New to the international market,
but with half a century of successful history in Japan,
Grand Seiko is to be launched worldwide in October, 2010.
At Baselworld, 2010, SEIKO WATCH CORPORATION announced its intention to make Grand Seiko available to the world market. The preparations are now complete and Grand Seiko will be released in October in about 20 markets in Europe, N. America, Asia, the Middle East and Oceania.
The Grand Seiko brand
Since its launch exactly 50 years ago, Grand Seiko has been the very best of SEIKO. Inspiring its birth was a very simple and beautifully pure idea; Grand Seiko was to be more accurate, more durable, more legible and easier to wear than any other watch in the world. Today, Grand Seiko is a luxury brand that offers timepieces made by master craftsmen in SEIKO’s two exclusive watchmaking studios, using exclusive movements and the highest grade materials. Each Grand Seiko watch is instantly recognisable because of its simplicity of form and its understated elegance. From the very first Grand Seiko watch in 1960 to the latest collection of today, every Grand Seiko has shared the functional beauty and design purity that has always been its hallmark. Grand Seiko is, simply, the very best of SEIKO.

The Grand Seiko website

To open the universe of Grand Seiko to the world, a new English-language website has been created which gives extensive details of the brand’s history, its calibers, its collection and its availability. grand-seiko.com is the new home of the brand.
