Seiko and the Swiss Chronometer Competitions

In the 1960's mechanical watches were reaching their peak and a series of competitions to determine the most accurate watches in the world were being held in Switzerland. A couple of Seiko companies joined these competitions and within a few years were able to compete at the highest levels.

To understand how the companies performance was able to improve and rapidly evolve I have created a timeline showing the details of their results along with information on the key staff members and the details of the calibers developed.
