History Behind The Seiko Selection Collection

Equipped with the latest Solar Radio technology, the Seiko Selection houses some of the famous Japanese watchmaking company's latest innovations. Since 2017, the Seiko Selection has been offering solar-powered watches to watch lovers looking for daily-wear and waterproof watches. Despite the masculine appearance of most models in the collection, the Seiko Selection is not focused on Seiko men's watches. In actuality, the release aims to cater to all kinds of interested customers.

Before reaching its recent claim to fame, Seiko started when 22-year-old Kintaro Hattori decided to open a watch shop that sells and repairs different timepieces in 1881. Thanks to his hard work and motivation, Hattori eventually upgraded his humble watch shop to the Seikosha factory after 11 years. After producing its first pocket watch in 1865, the company gained immense popularity for releasing the first wristwatch made in Japan, the Laurel, in 1913.

In 1923, the Seikosha factory was one of the casualties of the Great Kanto Earthquake. In hopes of making a fresh start, the famous watch company produced the first watch with the Seiko brand in 1824. This move eventually catapulted the brand's continuous success in the international market of watchmaking.

Fast forward to 2017, Seiko got the attention of watch enthusiasts with its latest collection, the Seiko Selection. The Japanese brand gained fame over the years for innovations such as Diashock and for producing the first diver's watch in their country. On the other hand, the Seiko Selection features not just the company's first set of solar-powered watches but also its first variety of timepieces for motorists on the go. Other limited-edition releases also cater to video game fans who love Pokémon and Monster Hunter.
