Hello folks,
I am usually a lurker but today I have the joy to present you a grand acquisition:) Yesterday at my local flea-market I saw a watch which had the distinctive lines of a grand seiko. I quickly grabbed but to my minor dissapointmet it proved to be a gold capped Seiko Grand quartz 4843-8041, but for 60 euros I didn't think too much. Its serial number is 670494. It has a pepsi logo next to 9 o'clock marker. Do you know if it was a promotional watch for pepsi or something else;

original crown too!!

Much of the original finish remained

I would get someone

I would get someone that does Dial's real good to get the Pepsi off
and then it would look great.
Eliminate the Pepsi LOGO off it. That was a mistake to start with
when they did that.
It looks great though, very nice to have, but keep it till you can do
the removing part.
Because that's a very nice find.

I think that however good the restorer is the dial would be destroyed. Also I think that this is part of the history of this watch and it's pity to destroy it..

I love the Pepsi but only because all I ever drink is Pepsi Max :)

The pepsi logo is what makes this watch different and special....do not remove it!
I agree and if I may add, it's part of the history of this watch. Does Seiko responds to questions about vintage Seikos; I would like to know if this was a promotional watch(which I think it's unlikely because this was expensive these days) or a gift to some employee.

This is not an exact translation but should give you enough of an idea.

  • Within +-5 seconds deviation per month (room temperature)
  • 2 years Battery life
  • Use Battery SB A8
  • One Touch Battery Cover
  • Battery life end function
  • Second hand stop device every 10 seconds
  • Day Japanese English Switching (GQW)
High precision to rival the world, Japan Chronometer Inspection Association AAA Grade.
Superlative quality finish.

Hope this helps.
