Japanese Government pledged to adhere to the Geneva Convention of 1864. The Society’s
first hospital was established in Tokyo. 1887: The Philanthropic Society changed its name
to the Japanese Red Cross Society and was recognized as such by the International
Committee of the Red Cross on 2 September 1887. In July the Society first engaged in
disaster relief by assisting casualties of the Mt. Bandai eruption. 1890: Training of
nurses began at the Red Cross Hospital in Tokyo. 1906: The San Francisco earthquake and
fire in April gave the Society its first opportunity to extend relief to a foreign
country. The Society collected US$146,000 for the American Red Cross. 1912: On the
occasion of the 9th International Conference of the Red Cross in Washington, D.C., Empress
Shoken contributed 100,000 yen to the International Red Cross to encourage its peacetime
activities and established the Empress Shoken Fund. 1919: The Society was one of the five
National Societies that took the initiative in establishing the League of Red Cross
Societies. 1920: The first Florence Nightingale Medals were awarded to three JRCS nurses.
1922: The Junior Red Cross was started at a school in Shiga Prefecture. 1923: On 1
September a major earthquake hit the Tokyo area, causing serious damage, and the JRCS
conducted relief activities for the victims. 1926: The Society hosted the 2nd Oriental Red
Cross Regional Conference. 1934: The Society hosted the 15th International Conference of
the Red Cross. 1947: The Society created Home Nursing, First Aid, and Water Safety
programs similar to those of the American Red Cross.

SEIKOSHA WATCH HISTORY

Kintaro Hattori

  • 881 — Kintaro Hattori opens the watch and jewelry shop “K.
    Hattori” (Hattori Tokaiten 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. ( “Daini” = “The Second” Seikosha).
    • 1942 — Daiwa Kogyo, Ltd. is founded in Suwa, Nagano by Hisao
      Yamazaki.
    • 1943 — Daini Seikosha establishes a factory in Suwa for
      manufacturing watches with Daiwa Kogyo.

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.

AAAA-WALTHAM-JAPAN.jpg (91326 bytes)

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.
THE SEIKOSHA WATCH > SEIKO > NATION + DELIKATA + OTHERS…. I SPEND MOST OF MY
“SPARE” TIME SEEKING CANDIDATES FOR RESTORATION,. I DO NOT COLLECT THEM, I SELL
THEM– SO I CAN DO IT OVER AND OVER. SO, I COULD NOT BELIEVE MY LUCK WHEN I DISCOVERED
THIS ORIGINAL SEIKOSHA SEIKO/NATION AFTER THE RUSSO-JAPANESE WAR [1905], WITH JAPAN’S
STUNNING VICTORY, JAPAN WAS ON THE MOVE. HER EMPIRE ON THE BUILD -MOTIVATED BY A GROWING
RIGHT WING IMPERIAL MILITARY WING – JAPAN, WITH FULL SUPPORT OF THE INTERNATIONAL
COMMUNITY, RECEIVED THE RIGHT TO “COLONIZE” KOREA. IN REALITY, THE US-BRITISH
AND FRENCH GOVERNMENTS SIMPLY HANDED OVER KOREA [1910] –WHICH HAD BEEN A RUSSIAN
SEMI-COLONY–AS A “REWARD” OR THE LATE “SPOILS RESULTING FROM THE WAR. IT
WAS DURING THIS TIME THAT JAPAN SOUGHT WESTERN TECHNOLOGY IN A BID TO FURTHER WHAT WAS AN
INCREDIBLE JOURNEY FROM A BACKWARDS TECHNOLOGY NATION OF 1875, TO A NATION THAT DESTROYED
TWO RUSSIAN FLEETS IN 1905. THE ONE AND ONLY POWERFUL SEIKOSHA COMPANY TRAVELED THE GLOBE
ABSORBING ALL THE INNOVATIONS IN TIME KEEPING AND SOON BECAME THE MAIN WATCH AND CLOCK
DRIVING AND PRODUCING FORCE IN JAPAN. THE FOLLOWING PICTURES REPRESENT SEIKOSHA’
CULMINATION OF KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE; A LINE OF STANDARD & MILITARY WATCHES (THERE
WERE MILITARY ACTIONS IN KOREA, CHINA, MANCHURIA AND OTHER PLACES 24/7) WITH UNIQUE NAMES
SUCH AS “NATION” [ SIGNIFYING THE JAPANESE NATION] SEIKO [WAS NOT A BRAND YET],
DELIKATA AND OTHERS. THESE WATCHES WOULD BE WORN AND CHERISHED JAPANESE SOLDIERS.

