Hi, this for sale is a Grand Seiko SBGW047 which is very rare and doesn't come up for sale often. released in 2013 limited to only 700 pieces, remake and tribute to the legendary 44GS of 1967 for celebrating 100 years of Seiko watchmaking. The watch is in great condition at 90% with some light marks on the case, the original strap shows lots of wear and currently mounted on a super high quality alligator strap which costs $300. the watch looks much nicer on this strap. boxes and papers included.
I'm asking $4500 including Paypal fees and worldwide shipping. It will be sent from Republic of Korea via 3-5 days trackable EMS shipping.
I have lots of references here you can find by searching "OPIC"
Thanks for looking!

I have bought two watches from OPIC in South Korea and both times it has been a great transaction. Besides having impeccable taste in timepieces , the descriptions and details for his sales are always accurate and honest, although there has never been anything but perfect items from him anyway. ...By MediumRB on WatchUSeek

The company was founded in 1881, when Kintarō Hattori opened a watch and jewelry shop called "K. Hattori" (服部時計店 Hattori Tokeiten?) in the Ginza area of Tokyo, Japan. Eleven years later, in 1892, he began to produce clocks under the name Seikosha (精工舎 Seikōsha?), meaning roughly "House of Exquisite Workmanship". According to Seiko's official company history, titled "A Journey In Time: The Remarkable Story of Seiko" (2003), Seiko is a Japanese word meaning "exquisite" or "success" ("exquisite" is usually written 精巧 from Chinese jīngqiǎo, while the meaning "success" is usually written 成功 from Chinese chénggōng).
Seiko is perhaps best known for its wristwatches, all of which were at one time produced entirely in-house. This includes not only major items such as microgears, motors, hands, crystal oscillators, batteries, sensors, LCDs but also minor items such as the oils used in lubricating the watches and the luminous compounds used on the hands and the dials.
