While I’m out looking for factory outlets for branded goods, the spouse hunted down a factory outlet for designer watches. This watch factory in Hokkaido was busy at work when we arrived and they were really working with all kinds of machines with linear bearings as far as i can see. Designers watches manufactured here for big brand companies were selling the watches at only 30% of the original asking price because of a small flaw to the watches. If you are not an expert in watches, you will probably not notice the flaw at all but since perfection is the middle name for the Japanese, we were able to buy a few watches to bring home to re-sell. Pretty smart of us don’t you think?
