    Still a King Seiko is a King Seiko even if it is not named that on the watch.

    Go easy on the changing of the date as the Cal. 56xx and 52xx have date issues(they used brittle plastic for the changing mechanism)
    You were so right about the date issue. The date setting function only advances one click now the stops.

    That's quite a find! Those square Seiko 5's are my favorite watches to wear and collect!

    Of 250+ watches in my collection this is a top 5. I actually got another blue dial Seiko the other day.

    I have an 82 at the jewelers right now, and a 74 on my dresser!

    Love that one too!

    It took a while to put together, well worth it and gets more than half of my watch wear time.
