Japanese watchmaker's Grand Seiko - in pictures

Japanese firms such as Seiko and Citizen are challenging traditional makers of high-end timepieces in Switzerland

Once they’ve been checked through microscopes for precision and packed in satin-lined boxes, luxury timepieces by Seiko, Citizen and others are shipped off to Rodeo Drive or Knightsbridge boutiques, where they’ll sell for thousands of dollars. Models such as the Grand Seiko commands a price of $58,000.
