The idea was to build a watch that would be as precise, durable, easy to wear and beautiful as humanly possible. The release of the first Grand Seiko was in 1960. With the new caliber 3180 accurate to within +12 to -3 seconds a day with a power reserve of 45 hours, it was the first watch in Japan to be compliant with the standard of excellence of the Bureaux Officiels de Contrôle de la Marche des Montres. Determined to scale new heights, in 1964 the Grand Seiko Self-Dater with an emphasis on practicality was introduced. It had a calendar function and improved water resistance up to 50 meters, and was designed to be as practical in the office as it was beautiful in the evening.

Throughout the decade, the Grand Seiko collection grew and new calibers were continually introduced with rapidity. In 1967, Grand Seiko unveiled the 62GS, the first automatic Grand Seiko, followed in 1968, by the automatic 10 beat 61GS and the manual 10 beat 45GS. From the first Grand Seiko quartz watch in 1988 to the debut of the first Spring drive in 2004, Grand Seiko has left no stone unturned in terms of functionality, practicality and aesthetics. A Japanese brand that has truly revolutionised watchmaking.
