The Ornate Secrets Inside Japan’s Seiko Masterpieces

High watchmaking isn't reserved for the Swiss. Japan has been crafting some of the world's best timepieces for well over a century, and today, Credor (a division of Seiko) is making the very best Japan has to offer. The watches at the top of Credor's lineup are the Spring Drive Minute Repeater and the Eichi II. They couldn't be more different: The former is an ornate creation that chimes the time, and the latter is a restrained watch that gives only hours, minutes, and seconds. Here's an inside look at both.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
