Grand Seiko Modern Master Craftsman Ikukiyo Komatsu was in town to demonstrate the art of assembling a spring drive timepiece.
This bureau thinks that watching making and surgery have a few things in common. They have the shared characteristics of a large amount of training, a long tradition, but also interest in new technology. Then of course there’s the importance of a steady hand. When asked for his opinion, Komatsu said that he shared the focus for the client.
This was of course to promote Grand Seiko’s time pieces of which the spring drive is their signature feature. They may not save lives like a surgeon, but they certainly enrich lives and inspire people to live great ones.
