Radio Controlled Watches / Encrusting Machines
The fascinating stories and secrets behind hit Japanese products, plus parts and machines that boast the top share of niche markets. In the first half of the show, we cover the world's first full metal case radio controlled watch, created by a Japanese watch manufacturer in 2003. In the second half: devices known as encrusting machines, which make food items with fillings. We visit the Japanese company that makes these devices which are used in over 126 countries and regions worldwide.
