Grand Seiko and the VFA. Movement

In the late 60s Seiko looked toward Switzerland and wanted to make Grand Seiko more accurate than Swiss mvmts and created a series of Very Fine Adjusted watches that were averaging +/- 1 seconds a day. These automatics got lost in the quartz era but are now collectible at high prices. Here's Seiko's write up on the subject.
