The ideal watch
The first Grand Seiko was born in 1960.It was the work of a team who decided to create what they imagined as 'the ideal Watch' with standards of precision, beauty, legibility and durability, that would lead the world. Endorsed by the bigger balance wheel, it was the first watch from Japan to exceed the rating from the Bureaux Officiels de Contrôle de la Marche des Montres, and was sold with the rating certificate. The magnificent appearance quite suitable for the name 'Grand' never fades even after more than a half century.
