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.’

The particular Credor we have here is a Reference GCLP995 from the 2020s. Housed in a 38mm stainless steel case with a sapphire crystal, a signed crown, and a polished bezel, it features a sunburst silver dial with applied ‘baton’ indices, a stainless steel ‘sword’ handset with a blued steel seconds hand, a power reserve indicator at 10 o’clock, and an outsize, ‘digital’ date window at 5 o’clock. 

Powered by the beautifully finished, manually wound Credor Caliber 7R87A 1 movement, it comes paired to a stainless steel multi-link bracelet with a signed, double-push button deployant clasp and features an exhibition caseback. In excellent condition throughout, it also includes its factory goodies.

Many Credor timepieces cost tens of thousands —  this is a beautiful example of a piece that retains all the character of such a watch at a fraction of the price.

What’s not to like?!

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.
