Seiko is easily one of the most popular and recognizable watch brands in the world. Founded more than a century ago in the late 1880’s, this Japanese watch brand came into world prominence with the debut of the Grand Seiko automatic watch in 1960. This classic men’s watch offered precision craftsmanship and affordability in comparison to the costly Swiss-made models of its era.
In 1969, Seiko introduced the Astron timepiece, the world’s first quartz watch. Several years later, Seiko followed with the first quartz powered chronograph. Seiko is also one of the first watchmakers to introduce digital watches with their six digit dial quartz timepieces in the early 1970’s.
This innovative horological spirit continued in 1989, when Seiko introduced the Kinetic quartz watch, the world first’s quartz watch that relied on the power and movement of the wrist to remain operating without the battery having to be replaced. The Kinetic hybrid movement was not only revolutionary and economical it was also environmentally friendly, since the battery inside does not have be replaced or discarded.
More recently Seiko added Solar watches to their assortment. Similar to the brand’s Kinetic timepieces, Seiko Solar quartz watches have built-in solar chip panels that reflect sunlight or any light source to remain powered and will never require a new battery.
