  • 1881 — Kintaro Hattori opens the watch and jewelry shop “K. Hattori” (Hattori Tokeiten in Japanese; currently named Seiko Holdings Corporation) in the Ginza area of Tokyo, Japan.
  • 1892 — SEIKOSHA is established in Tokyo as the clock manufacturing arm of K. Hattori.
  • 1917 — K. Hattori becomes a company (K. Hattori & Co., Ltd.).
  • 1937 — The watch production division of SEIKOSHA is split off as Daini SEIKOSHA Co., Ltd. (The Second SEIKOSHA).
  • Seikosha-Hattori-Seiko

Available on US military bases PX/BX AND R&R LOCATIONS, the early Seiko Divers, particular the 6105, were Popular with US soldiers in Vietnam. The 6105 would become a combat watch long before 1979 when Martin Sheen, as Captain Willard in “Apocalypse Now”, wearing a 6105-8110 while traversing the NAM into CAMBODIA AND ITS HIGHLANDS in search of the Off The Reservation Rogue Colonel Kurt (Marlon Brando) and his “Montagnard” Army who were wreaking havoc on the Viet Cong [Vietnamese Communist Forces].

The Snake-Eaters and the Yards
The Vietnamese tribesmen who fought alongside American Special Forces won the Green Berets’ admiration—and lost everything else. The indigenous Montagnards, recruited into service by the American Special Forces in Vietnam’s mountain highlands, defended villages against the Viet Cong and served as rapid response forces. The Special Forces and the Montagnards—each tough, versatile, and accustomed to living in wild conditions—formed an affinity for each other….

The 6105-8000 was introduced in 1968. but the 6105 8110/8119 were made from 1970-1977, and were first delivered with the words “water proof” as in: “water 150m proof” on the dial, and “waterproof” on the case back. But a US ban on using the words “WATERPROOF” on watches meant SEIKO would alter the words to “water 150m resist” with “water resistant” on the back later in the same year.This adds to value. Many early seiko watches carried the waterproof info, finding these, specifically the early 8119.. well, that is a cause for definite premium over the “resist/resist” models.
