Kintaro Hattori’s entrepreneurial vision
The success of a business hinges on a combination of factors including, but not limited to, knowledge, skills and foresight. Hattori's understanding of market conditions and his eagerness to adopt technological advancements of his day in an effort to build the best timepieces earned him the title of 'the King of Timepieces in the East'. The ambition and intrigue with which Hattori built up his business not only secured his legacy in the pages of history but shaped the Seiko brand as we know it today.

The enduring legacy of Seiko began in 1881 with one man, Kintaro Hattori. At the age of just 17, the young entrepreneur began repairing watches and clocks in central Tokyo, Japan.
