Seiko Watches

Seiko is probably the world’s most popular semi-profile watches in terms of price although it produces high quality watches. The brand was among pioneers of the Japanese quartz technology, which has put the whole Swiss watch making industry in danger at one point of time. Let us look at the history of this outstanding Japanese watch brand together with its availability and selling points in South Africa.



Seiko is an independent holding that produces watches, clocks and musical instruments, among other electronic devices that are overly popular in the world. The company was founded in 1881 by Kintaro Hattori who has opened his first watch and jewellers store in the Ginza district of Tokyo. Mr. Hattori later changed the name to Seiko-Sha that comes from the Japanese word “remarkable”. The first Seiko watches were produced in 1924 and the Astron, the world’s first quartz watch was introduced in 1969. In 1985, Seiko joined forces with Orient Watches. Today Seiko deals with a huge collection of watches and it has created its high profile watch collection that introduces mechanical and complicated chronograph models as well. Seiko is also famous for producing its watches totally in-house, alongside all of its parts, components and movements.

Although Seiko has become famous for its quartz watches, today, the brand also produces mechanical watches, thanks to the forever-trending passion for classic watch movements on a high level among the fans of high profile watches. As per price, Seiko has perhaps the most diverse collection in the world. You can buy a Seiko watch from roughly ZAR 450, when its high profile models cost the same as the Swiss watches. Seiko has great attention to all detail and it deals with specialised water sport, marine and adventurers’ watches. Seiko watches are sold all around the world.

Some of the most outstanding watches of Seiko include the following:
A359 5040 Sports 100 Chronograph released in 1981: is one of the most outstanding chronographs ever produced.

Luxury Collection: Seiko Grand Quartz, produced in 1978. Other notable models of this collection include the “Credor," and "King Seiko models.

The Seiko SBDX001 Marinemaster Professional Diver’s is one of the most widely used watches among scuba divers and mixed-gas divers with it being water resistant up to 300 metres.

Today, Seiko generates great sales thanks to its kinetic watches that combine the attributes of quartz watches with their self-energising features. Seiko has around 10 major collections with each one containing dozens of different models. Kinetik is the very first watch that is powered by the human movement itself.

Seiko watches are widely sold in South Africa in a large number of stores. The South African representative of the company is Treger Brands, with its centre located in Sandton Johannesburg. Treger has its stores and selling points in every shopping mall in South Africa, in almost each one of the larger cities.
