History of Watches
A watch is a small timepiece typically worn either on the wrist or attached on a chain and carried in a pocket, but wristwatches are the most common type of watch used today.

They evolved in the 17th century from spring powered clocks which appeared in the 15th century. The first watches were strictly mechanical. As technology progressed, the mechanisms used to measure have, in some cases, been replaced by use of quartz vibrations or electromagnetic pulses and are called quartz movements. The first digital electronic watch was developed in 1970.

The wristwatch was invented by Patek Philippe, in 1868, but only as a “ladies bracelet watch”, intended as jewelry.  Wristwatches gained in popularity during World War I, when officers found them to be more convenient than pocket watches in battle.
The first digital mechanical pocket watches appeared in late 19th century. In the 1920s the first digital mechanical wristwatches appeared.

The first digital electronic watch, a Pulsar LED prototype in 1970, was developed jointly by Hamilton Watch Company and Electro-Data.  When Sir Edmund Hilary climbed Mt. Everest (the first human to conquer the mountain) in 1953 he wore Rolex Oyster.

The Oxford Dictionary stated that the word “Time” is the most often used noun in the English language.

SEIKO founded in 1881, has always been committed to the art and science of time.
