Seikos history began in 1881 when Kintaro Hattori established the K. Hattori retail and repair store. In 1892 Seikosha was established to make wall clocks. 1895 saw the production of their first pocket watch. 1913 saw the launch of their first wristwatch, the Laurel. In 1924 the first Seiko was manufactured. Daini Seikosha (now Seiko Instruments Inc.) was established in 1937. Seiko was listed on the Tokyo stock exchange in 1949. The Suwa factory became independent and formed Suwa Seikosha Co., Ltd. (now Seiko Epson Corporation in 1959). In 1956 Seiko launched Marvel as their first true in-house-made watch; they continued to make this watch until 1959. Japan’s first chronograph watch was introduced for the 1964 Tokyo Olympics; it was called the Seiko Crown Chronograph mono-pusher. Not stopping there Seiko launched Japan's first true divers watch the Seiko Diver’s 150M fitted with the automatic Caliber 6217 which later was given the nickname “62MAS” by collectors. The company name was changed to the Seiko Corporation in 1990. Innovation at Seiko continues today with GPS Solar watches.

Elegant dauphine hands complemented by a blue sweeping second hand complete this sophisticated dress watch. On the reverse a screw-down exhibition case back.

Incredible dial, super reliable movement, great proportions, and all under £300? There really isn't an awful lot to say about this watch other than it's a no-brainer! I would highly recommend this watch as a gift to a gentleman or lady who you want to get into watches, it looks beautiful and the exhibition case back will draw them in, plus it looks far more expensive than the price tag would lead you to believe!
