As Canada’s only top-end luxury mechanical watch brand, Rufus Gerard holds a strong appeal for collectors, and occupies a strong position within the hyper-competitive global luxury mechanical watch marketplace.


The Rufus Gerard luxury watch brand was made possible by an international design collaboration between renowned Canadian artist Rufus Lin and the world class Shizukuishi Studio in Japan, the only collaboration of its kind outside Japan.


Manufacturing is carried out as part of a long-term business partnership between Kakkazan Innovations Inc. of Vancouver, Canada, parent company of the Rufus Gerard Watch Company, and Seiko Instruments Inc. of Morioka, Japan.


Kakkazan Innovations Inc is a broad-based corporate group founded as a federal corporation in Canada in 2000 and currently employing over 40 people. The company is involved in various businesses, including technical translation, and it has offices in Vancouver and Tokyo.


In its unique position as Canada’s first serious luxury watch brand (other than the house brands of jewellers), the Rufus Gerard Watch Company is driven by a clear vision of delivering beautiful, rare and satisfying timepieces to those who appreciate such fine objects.
