To kick start his endorsement of SEIKO, Wang
Leehom has already teamed up with renowned award-winning Japanese director Kenshin Nawa and advertising photographer Koji Kayano to embark on the production of a brand new series of TV commercials and advertisements for SEIKO.

The shootings were conducted back in Taipei
during a cold weather spell in January. Despite the tough conditions, Wang Leehom still managed to endure them and displayed his reliability as a professional artist while giving creative input and insights on the production.
