Grand Seiko

From the very beginning, Grand Seiko has been pursuing the essential characteristics of a watch: precision, beauty, legibility. Its design reflects the unique Japanese sense of beauty. The brand will continue to reach new heights as a global brand.

About

Grand Seiko traces its origins back to two specific Seiko models, the Lord Marvel (1958) and the Crown (1959). The Calibre 3180 movement that signalled the birth of Grand Seiko in 1960 combined the two innovations in each watch (a movable hairspring stud for the former and the larger balance wheel and mainspring barrel for the latter) and achieved high and competitive accuracy in the luxury watch market. The timing of Grand Seiko’s launch was significance, since it coincided with the liberalisation of wristwatch imports in Japan in 1961 and the development of high-quality watches under the Grand Seiko brand name equipped the company for international competition. At Baselworld in 2017 Grand Seiko was spun off from Seiko as an independent brand.
