Automatic Seiko Watches
Seiko strongly believes that the wrist watch is an intimate accessory. The watches live in harmony and interact with the wearer and they also offer a reassuring and emotionally satisfying bond. Seiko's technological department focuses on creation of "Emotional Technology". Following are the 4 major technologies in Seiko builds their products.
1. Spring Drive
Spring drive movement is based on the foundation of all mechanical watch technology, a mainspring, but uses an entirely new system for time regulation. This delivers the equivalent of 1 second per day accuracy and uniquely features glide-motion hands that represent the continuous, even motion of time. This technology is termed as the Quiet Revolution in the watch industry.
In 1986, Seiko unveiled its first kinetic prototype. It was the first watch in the world to convert kinetic movement into electrical energy. This step made kinetic synonymous with environmental friendliness, high performance and long lasting convenience to the users.
Seiko automatic movement 6R20 is designed to place the Seiko firmly in the high quality mechanical market. The movement is exquisitely finished with an engraved rotor, polished edges to the bridges and hairline shading on the main surfaces.
Invented in 1969, this quartz movement revolutionized the conventional concepts of watches. This watch has crystal oscillator at its core for accuracy. The crystalline body of the crystal cut to a fixed shape has a characteristic to generate steady vibration if voltage is applied to it.Additionally, Seiko Watches has a reputation of creating limited-edition watches for explorers in extreme conditions. In this process, they have developed some extraordinary watches and routinely use their lessons learnt in later production models. As a example, they made "Landmasters" for trips to both poles (The GMT hand goes counter clockwise for Landmaster south pole). An amazing shrouded diver for commercial divers, a ceramic and titanium masterpiece for Mt. Everest and even a watch specifically designed for hikers of Japan's mountains to name a few.
Seiko watches products can be categorized into following 5 product ranges based on the technology they are built with and the users for whom it was targeted to.
