In 1877, on the age of 18, Kintaro Hattori set up business repairing the Western-style clocks that were becoming more and more popular in Japan. By 1892, Hattori used to be manufacturing his own clocks in a factory he known as Seikosha, from the words “seiko” meaning “exquisite,” “success,” or “miniature,” and “sha” meaning “house.” The company grew and prospered, producing its first wristwatch in 1913 and launching the Seiko brand in 1924. Technological innovation has all the time been a driving force within the company’s history. Key milestones include Seiko’s introduction of the world’s first quartz watch in 1969, and its successful launch, in 1988, of the Kinetic, the world’s first battery-free watch with quartz accuracy. Recognized for its technological excellence, Seiko has provided timekeeping products and services for the Olympic Games and the World Cup Soccer Championships. As of late, the Seiko brand continues to stand for cutting-edge technology, in addition to superior quality and refined design.
