Seiko maintenance and care tips

If you would like your Seiko watch to last the test of time, it should be handled with care and attention. If your Seiko watch is water-resistant, we advise that it is cleaned with a soft dry cloth to preserve it from wear and tear. The metal bracelet can also be gently cleaned with a dry brush which will eliminate dust that may arise on the timepiece.

Seiko watches are crafted with the resistance to withstand splashes of water. If your timepiece is immersed in seawater, it should be rinsed with a soft cloth soaked in warm freshwater (making sure the crown is screwed down or pushed in) as this will release any salt deposits that may aggravate your skin.

TEMPERATURE

Seiko watches should not be exposed to extreme temperatures (above 60ºC/140ºF, or below 0ºC/32ºF). Extreme temperatures could damage the watches structure and may reduce the service life of the battery and affect the liquidity the watches lubricants. Both Seiko mechanical and quartz watches are delicate to severe changes in temperature. Therefore, it is advised to avoid them as much as possible.

SPORTS

Seiko suggests that while wearing their brand’s watch, users should remove them when playing games. Accidents can happen, and this will reduce the chance of your timepiece needing to be sent away for watch repair.

It is recommended that a Seiko watch is removed during sports activities such as tennis, golf or mountain biking, as this will protect it from vibrations that could damage the watches internal movement.

CHEMICAL PRODUCTS

Remove your Seiko watch before touching any chemical products. Chemical products can damage fine jewellery, which leaves many owners devastated. Direct contact solvents and industrial/domestic detergents are not recommended. Like many pieces of jewellery avoid spraying cosmetics and perfumes around your timepiece – not only could this tarnish the metal but it could potentially damage the watch’s seals.

WATER RESISTANT Seiko WATCHES

Water-resistant models should have their seals checked every 2 years. If you wear your watch while bathing, then this should be done annually to ensure it maintains its water-resistance.

You must check the water-resistance of your watch as it protects the movement from dirt, moisture and any deterioration when immersed in water. Baume and Mercier recommend that you have your watch serviced as like any watch the seals may be prone to wear and tear. Seiko suggest a water-resistance around every 12 months.

If your Seiko watch becomes submerged in water, do NOT pull out the winding crown or press the push buttons to change the date or start the chronograph. This movement could allow water to enter the case of the watch and could damage it.

If condensation forms we advise you contact as watch repair service to remove the condensation and renew the water-resistance of the watch.

SEIKO METAL WATCH BAND CARE

It is not uncommon for stainless steel bands to develop rust due to some corrosion or perspiration that may accumulate between the band’s segments.

Cleaning method

Rust can be avoided by wiping off moisture, sweat or dirt with a soft cloth when necessary. Seiko stainless steel watches can be washed easily apply neutral detergent with a small amount of water. If there is a heavy stain on your watch, use a toothbrush which will remove them. We recommend after washing, to wipe the gaps of the band segments with a towel and dry the entire watch thoroughly.

SEIKO LEATHER WATCH STRAP CARE

A leather band is more susceptible to discolouration and deterioration from moisture, sweat, and direct sunlight than metal bands/bracelets. Leather straps may tear or strap colours fade.

Avoid wearing a watch with a leather band while bathing, swimming and working with water even if the watch itself is water-resistant. Also, take care when wearing a watch with a light-coloured band, as stains will be more visible.

Cleaning method

Leaving your watch open to sudden changes of temperature can lead to damage, when not being worn keep your timepiece in a cool dark place, such as a drawer. Avoid leaving it in direct sunlight at temperatures above 60 degrees cause damage to the mechanism.

History of Seiko watches

Seiko has a very proud history and one of the most documented in the whole of the watch world. Seiko has been the timekeepers of world-famous sporting events from athletics to tennis. Seiko has also sponsored multiple Olympic games.

With such a rich history Seiko deserves to have a timeline that displays just some of their biggest achievements up until this date.

1881

Let’s go back to 1881 when the story of Seiko began. The brand was started by a 22-year-old entrepreneur, Kintaro Hattori, who opened a shop selling and repairing watches and clocks in central Tokyo. It was only eleven years later, in 1892, when he developed the ‘Seikosha’ brand.

1895

The brand continued to grow throughout the 1890s, and it was the success of Seikosha’s wall clock that the business kept flooding in. Kintaro, the founder of the brand, wanted to expand and looked to broaden the range of his business.

It was in 1895 that he created a pocket watch called the Timekeeper. This was a significant move for the brand and the step they needed to take to keep their business relevant in the 1900s. Without this move, the future of Seiko would have been very different as it paved the way for Japan’s first-ever wristwatch.

1913

This was the beginning of the Taisho Era, and pocket watches were still very much in demand. At this time there were only a few wristwatches imported to Japan. This was when Kintaro determined that the market was changing and wanted to be ‘one step ahead’ of his watchmaking competition.

This was when the founder created Japan’s first-ever wristwatch. In 1913, he succeeded, and it was created.

During this time, the company could produce only 30 to 50 watches a day, but, for the first time, Kintaro had established a lead on the rest.

1929

This is when the railway network expanded and Japan National Railways appointed Seiko as its official supplier. Train drivers often made wooden cut-outs on their consoles where the approved pocket watch would sit in the line of sight as they drove their trains.

1960

The first Grand Seiko model was produced. A small team of Seiko’s most experienced and skilled watchmakers was given the task of making the very best watch of which they were capable of.

This unique watch, Grand Seiko, was assembled to represent the pinnacle of Seiko’s excellence in mechanical watchmaking. The timepiece was constructed to deliver more accuracy, legibility, and durability than any other watch.

1964

Seiko creates stopwatches for the Tokyo Olympics. One thousand two hundred seventy-eight stopwatches were created in total.

1969

In 1969 this was the year that Seiko created the world’s first automatic chronograph with a ‘magic lever’. This Seiko timepiece had a column wheel and vertical clutch, and at the time it was a one of a kind design.
