PROSPEX, ASTRON, PRESAGE AND 5 SPORTS COME TOGETHER IN CELEBRATION OF SEIKO’S 140TH ANNIVERSARY.

When Kinatro Hattori founded his company in 1881, he was just 21 years old. During his fifty years at the helm, Seiko became the leading watch company in Japan, with its own design and production facilities. This achievement was a direct result of his single – minded vision that Seiko should always be ” one step ahead of the rest”. His words resonate still and continue to inspire Seiko today. In celebration of Seiko’s 140th Anniversary, Kintaro’s vision is now realizes in a series of four limited edition watch, that together, show the range of Seiko’s watchmaking expertise, from automatic to GPS Solar.
