Founded in 1881, Seiko began as a humble jewelry and clock store and has since grown into the watchmaking juggernaut that it is today. If the technology for a watch they wanted to make didn’t exist, Seiko made it happen under their own roof. Since Seiko is vertically integrated, they can customize nearly any part of their watches to their own design and specs in house. From the first true dive watch, to one of the first automatic chronographs, and completely new ways of powering a watch like Spring Drive, Seiko’s list of horological achievements is lengthy. They’ve done everything all the way down to creating their own lab-grown and regulated quartz crystals for timekeeping.
With several different subsidiaries under the company umbrella, there’s a Seiko timepiece for nearly every activity imaginable and every wrist, from rock-solid dive watches to classic high-end dress pieces.
Seiko’s Presage lineup of watches brings you classically designed watches that are ideal for everyday wear, especially around the office and more formal occasions. With intricate dial details and designs, the Presage lineup represents a value-driven group of watches reminiscent of the Grand Seiko lineup, but at a more affordable price point. Sleek case designs, open heart views of the movements, and vintage Seiko styling represent the best of what the Presage line has to offer.
Prospex (a take on professional specifications) represents Seiko’s hard-wearing tool watches. If you see the Prospex “X” on the dial, you know that this watch is ready for action. From rock-solid divers to adventure-ready field watches, these watches are some of the toughest that Seiko has to offer. High degrees of water resistance, durable screw down crowns, heavy applications of lume, and bold legible dials make up the Prospex lineup. Since the release of the world’s first dive watch in 1965, Seiko continues to push the boundaries of what an adventure tool watch should be over fifty years later.
