Seiko was born in a small town in Tokyo, Japan in 1881 where entrepreneur Kintaro Hattori opened a shop repairing clocks and watches. 

Over the next few decades, ceaseless effort was poured into creating a constantly evolving watch offering, chiefly to compete with Swiss watches on the market at the time. 

Today, Seiko’s uniquely Japanese aesthetic is enhanced by an effortlessly smooth secondhand movement, which glides across the dial – this made possible by the Tri-synchro Regulator, a proprietary speed control mechanism exclusive to Seiko.
