SEIKO watch is one of the most common watch brands, and his exquisite and smart appearance makes many people like it very much. But for those who do not know the watch very well, there will be questions such as ‘What brand of SEIKO watch is it, and how much is it?’ SEIKO watch is actually a ‘Seiko Watch’ brand from Japan. The following watch home will introduce SEIKO watches, friends who are not familiar with this brand can come and take a look.
Seiko (SEIKO) is a famous Japanese watch company. Founded in 1881, the founder is Hattori Kintaro. The company’s original name was Hattori Timing Shop, which was changed to Seikosha in 1892. In 1924, the first Seiko watch was born, which opened a glorious page for Seiko watches. It is worth mentioning that Seiko not only manufactures watches, but also the largest watch movement manufacturer and supplier in Japan and South Korea, and is also the parent company of EPSON, a computer printer manufacturer.
Seiko and Casio also infused technology into watches and advocated the development of ‘humanized technology’. Humanized technology has created an interactive connection between watch products and the wearer. This is inseparable from Seiko’s belief that ‘watches are private friends.’ The best watch should have a tacit feeling that fits the wearer, and the functions provided by the watch can bring the wearer a sense of peace and reliability and emotional satisfaction.
The most proud of Seiko is Spring
The birth of the Drive movement. This movement is based on the dream of a young engineer, Akane Hawa: ‘How can I make a watch driven by a spring, with an accuracy of plus or minus one second per day, and a durable watch?’ So Akabane Haoka started researching in 1977. After countless failures, he finally realized this dream at the cost of 28 years. Subsequent to breakthrough technological innovations in each watchmaking process, Akabane and his team finally succeeded. In 2005, Seiko welcomed Spring
The era of Drive.
In the movement of a mechanical watch, the escape wheel is blocked once by the fork, and then released again after a tooth is blocked, and it repeats itself. This process achieves accurate division of the energy transmitted from the mainspring. The function of dividing time comes from the back and forth swing of the balance wheel, because each time the balance wheel swings, the fork shoe will perform the corresponding action to make the escape wheel skip a tooth. The direct reflection of the result is the jump of the second hand. While Spring
The mechanical energy generated by the mainspring of the Drive generates electrical energy from the system operation; the electrical energy activates the quartz crystal oscillator, and then the speed of the sliding wheel and the pointer is regulated by continuous and smooth electromagnetic braking. The sliding wheel rotates in one direction, thereby avoiding the wear and tear caused by swinging back and forth, left and right; Spring
The movement of the entire mechanism of the Drive movement always maintains the same direction. One-way rotation solves the old problem that the traditional escapement is easy to wear for 250 years. And makes the movement of the escapement system smooth and continuous.
Although Seiko watches are in the world’s watch rankings, they belong to five categories of people-friendly watches. However, there are also low-end models and high-end models. The prices of low-end models are more than 1,000 yuan. Usually the styles from 2,700 yuan to 3,500 yuan are the most popular. The price of Seiko high-end watches is very expensive, can reach more than 100,000 yuan.
