Response to Yeh, let's have more vintage talk :>)
But, for now, I'll have to start with just this ...
from the Seikomatic archives, there is a write-up of the Lord Marvel series of watches [which started in late '50s on a "Marvel base" movement, then switched to a "Crown base" or cal. 5740]. It's a bit interesting that Seikomatic wrote an article on a manual wind!!
Anyway, related to quality of early '60s models, they have to say this [somewhat badly translated]. OK, Koga is crying to go out, so I'll just have to copy & paste for now rather than attempting to clean up the text to make it more readable, I guess it'll have to be another day:
Ministry of International Trade and Industry central Inspection Institute of Weights and Measures from 1961 was proven by ..the first place.. heroic deed in all of time "Long-term accuracy comparison examination" first-three times executed high accuracy to which loading Marvel was stabilized.
"Accuracy of Seiko proven again"
"The first Seiko loading Marvel place in the long-term comparison examination of the wristwatch made of the foreign country domestic. " SEIKO NEWS NO.58 The clock to which the total quality inspection was brought in by the manufacturer when it is domestic where the Ministry of International Trade and Industry went from (1963/4) to the quotation deflecting by sponsoring while done, the result of the examination for 30 days had already been announced in May, 1961 when having bought it by what the inspection station clerk in charge extracted, and had bought from both of clocked by use to the accuracy comparison inspection of this domestic production and wristwatch made of the foreign country department stores and the clock shops in Tokyo.
At that time, Seiko loading Marvel was proven, and it became, and the excellence of Seiko was proven to be the first place.

(omission)
