    Since making their initial timepiece in 1924, the name Seiko was synonymous with fine craftsmanship, and Seiko watches are known worldwide for their outstanding design, elite performance, and heritage of style.

    Initially founded in 1881 by Kintaro Hattori, a watch and jewelry store owner from the Ginza area of Tokyo, the company first started generating wallclocks in 1892 under the name Seikosha: Seiko is Japanese for"achievement","mini" or even"exquisite" and Sha means"house". Over the upcoming few decades, Seikosha climbed and started producing pocket watches and wristwatches, and in 1913 debuted the Laurel, the first timepiece ever produced in Japan. The quartz watch phenomenon enabled Seiko to expand rapidly. The company became known as the leader in timekeeping precision, and Seiko products were frequently used to period major sporting events such as The World Cup, and the Olympic Games.

    Since their early beginnings as the one of the world’s premiere watchmakers, Seiko has set several precedents, such as sponsoring Japan’s first TV commercial in 1953, serving as the Official Timer of 1964 Tokyo Olympic Games and producing 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 movement creation so as to keep ahead of contests. With the building of its first balance wheel in 1910 and the first dial in 1913, Seiko has sinced developed a unique line of quartz and mechanical watches including the Seiko automatic Chronometer collection, the Bell-Matic, with a mechanical alert, the luxury Credo, King Seiko, and the Grand Seiko lines. Seiko’s Kinetic watches accounts for the vast majority of the company’s watch sales since it unites the self-energizing feature of an automatic watch with quartz precision, and recharges itself completely from the energy and motion of the wearer. By now Seiko has 6 different Kinetic movements including the Seiko Kinetic Auto Relay. It’s an energy saving feature at which it hibernates when not used and wakes up again up to 4 decades after the correct moment. The latest technological advancement in Seiko is that the Seiko Spring Drive introduced in 1999. Spring Drive is a mechanical watch with all the precision of a quartz watch. The mainspring in the Spring Drive forces a rotor whose electrical output signal induces a quartz crystal to emit a reference signal which regulates the speed at which the mainspring unwinds. It has a power reserve of 72 hours, among the greatest amongst all mechanical watches.

    With innovation in the heart of its firm, Seiko is bounded to be in the forefront of new watch technology.
