The Seiko Watch Corporation has been making watches since 1881. The company offers watches for both men and women in sports and dress styles. The watches are available in quartz, spring drive, kinetic and mechanical options and can be purchased at most major retail stores, department stores and some jewelry stores. The chronograph alarm watch utilizes a stopwatch function that can measure to fractions of a second. Setting the chronograph alarm watch can be accomplished in a few basic steps.
