Seiko: An Exquisite Watchmaker
Unlike many other luxury watch companies that are based in Switzerland, Seiko has a unique origin: Tokyo, Japan. Seiko, which translates to “exquisite” in Japanese, was founded by Kintaro Hattori in 1881. Originally, the company was called K. Hattori. After operating for 11 years, Hattori began to produce clocks, and renamed the brand Seikosha, which translates to “house of exquisite workmanship” in Japanese. in 1924, the brand again changed names, this time, resulting in the brand we know today, Seiko.
In 1969, Seiko created the Quartz Astron, the world’s first quartz watch able to be produced in large numbers. At the time, Seiko’s chief engineer was quoted as saying “it was more expensive than the family car.” Although only 200 watches were produced, this innovation caused a serious rift in the world of watchmaking. While quality watches had been typically primarily produced in Switzerland , Japan had now solidified itself as a true competitor in the global watch market.
While mostly known for their watches, Seiko has also been producing incredibly accurate and precise chronographs (think stopwatches) for many years. They have been the official timekeepers of multiple Olympics, starting as early as the Tokyo Olympic Summer Games in 1964, and as recently as the Salt Lake City Olympic Winter Games in 2002.
Current popular models include the Grand Seiko, Astron, Anata, Sportura, Premier, and Le Grand Sport.
Popular Seiko Models
Grand Seiko: The Grand Seiko, Seiko’s flagship watch, has been in production since 1960. The designers of the Grand Seiko set out to produce the most reliable and accurate watch that Seiko had ever made - and they succeeded. The Grand Seiko has a simple yet elegant design, free of ornate adornments typically found on other luxury watches. Designed to be the perfect watch, the Grand Seiko has become one of the prime examples of Japanese luxury, and is prized by its owners.
Astron: The Astron has been proven to be one of the most technologically advanced watches in existence. With the help of embedded GPS, the watch automatically adjusts to any international time zone you are in - all 39 of them. In addition, the Astron obtains its power through light, including artificial sources of light. The calendar is automatically calibrated to be accurate until year 2100, and will require no manual adjustments until then.
Ananta: Continuing with the theme of technological innovation, Seiko engineers embarked on using every piece of available technology to create the Ananta. In addition to traditional hour and minute hands, many Ananta models contain a GMT hand, simultaneously displaying the timezone. In addition, the Ananta contains over 292 individual parts, and is embedded with a stopwatch that can run for up to 12 hours.
