The Grand Seiko Studio Shizukuishi opens its doors
A new chapter in the 60-year history of Grand Seiko opens with the inauguration of an entirely new studio dedicated to the production of Grand Seiko’s mechanical watches. It will be home to the craftsmen and women who assemble and adjust each and every Grand Seiko mechanical watch. The Grand Seiko Studio Shizukuishi was declared opened end of July in a ceremony that took place simultaneously in Tokyo and Shizukuishi. At this occasion, Shinji Hattori, Chairman and CEO of Seiko Watch Corporation, said: “The studio provides the ideal environment for our craftsmen and women to bring Grand Seiko’s mechanical watches to life and for the next generation of watchmakers to be trained and their skills developed. It embodies Grand Seiko’s philosophy, The Nature of Time, and is clear evidence of our dedication to the art of mechanical watchmaking”.
