Someday all watches will be made this way. Founded in 1881, by Kintaro Hattori, Seiko has been manufacturing progressive and innovative watches for over a century. Seiko has contributed to society with one revolutionary product after another - starting with the production of Japan’s first wristwatch in 1913 and including the creation of the world’s first quartz watch in 1969. Seiko believes that the wristwatch is an intimate accessory. The best watches live in harmony and interact with the wearer, and their functions offer a reassuring and emotionally satisfying bond.
