The Seiko Museum was opened in 1981 as part of a 100th anniversary project celebrating the establishment of K. Hattori & Co. Since then, the museum’s primary role has been to compile archive materials related to time and timepieces and present key products representing developments through the various periods of history.

Next year will welcome the 100th anniversary of Time Memorial Day. On this momentous occasion, as a participant in the timepiece industry, I would like to take the opportunity to inspire even more people to a greater curiosity in timepieces by increasing our efforts to enlighten people about time and timepiece culture and to spread those traditions.
