Since being established in 1881, Seiko has contributed to society with one revolutionary product after another - starting with the production of Japan's first wristwatch in 1913 and including the creation of the world's first quartz watch in 1969.

Seiko has also been the official timekeeper at many international sporting events since the Tokyo Olympic Games in 1964. Seiko has been privileged to share moments of tremendous excitement with athletes and spectators worldwide. 

Today, while watches remain the heart of Seiko's business, its technological expertise in micro-engineering, metallurgy and mechatronics has caused the company to expand into many diverse fields including camera components, other precision instruments, eyeglasses, jewelry, as well as sports and toiletry products. 

In 2001, in order to be better able to offer even more attractive products to consumers around the world, Seiko's watch division became an independent company, SEIKO WATCH CORPORATION.

Watches are our business. Through them, we seek to share our pleasure and pride in production, giving you pleasure and pride in possession, and adding a touch of enchantment to every precious moment.
