Why We Love it

Sure, we’re mostly about mechanical watches here at Analog:Shift. But certain quartz-powered timepieces are simply too cool to ignore — especially when you come across colorful examples produced by Japanese powerhouse, Seiko.

This 1990s  Soccer Timer features the brand’s nifty Calibre 8M32 quartz movement — one of their first quartz movements equipped with a countdown system. At a glance this Seiko presents as an analog timepiece, but in hand it feels much more like a digital watch without the distraction of an LED display. Let us explain.

A Seiko Reference 8M32-6010, this piece features a 35mm stainless steel case with a bidirectional green friction bezel used to time an entire period of soccer, o r perhaps fútbol, depending on from where you hail! The piece also features a crown at 3 o’clock, and barrel pushers flanked along the left side. Although simple at a glance, the dial offers a range of function options including a subsidiary function indicator located at 6 o’clock, an inner minute scale up to 45 minutes and a skeletonized handset. 

The ‘digital’ qualities reside within its suite of timing functions and the ‘dancing’ sweep of the handset while moving through each setting. This Seiko Soccer Timer is equipped with a chronograph function, countdown timer, free-set timer and lastly, a repeat function.

Oh - by the way - this Seiko can also tell the time.

Paired to our Analog:Shift Kakapo Green Vegan Strap, this Seiko Soccer Timer is unique, vibrant and loads of fun on and off the pitch!

Brand Story

+
For over 140 years, Seiko has been cranking out innovative and impeccably engineered watches at every price point, from entry-level Seiko 5s to world-class haute horlogerie pieces under the Grand Seiko brand. Underpinning the company’s efforts has been the mass production of reliable and accurate movements paired with a wide array of case and dial configurations.

Founded in 1881 by clockmaker and businessman Kintarō Hattori in Tokyo, Japan as “K. Hattori,” Seiko began importing Western timepieces and selling them in the local market. In 1892, Hattori changed the name of the firm to Seikosha (“house of exquisite workmanship”), which was further altered to “Seiko” in 1924. Following the Second World War, during which Seiko produced watches for the Japanese military, the company began its streak of innovations based upon affordable, in-house movements and Japanese savoir faire. These included myriad dive watches such as the famed 6105 and the fan-favorite 6139 chronograph.

Later, in 1969, Seiko would go on to produce the Astron, the world’s first quartz watch. This technological innovation was followed by the Seiko Kinetic in the 1980s, which married quartz accuracy with automatic, self-powering functionality. Today, Seiko’s product offerings are vast, including dress watches, dive watches, chronographs and much more, all of which are powered by in-house movements comprising different types of technology.

Despite a move toward luxury positioning and pricing in the brand’s modern offerings, vintage Seiko classics can still be had at incredibly reasonable prices today, making them a favorite entry point into the vintage watch world for myriad collectors. From their availability in post exchanges on military bases around the world to their fame from films such as Apocalypse Now to their presence at six Olympic Games, Seiko watches are deeply ingrained in the consciousness of the contemporary collector.
