Seiko watches were originally produced by two different subsidiaries.
One was Daini Seikosha Co.,(now known as Seiko Instruments Inc.), and the other was Suwa Seikosha Co.(now known as Seiko Epson Corporation).
Seiko produces watches with quartz, kinetic, solar, and mechanical movements of varying prices, ranging from around ¥4,000 (US) (sold under the brand Alba) to ¥50,000,000 (US4,000).
The Seiko 5 is not a single watch, rather a standard that many Seiko model series of mechanical watches meet since the introduction of the moniker in the 1960's.
In 1969, Seiko introduced the Astron, the world's first production quartz watch; when it was introduced, it cost the same as a medium-sized car., meaning roughly "House of Exquisite Workmanship".According to Seiko's official company history, titled "A Journey In Time: The Remarkable Story of Seiko" (2003), Seiko is a Japanese word meaning "exquisite" or "success" ("exquisite" is usually written 精巧 from Chinese jīngqiǎo, while the meaning "success" is usually written 成功 from Chinese chénggōng).Although creating the parts that enabled quartz watches, Seiko did not monopolize the patent rights for the unique pieces, but decided to open them.In 1973, Seiko announced the world’s first LCD quartz watch with six-digit digital display.
