Celebrating the 110th anniversary of Seiko watchmaking, a new Presage creation pays homage to Japan’s first wristwatch. The history of Seiko began in 1881 when Kintaro Hattori opened a shop in Ginza to repair and sell timepieces. In 1892, he opened a factory called Seikosha to produce his own clocks.
Ever since its introduction in 2020, the creative combination of Japanese culture and modern design has been a central feature of the Seiko Presage Sharp Edged Series. Today, two new creations join this series and pay homage to the enduring longevity of Kabuki, a Japanese form of theater that has its roots in the 17th century Edo period and is still popular today. These watches have been designed in collaboration with Ebizo Ichikawa, one of Japan's most prominent and influential Kabuki actors.
Never before in the company’s history had there been a period of such creativity and achievement. From the first Grand Seiko in 1960 to the automatic chronograph in 1969, the sixties was a decade of important advances in both technical and design development that laid the foundation for the company’s future success in the prestige watch arena. Alongside Grand Seiko, one other series in particular demonstrated the company’s ability to create mechanical watches with high accuracy. It was called King Seiko and, in addition to its precision, it offered a powerful yet graceful design that symbolized the high quality of its construction. 2021 marks the 140th anniversary of Seiko’s foundation and a re-creation of the second series of King Seiko, known as the King Seiko KSK, will be released in celebration of this landmark.
The Seiko Presage Sharp Edged Series introduces a timepiece in collaboration with Zero Halliburton, a premium quality travel-luggage brand renowned for its durability, reliability and cutting-edge design. Inspired by the brand's next-generation "Pursuit Aluminum Series", the watch incorporates a deep blue color that graces the series' travel wear. The limited edition watch captures the refined artistry and practicality that underpin both series.
This new watch joins the Seiko Prospex Save the Ocean series in support of several different marine conservation initiatives, one of which involves contributions to the National Institute of Polar Research, which is based in Tokyo.

Ever since Seiko’s first diver’s watch was introduced in 1965, the company has continuously pushed back the boundaries of what diver’s watches can offer. Today, Seiko introduces in the Prospex collection two modern re-interpretations of landmark timepieces from 1965 and 1970 that are presented on special fabric straps designed and manufactured expressly for diver’s use.
Seiko Presage welcomes a new series that captures the vintage feel of a Seiko milestone watch combined with the traditional watchmaking skills for which the Presage collection is renowned. The new Seiko Presage "Style60's" series design takes its inspiration from the Crown Chronograph introduced in 1964.
