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 Sports Analog Men’s Watch SRPD51K2 (Blue Dial, Blue Band)

  1. I had been looking at reviews to find a suitable replacement for my everyday watch. It really had to be a fit and forget type of watch which did not require expensive specialist battery replacement every few years.I needed to replace my faithful Eco-drive divers watch which had started to fail on dim days after 10 years of excellent service.I read about the excellent reputation of the Seiko 5 automatic movement, and as a full divers was no longer a requirement of mine, I decided to buy one.The build quality is very good, and the movement has more than enough accuracy for my needs. It gained about 30 seconds in seven days which I can live with. It’s slightly larger than the Eco-drive, and feels quite tough and well made.If you are looking for a watch that you can wear every day, but looks smart enough for occasions as well, then you should seriously consider this.Update March 2022Decided to follow the trend and ‘mod’ my watch by fitting the quality Miltat stainless steel strap made specifically to fit this watch.This takes it to another level!

  2. The media could not be loaded.  Beautiful watch ,have been wanting this watch for long time so when came on offer I purchased it and I wasn’t disappointed, it keeps perfect time ,so easy to adjust if needs be , I’ve had the watch under water for long periods of time with no problems , and it’s easy to read even in dark with the luminous hands and hour marks.only problem and it is easy to change is the nylon strap it let’s the watch down a bit but it is comfortable to wear. For me this watch is a delight to wear and worth every penny.

  3. Zuerst zur Uhr selbst, Top verarbeitet, gut rastender Lünettenring mit 120 Klicks, Sehr gutes Natoarmband und das klassische Design einer Kultuhr, der SKX von Seiko. Indizes und Seikoemblem sind erhaben. Leuchtzeiger leuchten gleichmäßig und sehr kräftig. Krone ist nicht verschraubt und auch nicht nötig, wer das braucht greift zur Prospex Serie.Jetzt komme ich zu den unschönen Dingen. Ich habe ein Retourenmodell erhalten. Klebefolien waren entfernt, die Uhrbefand sich nicht auf dem Kissen sondern lieblos in die Box auf die Seite gelegt, das Etikett war vom Band ab. Okay das sind nur optische Einschränkungen, warum der Erstbesitzer so mit der watch umgeht, verstehe ich nicht.Die Uhr zeigte dann auch noch eine Gangabweichung von mehr als 20 Sekunden plus/ 24 Std. Auch hier ergab ein Test mit Kompoass, dass die Uhr magnetisiert war, evtl. trug der Träger ein Magnetarmband oder hat die Uhr versehentlich auf einem Magnetverschluss abgelegt. Ich habe dann die Uhr entmagnetisiert. Jetzt läuft sie seit 3 Stunden bei 0 Sek. Konstant.Für die Uhr 5 Sterne, der Erstbesitzer erhält null Sterne für seinen schlampigen Umgang mit der Seiko.

  4. I’ve had numerous watches over the years and I’m usually a smartwatch guy but for a while I’ve looked at ‘proper’ watches. So after weeks and months of research I ended up looking at Seiko.This relatively new Seiko 5 line is just absolutely spot on. There are quite a few variations of this watch but I was drawn to the blue dial and as a lover of Nato watch straps, this version was the one for me.I’ve got quite large wrists (around 7.5 inches) so this watch looks less bulky on me than it does in just about every photo I’ve seen on other people’s wrists.The RRP is absolutely reasonable for what you get and the price on Amazon Warehouse that I paid was around £142 (used/new and it’s absolutely brand new). I’d happily have paid the current £169 and actually even the full price based on having the watch in hand.Looks really classy, feels expensive, the luminous markings are really impressive and on top of it all, it’s a bit special being an Automatic watch which is something I’ve never had and I know it doesn’t keep time as well as a Quartz battery powered watch but that’s kind of missing the point. Love it.

  5. Have only had it a week but so far, very happy. Chose this model to have the fabric strap as silastic and metal now causing allergic reactions on my wrist. Dial very clear, can be read at night, date and day function also very clear. Seems more accurate than my very expensive self wind Swiss watch that is advertised as the official timer at all the Grand Prix’s. I have not taken it off when I shower so seems water resistant and I plan to wear it for water sports such as swimming and sailing. So far so good, I would highly recommend this watch at this price.Post-script , a week after writing this review the watch just stopped! I am returning it to Amazon

  6. Bought to replace an Omega Speedmaster (see Watchmaster.com) as I couldn’t justify having so much invested in a watch, plus it made me too self conscious and wary, and I must say that the Seiko is a great replacement! Much more accurate and far easier to wear but obviously without the cachet of the Omega which is still the best looking watch ever, imho. Excellent value at £125, cannot be faulted.

  7. Really pleased with this watch. Looks good, and easy to read at night which is one of the reasons I got it as often work early and late in the day. Just needs irradiation for a minute or so prior to the onset of dark. Electronic watches with a light always seem indistinct to read easily.Not tried water resistance yet, but wasn’t bothered by rainstorms last night when walking the dogs.

  8. The media could not be loaded.  An absolute cracker of a watch… perfect If you are into watch stuff. and as first mech watch …Pro:1. Conversation starter2. Feel good factor – way up…3. Stress reliever – just keep looking at the display case back4. Sun burst blue display5. Nato strap – way better than Seiko chain strap6. Reliable 4R36 movt (hacking n handwinding)7. Date and day8. Super luminova..9. No need of update or a charger or a specific phone .10. ALWAYS ON DISPLAY.11. No eternal breakups if maintained well ..Cons1. 200 – 100 mts and no screw down crown .. unlike skx (not a deal breaker for me )2. No contrasting colour in movt. parts to give that extra umphhhh while looking at display case back (Too much to ask for this price ).3. Price bump up compared to skx …FINAL VERDICT.GO FOR IT and for god sake wear this with pride than an another screen on your wrist.LETS MAKE MECHANICAL WATCH GREAT AGAIN 😛

  9. Loverly watch wish I had got one sooner my first Seiko, no alignment issue, Loverly case finish. Good lume, easy to read, Not worried about the push pull crown and only 100mtrs of water resistance as I won’t be going diving with this watch, Also no sapphire glass but this is more shatter proof,Will be adding more straps this like a 1 pass or 2 piece nato. Might get a better metal bracelet too.
