Seiko opens its latest boutique in the heart of London

The new Seiko Boutique in London is open for business. At an inauguration ceremony on August 10, 2017, the President and COO of Seiko Watch Corporation, Shuji Takahashi, invited the world to the boutique and ushered in a new chapter in the history of Seiko in the UK.

At the opening, Takahashi had the honor of being joined by His Excellency Koji Tsuruoka, Japanese Ambassador to the UK, and Jonathan Ross, television presenter and noted enthusiast for Japan and its culture. At the inauguration ceremony, Takahashi commented: “We have long wanted to open a Seiko Boutique in London and I am delighted that we have now found the perfect location where we can show the world the full range of our Seiko and Grand Seiko collections. I can promise every visitor a uniquely enjoyable and informative experience of our watches and of what makes them special.”

The boutique showcases the very best of Seiko, including the Astron GPS Solar, Presage, Prospex and Premier collections. Alongside Seiko, in a special area dedicated to the brand, is the widest selection of the luxury brand Grand Seiko anywhere in Europe. The boutique provides watch lovers with the perfect environment in which to experience and explore the rich world of Seiko.

136 years of history

Visitors can learn of the company’s 136 years of history, its landmark technical achievements and the unrivaled diversity of its watchmaking technologies. Because Seiko is one of the very few vertically integrated watchmakers in the world, the movements in each watch offered in the Seiko Boutique are made from components manufactured entirely in-house, which is the ultimate and only guarantee of the highest level of quality, performance and durability.

The author 0024 Editorial Team

When we started publishing our first high-end watch magazine in 1999, we had only one intention: increasing the popularity of high-quality mechanical watches. Now, many years later, this has not changed at all. In 2017 we have reinvented ourselves to serve our readers in a different and better way. Starting in 2017, the new 0024 is again better equipped to interact with the changing world of high-end watches. The new 0024 HORLOGES magazine (written in Dutch) will be at least a 200 pager: that’s twice the volume of our magazine in the old days.
