SEIKO MILITARY WATCH ONE OF FIRST BRANDED “SEIKO”.

FROM 1874 TO 1917,   JAPAN HAD SHED HER ANCIENT OUT-DATED WAYS AND MOVED WITH UNEXPECTED FORCE INTO THE MODERN WORLD. JAPAN   HAD BECOME A BUILDER OF HER OWN ARMAMENTS, SHIPS, PLANES AND HAD EVEN   IMPROVED UPON THE ADVANCEMENTS OF THE MODERNIZED WORLD.  IN FACT, AFTER THE 1904-05 ANNIHILATION OF TWO VAUNTED AND POWERFUL RUSSIAN FLEETS, SHE HAD BECOME A WELCOME TREATY PARTNER OF THE USA, BRITAIN AND THE WORLD AT LARGE. BY 1917,   DAINI SEIKOSHA WAS SEEKING WESTERN TECHNOLOGY TO IMPROVE THEIR  CAPABILITIES TO PRODUCE MODERN WATCHES. THEY INVITED SWISS AND AMERICAN WATCH COMPANIES TO JAPAN. THEY DID WHAT THE JAPANESE DO BEST. UNDER THE BANNER OF POSSIBLE EXPORTS, THESE COMPANIES WOULD, IN FACT, TEACH THE JAPANESE WOW TO MAKE WATCHES THAT, BY THE 1950’S, WOULD COMPETE TOE TO TOE, WITH THE ENTIRE GLOBAL WATCH COMMUNITY.

IN 1917, JAPAN HAD AGREEMENTS WITH THE MOST ADVANCED COMPANIES IN SWITZERLAND AND THE UNITED STATES. THE ABOVE ADD IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO THIS OFFER AND ITS HISTORY. MANY SEIKOSHA MILITARY WATCHES CONTAINED WALTHAM MOVEMENTS! IN ADDITION, SWISS TECHNOLOGY AND FINISHING TECHNIQUES CAN BE FOUND IN THE LIMITED ANTIQUE VINTAGE JAPANESE TIME PIECES AVAILABLE TODAY, SUCH AS THIS SEIKOSHA SEIKO TIME PIECE WITH SEIKOSHA MOVEMENT THAT HAS ALL THE CHARACTERISTICS OF A SWISS OR AMERICAN TIME PIECE OF THE DAY.\

HISTORY

The Rise Of Japan
1905 – 1945

Manchuria , along with other borderlands of the Chinese Empire such as Mongolia and Tibet, came under the influence of colonial powers such as Britain which nibbled at Tibet, France at Hainan and Germany at Shandong. Meanwhile the Russia encroached upon Turkestan and Outer Mongolia, having annexed Outer Manchuria. Inner Manchuria also came under strong Russian influence with the building of the Chinese Eastern Railway through Harbin to Vladivostok.

Due to the Russo-Japanese War in 1904–1905, in which Japan surprised the world powers by decisively defeating Russia on the ground as well as out at sea,virtually annihilating the Russian Far East Fleet and the The Russian Second Pacific Squadron (The   Russian Baltic Fleet Renamed) ,  Japan replaced Russian influence in the southern half of Inner Manchuria.

MANCHUIA.jpg (3870 bytes)
Great Empire of Manchuria

With the erosion of Qing China influences in the 19th century, Korea began to show greater independence, partly to avoid western domination, but also to avoid Japanese control, while Japan was rapidly modernizing in the second half of the 19th century and showing a keen interest in Korea.

By the 1880s there were pro-Japanese and pro-Qing factions influencing decisions by the Korean court. With the defeat of Qing forces inside Korea in 1895 and the murder of Empress Myeongseong by Japanese agents, and the subsequent defeat of Imperial Russia by Japan in 1905, Korea came firmly under the control of Japan and would be occupied by Japan for 35 years.

1905-japanese-command.jpg (95229 bytes)
Japanese General Kuroki and his staff, including
foreign officers and war correspondents 1904

AFTER THE  Russo-Japanese War the European powers and the United States recognized Japan as a colonial power and a  valuable ally during World War I., In Japan, this led to the rise of ultra-right wing and nationalist leaders, such as Fumimaro Konoe and Sadao Araki, who advocated uniting Asia under the rule of the emperor. Known as hakkô ichiu, this philosophy gained ground during the 1920s and 1930s as Japan needed increasingly more natural resources to support its industrial growth.

Japan entered World War I in 1914, seizing the opportunity of Germany’s distraction with the European War to expand its sphere of influence in China and the Pacific. Japan declared war on Germany on August 23, 1914. Japanese and allied British Empire forces soon moved to occupy Tsingtao fortress, the German East Asia Squadron base, German-leased territories in China’s Shandong Province as well as the Marianas, Caroline, and Marshall Islands in the Pacific, which were part of German New Guinea. The Siege of Tsingtao and a swift invasion in the German territory of Jiaozhou (Kiautschou), proved successful and the colonial troops surrendered on November 7, 1914. Japan then gained the German holdings.

