As an official supplier we offer a large range of Seiko watches in store varying in style, size and movements.
The start of it all
The story of Seiko begins in 1881 when Kintaro Hattori founded a clock repair store in central Tokyo.
Just eleven years later his company made its first clock and, in 1895, its first watch.
Today, with Kintaro's great grandson, Shinji Hattori at president, Seiko Watch Corporation is still dedicated to the perfection that the founder always strove to achieve.
Today, Seiko’s advanced quartz technology has made possible a watch that has an alarm, a chronograph and Perpetual Calendar.
With Seiko's passion, the Seiko Quartz has brought innovation to the history of watches.
The quartz watch, developed in 1969, revolutionised the conventional concept of watches. This is a watch that has a crystal oscillator at its core for accuracy. The crystalline body of a crystal cut to a fixed shape has a characteristic to generate steady vibration if voltage is applied to it. Through the ages, the idea has existed that this crystal-specific electrical property is used for a crystal oscillator to be the standard of timekeeping accuracy of watches. However, to take advantage of quartz crystal, whose excellence had been demonstrated in terms of accuracy, in a small world “watch,” there were many barriers that had to be overcome.
It was at the 1986 Basel Fair that Seiko unveiled its first Kinetic prototype. Introduced under the trial name of 'AGM', it was the first watch in the world to convert kinetic movement into electrical energy. It was the first step in a development that, 20 years later, has made Kinetic synonymous with environmental friendliness, high performance and long-lasting convenience to a generation of users worldwide. From the launch in 1988 of the first commercially available watch (then under the new name AGS) until today, over eight million Kinetic watches have been sold (as of 2007).
Seiko automatic movement 6R20. This high grade caliber is designed to place the Seikofirmly in the high quality mechanical market. The 6R20 movement is made of parts, all of which except rubies, are produced and assembled by SeikoInstruments Inc. The movement is exquisitely finished with an engraved rotor, polished edges to the bridges and hairline shading on the main surfaces. The high beat (28,800) movement delivers accuracy of -15~+25 seconds a day and the Spron 510* mainspring generates a power reserve of more than 45 hours.
