History of Seiko
Seiko was established in 1881 by Kintaro Hattori in Ginza, Tokyo. At 21 years old, the young entrepreneur decided to open a shop in central Tokyo where he began selling and repairing watches and clocks. Just 11 years later, the 'Seikosha Factory' was born. The inspiration for the name comes from the combination of Japanese words ‘seiko’ – meaning exquisite or successful – and ‘sha’ – meaning house. Hattori soon became known for his skills, producing wall clocks across Tokyo. By 1913, he had successfully created Japan’s first wristwatch, an adaptation on his pocket watch made in 1895. This then went on to become the official watch of Japan’s National Railway, which appointed Seiko as its official supplier.
The brand grew in leaps and bounds through the years, from being the official timer in the 1964 Tokyo Olympics to creating Japan’s first diving watch in 1965. It was water-resistant for up to 150 metres and was used in the Japanese Antarctic Research Expedition. To top it all off, in 1969, Hattori landed himself incredible recognition for manufacturing the world’s first automatic chronograph, equipped with both vertical clutch and column wheel. This impressive timeline of events is what has led to the brand’s reputation as the pioneering watchmaker it is known as today.
