The history of Seiko is a 135 year story of innovation. From the very start, Kintaro Hattori was determined to be at the forefront of the industry and thanks to a continuous stream of industry-leading innovations over the decades, Seiko has never relinquished its position as a world leader in the technology of time.

The secret of Seiko's success lies in its ability to innovate in every area of the watchmaking. Today, Seiko is a true 'manufacture', making its own components, from advanced ICs to balance springs, and it is the only 'manufacture' to include all the watchmaking technologies; mechanical, quartz, Kinetic, Spring Drive and GPS Solar.
