Seiko - A History

The company currently known as Seiko Corporation was founded in 1881 as K. Hattori & Company, Ltd., as a wall clock repair operation, and quickly expanded to manufacturing wall clocks. In 1924, K. Hattori began producing fob watches using the Seiko name. Seiko gradually became well known in the watch industry and became a pioneer by creating technological advances including the first self-winding watch in 1955. By 1988, Seiko brand introduced battery free quartz watches and watches that were multi functional with alarms and timer features that operated through state of the art computer chips. As the company became known for its watches, K. Hattori & Company produced watches under different subsidiary names, but in 1990 the company formerly changed its name to Seiko Corporation.

The reliability and quality of the watches helped the Seiko brand become the designated timepieces for major sports events in a number of countries. Seiko was the official timer for the Olympic Games in Tokyo in 1964, World Cup Football in Mexico in 1986, and other events internationally in subsequent years. The Seiko name gradually diversified and divisions in Seiko Optical Products (1996) and Seiko Jewelry (1997) were created. In 1998, Seiko debuted the first watch propelled by body heat. By 1999, Seiko created watches that automatically self-corrected current time. Seiko has been on the cutting edge of technology, accuracy, and reliability with its products making it a premier brand internationally that stays a step ahead of consumer needs.

It is definitely an elegant gent watch with beautiful metallic lustre. Moreover, the slender roman numerals and the little fine data display make it not feel old style. The watch hand in some specific angle is deep blue which feels exquisite. It is quite thin and light I can easily wear it all the time. The size 40mm diameter is moderate for varying thickness of wrist. If you like the beauty of simplicity, grace as well as the practicality,this SEIKO quartz watch much accurate than a mechanical watches could be your choice. I am indeed very satisfied with it.

I am so in love with this watch ! It is beautiful and nice and large the white face also looks quite distinctive, I have had many comments on it so far and people think it looks so much more expensive than it was. The numbers for the date and nice and large and its great that you can also see the month aswell. It feels so well made and fits perfectly on my wrist, I have a feeling that I will be wearing this for years. One amazing feature is that if you take the watch off for a weekend, you just give it a shake on Monday and the time corrects itself which is genius! It keep times brilliantly and you will not be disappointed if you buy this as a present for a loved one or even as a present for yourself !
