Seiko was established in 1881 when Kintaro Hattori opened his own watch and jewelry shop in Tokyo, Japan. In 1892, he began to produce clocks under the name Seikosha. Seiko is a Japanese word that can be translated as both Exquisite and Success. These values are clearly expressed in Seiko watches
The first watches manufactured under the brand name were introduced and could be found on sale in 1924. The company established its reputation for quality in manufacturing, making its own proprietary mechanical movements in Japan.
In 1969, Seiko revolutionized the watch industry with the Astron, the world’s first production watch that used a quartz movement. When first brought to market, the quartz technology was very expensive. The first Astrons were not cheap and could cost as much as a small car, but sold briskly because of their novelty and the fact that the quartz crystal oscillator was able to keep the watch accurate to within one minute per year. At first, the established watchmakers of the world (particularly the high end brands in Switzerland) didn’t follow Seiko’s lead in adopting the relatively cheap, quartz technology. This put them at a disadvantage, because Seiko quickly worked to reduce the cost of manufacturing the movements, and could soon market watches of remarkable quality at prices the established brands couldn’t. The so-called quartz revolution resulted in the demise of many established watch companies.
Today, Seiko is one of the world's premiere watchmakers, ironically, it sells many quartz watches, but also many with automatic movements. They’ve also pioneered hybrid movements, called Seiko Kinetic, that combine the self-energizing capability of the automatic watch with the accuracy of a quartz movement.
