For over half a century, Seiko has been at the forefront of world sport, supporting international events, including six Olympic Games, four soccer World Cups and twelve athletics World Championships.
Since the Tokyo Olympic Games in 1964, Seiko has proudly assisted international sport with world-leading timing technologies and services. Today, Seiko supports a wide range of sports, from track and field athletics (IAAF) to sailing (The 49er and 29erXX Associations). Whatever the sport, Seiko's tradition of excellence in sports continues.
In 1985, the IAAF invited Seiko to be its timing partner for all its major international athletics championships. Seiko has provided timing systems and personnel to no less than 10 World Championships, 5 Indoor Championships and many other international class events. At major championships, Seiko's team will comprise over 40 skilled and full time engineers.
Seiko and PADI share a passion for ensuring the safety and enjoyment of divers and for protection of the marine environment, so a partnership felt very right. Seiko is proud to announce its support to PADI and, in particular, Project AWARE™, a global movement of scuba divers working to protect the ocean planet - one dive at a time.
