Martin Luther King, Jr. reminds us that, “We are not makers of history. We are made by history.” In the case of Seiko, this holds true to the brand’s origins. Seiko was established in 1881 and has continuously contributed to society over the years with its inventions. The first was Japan’s first ever wristwatch which was made in 1913.
The brand went on to gift the masses with the world’s first quartz movement watch in 1969. While the Seiko name is more often associated with timepieces, its superior technological expertise in mechatronics, micro-engineering and knowledge of metallurgy has enabled the brand to branch out into different fields. The Seiko portfolio of products also includes camera components, jewellery, eyeglasses, sporting goods, toiletry products and various precision instruments.
Armed with an aim to bring more attractive designs to consumers, Seiko’s watch division became an independent company in 2001. The company is now known as Seiko Watch Corporation. As a company that deals with watches as a business, Seiko strives to bring you timepieces that are worthy of possession, adding a touch of enchantment to your everyday life.
