Some Reasons Why Seiko Is The Best Bet for Mechanical Watches
Seiko’s Grand Seiko collection is without deny the best bet for mechanical watches for its price range. Well received and loved by watch collectors, Grand Seiko is wandering into the luxury watch market with steady and firm steps (although the brand has yet to hit a major breakthrough in English-speaking countries) mainly through internet forums.
Seiko has been entering international wristwatch movement competitions like the Neuchatel chronometer testing starting in 1964. The Neuchatel observatory rates and ranks participants relative to other movements that were tested. This enables the test to see who was making the most accurate timepieces. Seiko moved from the 144th place into the top ten with advancements in high-frequency calibres and was set to finally take the first-place finish in 1968 when the Neuchatel chronometer trials were abruptly abandoned.
Undeterred, Grand Seiko enrolled for the equivalent Geneva competition and received 4th through 10th place, beaten only by a prototype quartz movement which took 1st through 3rd. Hands down to Seiko in succeeding in its mission to make the most accurate mechanical wristwatch movements in the world. The Grand Seiko has proved that it can compete with any other luxury watch brand.
