Seiko Holdings Corporation, more commonly known as Seiko is a Japanese holding company. The company has multiple subsidiaries; jewelry, clocks, electronic devices, semiconductors, and other optical products are manufactured and sold. One thing they’re well known for is their watches. A popular collection is their Seiko Presage watches.
The brand produced its first watch in 1924. These Seiko watches were initially produced by two different subsidiaries which enabled the company to improve technology and reduce the risks and competition. These timepieces are produced entirely in-house, including every single component that was being used. Seiko was the first company to ever produce a quartz watch in 1969 when it introduced the Astron. Later, the company went on to introduce the first quartz chronograph.
