Seiko will also hold an event called ‘Time to Shine’, which aims to support the next generation of athletes.

True to the company’s group slogan — Moving ahead. Touching hearts. — Seiko aims to inspire sports fans around the world by using state-of-the-art equipment to provide accurate timing and measurement, and through continuing to support the next generation of athletes.
