Toppage About the Institute
The Seiko Institute of Horology opened in 1981 to commemorate the centennial of Seiko' s founding. In addition to exhibiting a wide range of Seiko products past and present, it collects, catalogues, and preserves various articles, documents, and books related to time and time-keeping instruments from all over Japan and overseas. A visit to the Seiko Institute of Horology will give visitors a systematic understanding of Seiko' s history and the history of watch and clock industry.
we offer guided tours to provide visitors with detailed explanation and episodes about the exhibits. Please make a reservation before your visit.
It is the sincere hope of all of us at the Seiko Institute of Horology that these exhibits will provide useful information to all our visitors, including horological researchers and specialists, as well as those with a nonprofessional interest in time and time instruments.
