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 Orange Dial Men’s Watch-SRPD59K1

  1. Can’t get enough of this watch, my others have taken very much a back seat.Size wise I have a medium size wrist and and it fits perfectly. It is rather large, thickness wise and I guess that’s due to being able to see the insides from the back.Was very easy to set up, once id read the instructions. Being automatic it does not appear to need a lot of manual winding, although I’d say I did wind it up every 3 days or so, or just because I can.The lume on this watch is amazing, it stands out like no other watch I have.This was my first Seiko, I can’t see it betting my last.Downside? Only one, and tbh is nothing to do with the watch. Its the watch box, its very cheap, looks like it was an after thought. Really I have a Timex watch that cost far less and the box is better quality.Would I recommend this watch, without a doubt!!

  2. The media could not be loaded.  Looks nice decent just awesom. Orange clr dial attarcting and looks unique. Super fully satisfied thanks to amazon recomended to this product.

  3. Attractive orange style reminiscent of DOXA. Not too garish as one might think and a good size for the wrist. Compared to my quartz only gains a few seconds a day. Pressed clasp but it would be unwarranted to expect more at this price. Otherwise subtle design and high legibility. No lume pip but bezel lines up with very little backplay! Applied indices and uncluttered dial with only three lines of text. Day and date complications at 3 oclock and no cyclops. Hardlex crystal and exhibition caseback. Nice heft to it but not overweight. Part of the Seiko 5 line-up and therefore well priced.

  4. This is the 4th Seiko I own along with a Kinetic SQ100, Monster Gen 1 and King Samurai and I really like it. I’ve never owned an SKX so I wasn’t going to compare but they are two different watches. SKX is a divers watch and the 5 Sports is more a fashion piece. End of.The orange sport is a very nice piece. The photos don’t do it justice, the dial really ‘pops’ in the light and there is this metallic orange on the bezel markers that really compliment the dial. The uni-directional bezel is lovely and firm on the turn and absolutely zero play. The crystal is Hardlex (Seiko’s own) and I’m not bothered it isn’t sapphire. My 8 year old Monster has Hardlex and there isn’t a scratch on it and that watch has taken bashing.The applied indices and logo look really good and match really well with the gold hour and minute hands. However, I fully expect the bezel to scratch easily as I believe it’s aluminium and it’s a soft metal. Lume is typical Seiko which means it’s brilliant. The overall readability and legibility is fantastic, very easy to read.Build quality is typical Seiko in that for every good there is probably a not-so-good! The chapter ring and bezel line up perfectly, dial is clean and there are no scratches or marks anywhere. The only real downside is the bracelet which I was expecting to be like my Monster and Samurai but it’s cheaper and quite squeaky. I’ll be changing to a NATO strap when I can because the squeak is very annoying. That isn’t to say it’s not comfy, it’s very comfy on the wrist and with 4 levels of micro adjustment you can get the perfect fit.Inside is the 4R36 (same as the 4R35 in my King Samurai but has day/date) so it isn’t amazing but it’s good enough. Hacking and handing winding are doable if those things are important to you.Overall, I really like it and will probably daily drive this as much as I can. I’ll definitely be buying more of the 5 Sports to expand the collection.*Update – switched to a nato strap. Looks epic*

  5. I purchased this watch in the first week of January 2020 and using it since then. SEIKO 5 Sports Automatic SRPD59K1 is a nicely made watch. I do have some affinity to orange dial automatic Seiko watch and this is a watch I love a lot. Nice finish as usual from Seiko. Polished high grade stainless steel case with see through exhibition case back which I like a lot. A reminiscent of Seiko SKX line this watch comes with hand wind feature and does hack which were missing in the SKX series. Can be worn with formal and in casual occasion as I am using it in both occasions. Strap can be changed very easily as it has access through the drilled lug. Great lume on the markers and hands. Bezel is not lumed. Great power reserve of about 40 hours. 100 meter Water resist. Hardlex mineral.Came in original Seiko box with stamped Seiko India Warranty card and all papers. The bracelet is not up to the mark so changed to a grey-beige Nato strap which looks great and planning to add a Stainless steel mesh type bracelet later on.The most pleasing part is the price of the watch which is very reasonable when compared to international market price. 5 star out of 5.

  6. I bought the sports with the orange dial and wow it just pops right out at you, it’s crazy how beautiful this watch is when you see it in person. It’s comfortable to wear and looks great. There are loads of video’s on youtube for these watches and they tend to be highly regarded and I’d agree. You get more than you pay for but don’t expect Rolex quality for Seiko 5 price.There are few minor gripes where the day marker and the bezel don’t line up very well. Accuracy is what you’d expect for an automatic in this price range but having a hackable movement means resetting the time every day or so is quick and easy.I’d recommend this for anyone wanting a quality automatic on a budget.

  7. Another quality watch from Seiko. Absolutely love these watches. You can feel the quality as soon as you put it in your wrist. Very good construction, the strap is adjustable and the clasp very secure. You could wear this watch and never take it off; water resistant to 10 ATM that’s around 100m so that’s water proof enough for me! The attention to detail is excellent, with watch having a glass back. Seiko have just done it again. Lovely watch, comfortable, accurate and easy to wear.
