History of the only manufacture with every watchmaking expertise

The story of Seiko began in 1881, when a 22 year old entrepreneur, Kintaro Hattori, opened a shop selling and repairing watches and clocks in central Tokyo. Today, after more than 130 years of innovation, Kintaro Hattori’s company isstill dedicated to the perfection that the founder always strove to achieve.

In 1892 Kintaro Hattori bought a disused factory in Tokyo and Seikosha was formed (In Japanese, ‘Seiko’ means ‘exquisite’, ‘minute’ or ‘success’ and ‘sha’ means house). It was here that Kintaro Hattori produced his first clocks and these marked the beginnings of a company that was to become one of the world’s most important manufacturers of timepieces.

Throughout the 1890’s, the success of Seikosha’s wall clock business increased, and Kintaro looked to broaden the range of his business. In 1895, he created a pocket watch, the Timekeeper. It was a vital step forward, without which the future of Seiko would have been very different as it paved the way for Japan’s first ever wrist watch.

In the beginning of the Taisho Era, pocket watches were still very popular and there were only a few wristwatches imported to Japan. Kintaro, however, was determined to be ‘one step ahead’ and embarked on the ardous task of creating Japan’s first ever wristwatch. In 1913, he succeeded and the Laurel was produced. In the early days, the company was able to produce only 30 to 50 watches a day, but, for the first time, Kintaro had established a lead on the rest.

In 1923, the Great Kanto Earthquake struck and the company’s headquarters and the Seikosha factory all burned down. A fresh start had to be made. Just after the earthquake, the company had created an entirely new watch and it went on sale in December 1923. It was the first to carry the name Seiko, introducing the world for the first time the brand name that was later to become synonymous with precision and accuracy, innovation and refinement.

The Seiko Quartz Astron was introduced in Tokyo on December 25, 1969. It delivered unmatched performance. It was accurate to within 5 seconds per month, 100 times more accurate than any other watch and it ran continuously for a year, or 250 times longer than most mechanical watches. The quartz revolution had begun.

  1. 1. Came in a nice packaging2. Beautiful looking watch3. Better than the cement version in terms of looking4. 100% im comfortness

  2. The media could not be loaded.  Il pacco è arrivato in anticipo, l’orologio è perfetto.Segnalo che all’interno del pacco esterno (di dimensioni smisurate rispetto all’orologio che effettivamente sta dentro) non era presente materiale che attutiva eventuali botte, era praticamente libero. Però non ha ricevuto botte.L’orologio è perfetto, il corredo c’è tutto ed è nuovo, la garanzia è timbrata ma in bianco, quindi per l’assistenza è perfetto.Il cinturino è un nato, per cui è molto lungo ma.con un paio di tutorial YouTube sarà facile indossarlo bene. Ottimo feedback

  3. What did I like? Its a Seiko what’s not to like? They make the best watches compared to most manufacturers, they have taken the lead from the Swiss manufacturers. This watch is on par with my Alpinist which cost me twice the price of this one. It looks the part, easy to read keeping excellent time and has a huge reserve if worn continuously. Easy to set, quick date set, hacking feature,which I have to say is a very nice touch on this entry level timepiece. Well done Seiko on making yet another winner. Many people say Seiko all look the same, that’s because Seiko have got their act together and made winning designs. It even has an Hardlex Tm ( Seiko toughened glass) fitted. The finish is impeccable, down to the finest detail, ive looked at the watch under the loupe and see not one flaw. No wonder they are top dog in the watch industry.

  4. The media could not be loaded.  Absolutely lovely watch, love the lume and size, changed out the Nato for a ZULUDIVER Canvas, looks perfect

  5. Great field watch – fantastically precise dial – numerals and hour markers are in relief along with the brand a nice detail enhanced by the slight dome of the crystal. Another nice touch the numbers are coloured in a way to match the strap (beige/khaki in my case) all things I couldn’t make out from the pictures on line. Plus drilled lugs for easy strap change. A lot of watch for the money. Loses 11.5 seconds per day very consistently in this respect pretty good for the price.

  6. An Amazon price steel so l treated myself to this beauty which fits size wise the perfectlyHas military tool watch styling with l belive is the best looking watch face for a non issued watch.I collect military watches and this watch is great addition to my collection and will Get a lot of wrist time

  7. Inutile dire che la linea Seiko 5 è sempre una garanzia con un ottimo rapporto qualità prezzo. In particolare il modello SRPG35K1 è una ottima scelta per chi vuole un field watch meccanico automatico, con cinturino NATO, senza spendere tanto.L’orologio in sé è decisamente comodo da indossare, il cinturino NATO è buono ed è facile ripiegare la parte finale sotto le asole di metallo. La precisione è decisamente ottima per un orologio automatico in questa fascia di prezzo (e anche oltre).Ottima la presenza del meccanismo hacking, unica mancanza di rilievo è il vetro, che in questa fascia di prezzo potrebbe già essere in zaffiro invece che minerale.Non penso sia necessario tenere il SRPG35K1 in un winder, visto che la data si regola in un attimo, però per fosse interessato a farlo 650 TPD, non importa la direzione, è sufficiente.
