His achievements include being awarded the title of Contemporary Master Craftsman by the Japanese Government in 2008 and the Medal with Yellow Ribbon by the emperor of Japan in 2015.

Grand Seiko was established as a brand in 1960 and is seen as representing the pinnacle of Japanese watchmaking. The opening of Seiko’s own boutique in Knightsbridge last year provided the perfect platform for the brand to showcase its higher-end watches, along with the Grand Seiko range.
