Hello watch enthusiasts,


You should be aware of the Seiko 36000 bph Lord Marvel series, as it is the first line of Seiko watches to achieve this beat rate, even before the Grand Seiko line.


I have been waiting to acquire one of these, in good condition, at a reasonable price.


Toward that end, I took a chance on a seller that I had not bought from before.

The cardboard box within the air mail pouch.

A comforting amount of foam wrapping in the box.

And a bubble-wrapped bundle inside.

And there it is, a 36000 bph, hand-wind Lord Marvel, in excellent condition, with a very nice new brown strap.


Would you like a closer look? :-D


I knew you would!! :)

If I have the history right, the first 36,000 bph Lord Marvel was in 1967, so the serial number of this one, that starts with a "5", means this is a 1975 example. It sure is in good condition! :-D

Here is the crown side.

The "subject" side.

And the case-back.

I could not resist wearing it, especially with that excellent strap, so I put on a ecru colored oxford cloth dress shirt for this wrist shot.'

I will be putting a yellow-gold Bob Davis deployment on it, but here is a shot of the original buckle, showing the attractive texture of this strap.

Thanks for looking!

I find it interesting that the C movement made it into the Lord Marvel vs the GS back in the day.

I guess they wanted to beta test prior to install into the GS.
