Two locations in Japan, two studios and three movements
The Grand Seiko Studio Shizukuishi is located in the mountainous area of Iwate prefecture in Northern Japan while the Shinshu Watch Studio is surrounded by the beautiful mountains and lakes of Shinshu in the center of the country.
While having different locations and histories, the two studios are equally committed to the same, strict standards of Grand Seiko’s philosophy of manufacture and every detail from development, design and manufacturing to assembly and adjustment is meticulously planned and conducted in-house.

ーfrom the Hi-Beat 36,000 to 28,800 vph.
ーbringing together mechanical and electronic watchmaking for the best of both worlds
