In 1881, at the age of just 21, Kintaro Hattori set up a company with the dream of making timepieces of distinction. SEIKO crafted its first mechanical watch in 1895. Ever since, SEIKO has built a tradition of continuous innovation that has enriched luxury watchmaking. SEIKO invented the quartz chronograph in 1983 and has timed world class sports for 50 years.

SEIKO SOLAR. Since 1881, SEIKO has been dedicated to expanding the horizons of watchmaking and continues to innovate with Solar Power. So efficient is SEIKO Solar’s harnessing of energy that it converts all types of light into energy and never requires a battery replacement. The new SEIKO Solar is high-durability and a bright idea that is good for the planet.
