First Watch Using a Battery
Seiko, also known as Seikosha, was founded in 1881 as a clock repair shop, started producing wall clocks in 1892 and pocket watches 3 years later. In 1913 Seiko made Japan’s first wristwatch and in 1969 built the world’s first atomic chronograph, as well as the world’s first quartz watch powered by a battery. This new quartz watch not only started a revolution in personal time-keeping, it also started a huge and rapidly growing industry of watch batteries.
Digital Watch Battery Worldwide Demands
Since today there are more digital watches worn by people around the world, than conventional spring-powered watches, the watch battery business has become a very big business. While people only buy a new watch either once in a lifetime in the less-developed world, or more frequently in the developed world, in either situation everybody needs to replace their watch batteries most commonly once a year or at minimum every few years.
Long-Lasting Watch Batteries
In 1973 Seiko Watch Company built the world’s first Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) watch and made converts of the people who were skeptical of the then popular Light Emitting Diode (LED) watches which could only display the time for a few seconds at a time in order to conserve the watch batteries’ power. Once the time was visible on the LCD at all times and you did not have to press a button to see the time or have to replace the watch batteries too frequently, digital watches became a replacement for conventional spring-driven time pieces.
Watch Batteries Becoma Smaller and More Powerful
Since those early years of pioneering watch design in the digital watch world and requiring more and more digital watch batteries for the growing population of electronic watch users, Seiko has created a large number of groundbreaking digital watch designs, requiring more powerful and long-lasting digital watch batteries for its users. Also since electronic digital watches became smaller and thinner, more powerful and smaller digital watch batteries had to also be designed and manufactured and available everywhere.