SURPERBLY RECONDITIONED ORIGINAL MILITARY STRAP

WITH OUTER CASE

AND

INNER CASE

MOUNTED

THIS HATTORI SEIKOSHA RED CROSS NURSES WATCH IS AS
CLOSE TO ABSOLUTE RARITY AS ANY WATCH YOU WILL EVER DISCOVER

img_7653.jpg (35844 bytes)

THE INNER CASE HOLDS A 7 JEWEL SKS EARLY
MILITARY/UTILITY MOVEMENT

img_7659.jpg (34293 bytes)

NOTE THE JAPANESE STITCHING THIS AGED HISTORICAL
STRAP IS IN NEAR MINT CONDITION NO BREAKS CRACKS TEARS

img_7662.jpg (33134 bytes)

WHILE THE OUTER CASE SHOWS SIGNED OF AGE IT IS A
WONDERFUL AGED BEAUTY THAT PROTECTED THE INNER CASE AND MOVEMENT FOR 92 YEAR S

AND IT WORKS LIKE IT SHOULD THE ORIGINAL CELLULOID
CONTENT CRYSTAL HAS BEEN RESTORED AND 80% OF YELLOWING REMOVED

img_7657.jpg (38698 bytes)

THIS IS WHAT AN ANTIQUE JAPANESE LEATHER MILITARY
STRAP IS SUPPOSED TO LOOK LIKE THEY WERE MADE WITHOUT FAN FARE UTILITY AT HEART MANY HAVE
LASTED THE AGES OF YEARS

YOU CAN SEE THE TEXTURE CREATED BY THE KNIFE WHEN
SPLITTING THE LEATHER SO THIN YET SO RUGGED IT CAN ONLY BE THE WORK OF THE JAPANESE

img_7656.jpg (41707 bytes)

PERFECT CLOSE UPS

img_7663.jpg (39984 bytes)

AGAIN WE SEE THE HAND STITCHING EVERY THING
CREATED IN JAPAN IS SPECIAL AND THE TECHNIQUES AMAZING

img_7664.jpg (35585 bytes) READY TO WEAR BUT THIS BEAUTY SHOULD NOT BE WORN EVERY DAY PARTS ARE SO
HARD TO COME BY! IT WILL BE WORTH 10 TIMES WHAT YOU PAY TODAY IN 10 YEARS!

img_7644.jpg (34189 bytes)

WITH ORIGINAL TO THE PERIOD HAND STITCHING IT
DISPLAYS AN AWESOME COLOR THE ANTIQUATED BROWN IS STUNNING

img_7641.jpg (26769 bytes)

ABOVE ARE THE TWO PIECES THE STRAP & THE OUTER
CASE

THE INNER CASE WITH MOVEMENT IS
“CARRIED” BY THE STRAP AND OUTER CASE

img_7631.jpg (47912 bytes)

OVER HAULED CLEANED I MUST SAY THE DIAL BEING
PORCELAIN ONE NEED NOT WORRY WHEN CLEANING AND POLISHING LIKE A KITCHEN SINK AND THOUGH IT
CAN CRACK OR CHIP IF DROPPED OR BENT

