The Difference between Seiko and Grand Seiko

 

Grand Seiko is seemingly the single most disruptive brand in the luxury watch industry. Having only arrived in the US a few years ago, the brand is one of the most widely respected watchmakers in the industry.

Although Grand Seiko and Seiko come with almost the same aesthetic and brand name, the differences between the two timepieces are significant. Before we get down to the differences between the two, let’s see how they are similar:

 

What similarities do they have between them?

Parent Company

Seiko and Grand Seiko share the same parent company. This means that the aesthetic and quality standards of the two timepieces are both exceptional.

Classy Watches

For these two timepieces, you can’t go wrong with their level of quality. These timepieces far exceed their price range and perform like more expensive products.

 

What is the difference between Seiko and Grand Seiko?

Material

Resilient and affordable stainless steel is the standard material used by most watch manufacturers to make watches. Seiko watches are made from this material.

However, Grand Seiko is made from high-quality stainless steel which lasts longer. Some Grand Seiko pieces, however, are made entirely from platinum or titanium.

Craftsmanship

Seiko watches are almost entirely manufactured by machines, which means it lacks the most handmade features.

Grand Seiko, however, takes more care in creating the best watches. Most of its parts are handmade, the bracelets and case are well-polished, and the finishing is breath-taking. They invest care and time to produce these high-quality Grand Seiko watches.

Price

With everything said above, price is what you pay for getting hold of these beautiful timepieces.

Seiko watches are very affordable, sometimes priced as low as $50 for dress watches all the way to a high price point of $1000 for dive watches. These amazing watches are cheap because Seiko uses machines to manufacture most of the parts.

However, if you want a  handcrafted timepiece, Grand Seiko is the way to go. Because they put much care and time into these high-end watches, they cost a fortune.

Grand Seiko watches begin around $2,000 and extend all the way to $18,000. For the same quality and finishing, they are still cheap compared to their Swiss counterparts.

 

 

Wrapping Up

Seiko watches are definitely cheaper regardless of their quality and features when compared with other brands. There are several good Seiko models to choose from, but these have made our 2020 list for their outstanding features and use cases.

Overall, Seiko watches have a history dating as far back as the early 1880s and over the years they keep getting better.
