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 Blue Dial Men’s Watch-SRPD71K1

  1. Unfortunately watches have always been my downfall from a very young age. I have a collection of around about 15. My daily wearer is an Omega Seamaster 300. I also have a Breitling, a few Tag’s and some other higher end watches.I was not aware of the Seiko 5’s history and when I saw the new 2019 model it immediately caught my attention and I did some research and after a few days decided to buy. The watch price of £199.00 is considerably cheaper than I usually spend on a watch. The watch arrived last Saturday and I am really over the moon with it, I have always wanted a watch on a Mesh/Milanese strap and the Seiko has this. Its a beautiful looking watch and whilst I appreciate that the 2019 model is seen as a “downgrade” by many (100ATM) I love it. The only downside is that it does not have sapphire crystal glass but I suppose for £199.00 you cant have everything. I now need to try and kill of this addiction to watches !.

  2. Espectacular, reloj muy bien construido y con una estética muy cuidada, válido para casi cualquier muñeca (no es muy grande ) y con un funcionamiento automático contrastado que parece que funciona muy bien y que durará muchos años. Este modelo lleva una correa milanesa pero se puede cambiar fácilmente por otra tipo armis, nato o de silicona como la que le he puesto, la milanesa queda genial para dar un aspecto más retro y elegante y las de silicona o nato son más desenfadadas.Lo he comprado porque me apetecía tener más modelos automáticos, solo tengo uno y la verdad es que por los 228 € que costaba este (ahora ha subido), es una maravilla, muy contento, la verdad.Y respecto a Amazon, todo correcto, la entrega a tiempo y con el debido cuidado.

  3. Great look and great bracelet. This is a very nice diver-style watch (but not a real diver though…which is not a problem for me 🙂 )

  4. A beautiful watch, a perfect size on the wrist and has a good quality comfortable shark mesh Milanese bracelet.I bought it as a watch to wear for smart dress occasions, but I’ll be wearing the watch more often I think.The style chosen maybe a little encouraged by the fact the new James Bond watch has a Milanese bracelet.I really like the ability to manually wind the watch to keep the time when not in use. And the cream markers against the blue dial give the watch a classic look. A good purchase.

  5. No quality control issues with the piece I received. Chapter seems to be aligned properly. Delivered on time. However people with bigger wrist might find the watch band small (I have a normal sized wrist and most people will find it perfectly fits)

  6. The new seiko 5 a.k.a 5kx is visually similar to the Iconic skx. I am told there 27 models in this series. The watch has an upgraded movement from the 7S26movt., but the only real upgrade I see is that this watch has achieved somewhat bigboy status by having an open back case which is very appealing. But has lost the ability of a diver’s watch with only 100m water resistant. Seiko has deliberately done this so that customers looking for a dive watch will look at its prospex lineup.The watch is great to wear and own but it does not give you the satisfaction of owning a proper dive watch.

  7. This is a beautiful watch to which the photograph hasn’t done justice. The blue on the dial is of a dark and delicate shade holding a subtle contrast with the lighter blue on the bezel. The machining of the case is of the highest quality providing a delicate balance between matt and shiny areas. The strap is high-quality Milanese that can be easily adjusted at home. The timekeeping is, as expected, most reliable as the other Seikos in the family.
