Made in Japan, one step ahead
Inspired by the Swiss Made regulations, JUNZEN is dedicated to revitalizing Japan's small and medium-sized watch industry through a commitment to using Japanese-made components for every part of our watches. With the exception of the strap and a few components like O-rings which we couldn't source domestically, the entirety of the watch body is made in Japan.
