Setting hands

GS/TP watches are made and assembled in Tokyo. Accurate and dependable Japanese movements are housed in three-part cases, custom-milled from stainless steel blocks, with engraved crowns and crystals. Hands are pressed from sheet steel, and are blued or polished, depending on the dial colour with which they are to be paired, before being filled egg-yolk yellow, by hand. The dials are cut from brass, dial feet are soldered into place to locate the dial onto the movement, and the dials are painted with a base layer of black or cream before being pad printed. Pad printing requires a soft etched pad to be inked and stamped precisely onto the dial, leaving a clean, slightly raised design. Separate pads are used for each colour printed onto the dial.
Watches are then assembled and adjusted by hand, using fine hand tools.
