel is a testimony to simplicity and elegance. Crisp lines and beautifully beveled and tapered lugs give the case a classically designed platform from which to showcase a combination of dial and movement that refuses to go unnoticed. This example from July of ‘74 is fantastic. The dial is a creamy white linen beneath a glossy lacquer finish with applied Arabic markers finished in black. It has some light patina at the edges that gives it unique character and great vintage appeal. Above the "Suwa" symbol  is the cleanly printed "Lord Marvel" branding followed by the 36000 distinction. The sword hands are polished, striped, and taper to a fine point. As indicated it houses Seiko's 5740C, a high beat "marvel" of a movement. It is manually wound by the oversized crown and hums along at 36000 bph making the slender and reaching second hand appear to glide along the minute track. This piece is pure class on the wrist and is bound to catch more than a few second looks. On light brown distressed leather with reverse stitching, it is nicely finished and a perfect addition to any collection.
