To my knowledge no Lord Marvels have day or date complications, almost all of them have that rather typical dial that looks like it's curving downward (I read somewhere at some point how they make it, it's really quite obscure, something about laquering and heating, and then it curves it's self downwards as it cools?). Most Lord Marvels have arabic numerals on the indexes, and gold examples are equally as common (and beautiful) as steel ones.

    All the Lord Marvel's I've seen have the same movement, which beats only at 36000 and is manual only. Doesn't hack, and doesn't back-hack either. Some users have noted it's quite loud, and I was expecting this. Mine however seems to be totally whisper quiet, I can barely hear it 2 inches from my ear last night.

    Definitely one grade down from KS pedigree, and two down from GS, but given GS of this era usualy go for 600~, and KS for 425-485 (chronometer KS add 150-250), I'm quite happy to stick with Lord Marvel variants, which usualy sell around 200-280.

    Thanks a lot. You opened my eyes for a new branch of Seiko. How is accuracy on those movements?
