VOL.01 The World of the Independent Watchmaker - Interview with Mr. Makihara's Workshop

Guest: Mr. Daizo Makihara

In this interview, we visited Mr. Makihara's workshop to discuss "What is an independent watchmaker?" and "The journey to becoming an independent watchmaker" with Mr. Nobukazu Fujimoto, the lead instructor at our academy and an acquaintance of Mr. Makihara. We delved into the trials, preparations, and support from people that led to the establishment of his brand and owning his own workshop.
