Grand Seiko Luxury Watches Prices

Established: 1881

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 the designers and engineers was that Grand Seiko should be the ‘ideal’ watch with standards of precision, durability and beauty that would lead the world.

For over 50 years, Grand Seiko has been the story of dedication to perfecting the deceptively simple idea of creating the ideal watch.  Even with the changing technology, the spirit of the Grand Seiko has remained the same. The very first Grand Seiko model was produced in Suwa Seikosha (current Seiko Epson) in central Japan. Since the release of this watch in 1960, the Grand Seiko has continued to evolve and include additional complications including calendar functions. In 1967, the 44GS was released, being the first model to embody the exterior design concept of the “Grand Seiko Style,” which is still seen today. Through the years that followed, Grand Seiko watches were released for women, were designed to be very precise, and even featured both quartz and automatic movements. In 2002, for the first time in Grand Seiko history, the watch featured a fourth hand GMT function. The first Spring Drive Chronograph was released in 2007 featuring an accurate chronograph driven by a main spring. Still today, Grand Seiko continues to produce superbly accurate watches while maintaining the same spirit of the original Grand Seiko.

The release of the first Grand Seiko in 1960

From the start the idea was simple, but its realization was fraught with challenges. The idea was to build a watch that would be as precise, durable, easy to wear and beautiful as humanly possible. While Seiko’s Crown and other mechanical watches of the 1950’s were constantly improving and increasingly popular, the team assembled to create Grand Seiko knew that, given time and resource, they needed, and could, go further.

The first Grand Seiko was a major advance. The new caliber 3180 was accurate to within +12 to -3 seconds a day and offered a power reserve of 45 hours. It was the first watch in Japan to be compliant with the standard of excellence of the Bureaux Officiels de Contrôle de la Marche des Montres.

The Grand Seiko Self-dater, 1964

The 1960 Grand Seiko was a great success, but the design team was determined to scale new heights in pursuit of their goal of creating the ‘ideal’ watch. Just four years from the creation of the first Grand Seiko, the Grand Seiko Self-Dater was introduced. The emphasis was on practicality. It had a calendar function and improved water resistance up to 50 meters, and was designed to be as practical in the office as it was beautiful in the evening.
