That's right. In a blind taste test, the 1973 vintage produced by Croatian American Mike Grgich, just a year after he started his career, beat out the mythical Meursault Charmes from Domaine Roulot, which came in second, and Princess Diana’s favourite wine Joseph Drouhin Clos de Muches, which came in fifth. The judges, France as a nation and the wine industry were all stunned by the result.

The ultimate story of competitive defeat occurred in Switzerland, at the sleepy town of Neuchatel on the shores of a lake. The famous Neuchatel observatory trials were the place where the best Swiss clockmakers battled it out to establish themselves as the chronometry kings. In 1967, however, Seiko watches produced by the Japanese companies in the Suwa Seikosha and Daini Seikosha facilities placed fourth, fifth and eighth in an open competition with the best Swiss watchmakers. The Swiss watchmaking industry was shocked by this shot across the bow.(Omega De Ville Replica Watches)

Birth of an iconic brand

Let's give a brief history of Seiko. Time-lapse back 100 years and then spin the globe 9.520 km away. The Meiji period, which began in Japan in 1868, was a time of promise and possibilities. The nation was transitioning from a feudal society based on isolationism into a modern nation state. This was a simple decision. In order for Japan to flourish, it needed to adopt and study the most advanced technological advancements in the West. This also meant switching to the Gregorian Calendar and 24-hour day. This led to an influx of imported pocket and clock watches.
