Since producing their first timepiece in 1924, the title Seiko was synonymous with fine craftsmanship, and Seiko watches are well known worldwide for their superb design, elite performance, and heritage of style.
Initially founded in 1881 by Kintaro Hattori, a watch and jewelry shop proprietor in the Ginza area of Tokyo, the business initially began producing wallclocks in 1892 under the name Seikosha: Seiko is Japanese for"success","mini" or"exquisite" and Sha means"house". During the upcoming few decades, Seikosha climbed and started generating pocket watches and wristwatches, and in 1913 surfaced the Laurel, the first timepiece ever created in Japan. The quartz watch phenomenon enabled Seiko to expand quickly. The business became known as the pioneer in timekeeping precision, and Seiko goods were frequently utilized to time major sporting events such as The World Cup, and the Olympic Games.
Because their early beginnings as one of the world’s premiere watchmakers, Seiko has set many precedents, such as sponsoring Japan’s first TV commercial in 1953, serving as the Official Timer of 1964 Tokyo Olympic Games and making the first TV watch in 1982, to name a couple.
Seiko is also known for using state-of-the-art technology. From the first days in the Seiko history, Kintaro realized the importance of having in-house components and motion creation in order to stay ahead of competitions. With the construction of its first balance wheel in 1910 and the initial dial in 1913, Seiko has sinced developed a unique line of mechanical and quartz watches including the Seiko automatic Chronometer collection, the Bell-Matic, with a mechanical alarm, the luxury Credo, King Seiko, and also the Grand Seiko lines. Seiko’s Kinetic watches accounts for the majority of the company’s watch revenue because it unites the self-energizing feature of an automatic watch with quartz precision, and recharges itself entirely from the power and movement of the wearer. By today Seiko has 6 separate Kinetic moves including the Seiko Kinetic Auto Relay. It has a power saving feature whereby it hibernates if not used and wakes up again up to 4 decades later to the suitable moment. The newest technological advancement from Seiko is the Seiko Spring Drive introduced in 1999. Spring Drive is a mechanical watch with the accuracy of a quartz watch. The mainspring from the Spring Drive powers a rotor whose electrical output induces a quartz crystal to exude a reference signal which regulates the speed at which the mainspring unwinds. It has a power reserve of 72 hours, among the longest amongst all watches.
With innovation in the core of its firm, Seiko is bounded to be in the forefront of new watch technology.
