Kintaro Hattori founded Seiko on a vision that his company should be “Always one step ahead of the rest.” This idea inspires our efforts to pursue continual technological innovation and ever-higher quality, and has been inherited by each and every person in the Group throughout the 134 years since Seiko’s foundation. In 2014, Seiko unveiled the Group slogan “SEIKO, Moving Ahead. Touching Hearts.” This slogan takes Kintaro’s vision of technology leadership a stage further; we seek to add a new sense of excitement and emotional engagement to our customers’ experience of Seiko. We are opening the way to a new generation of success through a challenging spirit that seizes new opportunities in the market and realizes technological innovation which thrills and excites.
