The 60 years history of Grand Seiko is a story on the spirit and mastery of artistry, known as Takumi, featuring their endless quest and pursuit of time in the soul place “Shizukuishi”. It was the determination to excel that brought about the birth of Grand Seiko in 1960. During its development and ever since, the idea that drove their designers and engineers was that Grand Seiko should be the ‘ideal’ watch with standards of precision, durability and beauty that would lead the world.
The first Grand Seiko was a big step forward. It was the first watch in Japan to conform to the standard of excellence of the Bureaux Officiels de Contrôle de la Marche des Montres. In its materials, manufacturing and design, Grand Seiko expresses the Japanese sense of time and respect for the natural world.
