Grand Seiko Masterpiece Collection
A unique series from a unique watchmaking studio
Deep within the Shiojiri facility of Seiko Epson where all Grand Seiko Spring Drive and quartz watches are made is a small studio where, since 2000, an elite team of the company’s most skilled and talented watchmakers have been creating masterpiece watches based on the unique Spring Drive technology. In English as well as Japanese, a sign on the wall quietly announces the studio’s philosophy, namely to create watches that are “reliable to wear until grandchildren” and the “pride of Japan.” The determination to be excellent and the humanity of the Micro Artist team shine through their words. The Micro Artist Studio made its first Grand Seiko watch in 2016.
