Outstanding Achievements

Legendary Seiko watch designer, Nobuhiro Kosugi has been honored for his outstanding achievements by the Government of Japan, who presented him with the Medal with a Yellow Ribbon. The Japanese Government gives this award to individuals who, through their diligence and perseverance in their professional activities, become public role models.

Kosugi who has been involved in watch design and development for about four decades has a long list of career achievements. He was instrumental in designing the three Seiko watches that were awarded by Good Design Award, and was also in charge of designing the Grand Seiko SBGJ005, which won the Petite Aiguille prize at the 2014 Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève.

Kosugi is renowned for designing luxury watches which are imbued with the distinctive style that evokes the Japanese sense of beauty. These design marvels are made together with Seiko’s master craftsmen Satoshi Hiraga, Kiyoshi Terui, and other outstanding Japanese craftsmen such as the Urushi lacquer and enamel artists. A recent example of Kosugi’s unique design capability is the innovative Fugaku Tourbillon Limited Edition, which showcases the seamless integration of the tourbillon, metal engraving, and lacquer work. This unique timepiece is a splendid symbol of Kosugi’s immense talent and design capabilities.
