Seiko - Designers
Looking for a new timepiece but unsure of where to get your start? At Afram's Jewelers in Corpus Christi, TX we offer the luxury, quality, and legacy of the Seiko collection.
The Seiko collection is a world-renown timepiece collection with over a hundred years of history. Founded by Japanese watchmaker Kintaro Hattori in 1881. Kintaro Hattori began manufacturing clocks under the name Seikosha, which translates into ""House of Exquisite Workmanship,"" later shortened to Seiko meaning ""exquisite,"" ""minute,"" or ""success."" Seiko is known for creating the first-ever pocket watch, the first multi-function digital watch, the first alarm chronograph, the first sound-recording watch, and the first computerized watch. All of these incredible milestones are seen today with over 5 brands under the Seiko name, with timepiece selections for both men and women.
The signature Seiko timepiece, the Grand Seiko is truly a blend of ingenuity and exquisite design. In both performance and appearance, it expresses the very best of Seiko’s mechanical watchmaking. The caliber has a high accuracy of +5 to -3 seconds a day and a power reserve of 55 hours. This Grand Seiko Hi-Beat GMT 36000 features a gorgeous gold exterior, a bright white dial, and an onyx watch strap, truly representing the legacy and heritage of the Seiko collection.
The Grand Seiko Spring Drive is another marvelous example of the high-caliber design of the Seiko brand. The Spring Drive component is a unique maneuver that combines the high torque of a mechanical watch with the high precision control system of an electronic watch. Spring Drive combines the best elements of both mechanical and electronic watches. While three-hand versions have over 200 components, versions with more functions, such as the Spring Drive chronograph have well over 300, all of which are assembled by hand. The Seiko Spring Drive is a timepiece that is truly timeless in its engineering and in its design. This Grand Seiko Spring Drive showcases a stunning titanium casing and bracelet with a black dial, making it a perfect choice for day or night.
For the world traveler on the go, the Astron GPS Solar is a perfect choice. The timepiece communicates with a GPS network and adjusts your time zone anywhere on Earth. The Astron GPS is a watch that is meant for the cutting edge, and this can be seen in its impeccable design and high-caliber performance. This fascinating technology is truly innovative and a timepiece you are sure to cherish forever. Featuring a two-toned exterior and all-black dial, this timepiece will blend in perfectly with any outfit choice.
For those interested in a Diver's Watch, the Spring Drive powered Seiko Divers watch is an excellent choice. The diver’s watch is powered by Grand Seiko’s unique Spring Drive caliber, which combines the motive force of a mainspring with the high precision of a quartz watch. The watch is water-resistant to a depth of 200 meters and utilizes the Seiko exclusive LumiBrite for increased visibility of the hands and index. "
