About Us

The Seiko Museum already has a history of more than 40 years.

It was established in 1981 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Seiko, with the goal of gathering, preserving, and studying various materials and samples related to “time and timepieces.” In 2020, with the occasion of the 160th anniversary of the birth of Seiko’s founder Kintaro Hattori, the museum was relocated to the Ginza district, the place where Kintaro Hattori was born, started his business and established K. Hattori & Co. In Ginza, a special place for Seiko, the museum exhibits not only valuable archive materials on the history of Seiko’s products, but also a wider scope of the history of timepieces in general, from sundials to wadokei (traditional Japanese clocks).

In April 2024, we newly opened the Grand Seiko Museum on the 6th floor. This space will naturally deepen the empathy for Grand Seiko's history of development and evolution as well as its craftsmanship, and will satisfy many Grand Seiko fans from around the world.

We eagerly look forward to your visit.
