Designer Spotlight on Seiko: High Precision Meets Luxury
March 25th, 2020
Seiko’s storied beginnings in Tokyo, Japan have added to the mystery, charm, and elegance in their innovative timepiece collections for men and women.
Born In Japan, Beloved By The World
Seiko’s story began in 1881 when 22-year-old Kintaro Hattori opened a shop to sell and repair watches and clocks. 11 years later, his success led to the establishment of the ‘Seikosha’ factory. In Japanese, ‘Seiko’ means ‘exquisite,’ ‘success,’ or ‘minute’ and ‘sha’ means house. From there, Seiko produced wall clocks, pocket watches, and Japan’s very first wristwatch, the Laurel, in a dazzling display of innovation.
Since then, Seiko has become synonymous with technological improvement and modernism in luxury watchmaking. Seiko produced Japan’s very first wristwatch equipped with a stopwatch in 1964 and the first Japanese diver’s watch in 1965. In 1969, Seiko created the world’s first quartz watch and the first GPS solar watch in 2012.
Seiko continues to transform the watch industry with originality in movements and designs without compromising its Japanese roots. Japanese design is characterized by elegance, simplicity, and an undefinable emotional reaction one gets when looking at a thing of beauty. Explore Seiko’s grand collection of luxury timepieces for men and women.
For the modern woman who values time and fashion, Seiko’s Tressia timepiece collection features a thin and metallic band and a classic round case. Its minimalistic and vintage-forward design is highlighted by its sumptuous and iridescent mother-of-pearl dial. Small diamond touches set the timepiece ablaze with brilliance and fire. Tressia’s solar-powered movement provides wearers with a deeper connection to the world.
The Seiko Core collection of women’s luxury timepieces has a varied and sophisticated style that harkens back to designs of the past. Find round, oval, and square, and elongated cases and radiant gold detailing. A mother-of-pearl dial and light diamond touches add to the timepiece’s quaint and delicate look.
