Selling my Vintage Seiko Lord Marvel 36000 model 5740-8000 Manual wind. I have two, so I'm letting one go to another owner to love and enjoy. A little background.. Back in the day wristwatches started with 18,000 BPH, eventually moving up to 24,000 BPH. Research into a watch capable of beating at 36,000 BPH was undertaken in the 60s. In 1966, *Girard Perregaux*, a Swiss watch company, became the first to succeed. A year later, Seiko scored 2nd with the introduction of *Calibre 5470c* – a manual wind hi-beat movement at 36,000 BPH fully developed in-house – and to commemorate this achievement, the movement was used in a 36,000 pieces limited series of the *Lord Marvel* range in 1967. It was (and remains so today) rather unusual that Seiko chose to use the 5470c movement in their *Lord Marvel* series as opposed to their high-end line, *Grand Seiko*, which was introduced in 1960. Most importantly, the 36,000 BPH *Seiko Lord Marvel* laid the foundations for what would eventually become the legendary Grand Seiko watches in the 70s till today. A hi-beat movement even today is a rarity, and coupled with its unique history the Lord Marvel is a great little gem to have in your collection. \- The watch works perfectly and keeps excellent time.
