A history of watchmaking in Tokyo

With The Seiko Museum, the empire of the famous Japanese brand Seiko has a large, functional exhibition space that has been completely refurbished.

The newly reopened Seiko Museum, formerly the Seiko Institute of Horology, which has existed since 1981, allows you to travel in time. During your visit, learn how men have studied the cycle of the seasons through the centuries. From the first sundial, created 6,000 years ago by the Egyptians, to mechanical clocks and watches, the museum bears testimony to the vast progress that has been made. Come and meet the mathematicians, physicists, and engineers who have contributed to the evolution and development of watchmaking. A workshop will allow you to test your accuracy skills in trying to assemble a watch yourself. A fascinating tour, during which, time simply flies!
