7 Best Seiko Watches For Women
Who didn’t own a Seiko watch at some point in their lives? Seiko watches are stylish, cost-effective, and have an excellent timekeeping reputation.
Most often, Seiko is the first brand of choice for first-time watch collectors. Not only is the brand popular and affordable, but it also has time-honoured watchmaking craftsmanship and heritage.
With over a century of horological expertise, Seiko certainly knows its craft — from its quartz watches to its high-horology collections. Seiko’s history dates back to 1881 when Kintarō Hattori, at 21 years old, founded the brand in Tokyo, Japan.
Hattori’s fascination with watches started at 13 when he worked in a clock shop to learn everything he could about watches. More than 130 years later, his legacy still lives on.
Although Seiko watches for men are more popular, their ladies counterparts are hot on the heels. Here are seven of the best ladies’ Seiko watches that every woman should own.
