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.

Seiko watches combines style, function, value to provide a vast selection of watches that is sure to satisfy discriminating customers.

Bought in a hurry, because my wifes previous Seikos watchstrap had broken suddenly. It had only lasted about 10 years, so I went for a new Seiko. I had a great Christmas with a very happy wife.\r\n She loved the shape, smaller and neater than the old watch and the strap which now fastens positively.

Have to say first of all that seiko has done another amazing job bringing this watch out! first glance and it looks beautiful and stands up high against the higher priced auto watches. Everything lines up correctly face of watch lines up with markers on the inner bezel. The brushed stainless steel looks great and the polished underneath is nice and stops the scratching from wearing! Nice bit of weight to the watch so if you like a lightweight watch this is not for you! The colours of black and gold make this a classy looking, Id say this can be worn at any time and with any attire. The lume on the watch is probably the best out there for this kind of money the lumibrite hands and markers last a very long time!! The bezel has 120 clicks in the anti-clockwise rotation which is nice and steady to turn. It has a wet suit extender to on the strap good if you are going to use it

I couldnt hold out any longer, did I need it Did I want it...yes. I have always liked the idea and style of the Seiko range of Astrons. They came out in 2012 Cal:7X52, but were not the first GPS watch that accolade goes to Citizen but there was always a niggling voice in the back of my head that they were too big first versions were about 48mm and nearly 17mm thick. They were also not cheap at around £1500 to £2000. Moving on to 2016 the newer calibre 8X22: Seiko description below, 2016 - Caliber 8X22 is a notable advance in Seiko’s GPS Solar technology. The case is slimmer than any other GPS Solar watch, even slimmer than all other Astron models the depth is just 12.4mm compared to 13.3mm in the other 8X series. As a result, the antenna that receives the GPS signals is inevitably smaller, but Seiko has managed to increase the processing power of the circuit in the GPS module so that the sensitivity of the antenna is unchanged and the reception of GPS signals is as easy for the world traveller as ever. With just one touch of a button, the new Astron adjusts to the local time in every time zone of the world, with an accuracy of one second every 100,000 years, using just the power of light. This new calibre piqued my interest so when I saw it in the Sportura range and a style that I really took to, and a price that didnt seem extortionate I couldnt hold out any longer and bought one from the UK at Watchshop. There are some 8X Astron models that look the same, just with Astron where Sportura logo is. Here is the SSF003J1 pics taken this evening There is also a strap and all black version.

Another SUPERB Quality Watch from Seikos PRESAGE range. Wonderful Build & Finish. Keeping Time to within around 3 seconds per Day - which is quite remarkable. Have now 2 Presage Watches in my collection - plus the Seiko Turtle PADI, - plus Seiko Alpinist. All using either the 4R, or 6R Movements - truly quite Special. Note: I also have a relatively new ROLEX, - but these Seikos have won me over. Value for Money is hard to ignore - around 20 - 25% of the cost of an equally accurate Swiss Quality Timepiece.
