Why We Love it

Were you aware that Seiko has a watch division whose wares often eclipse even those of Grand Seiko in craftsmanship and execution?

That’s right. In 1974, Seiko created Credor to fashion watches — often, though not always, from precious metals — that matched their Swiss and German counterparts in quality and style. The brand flies well under the radar even today, however, giving true meaning to the oft-overused phrase, ‘If you know, you know.’

This particular Credor, an Eichi II, dates to circa 2018. A sequel to the well regarded Eichi of 2008, it does away with all extraneous ornamentation in favor of a beautiful, crisp porcelain dial, paired to a gorgeous movement. If you’re on the hunt for a handsome dress watch that flies under the radar, this is surely it!

Housed in a 39mm platinum case with a signed crown and a polished bezel, it features a white porcelain dial with blue hand-painted indices and a matching, a blued-steel handset with a half-moon counterbalance on the seconds hand. Powering the watch and visible via a sapphire display caseback is the manually-wound Spring Drive Calibre 7R14A1, a special movement that combines the best of mechanical and quartz technology into one superlative, incredibly accurate engine. 

Paired to a signed, black alligator leather strap with a signed platinum push-button deployant clasp and accompanied by its factory goodies, this is a connoisseur's timepiece, and an incredible design object.

Brand Story

+
Credor, established in 1974, is Seiko’s highest-end watchmaking division — a company whose remit is to manufacture (largely) precious metal watches that can compete with the best that Swiss watchmaking has to offer. Designed in 1980, the company’s ‘golden crest’ logo of a mountain and three stars symbolizes the brand’s core principles of sensitivity, technology, and skill.

Credor has long flown under the radar in the West, where its wares are less familiar than those of Seiko and Grand Seiko. In Japan, however, Credor is a local legend, fashioning timepieces whose aesthetics and values are inspired by the best of Japanese design. Marrying brilliant horology with stunning gem-setting, engraving, enameling, and more, the brand creates timepieces whose detail and craftsmanship are second to none.

Pricing begins in the thousands and runs well into ‘If you have to ask…’ territory. But whether a simple, porcelain-dialed, time-only dress watch or a fully skeletonized, complicated piece from the Masterpiece Collection, a Credor watch is most certainly a thing of beauty — the type of object d’art that simply can’t be ignored.
