Casio is a Japanese company founded in the aftermath of the Second World War, in 1946. This Tokyo-based corporation became famous for its wristwatches in the 1980.
Casio is known for the innovations it brought to the digital watch market. In particular, it was one of the first brands to manufacture quartz watches. Its calculator watches were a commercial success when they were released, like their models with innovative features. Thus, Casio was one of the first to offer watches that can display the hour in different time zones, or show information such as temperature, atmospheric pressure or altitude.
The brand has also launched a series of products that can withstand the most violent shocks. These are G-Shock models.
Citizen Watch is a Japanese company based in Tokyo. It was founded in 1930 by Japanese and Swiss investors. It was this Japanese brand that launched the world's first multi-band atomic watch in 1993. Citizen's Eco-Drive technology provides accurate time with a margin of error of one second per 100,000 years.
Orient Watch is a brand founded in 1950 in Tokyo. This Japanese watchmaker mainly sells mechanical watches with automatic and manual winding. It also offers quartz and solar energy models. Its most famous watch models are the 1956 Dynamic, the 1964 Gran Prix 100 and the 1964 Fineness. The latter was the the thinnest automatic watch to indicate the date.
Seiko is a Japanese company that produces watches but also electronics, jewelry and optical devices. This company was founded in 1881 by Kintaro Hattori in Ginza, a district of Tokyo. But the first watches to be produced by this brand will only appear in 1924.
In 1969, Seiko launched the Astron, the first quartz wristwatch marketed in the world. It cost $1,250 at the time, half the price of a car. The Japanese brand will not stop there, since it produced the first quartz watch with chronograph a few years later.
Seiko has continued to innovate throughout its history. The Japanese watchmaker offers the first kinetic watch at the end of the 80s. This type of watch combines the advantages of automatic watches that recharge themselves with the precision of quartz watches.
