The History of Seiko Watches

Seiko, one of Japan's trademark manufacturers, has been creating watches since 1881. The company has a long history of excellence, beginning with clock creations and continuing today.
Seikosha to Seiko: Early History

A Seiko pocket-watchSeiko began in 1881, under the name Seikosha. The company's factory produced wall clocks, and made its first pocket watch in 1895. In 1913, the company made its first wristwatch, the Laurel, which propelled the company to fame and success in Japan. The company debuted as Seiko in 1929, when it produced Japan National Railway's official watch. Since then, the company has been calling itself Seiko, and has been reinventing watch designs for practical, as well as fashionable, purposes.
Early Milestones

Seiko's signature watchesThroughout Seiko's early history, it hit a series of important milestones for its business and for the entire watch-making world. Most of these included inventions of exceptionally beautiful signature watches, for which the company would become known. In 1941, Seiko introduced the chronograph pocket watch. Seiko's first television commercial went on the air in 1953. The Grand Seiko, the company's signature watch, was introduced in 1960.
Leaps into Modern Style

From creating the first quartz digital watch, to modernizing the technology with the Spring Drive Chronograph, the company has been ahead of the curve. Its first major contribution to modern watch styles came in 1973, when it introduced the world's first six-digit quartz watch. Less than 10 years later, in 1984, it produced the first watch with computer functions, the UC 2000. Seiko stormed the 1990s with the first watch using LumiBrite, a non-radioactive material, and the Ultimate Kinetic Chronograph. Finally, in 2007 it began selling the Spring Drive Chronograph, with vertical clutch and column wheel.
Business Today
Seiko remains a top watch seller in Japan and around the world. The company covers more than 60 countries worldwide. In March 2008 the company reported employing 440 employees, and making a profit of five billion yen. The head office remains in Tokyo.
Awards and Distinctions

Most recently, in 2004, Seiko was awarded the prestigious IEEE Milestone Award.
