WBOTD 11/2/12 SEKONDA

Post by Ocean » Fri Nov 02, 2012 3:43 am

My personal thought, is it the Invicta of the UK? They have been contacted to talk about themselves here. Also most models under a 100£ and yes they do have a Tourbillon. Slogan for them is The UK's No. 1 Watch Brand - Beware of Expensive Imitations.

http://www.sekonda.co.uk

SEKONDA has been the best selling watch brand in the UK for the past 20 years. The range consists of high quality, attractive watches which are outstanding value for money.

Since the brand was launched in 1966, SEKONDA has shown the ability to innovate and produce extensions to the brand with the addition of Xpose, Safari and most recently SEKSY and ONE.

SEKONDA is committed to producing high quality watches by using top quality movements, strict manufacturing specifications, rigorous testing, quality control and providing a two year guarantee.

In order to remain the UK's biggest and best known watch brand, SEKONDA consistently reviews and extends its ranges.

This is what I thought, too. Perhaps this is a revival brand, although I would have thought they could have found a better name to bring back from the dead.

Think the name itself was a Seiko "look alike" marketing shit at the time.

Thank you that is what I thought when I was looking at a vintage but came up with this.
