Seiko's history began in 1881 when Kintaro Hattori established the K. Hattori retail and repair store. In 1892 Seikosha was established making 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).

A lug to lug length of 27.5mm and a thickness of a thin 8mm ensures a very comfortable fit on your wrist. A bevel-edged crystal sits above a deep blue dial. At 12 o’clock a square with chamfered edges sits above the printed Seiko. Delicate sword hands in white complete this fine eye-catching dress watch. On the reverse, a snap-off case back. Inside a Manually Wound Seiko Cal. 11A. The watch comes fitted on its original Seiko Asymmetric stainless steel bracelet. Its curvaceous shape winds around your wrist ending with a signed folding clasp.
Points of Mention
This watch is sold as "Watch Only" and therefore comes with no original Seiko box or paperwork. The watch comes paired on its original Seiko signed bracelet which will fit up to a 6 3/4inch wrist. The watch is from Circa. March 1975 and is sold in worn, vintage condition. The watch has been polished in its past but remains in all original and fair condition for its age. The watch comes with our 12-Months NON-Waterproof Warranty.
As funky as they get, one that works great on him or her who wants something a little unique, eye-catching, and just fun! The style reminds me of something Giugiaro would have created, an asymmetrical case and bracelet that flows with it, it truly is a unique look, and like most vintage Seiko you'll either love it or hate it!
