HAMAZAWA

1954 to 1986

Hamazawa Ltd was founded in 1954.

 

By 1960, Hamazawa was developing an inexpensive yet well built line of movements. Their first were the 50xx and 80xx family of calibres.

 

HAMAZAWA Ltd also had close ties to Suwa Seikosha Ltd. In the 1970's, HAMAZAWA and Suwa Seikoshain applied jointly  for electronic patents.

 

In the late 1960s, Hamazawa developed the base 50xx calibre series along the lines of Timex. Inexpensive and simple, yet they utilized a measure of Japanese quality by adding some refinements such as a jewelled lever escapement and jewelled balance bearings. These movements were utilized by Orient, Benrus, Montgomery Ward, Sears and Astral.

 

By the seventies --before quartz would reign king--Hamazawa added further refinements to compete in the open market such as 17 and 21 jeweled movements. These movements were simple yet solid creations with well jeweled and engineered make up. These movements would be signed for the brand utilized again in many Japanese and Foreign watch brands.

 

Because of the quartz revolution, in 1983,Hamazawa merged with Takagi LTD & Tenryu LTD - major Seiko watch case supplier - to form Sanritus ltd. By 1986 it was taken over by Seiko-Epson and disappeared.

 

Le GANT

Le Gant was a brand made for Montgomery Wards and a few other retailers. It was also sold in France and Hong Kong.

 

QS
QS was for QUICK SET. Which was a selling feature first introduced by Hamazawa on a series of 4 watches, this being the only DIVERS. The technology, like the Diashock balance protection top and bottom, originated with and was approved by, SEIKO.

RESTORATION is a separate service from SERVICING and may include CRYSTAL, DIAL, HANDS, CASE, LUGS and BAND.
