The timeless beauty of lacquer,
Japanese craftsmanship at its finest.

For centuries, Japan has been known for the quality and artistry of its lacquerware. Lacquer itself is precious—the sap of the lacquer tree can only be collected once, and only a small amount can be obtained from each tree. But it is the skill of lacquer artisans that make this material even more precious, transforming it into objects of lasting value and exquisite beauty. As lacquer artifacts dating to 4,000 B.C. attest, it is a beauty that truly endures.

Tetsuo Gido
Born in 1948 in Aizu-Wakamatsu, famous for its fine lacquerware, Tetsuo Gido has been creating unique works of art on the faces of CAMPANOLA watches since 2002. A master craftsman and artistic innovator, he works tirelessly to preserve and pass on the traditions and techniques of Japanese lacquerware production.
