The Seikō Holdings K.K., shortly ‘Seiko’, is a Japanese watch manufacturer, which was opened in 1881 as a repair and sales shop for used watches under the name ‘Hattori Tokeiten’ by Kintarō Hattori. In 1892, Hattori opened a factory for wall clocks. From 1895, he started the production of pocket watches, from 1899 he produced alarm clocks and from 1913 wrist watches. After Hattori’s death in 1934, the watch production continued in 1937 under the name KK Daini Seikōsha (today's Seikō Instruments K.K.). After several other name changes, the company was named Seikō Holdings K.K in 2007. (nlu)
