Incredible post. I wonder if these facilities are still in one piece after last week's earthquake since Shizukuishi is located within the Iwate prefecture in north eastern Japan close to the epicenter.

If after reading and seeing this manufacturing compilation that only goes to reaffirm the prowess of Seiko as a world class watch manufacturing giant, nothing will.....