Portrait_of_Masatake_Terauchi.jpg (19878 bytes)
Terauchi Masatake
Prime Minister of Japan
1916-1918

In July 1918, President Wilson asked the Japanese government to supply 7000 troops as part of an international coalition of 25,000 troops planned to support the American Expeditionary Force Siberia. (the western powers acting against the Russian Revolution) Prime Minister Terauchi Masatake agreed to send 12,000 troops, but under the Japanese command rather than as part of an international coalition

To keep the economy growing, an emphasis was placed on arms and weapons production with much of the raw materials coming from the United States. Rather than continue this dependence on foreign materials, the Japanese decided to seek out resource-rich colonies to supplement their existing possessions in Korea and Formosa.

Manchuria was (and still is) an important region for its rich mineral and coal reserves, and its soil is perfect for soy and barley production. For pre-World War II Japan, Manchuria was an essential source of raw materials. Without occupying Manchuria, the Japanese probably could not have carried out their plan for conquest over Southeast Asia or taken the risk to attack Pearl Harbor on the 7th of December, 1941

Around the time of World War I, Zhang Zuolin established himself as a powerful warlord with influence over most of Manchuria. He was inclined to keep his Manchu army under his control and to keep Manchuria free of foreign influence. The Japanese tried to kill him in 1916 by throwing a bomb under his carriage, but failed. The Japanese finally succeeded on June 2, 1928, when a planted bomb exploded under his seven-carriage train a few miles from Mukden station.

On September 18, 1931, the Japanese staged an incident along the Japanese-owned South Manchuria Railway near Mukden (Shenyang). After blowing up a section of track, the Japanese blamed the “attack” on the local Chinese garrison. Using the “Mukden Bridge Incident” as a pretext, Japanese troops flooded into Manchuria.

On October 24, the League of Nations passed a resolution demanding the withdrawal of Japanese troops by November 16. This resolution was rejected by Tokyo and Japanese troops continued operations to secure Manchuria.

the Japanese created the puppet state of Manchukuo with the last Chinese emperor, Puyi, as its leader. Like the United States, the League of Nations refused to recognize the new state, prompting Japan to leave the organization in 1933.

On November 25, 1936, Japan joined with Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy in signing the Anti-Comintern Pact which was directed against global communism.

the military, Konoe permitted troop strength in China to grow and by the end of the year Japanese forces had occupied Shanghai, Nanking, and southern Shanxi province. After seizing the capital of Nanking, the Japanese brutally sacked the city in late 1937 and early 1938.

The last Manchu emperor, Puyi, was then placed on the throne to lead a Japanese puppet government in the Wei Huang Gong, better known as “Puppet Emperor’s Palace”. Inner Manchuria was thus detached from China by Japan to create a buffer zone to defend Japan from Russia’s Southing Strategy and, with Japanese investment and rich natural resources, became an industrial domination.

As his brother Emperor Puyi was without a direct heir,, HIS YOUNGER BROTHER, Prince Pujie, was regarded first in line to succeed the Manchukuo throne, and the Japanese officially proclaimed him as heir apparent. He l went to Japan for studies. After graduation from the Imperial Japanese Army Academy, Pujie agreed to an arranged marriage with a Japanese noblewoman. Pujie selected Lady Hiro Saga (1914-1987), who was a relative of the Japanese Imperial Family from a photograph from a number of possible candidates vetted by the Kwantung Army.   the wedding had strong political implications, and was aimed at both fortifying relations between the two nations and introducing Japanese blood into the Manchurian Imperial family.

On September 22, 1940, taking advantage of France’s defeat that summer, Japanese troops occupied French Indochina. Five days later, the Japanese signed the Tripartiate Pact effectively forming an alliance with Germany and Italy

At the time of the collapse of Manchukuo during the Soviet invasion of Manchuria of August 1945, Pujie initially attempted to escape to exile in Japan with his brother. However, as it became apparent that no escape was possible, he opted to return to Hsinking in an unsuccessful attempt to surrender the city to Kuomingtang forces of the Republic of China, rather than have the city fall into Russian hands. Pujie was arrested by the Soviet Red Army, and was sent to prison camps in Chita and Khabarovsk in Siberia with his brother and other relatives. With the Sino-Soviet rapprochement after the establishment of the People’s Republic of China, Pujie was extradited to China in 1950.Under the People’s Republic of China On his return to China, Pujie was incarcerated in the Fushun War Criminals Management Centre. A model prisoner, he became a symbol of leniency by the communist regime, joined the Communist Party of China, and later served in a number of important posts.In 1978, Pujie became a deputy from Shanghai at the 5th National People’s Congress. He subsequently served as deputy from Liaoning, Politburo Standing Committee Member, and Vice Chairman of the Nationalities Committee of the 6th National People’s Congress in 1983. He was appointed Deputy Head of the China-Japan Friendship Group from 1985. He rose to a seat on the Presidium of the 7th National People’s Congress in 1988. From 1986, Pujie was also Honorary Director for the Handicapped Welfare Fund.
