Google has a page which tracks statistics for different search terms.

The Seiko statistics ( shows a few interesting things.

- Searches for Seiko has fallen by 50 % since 2004 and the fall is constant year over year (presumably this is percentage of searches rather than absolute numbers)
- Most searches for Seiko come from Singapore and Hong Kong. Greece is the best Europeans but is just beating Cuba.
- Searches for Seiko is much higher in December.
- Searches for "Seiko saat" is rising quickly, but it turns out that this means "Seiko watch" in Turkish.

There is probably a lot more to find.

Interesting that Citizen watch has had a similar decline, yet citizen eco drive has doubled in the same time period.

Also interesting is the spike in interest late in the year with seiko and the 2 other searches I described. I guess that is the christmas shoppers.

Casio watch is flat yet G Shock has tripled since 2009 alone.

Trends come and go. Most of the time I don't use "seiko" when performing a search, just the model number/nickname. But I guess we're in the minority.

Then by all rights these should be getting LESS expensive, not more, right? I'll give $100 for your mint 6105-8000 proof/proof, since prices should be dropping.
