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 Analogue Men’s Watch (Blue Dial)

  1. Swill is a reputed brand worldwide and its watches are one of the finest in the world. It’s a great looking watch which is perfect for daily use. The dial is beautiful, lume is amazing, fits perfectly on smaller wrist.

  2. The media could not be loaded.  My first automatic & I jus luv it….my everyday watch…❤️

  3. Let me just start by saying that this is a very beautiful watch and unlike anything else in it’s price range.This is my first automatic watch and I’m very happy.The 4R36 movement is regarded highly by watch reviewers and I purchased this watch after watching many reviews on YouTube and doing a lot of research. The best thing about this movement is that we can hand wind the watch and it also supports hacking which is difficult to be found in a watch of this price.The blue dial looks gorgeous and only from some angles looks black sometimes.It’s a bit more dark than expected.I have to get the links adjusted from a local watch shop as it is a bit loose.I got it for 14k during the Amazon Great Indian Festival.I am writing this review after just 1 hour of receiving the watch.It is advised that you set the date, day and time only after reading the manual guide or else you can break the watch from inside.The lume is not that strong to be honest.I had to recharge it through my phone’s flashlight but after sometime it was gone again and I couldn’t see the watch indices in the dark.Also I am not happy with Amazon as I received the product 8 days after ordering. The delivery was super slow for some reason.I live in Jabalpur and normally it takes around 2-3 days or 5 days at maximum. I’m extremely disappointed in Amazon.And also the warranty card of the watch was not stamped and dated. The seller said that we can claim warranty by showing the invoice received from Amazon and matching the serial number which is unique for every individual watch but still I’m not happy with this thing.I have read somewhere on the internet that Seiko doesn’t give warranty if the warranty card is not stamped. So this is not a good thing for the seller (Vee Ess Sales Pvt. Ltd.).But because of the warranty card issue and slow delivery by Amazon , I don’t want to reduce the stars on this review because the watch definitely deserves 5 stars.Overall I’m happy and I think whoever is looking to buy an automatic watch between 10k-20k range should go for it without thinking much.

  4. I have had 2 Seiko watches previously which I really liked and this model did not disappoint. It looks great and the dark blue face appears to change colour slightly in different lighting conditions. What I really like is the movement, especially the fact that the second hand “sweeps” in a continuous movement, rather than jerking second by second. This is a feature normally found in more expensive watches like Rolex or Omega. A bonus as far as I am concerned. The stainless steel strap is comfortable and fits perfectly with a secure clasp. It does permit slight adjustment on the clasp itself, rather than removing links.All in all a great purchase at the price available on Amazon.I have only owned this watch for a short time, so cannot really comment on the accuracy of the time-keeping, but if previous Seiko watches are to go by this will be very accurate. Same goes for scratch resistance and water resistance.

  5. Clear face, easy to see hands and hour markings. Keeps good time. Bracelet links easy to take out to reduce the size to my wrist using one of the cheap kits you can buy on the web. Very happy with watch.

  6. My wife ordered this for me as a birthday gift. It’s the perfect starter watch for an elder millenial like me, who has never owned an automatic watch before. The blue dial is gorgeous and the size is perfect – not too big or small. The strap is not exactly the best quality, but you can change it if you don’t like it. The one surprise for me was that the watch felt heavier than I expected, for its size. Fit is very comfortable and the smooth sweep of the second hand is pleasing to watch. There is a fair bit of lume on the markers and the hands, but it loses its charge quite rapidly. Just 5 minutes are enough to get rid of the luminous effect.The watch tends to lose time (about a minute over 5-6 days), so it isn’t the best in terms of accuracy, but it’s pretty par for the course at this price level for automatics. I just set mine to about a minute ahead when I reset it. The only other note is that the off-center winder tends to squeak a little when I hold the watch to my ear and move it around (holding the belt).All in all, it’s a pretty good watch. I would certainly recommend it for anyone getting their first automatic watch.
