An example of watchmaking from Japan.

Post by koimaster » April 16th 2018, 8:49pm

Seiko's line of luxury watches, Grand Seiko, was created in 1960 by Daini Seikosha and Suwa Seikosha which were subsidiaries of the Seiko Corporation. Their goal was to create a line of watches that could compete with Swiss watchmakers. The first generation of Grand Seiko cased a GS cal. 3180; the first chronometer grade watch produced in Japan. The 2nd generation Grand Seiko was released in 1963 made by Suwa Seikosha with the 57GS, a low beat hand-wound wrist watch. In 1966, Suwa released the first automatic Grand Seiko, the 62GS. Grand Seiko made a 20-year break from 1970 to 1990 directing their attention to quartz watches. In 2004, the Spring Drive movement was launched, a quartz regulated, mechanical movement.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
