Seikosha's first product
With the ambition that his company should become a fully autonomous manufcturer, Kintaro convinced a gifted engineer, Tsuruhiko Yoshikawa to join him. Kintaro set up the Seikosha factory in 1892. The name 'Seikosha' means 'the house of precision'. Within two months of the factory opening, the first Eight-Day winding Wall clock was successfully produced. After that, convinced that “customers always favor quality products,” the Seikosha factory specialized in quality-centered, customer-centered manufacturing.
