A celebration in honour of the opening was held at the Swissotel Sydney tonight, hosted by Seiko Watch Corporation COO Hirohiko Umemoto, and attended by several of Seiko’s business partners, media representatives and watch collectors.

This new boutique is one of several that Seiko is opening in the world’s leading cities. Last year Seiko boutiques opened in Frankfurt, Moscow and Tokyo and more will follow in 2016. Seiko’s aim, here in Sydney as elsewhere, is to allow visitors a unique, exciting and intriguing opportunity to explore the world of Seiko through its history, its craftsmanship and its finest watches. The Seiko Boutique will showcase Seiko’s prestigious collections, Grand Seiko, Astron and Credor and will display several watches never before offered in Australia. The boutique will have a resident Seiko watchmaker to assist customers with technical information and assistance.
