O Poder dos 'divers' da Seiko

Tudo começou com uma paixão não correspondida pelo Monster cor-de-laranja e pela excelência de um Orient…

"What was your first Seiko watch and was it that watch that started your passion for this Japanese brand?

I only started getting really interested in watches when I was a student and had absolutely no money. I received a very nice Orient watch from my parents for my 21st birthday and it was my first mechanical watch. At this time, I was looking at Seiko just like any other entry-level brands and after getting my dressy Orient, I wanted something sportier and felt like checking the famous Orange Monster, so I dropped by a local shop that had a few Seikos. Sadly, they had never heard of the Monster but they had a blue Sumo (SBDC003) in the display. I didn’t really like this watch in pictures and couldn’t get my head around all the hype this watch was getting. But I still tried it, just to see… And I was smitten!"

Assim nasce a Ikigai Watches

"Enter Ikigai Watches from Belgium. They offer vintage Seiko watches, including King and Grand Seiko, fully serviced and with warranty. Not only that, but the watches are also regulated to their original standards. For today’s article, I talk to Arnaud, co-founder of Ikigai Watches that he runs together with watchmaker James.

What does Ikigai mean?

Ikigai is a Japanese concept that doesn’t really have any equivalent in English or even in our occidental culture. Ikigai could roughly be translated as «the reason for being». It’s a concept at the crossroads of job, passion, mission and vocation. If there is something you are good at and if you can be paid for doing it, then it’s a job. If there is something you are good at and if this is something people really need, we can call this a vocation. If there is something you love doing and if this is something people really need, then this is what we could call a mission. And if there’s something you’re good at and that you love doing it but can’t be paid for, this is simply a passion. Ikigai is a mix of all those things. We love what we do, we get paid to do it, we like to believe we are good at it and we feel like we offer a service that was really needed in the Seiko community."
