The history of Sekonda watches began in Moscow in 1930 with the founding of the First State Watch Factory, the Soviet watch manufacturer. Created under orders of Stalin, the First State Watch Factory was the initial Soviet attempt at manufacturing watch movements and watches. During World War II the factory was briefly evacuated but upon it’s return to Moscow it absolutely was renamed the First Moscow Watch Factory. Through the Soviet era this factory manufactured many watches, notably Poljot watches. These watches were utilized by the Soviet Armed Forces and were needed to be of a quite high quality as a result. The factory also manufactured the air force standard issue ‘Navigator’ watch worn by Yuri Gagarin on his historic first manned space flight.
The Petrodvorets Watch Factory may be the oldest factory in Russia. The factory, positioned in Saint Petersburg, was founded by Peter the Great in 1721, and since 1962, has manufactured Raketa watches.
In 1966, Sekonda was founded in the United Kingdom. Sekonda imported the Poljot and Raketa watches from the USSR and re-badged them with the Sekonda name. These high quality, reliable watches were relatively cheap and were very successful. Due to the introduction of quartz movements, Sekonda moved production to Hong Kong and began making more fashionable watches with this particular new technology. Excellent marketing skills and a range of great watches led Sekonda to offer more watches than every other brand in the UK in 1988. This position has been held ever since as a result of an ever expanding, innovative range of watches.
In 1998, the watch market started to expand with a number of fashion watch brands designing and manufacturing their very own fashion watches. 勞力士回收 Instead of increasing the general sales of watches, this resulted in market share being spread more thinly across all the watch brands and it became clear that Sekonda watches would have to diversify in order to maintain its market leading position.
In 2004, Sekonda watches added the stylish and contemporary ladies Seksy watch line to it’s range. The Seksy watch range was to be targeted at the 25 to 35 age bracket and would build on the well known and successful Sekonda watch brand name. This brand recognition would instil customer confidence in this new range of ladies Seksy watches. The original Seksy watch range consisted of eleven watch models and with some excellent marketing campaigns and some very clever and innovative watch designs, a number of these Seksy ladies watches quickly became best sellers. The success of the Seksy watch brand prompted Sekonda to expand the Seksy watch line to around thirty models inside a year.
A year after the launch of the ladies Seksy watches, Sekonda introduced the Sekonda One range of watches. The Sekonda One watches are fashion watches targeted at men and, similarly to the ladies Seksy watches, adhere to Sekonda’s winning philosophy of offering excellent quality watches at a low cost point. Both lines have since been heavily advertised.
A very popular Seksy watch line may be the Seksy Hidden Hearts ladies watch, a polished chrome plated bracelet watch comprising of interlinked heart shapes forming the bracelet and case, a mother of pearl dial and Swarovski crystals set in the case and dial with a superior quality Japanese quartz movement. Another popular Seksy watch may be the Seksy Eclipse ladies watch, a Swarovski stone set chrome plated quartz watch by having an ‘eclipse’ design incorporated to the case and each watch link. Other ladies Seksy watches range from the Seksy Curve ladies watch and the Seksy Electra ladies watch, both chrome plated, stone set contemporary designs with beautiful shapes.
Sekonda’s main line of watches consist of several gold and chrome plated dress watches for men and women with nearly every style imaginable. Many watch lines use popular expanding bracelets for convenience and standard bracelet watches and leather strap watches may also be obtainable in abundance, all with the same high quality and standards of workmanship which have resulted in a less than 1% return rate.
For their outstanding affordability, Sekonda watches have been the UK’s best selling watch brand for the last two decades.
