How to Know Seiko is a Great Brand

Some people are very brand conscious. They want a big name brand. Others want to tread off the beaten path and look for a lesser known brand that can be a conversation starter. Yes you want to purchase a reputable brand since this is an expensive watch, but personal taste comes into play as well.

Seiko is known the world over as a great name brand. While many timepiece brands originate in Europe, Seiko’s story of watchmaking expertise actually begins in East Asia. The story of Seiko began in 1881. It was then that a 21 year old entrepreneur, Kintaro Hattori, opened a shop selling and repairing watches and clocks in central Tokyo. Today, after more than 130 years of innovation, his company is still dedicated to the perfection that the founder always strove to achieve. You can enjoy this dedication to craftsmanship for yourself by wearing one of their watches.

There’s a Lot to Love About the 7S26

It’s important to note that you do not have to buy a specific watch brand. However, being aware of the best brands is helpful, which is why we encourage you to do a little research online before making your purchase. As you shop around, you will find many wonderful reviews about Seiko in general as well as the Seiko 7S26 specifically.

The 7S26 caliber is one of the automatic movements introduced in 1996. It is a non-hacking and non-winding mechanism, with incredible accuracy. The common number of jewels used in watch movements is between 17 and 21, and this one is equipped with 21 jewels- the very top. These jewels serve as bearings for the watch mechanism’s gears. Smoothened jewels are used because of their durability as a material and ability to minimize friction. It is one of the great diver watches as it holds over 40 hours of power reserve.
