Kintaro Hattori

  • 881 — Kintaro Hattori opens the watch and jewelry shop “K. Hattori” (Hattori Tokaiten in Japanese; currently named Seiko Holdings Corporation) in the Ginza area of Tokyo, Japan.
  • 1892 — Seikosha is established in Tokyo as the clock manufacturing arm of K. Hattori.
  • 1917 — K. Hattori becomes a company (K. Hattori & Co., Ltd.).
  • 1937 — The watch production division of Seikosha is split off as Daini Seikosha Co., Ltd. ( “Daini” = “The Second” Seikosha).
  •  
    • 1942 — Daiwa Kogyo, Ltd. is founded in Suwa, Nagano by Hisao Yamazaki.
    • 1943 — Daini Seikosha establishes a factory in Suwa for manufacturing watches with Daiwa Kogyo.

FROM 1874 TO 1917,  JAPAN HAD SHED HER ANCIENT OUT-DATED WAYS AND MOVED WITH UNEXPECTED FORCE INTO THE MODERN WORLD.

JAPAN  HAD BECOME A BUILDER OF HER OWN ARMAMENTS, SHIPS, PLANES AND HAD EVEN  IMPROVED UPON THE ADVANCEMENTS OF THE MODERNIZED WORLD.

IN FACT, AFTER THE 1904-05 ANNIHILATION OF TWO VAUNTED AND POWERFUL RUSSIAN FLEETS, SHE HAD BECOME A WELCOME TREATY PARTNER OF THE USA, BRITAIN AND THE WORLD AT LARGE.

BY 1917,  DAINI SEIKOSHA WAS SEEKING WESTERN TECHNOLOGY TO IMPROVE THEIR  CAPABILITIES TO PRODUCE MODERN WATCHES. THEY INVITED SWISS AND AMERICAN WATCH COMPANIES TO JAPAN. THEY DID WHAT THE JAPANESE DO BEST. UNDER THE BANNER OF POSSIBLE EXPORTS, THESE COMPANIES WOULD, IN FACT, TEACH THE JAPANESE HOW TO MAKE WATCHES THAT, BY THE 1950’S, WOULD COMPETE TOE TO TOE, WITH THE ENTIRE GLOBAL WATCH COMMUNITY.


AAAA-WALTHAM-JAPAN.jpg (91326 bytes)

IN 1917, JAPAN HAD AGREEMENTS WITH THE MOST ADVANCED COMPANIES IN SWITZERLAND AND THE UNITED STATES. THE ABOVE ADD IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO THIS OFFER AND ITS HISTORY. MANY SEIKOSHA MILITARY WATCHES CONTAINED WALTHAM MOVEMENTS! IN ADDITION, SWISS TECHNOLOGY AND FINISHING TECHNIQUES CAN BE FOUND IN THE LIMITED ANTIQUE VINTAGE JAPANESE TIME PIECES AVAILABLE TODAY, SUCH AS THIS SEIKOSHA SEIKO TIME PIECE WITH SEIKOSHA MOVEMENT THAT HAS ALL THE CHARACTERISTICS OF A SWISS OR AMERICAN TIME PIECE OF THE DAY.

THUS THIS 1917 ADVERTISEMENT DEMONSTRATES THE GENIUS OF THE JAPANESE MIND. FOR THE JAPANESE WOULD, AND PRODUCE SOME OF THE MOST AMAZING WATCHES AND WATCH MOVEMENTS.  THEY IMPROVED UPON THE TECHNOLOGY OF THE WEST. AS THE DEFEAT OF RUSSIA PROVED WHEN IT ASTOUNDED THE WORLD.


THE SEIKOSHA WATCH >
IMPERIAL – DELIKATA – SEIKO – NATION –

I SPEND MOST OF MY “SPARE” TIME SEEKING CANDIDATES FOR RESTORATION,. I DO NOT COLLECT THEM, I SELL THEM– SO I CAN DO IT OVER AND OVER.  I COULD NOT BELIEVE MY LUCK WHEN I DISCOVERED THIS ORIGINAL SEIKOSHA EMPIRE

AFTER THE RUSSO-JAPANESE  WAR [1905], WITH JAPAN’S STUNNING VICTORY, JAPAN WAS ON THE MOVE. HER EMPIRE ON THE BUILD -MOTIVATED BY A GROWING RIGHT WING IMPERIAL MILITARY  WING – JAPAN, WITH FULL SUPPORT OF THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY,  RECEIVED THE   RIGHT  TO “COLONIZE” KOREA.

IN REALITY, THE US-BRITISH AND FRENCH GOVERNMENTS SIMPLY HANDED OVER KOREA [1910] –WHICH HAD BEEN A RUSSIAN SEMI-COLONY–AS A “REWARD” OR THE LATE “SPOILS RESULTING FROM THE WAR.

IT WAS DURING THIS TIME THAT JAPAN SOUGHT WESTERN TECHNOLOGY IN A BID TO FURTHER WHAT WAS AN INCREDIBLE JOURNEY FROM A BACKWARDS TECHNOLOGY NATION OF 1875, TO A NATION THAT DESTROYED TWO RUSSIAN FLEETS IN 1905.

THE ONE AND ONLY POWERFUL SEIKOSHA COMPANY TRAVELED THE GLOBE ABSORBING ALL THE INNOVATIONS IN TIME KEEPING AND SOON BECAME THE MAIN WATCH AND CLOCK DRIVING AND PRODUCING FORCE IN JAPAN.

SEIKOSHA
* Almost every Japanese military timepiece seen to date has carried the mark of watch manufacturer ‘Seikosha’ or ‘K. Hattori’, the forerunners of the modern day Seiko Co. Ltd. Ginza Tokyo, Japan.
