Lord Marvel with the 5740C version of the movement was Seiko's first "ultra" hi-beat @ 36,000bph. It is seen as a "trial run" for the other 36K watches that came later [Grand Seiko & a King Seiko]. This one is handwind too!

It runs @ the "A" accuracy grade, same as KingSeiko.


The 1st one has stick markers:





The other one of mine has Arabics and looks a lot like a Ball Railroad watch in spirit:





Caseback:






Now, the movement:








Note the "rack and pinion" style fine adjuster!!
