The 1913 Laurel.
As more and more companies focused on manufacturing table clocks and pocket watches, Kintaro Hattori, who had foreseen the coming of the age of the wristwatch, continued to think further ahead of his competitors by beginning the development of a wristwatch of his own. In 1913, Seikosha began production of the Laurel. After the release of the Laurel, Seikosha made tremendous advances in its development of every wristwatch manufacturing technology, from design to micro-fabrication and machine tool manufacture. In 2014, the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers designated the Laurel as one of its “Mechanical Engineering Heritages” in recognition of its contribution to the development of mechanical technology.
