Today is Spring Drive day, apparently. Jaime posits a future for Seiko on the Seiko and Citizen Forum.
1) Is that Seiko is now lending its workhorse movements to its lower end subsidiaries. 2) Seiko has internationally broken the 1,000.00++USD barrier watch, which even the Japanese Executives acknowledged, before the introduction of the Spring Drive, was difficult to sell outside Japan due to brand perception. 3) Seiko has created an outlet store outside of Japan( Singapore ). 4) An increased stake in Orient which are coming out with more cutting edge designs made for a lower end market. 5) Cheap Chinese watches will get better and better as requests for one off and internationally subcontracted brands continue. 6) Kinetics are now super reliable and find their movements in more expensive Seiko ( and other) tool/dress watches.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