IT CAN STAND THE HARDSHIP OF TIME

THE CASE IS NICKEL WITH CHROME PLATE HIGHER
STANDARD THAN BRASS AND CHROME

img_7634.jpg (52916 bytes) SIGNED

GOLD COIN EMBLEM – PICTURE OF COIN WITH HEAD &
STARS UNDERSIGNED WITH 1920 NICKEL CHROME PLATE 920963

AGAIN 1920 WAS WHEN THE US AND JAPAN WERE CLOSE IT
WAS 15 YEARS AFTER JAPAN DEFEATED RUSSIA AND TWO YEARS AFTER WWI THE VERY CASE HERE HAS
WHAT LOOKS LIKE A US COIN AND IT IS IN ENGLISH

img_7627.jpg (37183 bytes)

EASY TO POLISH THE DIAL IS ILLUMINATING NOT WITH
GLOWING LUMINOVA BUT WITH JAPANESE HISTORY

img_7637.jpg (38721 bytes)

WANT ONE?

img_7638.jpg (38794 bytes)

WOW

img_7639.jpg (29696 bytes)

A LITTLE CREEP OF THE CHROME FINISH BUT THIS IS A
NON-ISSUE THIS WATCH IS SIMPLY TOO RARE FOR THIS TO MATTER

img_7633.jpg (49563 bytes)

7 JEWEL SKS MOVEMENT

NEARLY EVERY EARLY JAPANESE MILITARY WATCH HAS SKS
ON THE CASE INTERIORS. I FACT IT IS A SIGN TO LOOK FOR YET, THIS BEAUTY REPRESENTS THE
TRUE EARLY PERIOD OF HATTORI AND SEIKOSHA IT IS THE FIRST I HAVE SEEN WITH ONLY SKS THIS
IS A BASIC EARLY 7 JEWEL MODEL THE ESCAPEMENT IS JEWELED WITH BALANCE PALLET FORK

****************************************

img_7955.jpg (189588 bytes)

THE MILITARY WATCH BOX AND MEMORABILIA

IT IS FACT THAT EARLY VINTAGE JAPANESE RED CROSS
MEMORABILIA IS SO RARE HARDLY ANYTHING EXISTS BESIDES MEDALS

THIS WATCH AND ASSOCIATED ITEMS WILL ONLY RISE IN PRICE AND IF
THE ECONOMY WAS RIGHT THE PRICE, IN FACT, WOULD BE $2200.00 TODAY

img_7710.jpg (44385 bytes)

WE BEGIN WITH THE BOX A PADDED & CUSHIONED
INTERIOR THEN WE COVER IT WITH ACID FREE BLACK SYNTHETIC FELT

img_7711.jpg (66718 bytes)

THUS WE HAVE THE HARD PRESSED CARD BOARD BACK A
COUSION ON TOP THEN BLACK FELT FOR THE JAPANESE MILITARYWATCHBOX™ BLACK IS THE COLOR
OF CHOICE THE REASON WE DO NOT USE WOOD FOR BOX BACK IS THE DRILLING WE HAVE TO ACCOMPLISH
TO MOUNT ITEMS AND FOR THE PINS TO BE SET

UNLESS STATED OTHERWISE all watches offered by GSW have been
SERVICED. Some required REPAIR AND RESTORATION! Normal Servicing of Mechanical Watches by
an EXPERT PROFESSIONAL will run between $180.00 to 580.00, depending on the complication
of the movement and that is WITHOUT parts that may be required. SERVICING means
DISASSEMBLING THE ENTIRE WATCH AND MOVEMENT, CLEANING SAME, OILING, LUBING AND
REASSEMBLING, timing and Sealing. RESTORATION is a separate service from SERVICING and may
include CRYSTAL, DIAL, HANDS, CASE, LUGS and BAND. So, WHEN YOU VIEW VINTAGE AND CLASSIC
WATCHES OFFERED BY OTHER VENDORS/DEALERS, the question is: WAS THE WATCH SERVICED?
