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.

10 thoughts on “Seiko Analog Black Dial Men’s Watch-SRPD57K1

  1. This is a one day post review, might change later:This would be the best Automatic Watch if tight on budget and cannot afford a Swiss Made Automatic. This partially looks (somewhat similar) like a Rolex and partially like the 007 edition Omega Seamaster.These days, buying a watch from an Authentic dealer is very imp as cases of defrauding has increased. You couldn’t even spot a difference between a 1st copy difference and an original seiko unless you very careful observe the difference. Seiko site has no cross check as other to authenticate your watch’s originality. Hence its your duty to follow a checklist to determine your watch is original:1. Your warranty card should be filled with all the info and STAMPED.2. The model no. On your warranty card should match the watch’s back case along with the Calibre.3. Check Google for 5 more additional checks (back case sticker, logos, info on back case etc)Mine watch was received with a all info filled and stamped by seller on the Seiko International Guarantee Card which was included.Coming to the actual watch now:It’s very elegant and looks righ in every angle. Its heavy. Its dial may be 42 bt it is actually quite small to accomodate smaller wrists also. I felt the closing clasp of a lower quality to a watch of 17.5k!One defect in all SRPD modles is date/day is a bit misaligned when set. Dont worry, your watch is still original. It’s case with all watches (Seiko SRPD modles).One question remains, this watch’s original cost! As Seiko’s site is not disclosing for this particular model, Ethos shows 23500/-. Whereas on Amazon it shows 21500/- as well as on the watch box. I assume all Seiko SRPD modles have 23500/- original price tag.Since i thoroughly checked each points out there, i claim my watch as an original Seiko SRPD57K1.Good to buy. Please replace/return if your warranty card is not stamped and duely filled would be my advice.

  2. Accurate – running at +/- 1 or 2seconds per day for the past 6 months. ‘Sleeping’ position (overnight) is best dial up with mine. Lume is good, lasting over 3h. Maybe the bezel is out of alignment by a very tiny amount, but not a deal breaker.Compared with a similarly priced Orient Mako II: the movements are quite similar; both hand-wind and hack. However the Orient has a screw-down crown and 200m water resistance so it comes top in the comparison. The Mako does look a little more old fashioned though and has a more ‘cluttered’ dial. The bracelets on both watches are similar quality.Overall, this is a very good watch for someone who can cope with its weight and size.HOWEVER – the price of this watch is up and down like a fiddler’s elbow – one day £165, then £158, then £185 . . £175. I feel this is quite unacceptable; the variation is too fast and too great for exchange rate variation and suspect there’s an ‘algorithm’ that is malfunctioning.

  3. The watch came in good time and was nicely packaged as for the watch it’s a trusted Seiko with reliable movement

  4. It is a piece of legacy of SEIKO Automatic! Classic, Elegant..Buy if your budget permits

  5. Really love this watch, having had it for a few weeks now I can say that losing or gaining time isn’t an issue, once I had sized the bracelet it is very confortable and I have been wearing for days without discomfort.

  6. Lascio ai più esperti recensori di orologi la valutazione tecnica del prodotto, che tra l’altro condivido in pieno. Io mi soffermo Innanzitutto sull’estetica e, un colore bellissimo; non è proprio un nero profondo, sembra più un nero matto e quegli indici dorati gli danno un tocco di classe che lo contraddistingue.La cosa che mi ha sbalordito di più è stata il prezzo, pagato circa €90 in meno rispetto al prezzo di cartellino. Grazie Amazon per il regalo di Natale! Consegna prime come sempre precisa e puntuale.

  7. It is the first time I am wearing an automatic watch. I doesn’t know the specification how long it will last. But overall quality which I feel is awesome tike accuracy also good… Worth spending around the 18000 rupees for a automatic watch… It will give you a elegant look ..which looks very premium watch. In the picture watch seems to be very big but actually not…I did not experience in any negative.

  8. Erede dell’SKX, trovo che sia il giusto sviluppo. La corona non è a vite e questo lo rende comodo, se come me, avete più orologi e dovete ogni volta reimpostare l’ora. Criticato dalla community di appassionati per non essere un vero orologio da sub, mancando la certificazione iso, ma io, che con l’orologio non ci faccio neanche la doccia lo trovo un particolare di poco conto. Consiglio l’acquisto.

  9. Great looking watch, looks better in real life. Sits well on wrist, feels well made, great glow in dark feature that lasts all night. Goes very well with lots of different strap, I have it with black and camo green nato straps.
