[Made to order] 1 month to 1 month and a half
Koji Shinohara, a pioneer of Japanese hand-made watches and a watchmaker who works on the watch brand KS. The "Lost Future" series, which incorporates the world view of steampunk into watches and makes the watch itself look like a machine that is about to start moving, and the "Wadokei" series, which goes well with Japanese clothing as well as everyday use. Based on the concept of "fusion of concepts to be done", a wide variety of handmade watches are produced.
Koji Shinohara was inspired to start producing handmade watches when he met at a small watch factory in Hong Kong. When I was working for a trading company after graduating from university, I went on a business trip to Hong Kong, where I happened to be in charge, and visited a watch assembly factory to sell parts. There, I saw five or six people diligently assembling clocks in a small room. Mr. Shinohara, who thought that making a wristwatch required a large-scale, specialized facility, said that the moment he saw the scene, he felt that wristwatch making was something that he could do himself.
Mr. Shinohara, who had always been a big fan of wristwatches, buying watches every time he traveled overseas, devoted himself to making watches for half a year after meeting him in Hong Kong. At the age of 29, he set up a small watch studio in Kichijoji, Tokyo, and produced original watches using various materials such as paper, brass, and silver. Gradually, he began to attract the attention of media such as magazines and television, and young people aspiring to become watchmakers and apprentices began to visit Mr. Shinohara.
In 1997, JHA (Japan Handcraft-Watch Association) was established to support artists' activities such as learning watchmaking techniques and supplying parts. Even now, while producing his own works, he is also working hard to nurture the next generation. Young people who aspire to become watchmakers love him as a master, and he is active in the development of the world of handcrafted watches.
