Fun fact. In the 50s, Seiko had 2 subsidiaries Daini and Suwa operating out of Japan. Not only were the 2 factories operating independently, they were also competing with each other in the art of watchmaking, from movement to design. The rivalry resulted in the King Seiko (Daini) and Grand Seiko (Suwa) collections. The example here came from the Suwa factory. One can identify this from the tiny Suwa logo on the side of the day-date window.

Seiko 6138-8020 (Year 1975)

I read a few articles about both of those collections competing against each other while researching this Lord Matic I purchased in Novemer of last year. Fascinating history. Thanks Benny.
