Introducing Seikosha's "Swallow Chronometer" from the 1940s .

 Seiko was founded in 1877 when its founder, Kintaro Hattori, established the Hattori Watch Repair Shop. Initially, he sold and repaired used watches and worked as a repairman at other watch shops, striving to improve his skills. Four years later, in 1881 , he founded the Hattori Watch Shop.

Initially, the company sold and repaired imported watches, but in 1892 , in order to utilize the technology it had cultivated up until then, it established a watch manufacturing division called "Seikosha."

Seiko began by manufacturing wall clocks and went on to successfully develop the first domestically produced pocket watches and wristwatches, building the foundations of Japan's watch industry.

Now, the company has earned the title of "Seiko of the World."


The "Swallow Chronometer" we are introducing this time is a valuable vintage watch from the time when SEIKO was still Seikosha.

The dial is a rare two -tone dial, with white and beige separated by a triangle.
The dial features all Arabic indexes and pencil hands.
The gold color of the index goes well with the two-tone dial, giving it a sophisticated and elegant feel.

The case is a square case with multi-faceted cut processing.
The watch is decorated throughout with details that make it look beautiful, and even the lugs have been hollowed out, which takes a lot of time and money to make.

The Swallow combines the dignity and elegance befitting a luxury hand-wound watch of the time.

The movement is 7 jewels and is a hand-wound model.

This movement has an attractive classic appearance, including a screw balance and a specially shaped bridge.
It has been certified as a chronometer, so even though it is an 80- year-old watch, it boasts high accuracy.


Size: Height: 33mm , Width: 27.6mm , Thickness: 9mm , Weight: 21g.

It is small and lightweight, so it fits comfortably even for women.
The classic design goes well with formal attire such as jackets, shirts, and vests.


The condition is good, the case has some small scratches, but it does not affect use.
There are no noticeable stains on the dial, and it is in such beautiful condition that it is hard to believe it is 80 years old.
The movement is working fine.

Please be sure to read the following information after purchasing an antique watch.

When selling antique watches at RESUME, we do not immediately hand them over to you when you place your order. Instead, we ask a professional craftsman to overhaul them (hereafter referred to as OH) and deliver them to you after the OH is completed. (This takes about 2 to 3 months.)

A professional craftsman with first-class watch repair technician qualifications will completely disassemble your watch, replace worn parts such as the internal gaskets, clean it, oil it, and perform a thorough overhaul, maintaining it to a daily accuracy of about ±1 minute.
When we deliver the machine, we will also send you our own overhaul certificate, which shows what kind of overhaul was performed, as well as photos of the machine being disassembled and maintained.

Of course, due to the nature of the product itself being a second-hand item, there is no guarantee that it will never break, but we ask for your understanding that we take this approach so that you can enjoy the original performance of the watch and use it with peace of mind in the future.

When you purchase a product, we offer a one-year warranty depending on the model. Even if the warranty period has expired, we will properly repair the product, but there will be a fee. If there is no repair shop near you, please feel free to contact us.
