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, during the 1990s.

This 1990s Seiko Yacht Timer features the brand’s nifty Calibre 8M37 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 8M-037-6000, this piece features a 35mm stainless steel case with a steel friction compass bezel, a crown at 9 o’clock and barrel pushers flanked along the right side. Although simple at a glance, the dial offers a range of function options including a function indicator located at 12 o’clock, a tri-color timing scale bordering the dial’s bottom half and a skeletonized handset. 

The ‘digital’ qualities reside within its suite of timing functions and the smooth sweep of the handset while moving through each setting. This Yacht Timer comes with three separate pre-set timers that can be started from 5, 10 or 15 minutes. The free-set timer can be set to 1-minute intervals up to 30 minutes and lastly, its repeat function allows for the timer to count down again when the set time is up.

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

Paired to our new Analog:Shift Citrus Orange Vegan Strap, this Seiko Yacht Timer is unique, vibrant and loads of fun - plus, you know we always love a colorful regatta timing watch!

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.
